Rococo is a personal favourite of ours in the local area. The well priced meals and customer service have been excellent each time. The home-made ricotta gnocchi is always a hit and highly recommended. A top experience all round.

This place is always busy; it's super popular with the locals and great for special occasions or even just a nice dinner. They do fantastic Italian; pizza, pasta, antipasto, desserts. It's all good here. They have lots of seating and a great atmosphere

Ordered the Tasmanian salmon 'fillet' and got served the smallest piece of salmon I've ever seen (not even half a normal fillet) for $35!!!!!! . Took 5 minutes to eat it and, honestly, 50 minutes to wait for it. Doesn't make sense. Not going again

Light, bright, simple, casual – this is our approach to both the food, and the space at our Glenferrie Road venue. Floor-to-ceiling windows and alfresco tables allow you to watch the world go by as you sample the finest Italian produce on a pizza, in a pasta or as part of our specialty antipasti boards.The extensive wine list features some Italian varietals, and our refreshing aperitivos are a popular choice when the sun is shining. Here at Rococo Glenferrie Road, the honesty and simplicity of Italian food, wine and hospitality comes alive. Our kitchen is open all day, from breakfast through dinner, and we’d love to welcome you at any time.
