Totti’s Rozelle

Totti’s has been a cult favorite among eastern suburb residents and Sydneysiders around the city since it opened at the end of 2018. The Bondi café, led by chef Mike Eggert, is well-known for its bowls of noodles and wood-fired oven bread.

Totti’s has been expanding westward in recent years, launching its CBD version of Bar last year and opening its third Sydney location in Rozelle. The Merivale venue has found a new home at the beloved, temporarily shuttered inner-west tavern 3 Weeds.


Totti’s Rozelle serves the usual menu items from the original Bondi restaurant, such as spinach pappardelle ($27) and chittara and clams pasta ($30). There is also a selection of charcoal oven goodies available, such as entire roasted fish ($42), half-smoked chicken ($28), and, of course, wood-fired bread ($12).


Those seeking a quick bite can choose from the antipasti menu, which includes kingfish Crudo ($12.50), chicken liver parfait ($10), and burrata ($11), or if you’ve made a reservation with a large group of meat-eaters, share a 1.5-kilogram Brooklyn Valley rib-eye steak ($250).


The beverage menu is consistent with what you’d anticipate. However, there’s still an excellent selection of fine cocktails and some delightful natty wines that will mix wonderfully with a huge pasta dish.

A new dessert bar with Italian staples, including gelato, tiramisu ($14.50), coffee granita ($10), pistachio cake ($14.50), and panna cotta ($15) sets this inner west edition apart from its competitors.
