Rococo Acland Street’s atmosphere is both seductive and vibrant, bustling and intimate. The place where Rococo’s signature antipasti boards and simple Italian flavours first came to be, it continues to attract diners from all over Melbourne some 10 years later. Set amongst some of Melbourne’s most loved sites – The Palais, The National Theatre and St Kilda beach to name a few – our expanded restaurant space is bigger than ever, yet remains cosy and flexible, with various spaces available for functions and plenty of nooks for private dining or close conversations.
Join us for a meal of many courses; a hearty breakfast to start the day, a jovial work lunch, a family get together or just a glass of wine to celebrate the end of a day. Oh and our Wood Fire Pizzas are a must. Enjoy the authenticity, quality and warm hospitality of modern Italy right here in Melbourne.
Al fresco outside seating also available.

Fantastic cafe/restaurant. Stunning food and so much variety. Really lovely decor and we got a nice private table away from the hustle and bustle of everyone which was so nice. Highly recommend.

Amazing food and atmosphere. A must visit if you are in St Kilda. I've been going to this restaurant for nearly 10 years after an accidental find on a trip over from Perth. Still my absolute favourite. Amazing food!

I really love Rococo food it is fantastic but I was really disappointed that we had to wait over 1 hour for 3 pasta dishes. I only asked where our meals were because we had to be at a show and people who arrive after we ordered were getting their food.

I think surcharging customers on a Sunday is disgraceful. It’s 2019, yes penalty rates for working the weekend apply but it’s disgusting that your customers are forking that bill.

We recently dined here for dinner on Mother’s Day. We waited at the front desk for quite a while with wait staff passing us but no-one acknowledging us. Finally we were greeted and taking to our table. We sat for at least 15 or so minutes and no one came to take drink orders. We had to wave down a staff member and order drinks and ask for water. We weren’t off to a great start. We ordered our meals which were the ricotta gnocchi, the mushroom gnocchi, the pan fried prawns with linguine and a kids gnocchi bolognaise along with the Italian coleslaw. The pastas were tasty and the salad was very nice. Cocktails were good also.

I’ve eaten at Rococco over many years but today’s experience might just put me off from going again. My first mother’s day as a mum of an 11-month old, I made a booking for 12pm and was told we had an allocation of 2 hours. At 1.05pm, while we were waiting for our coffees to arrive to end our meal, one of the head waitresses arrives to say that the people with the following booking were arriving soon! Sorry? We just finished our meals, were waiting for our coffees and get told this! Shame job Rococco! Shame! The waitress apologised but damage done. Get your booking system straight and treat your clientele, especially on Mother’s Day, with some common decency!

Pasta was nice. Pizza was bland and dessert had big ice chunks in ice cream. Also the menu description was very different to what we recieved. Very noisy restaurant. Great service but food overall needs improvement.

Rococo has always been a great experience except the last time. Our mains came out while we were still eating our entrees. Meals went back to the kitchen only to be brought out 5mins after clearing our table. Not impressed

No need for restaurants in 2019 not to be accepting split bill payments. EFT terminals pretty much do it for them, and not allowing it just annoys patrons. We were not impressed when the six of us were not able to use three credit cards...none of us had cash (and who does these days)...which meant one person had to load their card and we had to transfer funds later.

It's a proven and reliable place for a high quality meal. Food is very authentic, in particular the Brodo was spot on. On-line booking was straight forward and easy.
