“Wonderful”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

What a great addition to the Enmore dining scene. And it's gone right to the top. We had the 7 course degustation. Fantastic. And it is the chef's choice. Although next time I will ask what it consists of, as none of our party of four could eat the tongue. I mean, we did. But we won't do it again. But that's not the chef's fault. Blame our parochial ways. And I could see that the staff were more than amenable to negotiate the dishes. Will definitely be back and really looking forward to it. Everything ticks the boxes. Incredible, inventive and delicious food. Great service, great wine, and great marble bar top service for walk in locals that was a constant conveyor belt. True testament to
great food. As I said, we'll be back.

“A great find”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We had a lovely evening at Russo & Russo last night. We tried the 7-course degustation menu with matching wines suggested by the sommelier Sarah. Everything was perfect and each course unique. Our friends had visited a few weeks earlier and were impressed that all but one course was different.

The vibe was also great. Good music and friendly attentive staff.

We highly recommend this place and will be back soon!

“Welcome addition to our local food scene”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Russo and Russo is a friendly, intimate and delicate dining experience on Enmore rd. We live around the corner and nothing is nicer than a gentle walk to and from a relaxed and unusual meal.We ordered the 4 course tasting menu which was thoughtful, different and economical: not too filling for a school night and not too frugal either. Yes there are some unusual deconstructions and yes the presentation is on trend sharing of tasting dishes but in this setting it works well. Staff are friendly and very well informed about the food and its presentation. The slightly rustic room and decoration may not be to everyone's taste but we enjoyed the food and the welcome very much: and hope to be regulars.

“Degustation heaven”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Russo & Russo is one of the best restaurants I've eaten at in a long while. My friend and I tried the 7 course degustation menu and I was blown away by the diversity of dishes, the freshness of ingredients and the incredible combination of tastes. The wine selection was excellent and the cocktails delicious. Our waitstaff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We especially loved the duck and the dessert....oh and the petit fours.....and the cheese. Actually, it was all amazing. The change the menu regularly, a couple of dishes every two weeks so there will always be something new to try. Enmore Rd is such a lively hub of activity these days and Russo & Russo is a welcome addition to this new foodie enclave.

a perfect little haven for us to adopt as our local. Inimate, relaxed, engaging staff and divine food. Nothing you have seen before quite as it's prepared and served at this lovely restaurant. We will be back.
