Blue swimmer lunch

Our wine tour stopped here for lunch and there was a buzz in the atmosphere. They were packed but still managed to provide a good service for our group of 7. The pasta was delicious and it was great to be able to sample more wine from the region. The only down side was that we were told coffee... read more

We enjoyed a good italian meal here. The menu is not large but has more than enough choices to satisfy all diners. We had the bruschetta with duck and arancini balls for entree. Both were very enjoyable without being outstanding, a little more tomato sauce with the arancini would be nice. They are also big servings for entree. For mains... More

Food was amazing starting with Arancini balls & freshly baked bread with home made olives, cheese dip & olive oil. Staff were really friendly, especially the owner she was lovely & atmosphere is really nice as well. We travelled from Melbourne & wanted to eat somewhere nice in McLaren Vale & we weren't disappointed! We all loved our meals; my... More

Visit this restaurant frequently, always have a good experience, food is just like Nanna used to make!!!! Nice atmosphere, clean, very pleasant staff. They only sell there own wine, good whites and reds. We have visited with several groups of friends, they have all liked it very much.

The title says it all. Italian chefs serving up good Italian food let down by the slow service. We had two very tasty pasta dishes spoilt only by the huge quantity of pasta which made the excellent sauces just stretch a bit too far. Neither my wife nor I were able to clear our plates....about half was left. A pleasant... More

Recommended to here by our guide, and it didn't disappoint. Great selection of fine foods. Great service by the young German waitress. All four main meals were high quality - pork belly, seafood pastas and gnocchi. The bruchetta had the most tasty fresh tomatoes. Worth the visit.

Some time ago we ate a meal at Vasarelli's for no better reason other than we were hungry and it was there. It was just a delight. So when we had to entertain a very food-conscious in-law visiting from Malaysia (where the know their food!!), we took him there. Even he was impressed. Excellent menu, cheerful observant staff, friendly management.... More
