Osteria di Russo & Russo is a family-run business owned by father and son Pino and Marc Russo. Leading the kitchen team, Head Chef Chris Mosley showcases local ingredients with an Italian-inspired menu. The restaurant is cosy and warm, providing exactly the right ambience for diners, who will feel like they are at home with friends and family.
There’s an à la carte menu and two chef’s menus, and if you would like to try some Italian wines, choose the pairing option (available with both chef’s menus) and let their team do all the work. You get more than your traditional pasta here, with delicious dishes such as artichoke risotto with truffles (a seasonal dish) and melt-in-the-mouth lamb sweetbreads with eggplant, lemon and caperberries. Fremantle octopus terrine with snow peas, saffron aioli, orange and sunflower seeds is a surprising dish filled with textures, vibrant flavours and smart combinations.
PSST! Make sure you check out the bathrooms – you might learn an Italian word or two!
