A special restaurant
Always lovely food and service
It was on a cold Sunday evening so may have been quieter. Have been here a few times and and loved each one.
Being greeted like long lost friends, and yet being given enough space to enjoy our wedding anniversary dinner, the food and accompanying wines were divine and our host added nothing but joy to the experience. Cannot recommend highly enough
Lovely cosy atmosphere on a cold night, authentic, imaginative Italian menu, lots of choice, nice vege options, good price for a quality experience. Have already recommended to many friends. A perfect date night venue.
Lovely food. Great service. You won’t regret ordering the 7 courses. Great value for the standard of dishes that you’re getting.
Russo and Russo is just about my favourite restaurant in Sydney. Great food, family tradition, very focused on the food and wine without being at all pretentious, and nice space that is stylish without trying too hard. Great place that we have returned to again and again and never disappointed.
Out third visit to Russo & Russo, always wonderful, different menu making use of whats in season, with some unusual twists like eggplant and chocolate, that always work. Lovely wine list.
We needed to be through quickly to get to the theatre so they rang in advance and recommended we pick our preferred eats prior. Worked very well as was not rushed. Very professional and food delightful
Brought a nice bottle to celebrate a special occasion and picked another couple from the great Wine list, service was friendly and efficient, food was creative and tasty, the Pork Strozzapreti was ridiculous! Prices are reasonable across the board but they do leave the ability to really go in an celebrate if the occasion calls for it (and ours did). Hit the mark on all accounts.
We loved the food, the staff were friendly & efficient, and the owner was charming, friendly and informative. I'd recommend this restaurant anytime!
Outstanding risotto, great personalised service from the owner, small intimate atmosphere. We will be back!
The food was great and real Italian .Staff were helpful and the whole place made you feel that you were in Italy.
We had s very pleasant evening the food and service were great
We had a great night here last Tuesday. We have heard nothing but good things and were wanting to try this place for a while. It didnt dissapoint. The food was exceptional. Fresh, healthy and delicious.
The food was absolutely awesome. Everything had so much flavour. The wine and service were amazing too. We will definitely be back.
Brilliant as always. We have been dining here since it opened and have loved every meal . The food, wine and service are fantastic. Great and different ingredients. We usually have the selection because it is so good and will be tailored to dietary needs if required. Wine list is also excellent. While we live locally at present we will shortly move to the Blue Mountains. That will not stop us returning!
R & R was our fave restaurant in Sydney when we lived there before moving to Newcastle. Whilst staying in Sydney over the long weekend, we went there again and can happily report it's still our fave! They do shared plates with impeccable detail to layers and textures in a cosy setting. And it's BYO too.
Our favorite restaurant in Enmore did not disappoint . Lovely Birthday dinner for my mum. Good and service were great as always.
When we walked in the older gentleman was a treat to speak to. Let us know where we were sitting and wished us a great evening. The restaurant itself is well decorated and laid out. We were excited to be eating here for my birthday. Then came out waitress. Wasn’t the most polite person, and made us all feel as if our simple requests for bread and oil was an outrage.
The food was delicious!!! The only down fall being that 90% of the dishes came out cold. For most of them they should of been served hot to be even more enjoyable.
This was a place I was hoping to continue to come back to, but am not so sure anymore - which is sad as the rest of the staff All had smiles on their faces and were extremely polite
Really nice atmosphere with great service. Food was really interesting and very tasty. Noce modern take on italian dishes.
We celebrated my mums 70th birthday here. We all had the 5 course set menu and every single course was amazing. What I love about the set menu is it’s always different and you get to try dishes you might not normally order (like who thought sweet meats could be so delicious!). The staff were great in explaining all the dishes and had great recommendations from the huge wine list. They even put a candle on mums dessert. For such a quality restaurant it’s super unpretentious and such great value. All the staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. We had the best night and will always find an excuse to come back. Thanks guys!!
Delicious food. Wonderful service. Always a fantastic night out.
We went here for a family birthday . The staff were very accomodating as far as the menu was concerned. The food was very tasty and beautifully presented and the staff were very attentive and caring . Will def be back
Came out to Newtown from Hornsby for my partner's birthday. Worth the travel for sure. We did the Five Course dining experience and walked out of the place perfectly satisfied (not stuffed and not underfed)
Fantastic food, great service and good vibes. They eve. Brought out the desert with a candle and sand happy birthday to her.
Will definitely be back
A very friendly atmosphere and well cooked food. We tried some interesting variations from regional areas of the chef.
Absolutely unique and delicious food. Trust the maitre d to steer your dining experience and you won’t go wrong. Yummo
We had a wonderful Mother's Day dinner at Russo and Russo. The food was amazing, the service was excellent and thoughtfully catered for vegetarian and gluten-free diners. Thank you!
I liked it but didn't LOVE it. Great to see a creative approach to Italian food but the food isn't necessarily better than a good traditional Italian restaurant in my opinion. And without an a la carte menu on the day we dined the format is not as accommodating of diners' individual needs either. I would go back but only on special occasions.
Lovely dinner at Russo & Russo, the restaurant was full, but we were able to have a good conversation. Staff are friendly, pleasant and helpful. The food is delicious and interesting.
Great food and service. Very accommodating to our short time frame as well.
Food and service was good, we had the Va Bene 5 corse with matching wine. My partner is pescatarian which meant we needed to share all meals, I questioned this and apparently it was explained when we were seated.... hence we had cauliflower as the main meal matched with a strong red wine...
We both felt rushed along with our meals and a vibe of wanting to get new people in.
To top things off I specially requested in my booking if they could do something Birthday for my partner, which they suggested a candle in dessert. I agreed to this but unfortunately this was not followed through.
Overall a disappointing experience.
The staff were lovely and the tasting menu was amazing! Left feeling satisfied and relaxed.
Great food, great host, great staff & great ambience. Very lucky to have it in our neighbourhood. Our second trip back and experienced a whole different menu equally as good as the first time.
We absolutely loved russo & russo!!! My taste buds were having a serious party. So many unexpected flavours to turn traditional dishes into something else. Amazing value for money and the cocktails are exquisite !! Can’t wait to have an excuse to go back.
Thanks for another wonderful night Pino and Mark - outstanding as usual!
This restaurant is quite possible the best restaurant I have ever been to.
The food was amazing. Locally sourced ingredients used very creatively. The owners were attentive and helpful in recommending dishes and wines to go with the meal.
Amazing service and one of the best meals Ive ever had! Will go there again and again!
Really enjoyed; consistently good. Beautiful italian wines, beers etc. Excellent service.
Really attentive service and interesting food we will be back
