Ronnie’s menu is tasty, light, easy-to-share New York-Italian inspired food.

Much of the menu is based around the concept of cicchetti (Italian tapas) dishes like our fermented potato focaccia, buffalo mozzarella + lemon, and cacio e pepe inspired waffles.

If you’re still hungry, go ahead and dig into our small selection of handmade pastas or treat yourself to something delicious from our open grill.

    We had a wonderful evening. Everything was fantastic from the moment we arrived. The watermelon martini cocktail was perfect to start. We had the feed me menu and were not dissapointed with a single item. Eddy took the time to discuss wine pairing and both the red and white were perfect accompanying beverages. The kitchen and wait staff make you feel so welcome.

    Drinks service a mess with wine arriving after entree despite early order and after bringing wrong bottle. No wine knowledge by servers. Food over salted for three of us. No bread apart from in-house focaccia which was average at best. Not authentic Italian by any stretch. Looks like still ramping up after Covid with very junior staff. Sorry won’t be recommending.

    Delicious food, but lack of wait staff/training made our experience a bit disappointing. Food came out at 45 minute bursts, and it was excruciatingly difficult to get someone’s attention to check in on how things were coming along. I understand that being short staffed can make things come out a bit slower, but we would have appreciated this being communicated to us, and would have been more than happy to order more drinks from the bar while we waited for the food.

    12 of us visited Ronnie’s for my birthday. Drinks were amazing, all cocktails were well made, great quality. Staff were very attentive, no glass was left empty for long, we even got complimentary tequila at the end. The food was great apart from the Wagyu Tri-Tip which was quite tough. But overall a lovely experience, will definitely be back.

    I don’t usually leave bad reviews but this place is extremely over rated and hyped up on social media Terrible service not enough staff on floor to cover the basics of water and drinks Only nice thing was the focaccia and the figs, strozzapreti was undercooked not enjoyable Waygu was burnt on the outside and extremely rare in the middle salmon was also disappointing Overall was a disappointing experience which is unfortunate as I’ve had my eye on this place for a while

    Very warm and inviting manager but food is nothing to write home about. The menu and food seemed a bit all over the place - not exactly sure what the theme is meant to be or what they’re going for. Sweet potato focaccia was yummy. Mozarella appetiser was served with a lemon curd that was overpowering and sweet. Asparagus served cold with too much sweet balsamic glaze and random edible flowers. Rigatoni was undercooked. Just my 2c but feel that it would be better if they just kept things simple, taste test all their dishes and focus on flavour.

    While the food was nice, our waiter (who I believe to be the manager) was very overzealous in his behaviour. At first he seemed like he was just trying to be friendly, but his efforts to continuously insert himself in my family’s private dinner conversation, and overly familiar nature felt uncomfortable. He continuously touched his hands on us, and spoke closely to everyone with his mask around the chin, and acted as if he had a few drinks before the night started. By the end of the night, he called me ‘babe’ while I was paying, which felt far too familiar and unwelcome. It is completely understandable that restaurants are understaffed at the moment, however the 2 hour wait for the food would have been more bearable with a more polite waiter.

    Ronnie'sResponded on 17 January 2022

    Hi Natassia, thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear about your experience. Our team endeavour to make all our guests feel welcome and comfortable, and ensure they leave feeling like family. We acknowledge that this is not what happened to you and sincerely apologise for the discomfort that was caused.

    Ronnie’s really delivered and more. A bit out of the way in Collins street, this eatery deserves more attention from the weekend punters. Delicious food and great attentive service. Our steak was cooked to perfection, pasta on point and scrummy sides. A highlight was the consistency of quality cocktails delivered from the bar, great stuff. I recommend trying a dirty martini.

    Quiet on a tuesday night, but efficient service was available. Food arrived in a timely manner, was tasty and vibrant. Ordered the potato focaccia - which is a must! arancini, which was really good. The shell was quite tough but the rice was cooked well with pesto inside. Both pastas were great and we got a salad too. That was enough to share between 2 people as we were full after as we walked around the city. Drinks were made fast too, and strong. Thanks for a great night

    The focaccia and buffalo mozzarella are good appetiser combo, the 2 waffles and the chicken wings are must have. The crab pasta was a bit bland, the wagyu meatball pasta was excellent but the portion was a bit small.

My table of 8 were not rushed at all and had a great table in the centre of the beautiful restaurant all to ourselves the whole night. Ronnie's also surprised me with a birthday candle in my tart - thank you so much for an incredible first night out back in the city! We will all definitely be back :)
