After some bad experiences in the McLaren Vale area my wife and I decided to go for a meal at Vasarelli's one Saturday night a couple of weeks ago. Man it was awesome. The food was just brilliant. Big flavoured starters, succulently cooked mains. Honestly the food was just great. Plus you arrive there, sit and get a huge smile... More

An impromptu lunch thought a quick phone call Lunch reservations made. Immediately on arrival you are greeted with friendly staff. A quick tour of the establishment to decide on a table. Vicki sitting at the table shelling soy beans. Can't get much fresher than that. She is a warm and inviting character. Engages you instinctively. In a short conversation she... More

Vasarelli family have been growing grapes and making wines in McLaren Vale for decades. A few years back they opened their cellar door and restaurant in the main street of McLaren Vale - a welcome addition to lunchtime fine dining. Well worth a visit!

This is a class restaurant. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for. Not a place for kids, it's for mature diners who want a pleasant night out

Went here based on Trip Advisor and the food was very nice and fresh. Disappointed when is received the bill and was charged $12 per bottle! We actually rang to check if it was byo and was not advised of this exorbitant charge- pretty sneaky- which is a shame as the food was lovely.

This is one of our favourite local restaurants. Always a good range of meals at sensible prices, plus Vasarelli's own wines, & very good coffee. Hard to fault, with great seating both inside & on the veranda. Can be noisy inside if there is a large party having fun, but who can blame anyone for having a good time in... More

Set in an old house in the main street of McLaren Vale, this restaurant ticks all the boxes. It has the homely feel, due not only to the location but also the quality of the service. The bonus to go with the very fine food is the range of Vasarelli wines, including a great vintage selection from their cellars. McLaren... More
