Enjoyable evening out with friends and nothing was too much trouble for the owner and staff of the delightful restaurant. They took the trouble to make a Starter that was not available on the menu. The food was delicious and the dessert - homemade Tiramisu was to die for! Would definitely recommend a visit.

Fantastic people, very kind and very competent. Outstanding food and great choice of wines, both Italian and Australian. the only place when you can eat the original Bresaola, the one you can find only in Valtellina (North Italy). They are closed on sunday and monday and I suggest you to make a reservation. Really outstanding, do not miss this if... More

Have wanted to visit this restaurant for three years, but when I have tried to book - sorry - booked out - got on the phone a week before our intended dinner, and voila! - got a table. The décor is beautiful and elegant. The service is of a very high quality, with just the right amount of attention. The... More

Poor service, our table of 7 never received our entrees and main courses at the same time, the tables next to us arrived after us but were served before us, the restaurant was out of bread towards the end of the Evening, orders taken professionally, but the delivery was substandard with the waitress asking for who was this specific dish,...

Ambrosini's is a longstanding Adelaide institution- and something of a local secret. They offer a consistent blend of high quality food, an interesting wine list, charming ambience and friendly personal service. They have a menu which includes a range of Italian classics, as well as interesting daily specials. This is a good restaurant for a group celebration, such as a... More

I went here for Valentines Day. This shouldn't be used as a measure of the quality of the restaurant as its a set menu and often a time that restaurants aren't set up for. That being said, I did feel that the restaurant was only after maximising profits. The food was good without being spectacular. The waiting staff were nice... More

We celebrated our Wedding anniversary there in November. Great menu choices. Staff extremely professional, friendly and helpful. One of our very favourite restaurants for special occasions. Only a street view at front, within the restaurant the atmosphere is very pleasant.

Family dinner for 6. Booked ahead. Run by a family with a serious care factor. The Italian menu was extensive and fantastic. We ordered lots of things and had the opportunity to share / try . Nothing disappointed !!!! Service was spot on. Good wine list . Highly recommended

Lovely restaurant which was located walking distance from where we were staying. Attentive staff and interesting menu options - although we both ended up choosing the veal. Loved the bread rolls and the complimentary vegetables. Unlike a previous reviewer I thought the portion sizes were ok (although it was so yummy we both could have eaten more!) Veal was very...
