Fantastic and exciting Italian food. An early booking is quieter but really loud when the night is in full swing
great experience and very accommodating , my friends had a great birthday dinner and definitely worth visit again
Great location and food was amazing . Thank you
Highly recommended it
What a gorgeous neighbourhood gem. Pino was an absolute charmer, the service was warm and knowledgable, the setting is so beautiful and the food was absolutely yummy. We will be making this place a regular haunt!!
The presentation was great and I guess the food was good. I am not much of a judge because I am not used to up market food. We were told that the dishes were designed to be shared so ordered 1 dish between two. This was a mistake as the servings were too small for that. We won't be going back in a hurry. The deserts were good. We ordered one each of those.
I love coming to this place. The food is delicious, authentic Italian food. The service is impeccable and friendly and the wine pairing was perfect. Would definitely recommend this as a good night out
Have eaten there appreciatively in the past, and after a two year break I was pleased to see that the trajectory has gone higher. Well done. Beautiful meal and service. We were charmed and grateful.
Amazing food, lovely service. We were given gift vouchers as a present, but I would definitely go back on my own money. It was wonderful.
Great food and great atmosphere. Am definitely making this place a regular.
Love this restaurant! The best food, service and wine selection!
The 5 course share menu is fabulous and the food is amazing!
Simply perfect. Love the food here. Have eaten an Russo & Russo 4 or 5 times and consistently brilliant. Look forward to eating there again.
We had an amazing evening at Osteria di Russo & Russo. The staff were so accommodating. 12 people at the table and we were all catered for, on time with 1 tiny exception, but it didn't matter, we had such a great night, food was terrific, ambience great. It's our second time there and we will be back. Highly recommend. They catered for a large group really really well.
Was nice to try for the first time but a bit hit and miss, my wife and I had the 5 course menu with wine, the starters were good along with the matching wine, the mains were where the issues arose, the pasta was very bland, no salt in the boiling water I presume, but it was sort of saved by the wine and the duck hadn't been rendered properly therefore it was a bit chewy but the wine helped that as well, the dessert was really good as was the wine, all in all we had a good night, the staff were great and knew what they were talking about and I think we would have no hesitation in visiting again or recommending it to other people
I went with my partner last year and couldnt recommend it enough. This time round I took my friends and it was disappointing. The portions were quite small for 3 people and they kept forgetting the wine with each course. It was like a totally different ambiance and service.
Very welcoming and warm upon arrival. We loved the atmosphere and personalised service. Our dietary needs were catered for and enjoyed the share meal selection where every meal was delicious. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be returning.
As always, Russo & Russo have delivered. Loved every minute of our dinner - the staff make you feel welcome from the minute you walk through the door. Food was amazing again! We will keep coming back.
5 courses with paired wines was great! Service is great and courses are well timed.
Menu was very limited. A couple of dishes quite flavoursome but the rest very average. Waiters didn’t seem to listen. Ordered pastry with cup of tea that never came.
Fantastic sevice. We had the seven course set menu for 3 people and the waiter was flexible in the selection of the dishes. There were a couple of misses but overall the food was excellent. Would definitely go again.
Absolutely incredible dining experience. The food was so amazing, unique, and unpretentious. We also enjoyed the wine pairing option with our meals, and each one complimented the meal so perfectly. Would recommend to anyone looking for a treat in Enmore.
First time there, everything was great especially our server Fiddy. Thanks Fiddy ;)
First time dining there would definitely come back and/or recommend. The food was very good, ordered more or less entrees to share. Asked to sit at the bar although we had a table, could see that’s where the fun would be, the staff lovely, One change id recommend would be to stop clearing the drinks and meals so quickly! Owner is a charming and attentive host. Enmore rd is fabulous!
Great little gem in the Inner West and a great place to go pre theatre.
Gnocchi and Zucchini Flowers soo good.
Innovative Italian cuisine with a great wine list ( the list contains many wines not seen elsewhere) all delivered by very knowledgeable professional staff who are attentive but not prying. Best of all it is great value.
one of the best restaurants in sydney. we consider it a regular on our annual dining calendar.
