Food wa delicious. Service was terrible best we’ve had in years!
Delicious food and wonderful service. Would highly recommend sharing all dishes to avoid any food envy!
We were so disappointed at this restaurant. The food was underwhelming, not tasty, (what was the sauce like glue under the brussel sprouts?), mean portions and expensive. They couldn't even make a decent salad. We got a bowl of mainly kale with hardly any dressing. Would not recommend this restaurant at all.
Food was fantastic. Even though we went the 7 course option we left the looking forward to a kabab on the way home. The serving sizes are not nearly big enough.
This could easily be fixed with a bread basket on the side of the table to accompany the meal.
Wine matching was excellent. Service also of a high standard. We liked the simple decor.
House made ginger beer was also excellent and much appreciated by my partner who doesn't drink alcohol - it's rare to find interesting alternatives.
Food was what we wanted - interesting approaches and combinations. We liked the progression of flavours over the 5 courses. Proportions were just right - 5 courses left us feeling satisfied but over full. Pricing was good value for money. Only downside was that it was quite noisy when we arrived - just lots of people talking in a space with hard services. However, this dissipated as earlier guests left, so we know to book either much earlier or a bit later next time. We'll be back. Thanks.
I would recommend but with some qualifications. It is a lovely small restaurant and the service is still really good as is the wine list but I thought the food underwhelming. We went for the degustation menu and wished that we had ordered a la carte. Nothing wrong with the food but we thought it unexciting. I will go back for the good things but with some caution.
Relaxed ambience, knowledgeable and friendly staff and impeccable service–could do with a few more pescatarian options
What a magnificent fall from grace! From what was possibly one of the finest examples of contemporary Italian cuisine in Sydney to bland, tasteless, overpriced, poorly cooked food. Quality of service reflected the food. Don’t bother!
Lovely ambience and fantastic service with a smile from all staff. They were extremely accommodating to everything we needed. The set menu was a good amount of food, however it would have been good to know the Chef’s picks for the set menu before recieving it.
I can’t speak highly enough of the food and the engagement from the staff - the meals are different, very fresh and very authentic. If we lived here we’d be going back - as we don’t we just have to encourage others to book in. Excellent
Wonderful place for a quiet and delicious dinner. The service was great - attentive but discreet. The food delicious light and tasty and the atmosphere cool and calm. Thoroughly recommended.
This is a favourite of ours in the inner west! Great for special occasions, delicious and great value chefs menu. We also like the natural sicilian wines which our could have by the glass.
A great local, but also worth a trip. Menu is interesting and changes from time to time. Service is exceptional - friendly, informal and professional.
One of our favourites in Enmore. Great food every time. We tend to go for the matching wines option as they always bring something different you wouldnt normally try. They do a once a month special degustation. It pays to book early.
A wonderful restaurant with fantastic food, great wines, and lovely staff that make you feel very comfortable. I would recommend any one I know to go to Russo and Russo.
Great family business. Have been coming here since it opened and always blown away by the food and the service
We love Russo and Russo.
At times, servings could be a touch larger and food hotter but overall, we enjoy dining here.
Wine/food pairings very thoughtful.
A lovely restaurant - great food and warm, professional service. Perfect for date night!
Fantastic place! Everything was top notch and it was a great way to finish our vacation
Has always been one of our favourites and as usual did not disappoint. Can highly recommend Russo and Russo.
Keep it up team 🙂 just love your risotto!!
Great service. My husband and I did the tasting menu which was accomodated to my dietary requirements being pregnant.
Love Russo & Russo - one of the few innovative Italian-Australian restaurants in Sydney
We loved every course, from the modern take on zucchini flowers, the oysters special, the deconstructed eggplant parmigiana and the mouth melting gnocchi, everything was bursting with flavors and freshness. The only thing I could fault...there wasn't quite enough food, each course a little on the small side, where mains look more like entrees without the entree price. Overall an great dining experience with the ladies!
Great Dinner. The whole experience was beautiful . We had the 5 course dinner and for $60 I feel it is fantastic value. The food is simple with great fresh flavours and well cooked. Great service and the owner looked after and took great pride in everything.
Very interesting and delicious food every time, love this place.
A little quirky, a piece of Italy in downtown Enmore. Attention from the owner and staff was warm, hospitable and professional. My third time there and as before the food was delicious ! A great experience all round !
Thoroughly enjoyable! Effortless smooth service and beautifully done food. Shall be back.
A very disappointing wine dinner. Food was bland and desperately average and the degustation service was slow.
We have dined here before on a standard menu and it was excellent. I can only think that they overstretced themselves with a full restaurant and couldn’t really deliver.
We were utterly underwhelmed. No wow factor at all and a complete waste of $280.
We were not the only tablesto make this commment so I hope they take note.
Dined here for my father's 65th birthday. It was a fantastic meal and Marc welcomed us all with such warmth.
Absolutely Amazing!! First time at R&R and it definitely won't be the last! Service was impeccable and the staff, including the owner who came to each and every table for a while to chat, were the friendliest!
Included a note in my booking that the dinner was a birthday present for a partner - the owner presented us with small biscuits and sang Happy Birthday! Small initiatives like this make all the difference!
Thank you Russo & Russo!
We asked for the 5 course chef’s selection menu and everything that came out was very good .
The host who greeted us when we arrived was charming and all service was good .
A lovely evening .
Put it on the list, it's a must try restaurant!....an amazing menu and effortlessly delivered!
Get the 7 course with matching wines and let the chef choose. Amazing night.
I took a dear friend for dinner at Russo and Russo, a treat for her coming from the UK. We had a delicious meal and beautiful wine. We shared our entrees and main courses, as recommended by Mark, whose knowledge and passion make the restaurant all that it is. The quirky decor, the dripping candles, the Italian lessons playing in the bathrooms! The food was exquisite, our favourite was the chargrilled Riverina lamb with broad beans, preserved lemon and curd, the lamb was pink and full of flavour, complimented by the tangy lemon and crunch of the small broad beans. Closely followed by the fried zucchini flowers, the crunchiness together with the creamy ricotta , lemon aspen and chili salt was a taste sensation.
The perfect place for a special night.
I was looking forward to dining ar Russo & Russo. The interiors and ambiance met with my expections, but I found the food to be overly rich and unimaginative. The most tasty dish was a starter plate of fried zucchini flowers with goat cheese and what tasted like a grapefruit jam. Great combo. Sadly, the octopus was 'meh', as were the oysters. For mains, I could have cooked The lamb and eggplant dishes at home myself, and i cant recall the other dish, it was that unmemorable. For the price, I believe Russo & Russo can do much better.
Exceptional food, and the 5 course set menu was good value.
We're from the Netherlands and we reserved a tabel at this restaurant after a tip from a colleague of our Sydney office. We did not know there was a special 6 course diner the night we reserved.
For each course there was a special wine selected. As we don't eat meat they adjusted one course for us which was great. We loved the food, the wine and the atmosphere in the restaurant. Would definitely eat here again when we're back in Sydney (hopefully soon :-) ).
We had an excellent night and the staff were wonderful, attentive and helpful with suggestions.
Our first time and service was great and the food was amazing. We will definitely be back again.
Nice ambience. Food is good, but nothing outstanding. Probably more focussed on presentation over taste.
