Danny Russo specialises in modern Italian cuisine, drawing on his ancestral roots in Basilicata, Southern Italy yet unavoidably influenced by his Australian upbringing. He sources ingredients from across Australia and Italy and strives to find new ways to incorporate them into his dishes.
His aim is to create innovative contemporary Italian food, without compromising the classic “Cucina Italiana”. He was awarded a Chef’s Hat at L’Unico (Balmain) and Winner of ‘Best Formal Italian Restaurant’ for three consecutive years in the Restaurant and Catering Association Awards at L’Unico (Balmain). Since Danny took over the Beresford Hotel Trattoria, it has fast become a hotspot in the inner city suburb of Surry Hills.
