Open since 2009, Formaggi Ocello was born after a Euro trip inspired couple Carmelo
and Sogna Ocello to import the finest and rarest Italian cheeses they could convince
customs to let into the country. Since then, the couple have introduced many lesser
known Italian cheeses to the Australian market, like the Robiola di Capra and mixed milk
Robiola. Although Ocello sells over 200 cheeses, their smoked mozzarella ($18) is the
shop’s real treat, a rarity even in most Italian regions. Coated in a soft, smoked shell, the
mozzarella’s creamy filling is worth the slightly hefty price tag.
