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.

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.

I had gluten free pasta and it was reasonable given that I am fructose intolerant and I am limited in what I can eat. My husband and the other two people had the potato pizza and they liked it very much. The waiters were outstanding. There was a mixed up in the kitchen and they served me non-gluten free pasta. Luckily I realised about it after the first bite. They apologised profusely

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.

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.
