“Delicious Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

We went to ultimo our last night in Bali for some delicious Italian food, we were not disappointed the portion sizes were perfect. Pricing was good, only fault were the cocktails weren't the best tasting. Other than that it was amazing and we would definitely dine there again.

“Yummy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

This was my husbands second visit, I missed going last year. He insisted we come back and the food was really good. This is a very busy restaurant and I suggest booking if you are going any time after 6.30pm. They are amazingly fast setting the used tables up, but in no way hurried us in our eating.

“Our favourite restaurant in Seminyak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We dined here four times during our recent stay in Bali (we were staying close by and can't get enough of it!). We've also eaten here many times over the years. It has a casual but classy vibe - linen tablecloths and napkins, candles, professional staff etc but is very relaxed and inexpensive.

Ultimo was pumping every night. We always asked for a table out the back which was a little quieter (very different vibe to inside near the bar or street side) and there was live music. Generally if you arrive before 7 there should be tables available. Otherwise you can wait at the bar until a table is ready. We never had to wait long.

Our favourite bits
- Very professional and efficient service. It seemed quite formulaic but always friendly (repeating the order back, checking how your food is, asking if there's anything else you need, checking for more drinks etc). We didn't realise till towards the end of our trip that service is not automatically added to the bill (unlike most other places of 5-6%)
- Complimentary fresh bread and garlic butter on arrival
- Very reasonable prices for high quality food. We stuck mainly to the pastas (lobster linguini, squid ink and prawns, seafood risotto-they confirmed whether al dente was okay). Pizzas were fine, dessert was generous.
- Food arrived quickly and piping hot despite the restaurant always being packed. The waitstaff would check if we were ready for mains i.e. we didn't feel at all rushed

Can't wait for our next Bali trip and visits to Ultimo!

“Worth going to”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We were staying in Legain and went based on reviews to Ultimo. I loved how the restaurant had several sections and specifically had an area for non smokers which was also airconditioned. The restaurant is really nice with white table cloths and fairy lights in the gardens. Service was exceptional. It certainly isn't fine dining as it is a very busy if not a chaotic restaurant but amazingly very efficient. The menu is very extensive which would be hard to not be able to find something to suit everyones taste.
The Food; You are given a selection of breads and cheese sticks complimentary which are nice. We had a brushetta which was very tasty. My husband had the pizza and thought is was ordinary, the beef caparcio on a pesto base yum, seafood pasta was good. The food was of a reasonable serve which was enough for us and the price is reasonable although just a tad higher than other places but well worth it. They have a very extensive wine list and quite modestly priced given the price of wine in Bali. Their margarita was the biggest I had in Bali and the best even better than what we had at many mexican restaurants.
I really enjoyed this restaurant and for a $2 taxi ride was more than worth making the effort to go to. We went back a couple of times whilst in Bali.
