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.

Was a great time, atmosphere was brilliant, plenty of waiters around so you won’t be waiting 20 minutes to get ahold of one.

Food and cocktails were brilliant.

My salmon was overcooked even though they asked me how I'd like it. Starters came out after mains were served. Won't rush back

It was my second time at Rocco and I had to see if the spaghetti seafood was as good as it was the first time. I couldn’t wipe the smile of my face, the spaghetti seafood was even better than I had imagined it. I’ve been to many Italian restaurants around Australia and this is number one on my list. When ordering just make sure you change the spaghetti for linguine to really appreciate the dish. Just awesome 👏

Rococo was a most enjoyable and relaxed dining experience for a birthday celebration. Food was surprisingly fresh and delicious from a very large menu and the service was friendly without being intrusive. Well done Rococo, we look forward to dining again at your funky eatery again very soon.

It was a very cold evening and we were close to the door. We left to get dessert elsewhere as we were very cold - the door was constantly opening to accomodate home deliveries.

Great food and service! Unfortunately just extremely noisy in the restaurant and very hard to hear the person next to you and other people at the table which was the only let down. Love the food quality though and the prompt service we received.

If you can cope with a high surrounding noise level while eating and chatting, Rococo's food is delicious. We sampled a variety of shared vegetarian plates. The online booking process was straight forward and simple.

I’ve been to the Rococo on Glenferrie Road before and was very impressed. The Acland Street restaurant has a beautiful atmosphere, with many selections to choose from the menu. All of the serves are big and tasty. There is a kids menu and the waitress brought out crayons for colouring to keep the kids busy. The traditional lasagne was delicious and the pizza was served traditionally from a wood fired oven.
We’ll be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. I brought my parents as a treat after not seeing each other for 3 weeks since lockdown. It was lovely to be able to be out again, and especially somewhere reliably delicious. As Dad said, they know how to make food - Italians 💕

Rococo in Acland Street, St Kilda, is a restaurant that you can always count on. Always consistent, never had a bad meal there. The service has always been friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. You are spoilt for choice as the menu is vast so it will certainly cater for everyone. Enjoy!

Two drinks ordered at the same time and only one arrived. Wait staff appeared to not notice that they'd forgotten about it.
Waitstaff that collected plates was -very- pushy about desserts not taking "no" as an answer almost three times.
