“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

This was our third visit to Ultimo over the past 4 years. Great prices and consistently good food. Osso Bucco main was a little tough but my partners steak with Gorgonzola sauce was melt in the mouth delicious. Exceptional wait staff too.

Thank Peter S

“Best dinner restaurant in Bali”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Just up the road from Red Carpet in Seminyak. This is by far the best Italian restaurant I have eaten at. The best part about the food, is that it is REALLY CHEAP compared to what you would pay for the same level of taste and portion size anywhere else. *note, feel free to order a half-portion so that you may be able to sample more of the wonderful stuff that comes out of that kitchen. Reservations are recommended, however you can just wait at the bar for an available table
Also guys get to pee on ice blocks in the urinals - bloody awesome

“Nice Food Nice Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Very crowd place for dinner which means a good sign , as people stay in bali which know how much the food cost of one plate should be. Ultimo is giving good food with good quality and good taste . The carbonara tastes good. Definitely come back!

“If you like butter, this is the place for you. Avoid Ultimo passionately.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

The best part of our meal was the butter. I have never been disappointed by Trip Advisor and rarely do I write scathing reviews. But tonight's true lack of passion in the kitchen deserves a comment.

Everything aside from the garlic-herb butter spread was bland, undercooked, and nowhere near authentic Italian cuisine. Either the former reviewers have never been to Florence or have stuffed their faces at Olive Garden with endless bread sticks leaving their palates dry and unaware.

Pizza was soggy and slopped with grease. Seafood risotto tasted like ketchup and clam juice. Steak with gorgonzola cheese sauce was so rare it was trotting off my plate with a white cream puddle marking its trail. How can a chef fumble on a medium rare tenderloin?!?! Wife's red snapper = cardboard. Lemon butter? Try grease pit with a hint of lemon rind.

Yes. The romance and ambiance is there. Dimly lit with the proper spacing between plates made the setting and mood. But at the end of the day, with any dining experience, the establishment has to perform - from food quality to service. Neither existed tonight.

Wait staff forgot to place our main course and twenty minutes later a live cow appears!!! After refusing to pay for below standard food we attempted for dessert...dessert menu never came after a 15 minute wait. Paid the tab and rolled bounced shortly after...left the restaurant with not one staff member bidding us goodnight. Quality.

There are plenty of finer restaurants in Seminyak. Do you research and pick one other than Ultimo.

“Cheap food for cheap budget”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant was packed as usual... Very crowded and noisy, do not go there for a romantic dinner.
Food is a BIG disapointment. Yes, it is cheap, we paid 185,000 for 1 pizza + 1 pasta + 1 starter. But the quality of the food was below average. Avoid the salmon tartare which doesnt taste fresh at all.. the pizza proscuitto was a disaster which industrial ham. The pasta was average...
So to conclude it is a place for budget traveller or group of people who doesnt like good food and prefer to spend their money elsewhere.
