My husband and I came in today and had for lunch the most delicious gnocchi I have ever tasted. We both agreed it was mind blowing. We told everyone around us too, and the waitress! Can I just say we've traveled far and wide. You should give that impressive chef a massive pat on the back. You could ABSOLUTELY tell... More

Went for a family impromptu dinner. They were more than happy to fit us in at short notice. The service was, as usual friendly and attentive. Our glasses were never empty. The extensive wine list consisting of regional Italian and local selections made for a difficult decision, but after some extensive consultation with our host, the decision was made to... More

Great Italian regional food with fabulous specials supporting a very good and reliable menu. Beware the servings are generous but be impressed by the quality of ingredients and the delicious flavours. Never disappointed. Coffee is also very good. Just give it a go. Service has really improved and ensures a really good experience.

We pop into Cafe Rosso time and again when in Bowral. There is always something new and delicious to try. The coffee is always good too.

We regularly eat at Cafe Rosso, and once again last night we were delighted with the authentic regional menu options, the service and the overall italian experience. Sebastian the owner always produces some great matching wines and he is a always a gregarious and wonderful host. I recommend Caffe Rosso to anyone missing an authentic Italian culinary experience in Bowral... More

We've visited Cafe Rosso a number of times for lunch and dinner over the past few years. The food is consistently good, whether you are looking for a quick meal or a longer experience. We had a fabulous lunch recently of salmon carpaccio with fennel and pomegranate seeds, which was delicious. The mushroom pizza was perfectly cooked and the lemon... More

I returned to this cafe this afternoon after a while and was so pleasantly surprised to see great decor, ambience & menu. The service was attentive and friendly. My friend & I had her 87 year old mother with her she was made to feel very welcome inspite of a complete lack of English! So impressive! The food was good,... More
