ABOUT Osteria di Russo & Russo
Top Italian Restaurants

Osteria di Russo & Russo is owned by father and son Pino and Marc Russo, and made possible by a dedicated team of “honorary Italians” in the Kitchen and Front of House.

The Russo family moved from Monte Di Procida, Napoli, to start a new life in Eastwood, Sydney and provide better opportunities for their children. By 1979, 176,536 Italians had also immigrated to Australia, many with similar dreams. Pino Russo eventually opened Russo restaurant on Crown street, had two more children with his Australian wife Chris, and eventually got good at golf. The other 176,535 built the Snowy Mountains Scheme, made Calamari cost $32 a kilo and changed modern Australian culture in all sorts of trivial and profound ways.

Osteria di Russo & Russo pays homage to the influence of these new arrivals to Australia, and re interprets the Italian restaurants of their era, with a Mamma in the kitchen cooking things from scratch, a napkin folded into a swan on the table and a maitre D’ who remembers your wife’s birthday.

Their food involves classic Italian flavour combinations, but uses Australian native ingredients and is informed more by seasons and modern cooking techniques rather than traditional recipes. Their wine list is all Italian, and Italian grapes grown locally, and consists entirely of small volume, family owned and hand made products.

The restaurant is styled on the classic Italian trattorias of the 1970s, with dim lighting, marble and candles everywhere, but serves intricate share plates, offers bar dining and doesn’t play Andrea Bocceli.
