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.

A family run business offering good service in a basic and relaxed environment. Choose from a great range of pizza and pasta dishes or something more specific like steak or seafood. All selections are tasty and come in good sized portions. You won't leave hungry. A good selection of drinks on offer as well, alcoholic beverages or non-alcoholic. Good for... More

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!

If you are hungry and manage your expectations, this place will be OK. Plenty of food is served, but at least for the dishes we had, the taste was pretty standard.

Hi there, I believe you were in Tuesday night. Unusual you say that as most people love our food and find it very tasty.

We were staying nearby and decided to have dinner here. The wait staff were friendly and efficient, the food didn't take too long to come out and each of the three mains our group ordered were particularly flavoursome and authentic. We finished off with a generous serving of gelato. All in all a really enjoyable dining experience
