“In either case, Marta is delicious, unpretentious, hospitable, flexible and fairly priced. Reminds me of this little place on the Via del Leone…” John Lethlean
“Not to be outdone are the Roman style pizzas…the margherita boasts a big red sauce, fior di latte, reggiano and basil leaves. It’s one of the best I’ve ever had” Anthony Huckstep
“Flavio drew on his Roman experience for MARTA’s recipes and traditional settimana romana — a weekly calendar of daily specials — served under the stewardship of head chef Christuan Jordaan.” Shaya Laughlin
“There’s a depth and elegance to the hospitality at MARTA that packages up the food offering and lifts it to the next level” Terry Durack
“This is where you can take a dining chair tour of Rome, with a greatest hits menu inspired by the ten years Carnevale spent there working.” Emily Lloyd-Tait
Rushcutter’s locale, Popolo, is gearing up for their final service this weekend and while they’re not travelling too far—reopening…
Popolo’s big sister restaurant will plate up Roman street foods like fried mozzarella sandwiches, gnocchi fritti and all of the spritz.
Popolo owner Flavio Carnevale is relocating his Southern Italian restaurant to the city. Your last opportunity to eat at Popolo in Rushcutters Bay is on August 13, before it is replaced by a neighbourhood osteria called Marta’s, also by Carnevale.
Regional Italian cooking is back on the radar in Sydney with the imminent arrival of Marta, which opens in Rushcutters Bay in September.
Keen to gift Rushcutters Bay with an authentic taste of Rome, Flavio Carnevale is pulling up stumps on his southern Italian-inspired Popolo to make way for a new venture, MARTA.
