Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On the first visit last weekend, we tried a selection of entrees, the meatballs being the pick of the bunch,(Momma-Mia...lush Italian flavours!) The salad with pear was a refreshing mix of flavours, simple but beautiful...Our hostess "Cimi" (could be spelt wrong), was absolutely superb! She recommended some delightful dishes to us, and her experience and bright personality oozes out creating a warm and friendly atmosphere in the restaurant. We dined on Sunday night there too, and a big heads up, if you don't try the Mushroom Gnocchi, you are existing, not living!. Lightly creamed, with the rich earthy flavour of the shrooms. Credit to the chef and his team for a fantastic dish. Unfortunately we were too full to try dessert. But the lemoncello is icy cold and good to go. I would definitely eat there again, the menu is huge BTW. Best wishes to Rococo M & J

This place is always popular so we stopped in for a bite for eat. The staff were good at their jobs and were attentive. The meals are not cheap but are tasty. The kids all had pizzas which they enjoyed. Sitting outside at night is crowded but inside is nice. If you ask for water, it will be bottled and you have to pay for it, but you can also get tap water.

Excellent Food and Fantastic Service. As 3 Diners on a Friday night we were very surprised with the prompt speedy but certainly never felt rushed. We each had an entree, main and dessert and impressed with every dish. Drink pricing was quite reasonable as an added bonus! Have to rate Rococo 5 stars - Simply Brilliant.

Always love the food and this has been our go to place when in StK. But the wait staff were asleep at the wheel. A real shame as it doesn’t take much to serve a table - drink order delivered (failed twice), serviettes and cutlery to table on order (only when we had our food in front of us wondering how we’d eat it did these get delivered) and food you order coming to your table (nope - the waiters could not even locate us). More training or replace with staff that can do the basics of waiting on tables. The would help this restaurant retain its loyal customers.

We always make Rococo our meeting point for breakfast when the family are in town. The large spacious dining area with a pleasant decor always makes for a great dining experience. The menu pretty much covers all tastes and comes with a large portion, the Chilli eggs while nice could have been a little spicier whereas the chilli omelette was perfect! The Bircher Muesli was a light refreshing tasty start for the day. When busy there is a bit of a wait but well worth it. Definitely recommend a visit!

Thank you for your review Wayne. Apologies for the wait with the meals, the wait can creep up a little during peak service on the busy weekends but we are very glad to hear it was worth it. We Hope to see you back for breakfast soon!

The wine was TRIPLE the retail, the dishes were small and not as good as home cooked $325 for three very average lunches, with wine. Good service and took money with a smile. I would NEVER go again

If you want Italian food, that’s not just a big bowl of boring pasta or a basic pizza, this is your place. I have been coming here for years, and the food quality is consistently great. There are varieties of delicious pastas and pizzas plus a whole lot of share plates and mains to try. The handmade seafood pasta (pictured) is a must try if you enjoy seafood. Staff and service is always friendly and prompt. And prices are reasonable.

Good service. Fast food. Terrible quality. Came by for lunch, the bolognese arancini was cold in the middle and bland. The saving grace is that it came out 1-2 mins after we ordered it. Had lasagna and seafood spaghetti for mains. I can't decide which is worse. The lasagna had been microwaved and was covered in so much sauce and cheese but still so dry with little to no fillings inside. Spaghetti had a great combination of seafood. Unfortunately, some were overcooked and rubbery. And the sauce was bland and unappealing.

Having chosen this restaurant based on the photos online, it would be safe to say my hopes were high. I was not disappointed. Each dish was stunning, both in presentation and taste, and the service was awesome. They were aware of our time constraints (heading to a show after dinner) and it was no trouble to cater to this. Loved it. Thanks Rococo!

Very great experience. Was very filling food and of brilliant quality, restaurant was close to full capacity and they still managed to cater for everyone, even checking if we needed to be somewhere like a show. Not too bad wait times, would’ve been even faster if not a Friday night with a comedy show just down the street, great service and good quality food. Would go again.

Not the first or the second time here. In fact, we've been here many times over the last few years, usually celebrating a special occasion or taking customers out. The last time, last Friday, was special as it was the first night our since COVID19 started in Mar. We celebrated my significant other birthday and what a great dinner it was. The team was responsive and helpful and the food was top notch. My son is Vegana and they now have a Vegan menu! We had many dishes and the standouts were the grilled calamari, the prawn linguini, the vegi lasagna and the vegan pizzas. Very nice evening in the perfect spot.

Very bad experience, the waitress spilt a whole glass of red wine all over my daughters white t shirt our food and her partners jumper. They offered no compensation what so ever or even a discount on the food they ruined that we could not eat, they asked us if we wanted another pizza to which we said no and then they bought out anyway. Completely ruined our lunch, very disappointing experience which has ended up costing us approximately $150 in ruined clothing.

Ever since the last time we visited this awesomeness, it has become our favorite among many on Acland Street. They have managed their standards and quality which is quite rare. Their Chargrilled Calamari is the Best so far we have eaten.in Melbourne. Succulent and flavorful. And their Pizzas are sooooooooo GGOOOOOODDDD. Also, their Red.Sangria is AMAZINGLY refreshing. 4/ 5 (A Year ago, around Easter) Glad we went here for the Sunday Brunch. Totally worth the value as portions are big and yummy. Rococo @ #StKilda also do awesome crispy and yummy #Fries. Coffee and Hot Chocolate were too good. Ordered a Chilly Omlette and Smoked Salmon with Potato Salad, Fries, Hot Chocolate and Piccolo. Chilly omlette and fries were our favorite. Almost all the tables had ordered fries and it's impossible to not order them. Second-best was smoked salmon. It was quite a task to finish the hot chocolate. Their menu boasts of plenty of options for Vegans and Vegetarians. Definitely recommended.

A late start to our day meant we were hungry before we even hit the beach so our first stop was lunch. Rococo's woodfired pizzas were yummy. Well cooked, not to cheesy and a good (not too thin) base. Prosciutto margherita, margherita and Calabrese were our choices and all were excellent. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Melbourne

Went with friends for a celebratory dinner. Loved the meal I had but the pizza my husband had wasn’t great - it was soft and a bit soggy instead of thin and crisp. Others loved their food. Pricey for what it was we thought,
