A creative, well balanced menu with really incredible food that is beautifully presented. Every dish was well thought out and enhanced the flavour of the hero ingredient while pairing it with some lovely quirky side ingredients. But the food is not tricky, it's thoughtful and exciting. The wines we were recommended were excellent as well - and the modern take... More

This place has received some excellent reviews. The ambience is beautiful and thestaff are lovely. They have some nice wines on offer especially if you are in the mood for a bottle. Else the menabrea is always a marvel. We had the 7 course degustation - the courses were good and sumptuous. But no wow factor ? Or was it... More

A mate took me here for my birthday a few months back, and really enjoyed myself. The food is exciting and thoughtful; the service is warm and attentive without being too in-your-face; the room itself, located on a busy thoroughfare, still feels very much like the interior of a small-town trattoria. This being Sydney, it is slightly more expensive than... More

Came here for a friend's birthday and would not step foot in the place again. We had the set menu of 6 courses. The first was an octopus terrine - it wasn't amazing but it was ok. We then had tuna which was overlooked and pretty tasteless. Our pastas were a red sauce risotto (undercooked rice and too many clashing... More

Visited as two couples and all present were blown away by the quality of the food here, combined with excellent service. 7 courses for $75, each one standing out in their own right, is unheard of in Sydney! The food is Italian obviously but not your standard pizza and pasta fare. Highlight dishes were the zucchini flowers, roast capsicum risotto... More

Suburban restaurant on busy Enmore Road. A hidden gem in plain sight. We wandered in here on a Tuesday without a reservation to find the place very busy with people already set up at the bar. Rather than turn us away the host graciously suggested we (our group of 4) could dine upstairs in the other dining room which they... More

Went as a couple, as we hadn't been for a while, since the upstairs was added. Definitely, good service & a great dry martini. We both found the food to be very rich & difficult to finish. A pity , but it might be just us.

It's not often that you have an evening where a superb meal is matched by highly professional service. Often one is handicapped by the other. Osteria Russo and Russo has the perfect match. An intelligent menu is matched by quality ingredients authentically and skilfully prepared. Our waiter was both well informed and passionate about the food and wine. The experience... More

Review covers 3 visits from June to Dec 2016, a group of 10, my wife and I, and a group of 24. It's a wonderful restaurant with a great vibe, excellent staff and delicious, thoughtful food. You can;t please everyone all the time, but from the 20 different dishes I've had so far, only 2 were less than excellent and... More

Have spent some time in Tuscany and this is as good as anything we had there. Went with my wife and had the 5 course set menu.Friendly knowledgeable staff (our waiter was from Tuscany), pleasant surroundings - not too loud so you can talk. The food was brilliant and very interesting. Every course was a surprise with the highlight the... More
