Came here on the recommendation of someone at Wirra Wirra Winery. What an excellent recommendation...the food was very delicious...the young staff were very friendly...and my gnocchi with a mushroom sauce was absolutely yummy. We would recommend this restaurant to,anyone wanting somewhere fantastic to eat out in McLaren Vale. We sat outside on the verandah...it was much quieter than being inside.

This was our third visit and will be the last for a while. Whilst our meals were good, when they finally arrived, the service was severely lacking. Our bread arrived half an hour after ordering. Our meals took over an hour. This restaurant is very popular and very busy, especially on a Saturday night. We expected to wait, but not... More

I was directed to this restaurant by the reviews on Trip Advisor and they did not let me down. The menu selection was well rounded although a fish of the day dish would have made it complete. I had the scallops for entree and the eye fillet for main. Both outstanding. My parents had the squid, lamb and seafood pasta.... More

We always go out for Mother's Day and this was the best time we have ever had. Even though the restaurant was full to the brim, the service was excellent and the food was the best quality Italian we have had in a restaurant. All the courses came out in good time, and the pasta with Crab was outstanding. Highly... More

Right in the heart of McLaren Vale. Delicious food. Nice atmosphere, definitely did not want you there late though, would not accept a later booking and we were 15 minutes late and almost did not get to eat. But enjoyed the food immensely and had a great dinner.

If you like tasty Italian food try Vasarelli's. The wait staff are friendly and helpful. The food is fairly simple but top quality at a fair price. The wine list is not huge so it is easy to pick a glass or bottle of wine. A children's menu is included.

I went here with two colleagues for a business lunch on a Tuesday. We were actually headed for another restaurant but it was closed so we ended up here. The restaurant wasn't full, there were 4 other party's but it was a Tuesday. The waitress showed us to a table and then brought out bread, butter and a good olive... More

Rack of lamb was really nice, done medium rare. Flavors were just nicely done, not to overwhelming nor too mild. Excellent choice for lamb lovers.

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...
