Osteria di Russo and Russo has been selected as one of the hottest 50 restaurants in Australia, and have had the pleasure of receiving some exciting reviews.

Jason Saxby, in his first head chef gig, has reached a delightful accord with boss and front-of-house master Marc Russo: make it Italian, but not; make it unpredictable; make it modern…It’s been called a neighbourhood restaurant. I disagree. The mood is right, the pitch perfect and the chef on some kind of trajectory. Right now could be one of those “remember when he was in Enmore” moments. Go hungry.”

John Lethlean, The Australian

“Russo & Russo does a fine job of channelling the spirit of osterias past, with a welcoming host, a chef who does things from scratch, and a good-value dining experience that is personal and intimate.”

Terry Durack, SMH

“When it’s good, it’s very good, and that’s a big win for the neighbourhood.”

Pat Nourse, Gourmet Traveller

“But here’s what it is: the best Italian-inspired food the neighbourhood has to offer, where the music’s on vinyl and the crowd is loud and local. It’s a good time.”
