We were about to do the Tour Down Under challenge ride so decided to make a weekend of the tour in the area. We had dinner at vasarelli and went for pasta. I had the duck bologneise and my wife chicken and prawn pasta. The meals were tasty but service was a little disorganised. ...in any case and all in... More

I've been many times over the years with the family and it never disappoints. Good value lovely food and nice wines. They only used to sell their own lable wines but now sell other brands from the district which gives better choice..if your from away this is a safe bet!

Although sitting 30ft from the bustling main street of McLaren Vale, the symphony of rubber and tarmac accompanied by an overture of squawking galahs was barely noted above the ambiance of a jazz rendition of space oddity and Elton John. The table overlooked rustic aging ballastrait towards a lush manacured expanse of lawn beset in hedges. Service has been authentic.... More

The food was great. The interior was most pleasant and the service was great. Parking for disabled was fine and the local wine was most enjoyable. It could be one of the nicest places to go to, if the menu had some local fish ie King George Whiting. Have been back and the salmon was fine so too was the... More

I had looked forward to my birthday Italian meal. Unfortunately my Arrancini entree was bland, my italian girlfriend makes much better. My husband's Polpette entree was great. Our main choices were Genovese pasta, I am still tasting the fat content, it tasted like lamb stew over pasta, and my husband's scotch fillet which he ordered rare. It was, but it... More

We decided to celebrate my daughter's and husband's birthday by going out to dinner at Vasarelli. We had a very disappointing evening. The four of us Were seated at a table better suited for two. This made eating tricky. The restaurant was overcrowded and very noisy. We were not offered wine menus and had to ask for them. Our salad... More

This was our third visit to this establishment and was not disappointed. The wines are all local and although not a big selection it is quite satisfactory including the house wines. The food is consistently good and congratulations to the chef because we have enjoyed all selections we have tried. Excellent pasta dishes and the gnocchi is exceptional. This time... More

We ordered the pork belly and seafood pasta from Vasarelli. The pork belly was crisp and luscious. It was topped with caramelized onions which melted in the mouth. The seafood pasta was more mediocre, the seafood was fresh but the sauce could have packed more flavor.
