Stanley Street is a small street in the East Sydney district, which is part of the suburb of Darlinghurst, Sydney, Australia.

Description[edit]

Stanley Street is primarily residential, but was the centre of Sydney's original Italian community in the 1950s and 1960s, and was subsequently part of Sydney's first "Little Italy". Many Italian restaurants and cafes still line the street, and the street is home to the annual Primo Italiano festival.[1]

The Bondi via Paddington tramway ran down Stanley St until its closure and replacement by buses in 1960.[2]
