Collingwood Yards is getting a new tenant. Stefanino Panino, the beloved Italian sandwich shop on Lygon Street in Brunswick East, announced that it’s moving to the arts precinct in late November.

The new venue is designed by architecture firm Simulaa, and will give the team the ability to increase the number of rolls produced per day. Unlike the Brunswick East store, there’ll be indoor and outdoor dining, an espresso machine and, if all goes according to plan, a liquor licence in the new year.

The Italian deli-style sandwich shop, founded by former schoolteacher Stef Condello and his mother Diana Condello, opened in July last year and has been known to attract lines and sell out long before lunchtime ends.

The shop offers 12 classics including the Roma (porchetta, roasted pepper, provolone, rocket and Dijon mustard), the Il Manzo (rare roast beef, provolone, picked and roasted peppers, red onion and Dijon mustard) and the Bologna (plain or peppercorn mortadella, stracciatella, pickled peppers and olives) as well as build-your-own customisable options.

The sandwiches are made on ciabatta rolls from Natural Tucker, in operation since 1984 and one of Melbourne’s oldest traditional sourdough bakeries. There is also a gluten-free option made on Turkish rolls from gluten-free bakery Caffe Strada.

Stefanino Panino is set to open at Collingwood Yards at 35 Johnston St, Collingwood in November.
