While the wine and coffee were excellent (& one would expect this of an Italian restaurant in an area renowned for its wines), the food we had was not. My husband and I ordered different pasta dishes but the sauces seemed suspiciously similar when we finally received our meals (meals that we hadn't ordered were initially brought to us!) This...

I ate here as part of a full day wine tasting tour of the McLaren Vale. I had the pork which was a large portion and very well cooked and presented, This was washed down with a lovely glass of red wine. Recommended.

Checked the menu and it was supposed to be there we mentioned it to the waitress when we were paying. She was sorry and said she had thought something was missing on... More

Vasarelli is the best restaurant in McLaren Vale. We have been there on numerous occasions and it is always excellent. Their Italian food is delicious & their wine is very good. The owners & their staff are all exceptional.

We visited for a Friday night dinner and loved it. We had made a booking and I am glad we did as it was pretty busy. Despite this service was very attentive. We both enjoyed entrees and mains and the servings were very generous. The arancini in particular could have served two. The mains were again very good sized and... More

The menu had a good range of Pastas and other dishes between three of us we tried some pastas and a lamb dish. The service was efficient and fast and the food of... More
