Potts Point
About the restaurant
Welcome to your home away from home. The locals' lounge room.
Where new and old friends from around the globe gather for organic charcuterie, house-made pasta + European and Australian wine.

Owner Stu and his team enjoy meats of Europe, the pastas of Italy, and wines from off the beaten track. The restaurant comes together over a love of pork and swill (and country music).

The kitchen team spends afternoons pickling, rolling gnocchi, making focaccia and keeping an eye on our beloved cured meats and pecorino cheese wheels. By nightfall the show is on, the house is full and the atmosphere is swinging.

So come on in and let us guide you through our menu. Welcome to our Diner!!

About the restaurant
Enmore's Osteria di Russo & Russo is a favorite among locals and visitors alike for its modern take on classic Italian flavours, served in its warm and charming restaurant. As snacks to start, the fiore di zucchini fried zucchini flower with goat's milk ricotta and lemon aspen and the cannolo filled with a duck liver parfait, date and hazelnuts are sensational selections.

Some of Osteria di Russo & Russo's specialty dishes include the saltbush gnocchi with pork sausage ragu and pecorino, the chargrilled beef flank with green garlic, nasturtium and smoked eggplant and the slow cooked freemantle octopus with chickpea, salsa rossa and native bush tomato, as well as vegetarian dishes.

Osteria di Russo & Russo's strawberry sorbet, davidson plum meringue and limoncello custard is the perfect dessert with which to finish your meal.

First timer and definitely won't be our last. The food was excellent as was the service. Took me back to Rome. The pasta was beautiful but we just wish there was more pasta in the plate. I don't think an extra scoop or two would break the bank. The chocolate torta and tiramisu are highly recommended. 4.5/5 only because I wanted more of that pasta ;)

We've been to No. 92 many times and haven't been disappointed with their food or service. What is nice is that they change their menu often which makes it a pleasure to done there.
