Enmore's Osteria di Russo & Russo is a favorite among locals and visitors alike for its fresh and vibrant take on contemporary Italian cuisine, served in its warm and charming restaurant. For starters, the fiore di zucchini fried zucchini flower with goat's milk ricotta and chili salt and the parfaiterole alla Veneziana duck liver parfait with an onion and marsala sauce and choux bun are sensational selections.

Some of Osteria di Russo & Russo's specialty dishes include the maiale al latte pork neck cooked in milk with confit fennel, pickled radicchio, pear and walnuts, the chargrilled manzo beef rump cap with anchovy sauce and the pesce chargrilled catch-of-the-day served with cannellini puree, coastal greens and lemon myrtle, as well as vegetarian dishes.

Osteria di Russo & Russo's mora blackberry and crème fraiche panna cotta is the perfect dessert with which to finish your meal.

Osteria was fantastic. I booked a table for my wifes birthday and was very happy with their service. Gentleman serving us (we think maybe the owner or at least a manager) was so helpful and lovely. The food was extraordinary, 5 courses was more than enough (and I eat a LOT). They have a fantastic selection of wines, and they know their stuff even if you don't - perfect reccomendations for the night! They oysters are an absolute MUST try

We really enjoyed the experience and will be back! We were well attended by the staff. The food was really tasty and servings generous enough for two. Perhaps have the details, of each dish in the tasting menu, in print. We found it difficult to hear the waitresses as they explained each dish. Additionally, a selection of less expensive wines would appeal.

Not our first time here and we love it. The themed dinner - Italian Christmas - was pretty tasty. We would have liked earlier portions a little larger (because delicious!) and warmer and the dessert smaller but that's a matter of taste and style I guess. Not much in the way of green-ness so very protein heavy. Anyway, rockin' flavours, very creative and brilliantly paired wines.

Had an enjoyable meal with friends. Food was a modern Australian twist on classic Italian. Great atmosphere and warm welcome.

My partner and I are massive foodies. We have been dining here at least twice a year since 2014 and have never been disappointed. They have consistency down pack.
We are always confident to bring family and friends.
The menu is always changing depending on season but there are some beautiful dishes which are simply too good to take off the menu.
Service is really good. Whether it be the son/owner Mark or his father. All the staff are lovely and have a level of professionalism that is still on a level of chilled and not too over the top.
Highly recommended for beautiful modern Italian food and impeccable friendly service!

Our waiter was fabulous, food was delicious. Thought the religious decor was odd.

The starters and entrees were fabulous; the mains (we ordered a chicken dish and a tri-tip) were both too salty and underwhelming. The service was fine, though the room was a bit noisy.
