Italian

Ronnie’s menu is tasty, light, easy-to-share New York-Italian inspired food.

Much of the menu is based around the concept of cicchetti (Italian tapas) dishes like our fermented potato focaccia, buffalo mozzarella + lemon, and cacio e pepe inspired waffles.

If you’re still hungry, go ahead and dig into our small selection of handmade pastas or treat yourself to something delicious from our open grill.

    A fantastic little restaurant in the heart of the CBD, attentive and friendly service, delicious meal (crab fettuccini), great wine, décor and ambiance spot-on, the perfect table in a little nook to take in the atmosphere and watch the chefs in the open kitchen put the finishing touches on meals. Highly recommend, will definitely be returning!

    We only ate the pasta's and they were very very good. Open kitchen showed they were proud of their cooking and had nothing to hide. The gentle hum of a fast professional kitchen was all we saw. Every meal placed on the delivery counter to be distributed looked really appealling. A chef checked every one before they were taken to a table. I guess to ensure presentation and standards were kept high. And they were. Very good food. Not large, but good. Large open plan room. This a little gem at the bottom end of Collins St where there are not a lot of options for dining in a nice reasonably priced place.

    I just had the most enjoyable dinner with friends at Ronnie's. The food was so tasty and perfect for sharing. That potato focaccia, I could've eaten multiple serves of it mopping up all the delicious cicchetti. We loved the eggplant on toast, marinated mussels, fried sprouts with sunflower hummus and that chilli crab pasta - I wanted to lick the bowl! The tiramisu bombe Alaska and chocolate torte were also amazing...even the grilled broccolini! The service was really attentive and friendly. It was also reasonably priced for the quality, $50-60p.p for food plus drinks. I loved that we didn't feel rushed and tables were nicely spaced out. The ambience is nice and cosy especially coming in from the freezing cold. Thank you for such a lovely night, I'll definitely be back!

    We had a wonderful evening. Everything was fantastic from the moment we arrived. The watermelon martini cocktail was perfect to start. We had the feed me menu and were not dissapointed with a single item. Eddy took the time to discuss wine pairing and both the red and white were perfect accompanying beverages. The kitchen and wait staff make you feel so welcome.

    Drinks service a mess with wine arriving after entree despite early order and after bringing wrong bottle. No wine knowledge by servers. Food over salted for three of us. No bread apart from in-house focaccia which was average at best. Not authentic Italian by any stretch. Looks like still ramping up after Covid with very junior staff. Sorry won’t be recommending.

    Delicious food, but lack of wait staff/training made our experience a bit disappointing. Food came out at 45 minute bursts, and it was excruciatingly difficult to get someone’s attention to check in on how things were coming along. I understand that being short staffed can make things come out a bit slower, but we would have appreciated this being communicated to us, and would have been more than happy to order more drinks from the bar while we waited for the food.

    12 of us visited Ronnie’s for my birthday. Drinks were amazing, all cocktails were well made, great quality. Staff were very attentive, no glass was left empty for long, we even got complimentary tequila at the end. The food was great apart from the Wagyu Tri-Tip which was quite tough. But overall a lovely experience, will definitely be back.

    I don’t usually leave bad reviews but this place is extremely over rated and hyped up on social media Terrible service not enough staff on floor to cover the basics of water and drinks Only nice thing was the focaccia and the figs, strozzapreti was undercooked not enjoyable Waygu was burnt on the outside and extremely rare in the middle salmon was also disappointing Overall was a disappointing experience which is unfortunate as I’ve had my eye on this place for a while

    Very warm and inviting manager but food is nothing to write home about. The menu and food seemed a bit all over the place - not exactly sure what the theme is meant to be or what they’re going for. Sweet potato focaccia was yummy. Mozarella appetiser was served with a lemon curd that was overpowering and sweet. Asparagus served cold with too much sweet balsamic glaze and random edible flowers. Rigatoni was undercooked. Just my 2c but feel that it would be better if they just kept things simple, taste test all their dishes and focus on flavour.

    While the food was nice, our waiter (who I believe to be the manager) was very overzealous in his behaviour. At first he seemed like he was just trying to be friendly, but his efforts to continuously insert himself in my family’s private dinner conversation, and overly familiar nature felt uncomfortable. He continuously touched his hands on us, and spoke closely to everyone with his mask around the chin, and acted as if he had a few drinks before the night started. By the end of the night, he called me ‘babe’ while I was paying, which felt far too familiar and unwelcome. It is completely understandable that restaurants are understaffed at the moment, however the 2 hour wait for the food would have been more bearable with a more polite waiter.

    Ronnie'sResponded on January 17, 2022

    Ronnie’s really delivered and more. A bit out of the way in Collins street, this eatery deserves more attention from the weekend punters. Delicious food and great attentive service. Our steak was cooked to perfection, pasta on point and scrummy sides. A highlight was the consistency of quality cocktails delivered from the bar, great stuff. I recommend trying a dirty martini.