We were heading to the Enmore Theatre only to find our show, Mario Biondi, had been cancelled, therefore it could have been a disastrous birthday celebration for our two Sicilian friends if not for Russo and Russo.
This charming restaurant was such a find! Warm welcome, ambient space and what a surprising menu.
Perfect cocktails set the mood, we chose the 5 course option and selected a white and red from a more than decent Wine list.
Every dish was delightfully presented and introduced by waitstaff that were eager to talk about their food with such passion.
We were asked for our favourite dish of the night but it was too hard to distinguish, in my opinion, I cannot understand why this is not a hatred restaurant. It is plain to see from there is a lot of experience behind both the creativity in the kitchen and genuine passion on the floor and the genuine hospitality was so refreshing!
We will return with like minded friends as soon as we can, as for Mr Biondi? Catch you next time you’re in town!
First time there most definitely won’t be the last it was everything and more that I had hoped it would be.
Fabulous food and ambience can’t wait to come back
Great dining experience - excellent customer experience and wonderful food.
We enjoyed Russo and Russo very much, the food was wonderful, the wine was great and the service was warm, welcoming and efficient.
My friend and I had a wonderful celebratory dinner here. The service by Pino was exceptional. I’ve been here several times and the food has always been excellent. Knowing this I suggested we get the 5 dish chef’s menu. My friend and I enjoyed every surprise course and the cocktail of the night. Dessert was a dulce de leche delight. Highly recommend.
Very disappointed with the quality of the dishes, especially for the price. Been to a few degustations over the years and this was unfortunately the least memorable. I was really looking forward to the pasta dish, esp as they specialise in Italian food, but it was the worst dish of the day. And the wine paired with it was not nice nor did it complement the bland dish. Only highlight was service was fantastic!
The most friendly staff and able to accommodate dietary requirements when they had the set menu. Quality fresh ingredients.
A beautiful meal with lovely staff. Had a great time.
Once again such an amazing dining experience, so intimate and the food was beautiful. Can’t wait to come back!
Excellent food, great atmosphere. Perfect for date night
Service was very slow to start. Our predinner drinks ended up coming with entrees. A problem when a drinks menu has cocktails and they take second priority to more easily served wine. Thought oysters were not helped with Quandong dressing, oyster flavour was smothered. Venison and Duck dishes were good. Found it odd that waitress poured olive oil into a bowl on table, never offered bread and later on removed the bowl.
I've been going to Russo & Russo for a number of years now, but it seems to have changed a bit recently. The atmosphere feels a bit more sterile, a bit less homely. The service was fair - staff were friendly enough, however felt insincere and superficial, and didn't seem super knowledgable about the menu. I have Coeliac disease and asked for a gluten free chef's menu, however had to send a dish back as was served gluten. Not the end of the world, but if I hadn't noticed, would have been quite painful. The food was delicious but mostly room temperature, including risotto, which would've been nicer hot. I miss the old days of authentic staff & a warm, casual atmosphere.
We had dinner at this restaurant on Tuesday night and were so disappointed with the service. It was like we had been absolutely forgotten. We had the 5 course degustation, arriving at 745pm and didn't get the final course to close to midnight . Food was good but it was almost 45mins between the first and second course and were starving. We always support local restaurants and had invited out of town friends to join us but we all left extremely underwhelmed and will not be back.
Have walked by many times so for my anniversary I thought we would give it a try. The positives were a nice ambiance and we had a superb Sicilian red . We were give one finger slice of bread. I believe a bread basket would have given us a better impression. We ordered two entrees, zucchini flowers, one little flower each without the baby zucchini attached and a spiral potato thing. Both uninspiring and tiny serves. My main was a beetroot . radicchio risotto. Really basic with not much flavour and small serve. We had an entree of soft cheese, edamame and figs which was ok. My husband had the duck which was actually quite nice. I have worked in catering so I understand the challenges of running a restaurant but the lack of quantity and flavour will not have me rushing back. We had to get a kebab afterwards because we left hungry. For a $100 a head I was disappointed.
