Osteria di Russo & Russo
We love this place - and go there quite regularly for the Vebene and the Ultra Bene it is such a worthwhile night. Beautiful ambience, great food and wonderful staff. They have been stellar since the first time we have gone there on our first anniversary.... 5 years on we still go back every year and for other special occasions. Thank you for making his birthday memorable ad with all the little surprises from you and the staff.
Beautifully presented restaurant and great wait staff and service!
Food was nice. A little bit on the higher price mark however the experience was lovely and nice to try something different. Flank steak was a little on the tough side
Great restaurant. Food was amazing. tasting menu provided us a great sample of the dishes. Service was wonderful, staff were super friendly and helpful. Great experience all round.
Brilliant as always.
Delicious food, great wait staff, really good cocktails.
We've eaten at Osteria many times and it never fails to impress. Food is always innovative and unique with attentive but not cloying service. Excellent value for money - you could pay twice as much as some other 'hatted' establishments. Our guests from interstate are invariably surprised to find such a high quality restaurant at such reasonable prices in Sydney.
In our 25 years in the inner west this remains our favourite small group (4 or less) restaurant. It's also become our go to place for celebrating our family's true great moments. Thank you for always delivering on service, quality, and surprises!
Terrific food, great environment, and top service from people who help make for a wholly enjoyable dining experience.
The gnocchi was delicious and great wine choices. Unfortunately the rest of the food wasn't as good as the gnocchi. Great ambience and quiet enough that you can have a conversation.
Romantic atmosphere - good for a date.
Food is outstanding!
Top dishes are the Fried Zucchini Flower, Goats Milk Ricotta, with Lemon Aspen & Chilli Salt and the Saltbush Gnocchi, Pork Sausage Ragu, with Porcini, Juncu Pecorino & Sage.
Can't recommend this restaurant enough. I have been coming here regularly for 4 years since I first moved to Newtown and I have never come away not thoroughly enjoying my meal, as well as being blown away by at least one if not several dishes on the degustation. Mark and his staff are incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable, it's a wonderful occasion to be able to eat at their table.
We decided to do the 4 course share plate dinner based on the waitress's suggestion & she was spot on! The flavours of each dish were amazing & the mulberry cocktails were great too.
Great food and great atmosphere, I will definitely be back with friends and family to enjoy Osteria di Russo & Russo again,
I wish it didn’t take us so long to get there! The food was amazing! The service was lovely. Can not wait to go back!
A special little gem. Perfect for adventurous eaters looking for something with some sparkle
The ambience and atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the marble tables and dark wooden aesthetic coupled with the melted candle-waxed bottles and iconic Italian photographs and imagery on the wall makes it feel like I'm sitting in a hip version of my nonna's dining room.
Signore Russo himself came to the table regularly to check that everything was tutto posto and even threw him some home-made liqueur to sample with dessert. Delicious combination of traditional Italian recipes with some native Australian ingredients. I've been here twice and will return regularly with friends.
First time dining at R&R after hearing wonderful things. It was a true pleasure, everything I’d heard and more. A wonderful familiar feeling of comfort and excitiment as if I were sitting just off the streets of Italy.
One of my favourite neighbourhood restaurants in Sydney. Consistently good!
Had the 7 course menu between 3 people. Amazing food, every dish was on point aside from the dessert (coconut pannacotta - the honeydew granita was more bitter than expected and tasted more like celery).
Beautiful, homey interior and ambience. The staff were lovely and attentive. Overall, a wonderful dining experience and I will be back!
I took my wife to Russo and Russo to celebrate her birthday and I couldn’t have asked for anything better! The food was exquisite, the wine was delicious but it was the care and attention from the staff that made the evening so special. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone looking for an authentic, laid back Italian dinner and a memorable night out.
Fantastic food, feeling and service.
Old school feel with new-ish school food.
We'll be back, maybe to a Sunday regional or special dinner night!
As usual, fabulous service, fabulous, fresh seasonal food.
We always love going to Russo & Russo. It feels like going to a family friend's for dinner. Discrete service but also so friendly. Great food, we loved the octopus, and the squid ink and crab pasta especially. Great local, good for any occasion or just because you want a great meal.
Staff were attentive and very nice. Excellent food, love the menu. Will need to go back to try the other dishes =)
We loved it, especially as mine host made us feel part of the family.
Outstanding food at Russo! Loved the mains and home made sodas. Service good pace and friendly.
The food was great the service friendly . Super flavoursome.
Lovely food. Loved the va bene option. Service was excellent. Ambience was wonderful.
If you haven’t tried this gem of a restaurant then you are missing out on consistently great service, wine and amazing food. It’s my favourite go to restaurant.
Delicious food, fantastic service and I'll definitely be back
Welcomed and seated, imaginative twists on known dishes all shareable with my partner. Fine wine and a tiny wee cake for here birthday.
Highly recommend... brilliant food and wine list by the glass and the bottle.
Always great food and service. Have been going to Russo and Russo for years - definitely a Newtown local.
Have not been here since this placed opened a few years back. Revisited again the other night and had a beautiful meal with great service.
Fantastic and exciting Italian food. An early booking is quieter but really loud when the night is in full swing
great experience and very accommodating , my friends had a great birthday dinner and definitely worth visit again
Great location and food was amazing . Thank you
Highly recommended it
What a gorgeous neighbourhood gem. Pino was an absolute charmer, the service was warm and knowledgable, the setting is so beautiful and the food was absolutely yummy. We will be making this place a regular haunt!!
The presentation was great and I guess the food was good. I am not much of a judge because I am not used to up market food. We were told that the dishes were designed to be shared so ordered 1 dish between two. This was a mistake as the servings were too small for that. We won't be going back in a hurry. The deserts were good. We ordered one each of those.
I love coming to this place. The food is delicious, authentic Italian food. The service is impeccable and friendly and the wine pairing was perfect. Would definitely recommend this as a good night out
