Every dark cloud has something of a silver lining. At least that’s what we are trying to tell ourselves as the Sydney dining institution, Lucio’s, heads towards its final service at the end of January 2021.

The Italian restaurant, which has served Sydney siders and Paddington locals for nearly 40-years is almost as famous for the art on the walls as it is the food on the plate and together with Bonham’s is offering you the opportunity to own a piece of its history.

The auction will present 200 works that celebrate Lucio and Sally Galletto’s contribution to Australian culinary and art landscapes.

“Food and art for me is like the air that I breathe. I grew up in the family restaurant in Italy where we had an art gallery, so it has always been in my blood. It is very important for me personally and also; I think for our customers as well. The combination of great food, great service and great art on the walls is, in my view, one of the best dining experiences you can imagine,” says Lucio Galletto.

The auction is to be held on the 28 of February and will feature names such as John Olsen, Elisabeth Cummings, Luke Sciberras, Garry Shead, Ann Thomson, Hilarie Mais, John Coburn, Tim Storrier and Sidney Nolan.
