Rococo Acland Street’s atmosphere is both seductive and vibrant, bustling and intimate. The place where Rococo’s signature antipasti boards and simple Italian flavours first came to be, it continues to attract diners from all over Melbourne some 10 years later. Set amongst some of Melbourne’s most loved sites – The Palais, The National Theatre and St Kilda beach to name a few – our expanded restaurant space is bigger than ever, yet remains cosy and flexible, with various spaces available for functions and plenty of nooks for private dining or close conversations.
Join us for a meal of many courses; a hearty breakfast to start the day, a jovial work lunch, a family get together or just a glass of wine to celebrate the end of a day. Oh and our Wood Fire Pizzas are a must. Enjoy the authenticity, quality and warm hospitality of modern Italy right here in Melbourne.
Al fresco outside seating also available.

Amazing food but night slightly spoilt by being unable to split bill which caused lots of messing around at the end - such a shame!

The service was wonderful. Rococo is a consistent winner, great food options, including a vegan menu which pleased my friend immensely. Rococo never lets me down. Great selection of food and drinks, the only issue I have is which cocktail I should get. The prices are fair which makes it affordable. I highly recommend Rococo.

Love Rococo! The pizzas are wonderful - the pumpkin one I could just eat and eat! Went with some friends who had not been before and they loved it too. Great service, staff friendly and quick. Not cheap, but worth every cent.

We used to love Rococo, unfortunately it has really gone down hill. The food was not great, and the service was very poor.

We have started with ordering antipasti and halve way through they bring the mains. We have told them as you can see we are halve way of the first course. 5 min. later he comes back and says chef wants to redo yr order but it will be delayed. We said go ahead we are here to enjoy our dinner not to be pushed out of the door in a hurry because you have customers queuing outside. Despite that he brings the same dishes five min. later. Food was hot and cold,due to being heated up. I had spaghetti with seafood ,ate some of the sea food,did not touch the spaghetti due to raw and cold state. Wife had Spinach&Ricotta cannelloni,of which she left it untouched because it was raw and burned at the top,and cold.
On the way out ,we told the manager,his response was: SORRY TO HEAR.

Very noisy inside, first time ever dining here as we are not from Melbourne, the service was very slow and we waited a long while for our drinks and to be served
When we received our food my girlfriend's was very very salty and was not tasty at all, and mine was very nice but we found multiple pieces of foil throught the dish

The only complaint is the fact of no split bills, it makes if very hard when there is a group of you.

Rococo is our preshow dinner destination whenever we are seeing something at the National Theatre. The staff are always friendly and enquire if we are attending a show, the food is always hot and delicious and we are always out on time to attend our show.

My husband and I recently dined at Rococo in Acland St and it was a great experience. We had the gnocchi al fungi and the rigatoni sausage and both were absolutely delicious.
The service and ambience were also really lovely. We will definitely be back.

Entree's and 1 meal were great, but one main was not.....the Braised Beef Ragout, which was so salty and mushy I could not eat it......when leaving I told the waitress as feedback, and that I couldn't eat it, and all I got in return was "its only just new on the menu so I'll tell the chef"...great for the chef but not much help to me !
Regards,
Darren.

Amazing food and atmosphere. A must visit if you are in St Kilda. I've been going to this restaurant for nearly 10 years after an accidental find on a trip over from Perth. Still my absolute favourite. Amazing food!

I really love Rococo food it is fantastic but I was really disappointed that we had to wait over 1 hour for 3 pasta dishes. I only asked where our meals were because we had to be at a show and people who arrive after we ordered were getting their food.

I think surcharging customers on a Sunday is disgraceful. It’s 2019, yes penalty rates for working the weekend apply but it’s disgusting that your customers are forking that bill.

We recently dined here for dinner on Mother’s Day. We waited at the front desk for quite a while with wait staff passing us but no-one acknowledging us. Finally we were greeted and taking to our table. We sat for at least 15 or so minutes and no one came to take drink orders. We had to wave down a staff member and order drinks and ask for water. We weren’t off to a great start. We ordered our meals which were the ricotta gnocchi, the mushroom gnocchi, the pan fried prawns with linguine and a kids gnocchi bolognaise along with the Italian coleslaw. The pastas were tasty and the salad was very nice. Cocktails were good also.
