Italian
Fugazzi….it’s that moment of deja vu that begs the question, have I been here before?

An overnight institution where velvet, leather, and marble create a decadent and luxurious atmosphere designed to invoke a sense of nostalgia. There it is, a romantic representation of the past, that simultaneously manages to remain firmly rooted in the contemporary.

Is its bold character a physical manifestation of the Italians’ age-old gift of making art out of life, or is it just Fugazzi?

Fugazzi Bar & Dining Room. Snacks, pasta, steaks, with sophistication. Sister restaurant to Nido Bar | Pasta in Hyde Park.

    Food was delish & service was mostly great. Had a strange waitress who was giving us attitude BCos we simply asked if the pasta dish had meat, purely to follow up with 'bcos we opted for a pescitarian option.' she proceeded to rudely state that she would ask. Question was simple - did the dish have meat?

    On a weekend getaway from Melbourne and had lunch at Fugazzi. It’s been on my list for awhile and it definitely lived up to all the hype and succeeded my expectations! The food, the drinks, the decor and service was 10 out of 10! The only problem is that I live in Melbourne so cannot revisit on a regular basis…. Highly recommend x

    With three sittings, our table felt extremely rushed and the waitress made it know multiple times how much time we did/didn’t have. Dinner felt rushed and didn’t feel like we were valued as diners - irrespective of how much you spend, however given our total bill (which was considerable) the level of service didn’t feel adequate.

    Absolutely love Fugazzi - what a treasure for Adelaide! We enjoyed the entire experience - from a cocktail at the bar all the way through 3 amazing courses of delicious food and wines to match. Georgie looked after us beautifully- perfect service with a smile! It was a fabulous way to celebrate a birthday and was worth the month wait to get a table !

    We had the 3 course Pranzo menu Food was incredible, tasty, and there was plenty to share. The decor was stunning and service was, for the most part excellent. My one issue that stops me giving it 5 stars was that as we couldn’t finish all the food, I happened to ask the waiter for a container to take the rest home. He shrugged and said they don’t have a takeaway licence and therefore we couldn’t takeaway any of the food. He instead suggested we continue eating the food or he’d get rid of it. This seems pretty appalling and wasteful behaviour for any restaurant. I can’t stand food wastage and considering we spent over $600 I was extremely disappointed I wasn’t able to take my leftover food with me. Great place to eat but consider BYO Tupperware…

    The food was very good , serving size was very generous and the wines were nice. The 2 hour limit is very restrictive and I would choose somewhere else for a longer meal experience. The wine list is extensive but needs more options under $100.

    Our waiter for the evening was Eroll. He was terrific.. very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Another waiter (not Eroll) dropped a water jug on our table which smashed and covered my partner in water. He had to sit with damp trousers for the rest of the evening. The waiter (not Eroll) provided hand towels to my partner but referred to it as a small misadventure. It was more than that.. it was humiliating and as it was our anniversary dinner really disappointing. The food was mostly lovely although the steak was chewy and a bit tough.

    We always eat here when we come over from Melbourne. Overall excellent. Our only issue is with the degustation plates coming too thick and fast, with no time in between to savour the individual offerings.

    A bit disappointed this time. Food is oily, not as tasty and very salty. Compare to we dined in on 24/5/2022 for 5 course tasting menu, we enjoyed the whole lot, that is why we come back to eat again. Unfortunately the standard of food has completely dropped so much this time! I can taste it was not cooking by the same chef! Hope the next time I come food can be improved.

    It was quite good, the service was excellent. Food was excellent for the first part, pasta was good but oily, steak had a great flavour, but unfortunately was a bit “chewy “, desert was ok. Coffee was barely warm. Would we recommend it, yes. Would I rush back? Possibly not.

    What a find for Qlders trying to find dinner in Adelaide on a Sunday night. Service was great. Good range of wines, although I chose poorly. The place was humming. Meals were great, a bit on the pricey side but I will always pay for good service. Weather was terrible outside which also made for a great cozy experience inside. The location in a quaint alley way was all the more ambient. What a great find on a wet, cold and windy Adelaide winter Sunday night.
