“Absolutely exquisite food!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

We went to Enoteca for the first time to celebrate our 5th Wedding Anniversary (we booked several days prior). The atmosphere was great, and the tables very nice. Service was fantastic. All the dishes we had tasted fabulous, the only thing I can critise was that one of the mains was over seasoned. Desserts were magical, the fig & honey semi freddo was delicious! Highly recommend!

“Disappointing wine list”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Love Italian food and hadn't managed to get to Enoteca so seized the opportunity of a friend over from interstate to try this one out.
Tables and ambience all very nice and the service was good.
They require you to have at least 2 courses on Friday and Saturday nights- which didn't matter in a way because we would have done so anyway, but I think it rather sends the wrong message: something like, 'we can't be bothered with you unless you are prepared to spend a mimimum amount of money'. This might explain why there were only 4 tables occupied perhaps- not a good look on a Friday night.
I had quail for entree and it was really good (although I could not understand why it was advertised as 'de-boned' because it certainly had bones in it). The other entrees of gnocchi and octopus were really good also. Two of us had duck for main course- which was disappointing for me as it was not nearly up to the standard of similar dishes in France (where I have recently been) but the the main course of fish of the day was very good also.
The great disappointment was the wine. One of our party is actually a wine maker so knows his wine but as many wines on the list were Italian we did not know them so had to rely on the sommelier to recommend something good- and the wines we had were not. Having access to unfamilar wines should be an adventure and an opportunity to try something new and exciting - not the same old stuff we know, but we were disappointed.The arneis we had first was simply ordinary and so was the nebbiola we had next. I would have expected much better from a restaurant of this standard, because after you have ordered an unfamiliar foreign wine you are stuck with it.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Food and service at Enoteca is superb. Crab filled zuchinni flowers were magic, in fact all dishes we had were great. The only criticism is that there is no bar to wait at if you are waiting for a table.

“Fantastic food and first class service”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Had dinner on a saturday night and it was fully booked out (so book ahead). All the food was cooked perfectly and was very very tasty. Service was some of the best I have seen in Adelaide.
