Criniti’s comes to Sydney Harbour dining precinct


Sydney’s Finger Wharf at Woolloomooloo, is offering a taste of Italian glamour with the official opening of the iconic Italian restaurant CRINITI’S yesterday (17 October).


With three restaurants already in tow, CRINITI’S has opened their fourth restaurant in one of Sydney’s most prestigious food precincts.

CRINITI’S is proud to announce acclaimed chef Jason McCauley will head up the new kitchen with a team dedicated to creating fresh, classical Italian fair with a modern twist.

As keen car enthusiasts, for CRINITI’S Woolloomooloo, the owners have flown in a working Ferrari engine straight from Italy to feature as a permanent fixture within the private dining room.

Keeping with being genuinely Italian, two iconic Ducati motorcycles from Fraser Motorcycles have been suspended above the bar. The Ducati Desmosedici D16RR valued at $104,990 was produced as a limited edition road bike (only 1500 worldwide) and is the closest to being a genuine MotoGP racing bike.

Hanging alongside is the 1199 Panigale S Tricolore Superbike, with its ‘Made in Borgo Panigale’ technological excellence and Tricolour livery, perfectly conveying Ducati’s Authentic Italian Performance and Style. The Ducatis and Ferrari engine combined are valued at a quarter of a million dollars – and that’s just the detailing.

The red carpet event kicks off at 6.30pm with 400 VIP guests set to attend, while Melissa Hoyer – lifestyle commentator, editor at large for www.news.com.au and Sunrise regular, will host the red carpet.

“Woolloomooloo wharf has always been a favourite for great food and a good dose of star-spotting. The addition of a strong, authentic and passionate brand like CRINITI’S will certainly be a welcome addition to Woolloomooloo’s culinary landscape” said Hoyer.

The Woolloomooloo restaurant will be the fourth CRINITI’S in Sydney, adding to eateries at Castle Hill, Parramatta and Darling Harbour. A fifth restaurant is currently under construction and will open in Manly early 2013.
