About Cafe Paci

​The second incarnation of Cafe Paci has found a home on King Street in the eclectic inner western suburb of Newtown. Part wine bar, part restaurant, this lively, bustling little venue is well placed in this quirky, offbeat suburb, and often has queues snaking down the street.

The more formal, tasting menu of the former Paci is gone, replaced with a very on-trend wine bar offering of down-sized sharing dishes. Dark molasses rye bread, potato dumplings with XO sauce, and devilled eggs with trout roe are just a few of the current staples, by Finnish-born chef & owner Pasi Petanen. The dishes will fly out of the kitchen one by one, which is just as well, as the tables are too tiny to indulge in the full spread at any one time.

Sit at the bar and get a glimpse of the chefs in action, or settle in at a table for a slightly more relaxed experience.

About the Cafe Paci Wine List

Wine here is selected from a short, snappy list of cutting edge, mainly Italian offerings, exceptionally well priced and expertly delivered. Assembled by Sydney's zany Italian-in-chief Giorgio di Maria, an ever-reliable companion when exploring the world of boutique Italian wine. Away from Italy, expect an offering of pan-European and domestic wines that lean towards the fun and the natural.
