    Had an amazing time here for my birthday. Lovely decor and atmosphere, I’ve forgotten the name however the lady with the short hair was so lovely and vigilant! We just ordered the set menu and was reasonably priced and portions were decent sized as well, went home very full and happy, and will definitely go back at some time in the future!

    I'm posting exactly what I wrote to the owner, cannot rave about this place enough! Turbo Studio 10:20 (4 hours ago) to Reservations Dear Marco, The stars aligned to finally allow us to dine at Osteria Russo & Russo last night. Wow! I can say with all sincerity, it has been a long time since food and service has left me so speechless. It was without doubt, the finest experience I have had in quite some time. My guests at dinner were in total agreement with me and this was demonstrated by the lack of conversation when food was on the table, we savoured every moment and every flavour. I asked to meet your Chef and Roberto kindly took me to the kitchen and introduced me to Robin (apologies if I have misspelled his name) who was just so humble in accepting my expressions of gratitude and might I even say awe at his talent. In fact I think I probably embarrassed him but my admiration is truly sincere. Roberto was impeccable in his service along with his colleague (though I neglected to ask her name). I am sitting here reliving the night, every aspect was outstanding. Would you please pass on our thanks again to your team for what was an incredible treat of a night. You clearly set and maintain a high standard for your business and it serves you well. I hope to meet you next time we eat at your establishment. Congratulations!

    Overall experience just perfect! I would give more stars if available. It was our first time in this restaurant even though we live very close by. My partner had his birthday which I mentioned at the time of booking. Staff made us/my partner feel very special and over were very lovely. Food was absolutely beautiful, same as drinks and the feel of the restaurant very welcoming and cozy. We'll be definitely back!

    This was a mid-week birthday celebration meal for our family and it was magic from beginning to end. We took the set menu and everything was beautiful and well balanced. The zucchini flowers with home made ricotta and the pork in a mandarin sauce were highlights. Perfect cosy venue on a cold winter night. Be sure to book in advance.

    A little piece of Italy in the midst of Enmore. Food and cocktails were delicious. Warm, Italian hospitality with quick service if required to ensure you can make your show at the Enmore without ever feeling rushed. We went back for dessert after the show and the Semifreddo was outstanding.

    This was our second time to Russo & Russo and unfortunately this time quite disappointing. The zucchini flowers were cold and fatty, like they had just come out of a refrigerator. The special of spaghetti carbonara with truffle was tasteless and not worth the $45 price tag. Service on the other hand was great. Not sure we'll be back again.

    It's that go to special night out. It's that experience, not just a meal. It's where the food is a long-deliberated, carefully crafted, adventurous flavour sensation. It's where the service makes you feel warm and welcome - but not just because it's excellent, it's authentic and relaxed. It's that whole package. Go here. Go here. Go here.
