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.

the food was great, but I did not appreciate being told there was a time limit on the table. I understand restauranteurs want to make a success of their business - but a customer is a customer.

Being Valentine’s Day seemed to be very rushed and not a great deal of care taken, in saying that everyone was very polite

Online Booking service was very easy to use even when I had to adjust our time. Food was excellent and service very good. I had to page a waitress to order as no one had come back for a while but overall, great restaurant!

We ended up sitting a window seat which added a bit of interest.
Everything from service to the food was very good and we would definitely return a later date.
Would highly recommend this Italian restaurant.

Food was at its normal best but service level on delivery of Mains and Drinks not up to previous standards and paid an extra 10% for the privilege.

Food was amazing, however the service was very poor. It took 30 minutes after sitting down before we were offered some water/the chance to order and then the food and drinks (including starters) awkwardly came out at the same time. We were never offered coffee or dessert at the end (we had the intention of ordering this) and our plates were never cleared so we left to pay at the front. Seems they are going a bit cheap on the number of staff required for a full restaurant which is a shame when their food is very good.

The food was amazing, tried 3 entrees and 2 mains and everything was very tasty. My gnocchi was delicious and I loved the calamari, saganaki and meatball for entree. Only shame was I didn’t have time to try dessert as I had to get to a show. Will definitely be back.
Staff were efficient and friendly.

We found both the service and food to be very good, however, the wine was very ordinary (Heatcote Shiraz) for the cost involved. ($53). It was little better than cask wine.
Advice to Rococo, reduce your 300% mark up on your wines and increase the quality.

Very friendly and attentive staff that ensured we were served promptly as we had a show to go to. Food was great and fresh, really enjoyed the garlic pizza. They were very accommodating in ensuring there was no dairy in the risotto and nothing was too much trouble. The only small negative would be that tables are close together, with some only separated by a mesh type partition so conversations can be heard even if you talk quietly. We had friendly people next to us that did join in on some of our conversation, so was okay on this occasion. Overall, a great experience and will definitely return.

Table a little small for 3 people as you need more room for the food and drinks.

Food was amazing; perfect pasta texture, fresh produce in the sauces but service was really disappointing. While everyone of the waitstaff was friendly, efficiency was not their strong point. I waited for 15 minutes before someone came for my drinks order (but water didn't make it to the table until the mains were served) while I watched staff serving all the tables around me as though I were invisible. It also seemed that there simply weren't enough staff on the floor for the size and busy-ness of the restaurant.
