We dined upstairs. Loved the mirrors and candles, lighting and overall ambiance. The service & food was great.
The menu here is always varied and interesting, and never 'typically Italian'. But everything is delicious and we often just trust the degustation offerings.
OdR&R never fails to impress and caters for everyone from the adventurous to the conservative palate.
Easily our favourite inner west fine dining restaurant.
Pasta was excellent and the Eggplant side was also delicious however the Trout was a bit soggy.
Very small portions for the price paid
The food is always wonderful, and the service is classic old world professional Italian service. Its like being in a great family owned restaurant in Italy, but with more modern, creative food. A fantastic night out.
Great food and fantastic service - we had a terrific time celebrating a special birthday ! Thank you all
A great local Italian, with delicious food and outstanding service. Highly recommend
Great food, wine and service. Would highly recommend :)
A refreshingly genuine experience - it’s clear the team take pride in the quality of their food and sourcing of raw ingredients. Knowledgeable, amiable staff. Warm, charming atmosphere. It’s hard to pick a favourite dish, they’re all memorable. Looking forward to working my way through the menu!
Food was delcious as always and a creative blend of traditional Italian with an Australian influence. Always soemthing interesting on the menu.
Very good food. Decent price point. Would recommend.
Amazing food and vibe! Thanks for hosting us so well in this complex COVID environment.
Beautiful setting, very friendly service, just a disappointed by the set menu and temperature of the food. The share element was not explained making the value very questionable.
Probably wouldn’t return.
Our favourite special occasion restaurant. Delicious food and wine options, you can order from the menu or choose the degustation options.
It’s hard to pick something from the menu menu because everything is so good! There is also an option for a set menu with matching wine for a really food price. Wine list was amazing and service impeccable.
Absolutely delicious dinner and a perfect venue. Can’t wait to go again.
Fabulous local eatery that never disappoints. Eye-catching and mouth-watering Italian-influenced dishes that you won’t find everywhere.
My friend and i dined at Russo and Russo on a friends recommendation.
The food was excellent but the portions reminded one of the 70's and 80's nouvelle cuisine so hence not value for money.
Highly recommend the Fixed price menu with wine. Every course was magnificent supported by fantastic service!
The food was spectacular and they were happy to cater to requests and changes, the ambience and seating were perfect and the staff made an extra effort to help make my boyfriend’s birthday really special. We had a really lovely time!
great innovative cuisine. Def try the artichoke dessert!
Best Italian restaurant in inner west. Love their pasta!
We love this place, the staff and food are consistently wonderful. The limoncello is phenomenal!!
As always excellent, friendly, knowledgeable service, delicious food and interesting wine.
The Truffle degustation dinner was fabulous. The food was amazing and superbly paired with a plentiful flow of Italian wines I would highly recommend such dinners and look forward to going back to Russo & Russo for their next degustation feature dinner.
Excellent food, but particularly impressed by our waiter. He made some great recommendations and really contributed to our experience. Have already recommended Russo & Russo to friends following our visit.
Had an amazing night! Thanks for looking after us so well.
Wonderful food, wine and service and they made the whole COVID safe aspect easy and friendly. Wait staff wore masks and took us through the hand sanitiser and check in via QR code really efficiently. The food here really is exceptional - such true, delicious dishes. Pure pleasure to join them
Highly recommend the saltbush gnocchi and ragu - extremely delicious! Also recommend doing the tasting menu, everything on it was very tasty. The zucchini flower batter was light and crunchy and so good! Really anything you order will be tasty.
2nd time, under much different circumstances (Covid pandemic) - but excellent again. The hidden gem in Enmore - lovingly presented food, great service, a wonderful dining experience
We went for our first wedding anniversary as it's our regular restaurant for special occasions and the food, wine & service did not disappoint. We will continue to come back
We enjoyed absolutely every part of our dining experience at Osteria di Russo & Russo. The wait staff were wonderful and had brilliant food and wine knowledge. We loved each of the dishes we selected from start to finish. Beautiful italian flavours with innovative use of some native australian ingredients to add a bit of flare. Can’t wait to return.
food was lovely and the wines are great, staff are very attentive. Sat by the door though so not ideal but this is our second time dining here so definitely recommend
Food was amazing and lovely service. Really cute dark lit ambience. Definitely coming back again
An evening at Russo the wine and drinks selection is excellent; and the service is warm and highly competent and professional.
The duck liver parfait, the smoked swordfish, and the gnocchi ragu were standouts, but there's never an ordinary dish at R & R !
The COVID-19 arrangements are excellent from the front door to the service close. Probably selfishly we enjoyed it even more because the physical distancing made it cosy and noise levels perfect, the music is always great as well.
It was a birthday celebration so a deliciously pretty biscotti dish with a Happy Birthday closed the evening !
We will be back again and again
Doesn't Dissappoint. Great food great service lovely and quiet and intimate.
This place is so cosy. Delicious food, the perfect amount of service and lovely all round.
Great meal and ambiance. We will be back.
My first time here fir my partner’s birthday. Everything was exceptional. Our waiter was attentive and extremely knowledgeable about. The menu and wine. We had the best experience. The degustation with matching wines! Superb!
