Cafe Rosco is a family owned and operated restaurant. We have been servicing the lunching, dining, takeaway and delivery needs of St Kilda Rd, South Yarra and surrounding areas for over 20 years now. 

You will find there is generally always a family member managing, to ensure you get the personalised serviced you have come to love and expect. The "Rosco's experience" that leaves you feeling like you're at home with friends and family. We are known by our clients as a" St Kilda Rd institution" and "The Go to Local Pizza House". Our clients include offices, residents and hotel visitors in the South Yarra, St Kilda Rd and South Melbourne area. We are located near the Royce Hotel, Blackman, Bayview Eden On The Park, Albert Park Manor, Seasons Botanical and Hotel Charsfield. They are a short walk away. So if you are visiting one of the hotels feel free to drop in. We also regularly accommodate for Melbourne Grammar students and parents and of course country folk visiting. We cater for groups of up to 30 people and even have the availability for pre-ordering your food to either start cooking on your arrival or to be on the table at your required time. This is a service we have been offering for many years - a service which is designed to meet the demanding needs of the modern day business person. We are also specialists in catering - so if you are having a corporate function we offer a premium service of takeaway meals and pizzas. We deliver both lunch time and dinner. We label all food if required and even cut the pizzas into squares for your convenience. Cafe Rosco: It will be an experience that will have you coming back again and again - as demonstrated by many of our clients.

Reviews well deserved

Friendly and efficient yet not pushy service. Had the steak with house gravy which was tasty & tender. Their recommended wine also smooth and full bodied as promised. So all in all very enjoyable.

Being a ten year resident of Melbourne city, having eaten nearly everywhere possible AND out of all the restaurants to look into to hold a huge surprise birthday dinner for my best friend's young 40th, I decided on Café Roscos on St Kilda Road in Melbourne.

We had dinner here on 2 nights of our stay, the staff were friendly, the food was really good. The portion sizes were generous, an entree size pasta was more than ample for 1 person. They were really great value for money.

Cafe Rosco had some really great Italian food. We ordered a spicy salami and a meat lover's pizza, lasagna, smoked salmon penne and a greek salad. All the dishes were yummy although I would have preferred a slightly crisper pizza base. Really friendly and efficient staff. A great experience!
