This is a great place for a business lunch - you can have a quick meal or sit all afternoon. If you want a quick meal just make sure you let them know when you get there, or if you have a large group perhaps pre-order. The service is always excellent. I eat here regularly and will continue to do... More

I've been here for lunch a few times now. It's a place "to be sure", but people wouldn't pay these prices if the food wasn't great! The menu is satisfactorily varied (have had great pasta and risotto in particular) and the atmosphere is nice. It has a touch of sophistication for breakfast or lunch. It's a perfect spot if you...

Prices are average for this sort of restaurant and the place has a good atmosphere. I was a bit disappointed with the charcuterie, felt like they could have individualized it a bit more. Roasted chicken with cherries was really nice. Very different range of wines, but no problem choosing something nice.

The pasta was good but not a wow. The wine prices are frankly ridiculous. $59 is one of the cheapest wines available. It can be bought in the wine shop for $19.90 or less. If you want good food and a 300% wine mark-up this is for you.

We had breakfast here. The restaurant was busy with takeaway coffee orders which is a good sign that the coffee will be good and it was. Our meals were excellent. We would eat here again.

I echo the comments above and in particular I should like to comment on the friendliness of the Maitre d' - Abdulla . This was my first visit, and my daughter's fourth. The ambiance of the restaurant is enhanced by the constantly changing passage of Adelaidians going about their business.

I say this reluctantly as I tried not to like it because it is full of dudes in suits that want to be seen, but the food is truly excellent and the service perhaps the best in Adelaide and it has great daily specials. The wine list is superb. Not cheap but value for money considering quality. Now if only... More

A favourite place for lunch when in the city or meeting a special friend for lunch. This place is iconic in Adelaide - has been consistently good since the day it opened. The best and friendliest service and the food is to delight in time and time again. It feels like you are in Italy not downtown Adelaide. Well done... More

Food was magnificent, from Melbourne to see a customer. The donuts first with a coffee. Then we waiting for lunch at 1.30. The entrees where to die for. And the blue swimmer pasta knocked me about. Simply the best.
