“For Italian trust La Trott ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Casual, tasty Italian without a booking (if you are prepared to wait - sometimes!). The wait simply denotes the popularity of this legal precinct landmark.

Rely on the specials board as well as Andy's world championship pizzas (not that he cooks them - but!). Have the best of both worlds and order the pasta (or any pasta but the marinara is just wonderful) in an entree size with a small pizza to be served simultaneously.

Don't be afraid to call out for a staff member if you need to - they get very busy.

At the end of the day we've never had a bum meal here and most are just magnificent.

City South tram stop is right outside their door (don't get the wrong door though).

“Should have tried a pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We visited for an early dinner during a work trip to Adelaide after several recommendations-the last of which was as we got off the tram outside the restaurant! We were plonked close to the bar and walkway to better tables and the softly spoken greeter was a little unnerving but welcoming. Once he hands you over to the waiting staff.....they couldn't have been less interested. We ordered water and were invited to order some bread or starters. When we said no thank you, the guy said "just some bread rolls then'....I had a pasta main which was gloopy, dull and carelessly put together. The other three diners had seafood, all of which they enjoyed, but again the presentation let it down. Apologies to La Trattoria - we were told your pizzas were the best and perhaps we should have eaten whatever your head honcho decided he wanted us to order!

“Organised chaos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Had dinner here a few months ago, and after being kept waiting despite a booking were eventually well looked after. The place was completely booked up and it appeared that there were a lot of old time regulars at the tables. We ordered dishes a little different to the menu and it appeared to be no trouble at all. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Great hearty dishes with little pretence - we really enjoyed ourselves! Food was tasty and well worth the cost! I will return!
