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 servers were nice and accomodating however I think that the kitchen either forgot about our order or made a mistake and had to remake it as it took over an hour after our starters, for our main to arrive. While they didn’t admit the kitchen made a mistake, the server did apologise for the delay a few times so something must have happened. When the steak arrived, it was undercooked but we weren’t prepared to bring it up after waiting for ages so just dealt with it and left. I think a busy night overwhelmed the kitchen and mistakes were made. Still like the restaurant and will probably return, just a shame that this visit had a few hiccups

Rococo is an amazing restaurant with delicious food! Have specifically changed my reservation from another restaurant to Rococo because I knew the quality and variety of food available was of high quality. The bookings coordinator Shannon was super helpful with the process. The only downside was when I ordered the buffalo mozzarella and I received a single piece- I thought it would be more like a caprese salad! It was still delicious but I would have loved more.

As always the food was delicious and we all ate too much!
We ordered one round of drinks, but once our food came no one came back to us to take another drink order.
It is so nice to see St Kilda back and busy, feel that staff need to readjust and get back there customer service.

Our waitress was very helpful and attentive. The premises were clean and and attractive. Covid safe procedures were in place. We had a light lunch of dips and bruschetta. Each serving was delicious. Wine by the bottle was expensive but there was a good price range. All in all was a very delightful experience. It was not our first time and we will come again.

As always, food was amazing! Huge selection of options from menu.
Staff were great, friendly and very attentive. Only negative would be the dessert... it came out cold and didn’t meet expectations however, we let the waiter know and he kindly apologised and took it off the bill! Will definitely be back.

Used Open Table to book for lunch. Would've liked to have lunch around 12.30 but earliest available was 2pm. When we arrived there was a line outside, I told a waitress that we had a booking but she said we had to wait in line. I asked others in line if they had a booking, they didn't. So I asked another waiter whether we had to wait in line seeing we had a booking, he said we did. I don't understand the point of booking if you still need to wait in line. Had I'd known, we would've come at 12.30 and just waited.
The food and service was excellent once we had been seated. Looking forward to going again. But they really need to prioritize and look after people who actually make an effort to book.

Waiter service was very good. Pasta was not al dente and calamari was overcooked therefore chewy pumpkin gnocchi was delicious.

Food and service were great. However, as we were 2 people sitting inside and next to the open window onto Acland Street, we found ourselves to be sitting next to the people waiting in line outside. All without a mask and less than 1mt apart, all evening! Not to mention the noise. Wouldn't do it again and I hope management rethink that table and not use it in the future, as it really affects customers experience.
