“East of Rundle”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

The Restaurant could be brighter and it's location is just OK. The food was fine but not special. I like to feel that I would want to go back but didn't have that feeling

“An oldie but a goodie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

This place never fails to disappoint. It's like an Italian grandma - always there and fills you up! Excellent pasta, veal and pizza. Highly recommended spot just off Rundle Street. Fun & buzzy atmosphere.

“Good food, but ordinary service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

In town for the Tour Down Under bicycle race, we reserved an outside table for after the first night's racing which concluded around 8pm on a Sunday night. Amalfi does not ordinarily open on a Sunday, but it had for the Tour. We arrived at the designated time and while our table was free, and quickly allocated, that is where the service finished. After that we had to keep asking for menus, cutlery, condiments, water and most importantly food. No advice received about the specials on the night which we subsequently found on a blackboard and the list was extensive. Food and wine when it arrived was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed. Adelaide restaurants don't seem to enforce the no smoking rule at outside tables and on this occasion we were surrounded by diners intent on sharing their smoke with us. We therefore went elsewhere for dessert and coffee once we were able to get and pay the bill.

“Recommended by an Italian for an Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

My wife was looking for authentic Italian food and this was recommended by a local Italian we met near the Market. It was hard to find because there isn't a big sign and it's on a side street, but once we walked in circles we found it. The pizza was up to my exacting standards and my wife enjoyed her spaghetti with mussels. As an added bonus, one of the waiters was Italian and my wife enjoyed being able to speak in her native language. It was a little pricey, but I felt it was worth it. They can get busy, and there isn't a good spot to wait for your table, so be aware of this possibility.

“Just take away next time!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Rude waiters - No concept of customer service! One of the waitress literally threw one of the plates onto our table.

Slow service - we waited 30m at the table before any of the waiters approached us. Needed to ask 3 times to ask for water. Food only arrived 1hr after we arrived.

Since they only have 2 waiters on the floor, I was told that the slow service was due to my fault of not pre-ordering. Well if the restaurant knows its going to be busy, stop being stingy and put more staff on the floor - if this is an issue then dont take bookings that you cant handle.

If this is how you treat your customers, u will end up loosing them.
