With its sleek setting and menu packed with Italian cuisine, it's no wonder that Melbourne’s Cafe Rosco has been winning over the hearts of South Yarra for many years now. Begin your meal with the calamari fritti (lightly-crumbed calamari rings served with chips, salad and homemade tartare sauce), garlic prawns or lamb cutlets, before moving on to your main. We recommend trying one of Cafe Rosco’s infamous pizzas, like the tropical delight (tomato, cheese, ham, mushrooms, pineapple, prawns) the red devil (tomato, cheese, hot salami, mushrooms, green peppers, chilli, anchovies) or the Aussie (tomato, cheese, ham and bacon).
Other Italian classics on the menu at Cafe Rosco include hearty Italian pastas as well as an array of meat and seafood dishes. We love the pollo avocado (grilled succulent chicken fillet topped with avocado and creamy wine sauce served with potato and vegetables). To guarantee a table at Cafe Rosco on St Kilda Road in Melbourne’s South Yarra, making a recommendation ahead of time is wise.
