Italian
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 Vitello Tonnato toastie, salumi, mozarella or ricotta with lemon myrtle, and our rye focaccia with fermented potato.

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.

Focaccia and Steak was great,

Ordered the strozzapreti pasta and it was disgusting, we couldn’t even eat it, looked incredibly unappetising it was over cooked kale and maybe spinach that had gone brown and clumpy had no other flavour just aside from greens, the smell was so overpowering that we couldn’t wait for the waitress to remove it because it was putting us off our steak.

Chocolate torte was delicious but overall very disappointed with this pasta

I came here for a celebratory lunch and we were seated right in front of the kitchen, which was great! We ordered bread and olives for an entrée, followed by a seafood pasta and salmon as a main. The entree was lovely, albeit very small. The mains were tasty, however quite rich and oily. The food is costly, as to be expected due to its location but not worth the food on offer as it was quite basic in presentation.

When I booked for 6.30pm I was not told that I had to be out by 8pm.
When I sat down at the restaurant, I was not told the sitting was only to 8pm.
At 7.15pm the waiter advised me that I had ti he out by 8pm. Everything was rushed from then on to such an extent that the waiter asked if she could clear the table when we were still eating. It was a very poor experience from 7.15pm onwards.

Arrived late due to trouble finding a car park and some difficulty finding the restaurant, but we were greeted straight away and seated at a table for four with an excellent view of the kitchen and restaurant. Service was outstanding and food equally delicious. Great concept, share plates ensuring a wide tasting of food on offer! Bright, welcoming decor, definitely revisit!

The staff a) forgot our order and b) brought a meat dish when vegetarian was specified. When the vego option did arrive, it was basically the same dish minus the meat, but no price difference.

There was no dimming of lights to create an atmosphere, and the noise levels were distracting.

We did get a voucher in acknowledgement of their stuff up, but i won't be headed in a hurry to use it.

Good food but let down by very poor slow service and staff didn’t know the menu as far to items were not available and the ambiance didn’t feel as though we were anywhere near a New York Italian diner.

Good and service. My only word of warning is that the Pork Milanese is huge - think thickly cut, bone in, size of the plate. Easily shared between diners.

Mafaldine Mussel pasta was delicious, spaghetti was packed full of flavour but borderline too salty. Wagyu is average don’t get it. Potato waffle was tasty. Salmon was tasty but not our favourite

Service was great, venue is nice but ambience is lacking, sitting very close to other diners, food was just flat out not good. Too salty. Not flavoursome. Very disappointed.

Understand it was busy on Sat night and we had to leave at 7:45 due to the 2 hours limitation. Not a good dining experience cos we just finished our main and I didn’t finish my wine and we got asked 3 times to leave. My friends also comments on the interior decos like a cafeteria. $30 for a cauliflower steak is pricy. For the price tbh don’t think the dining experience was worth of it.

Had a wonderful dinner for two at Ronnies. The atmosphere strikes the perfect balance between sophisticated & fun. The wait staff were all lovely - very relaxed & friendly & knowledgeable. We shared 5 of the Italian style tapas (Cicchetti) & 2 salads & it was plenty of food, & extremely good value. Every dish was delicious. The standouts for us were the sardines on toast, the potato waffle & the green beans & caviar, but it was all sensational. I also have to mention the awesome playlist. It is so nice to dine on fine food without the standard background of pretentious boring music. The tunes were upbeat & joyous - Jamiroqui's Canned Heat was playing when we walked in for instance. Will be recommending Ronnies to everyone!

Ronnies was great, friendly service, enjoyed most of the food, found the focaccia, lamb ribs and chips to be all too salty. We will be back soon
