Stefanino Panino is an Italian deli-style sandwich shop, founded by former schoolteacher Stef Condello and his mother Diana Condello. Known for attracting lines and selling out long before lunchtime ends, it originally opened on Lygon Street in Brunswick East before moving to this larger space at Collingwood Yards.

More real-estate means the team has the ability to increase the number of rolls produced per day. And, unlike the Brunswick East original, there’s indoor and outdoor dining, and an espresso machine for coffee.

There are 12 sandwiches on offer, 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). Plus, build-your-own customisable options.

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.
