“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

A very quiet night in Umbertos when we had dinner here. Attentive staff, great food beautifully presented. Good menu. We would have liked another dinner here but ran out of time.

“Excellent value for a meal worth eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We had dinner at Umbertos after arriving in Coober Pedy on a Sunday night. We enjoyed a lovely meal, nice wine list and good service. I had the skinless pork belly and my husband had the chicken breast fillet - both of which were well cooked and presented. This is probably our most exotic meal for the last 4 weeks!

The dessert menu is really good as well with quite a few things to choose from. Everything from mini pavlova to chocolate pannacotta, tiramisu, sticky date pudding and strawberries romanesco. If you're over pub grub and roadhouse meals, this is an restaurant really worth trying. Value was excellent - it was about $110 for two of us with main course, dessert and a glass of wine each.

“Great food in the Outback”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We had dinner and enjoyed the experience as it was our 40th Wedding Date. The waiter was exceptional and brought us a Complementary glass of champagne to start. Then we couldn't decide on a wine so he let us taste both Merlots to make our choice. Fantastic. The meal was the best we had in town. We then went down to the Cocktail bar and finished off with nice Cocktail which the waiter came down to do for us as the Bartender was new. Can highly recommend this place for a memorable dining experience.

“Outback hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The a la carte menu was extensive and the dishes we ordered very tasty. Tables were beautifully presented, with white tablecloths and elegantly folded napkins. The ambience was as good as any top restaurant in a capital city. The service was of a high standard.

A special thank you to Pete.
