Very lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. The price is very reasonable and food is just amazing.
Little Shop which you could walk past and get unnoticed, but make sure you pay a visit one day it is a transitional Italian restaurant that we would highly recommend.

I've dined at Russo & Russo four or five times over the past couple of years, and it's a consistently excellent experience – the food is among the best in Sydney, the service is friendly and efficient, and the ambience is warm and cheerful. Overall, a great restaurant for a date or dinner with friends.

The restaurant is very nice. Upstairs gives a really nice dinning experience. The choice of wines are very impressive. What stands out is the food whilst the dishes are small the quality and flavors were excellent. A great find with very friendly staff the whole night was well worth the cost.

The food was beautiful. There was no pressure by staff to order any particular way. It was our first night out to a “proper” restaurant in a while and we were not disappointed. We were sad to have to leave so the next sitting could sit, although I understand that entirely.

The menu here is always varied and interesting, and never 'typically Italian'. But everything is delicious and we often just trust the degustation offerings.
OdR&R never fails to impress and caters for everyone from the adventurous to the conservative palate.
Easily our favourite inner west fine dining restaurant.

Food was good but not up to previous visits. We had a late booking so expecting a fairly quick meal but unfortunately two courses took close to 1.5 hours, service was polite and helpful but seemed unorganised as we had 4 different people serving us.

The food is always wonderful, and the service is classic old world professional Italian service. Its like being in a great family owned restaurant in Italy, but with more modern, creative food. A fantastic night out.

A refreshingly genuine experience - it’s clear the team take pride in the quality of their food and sourcing of raw ingredients. Knowledgeable, amiable staff. Warm, charming atmosphere. It’s hard to pick a favourite dish, they’re all memorable. Looking forward to working my way through the menu!

Beautiful setting, very friendly service, just a disappointed by the set menu and temperature of the food. The share element was not explained making the value very questionable.

My friend and i dined at Russo and Russo on a friends recommendation.
The food was excellent but the portions reminded one of the 70's and 80's nouvelle cuisine so hence not value for money.
