We enjoyed a wonderful experience at Nido .. we chose the feed me option and it was wonderful to try the many different options ... the portions were not large and enabled us to enjoy the food without over eating .. we will be back

I didn’t find all the pasta dishes especially good.
The tiramisu was dry

Mostly delicious food, disappointed our waitress did not let us know the specials on offer, but overheard her later telling the next table with great enthusiasm. Tiramisu was dry, think they forgot to add the coffee!!

Totally meet and exceeded my expectations. Beautiful and attentive service, immaculate dishes. The pasta is to die for and the tartare with puffy bread next level. Will be back for sure.

Overall Nido is great I have been a number of times but it is not consistent.
Service was good but it felt as though we were being hurried to order. Our pasta was a little too al dente, we couldn’t put a fork in the salt and vinegar potatoes as they were overcooked, and needed more vinegar as they just tasted like potatoes you may prepare at home.
There also seemed to be quite a test break between entree and main.

We had a lovely dinner at Nido. Our food was great and waiting staff brilliant. I thought some of the dishes could have been a little larger but it was adequate. The pickled zucchini we had as a side was amazing. The staff are very well trained and very professional. Good ambience and doors open onto footpath and outdoor tables which was so pleasant on a mild autumn evening. We happened to mention we were there for our anniversary and although we’d already paid our bill the waitress asked us to wait a minute because they had something for us. She came back with a serve of delicious chocolate ice cream sprinkled with chopped hazelnuts for us. A very nice gesture. Would definitely recommend.

The dishes had uncommon and interesting flavours. For entrees, we had the crab (very fresh tasting) and the quail (beautiful crunch). For the main courses the mullet was superb and the hand cut tagliatelle with the pork crunchy bits were very tasty but too salty. We really enjoyed the salt and vinegar potatoes. For dessert the yogurt and bay leaf oil gelato was surprisingly fresh and not sweet. It was a perfect way to end our meal.

Great service, good ambience, however the food was a disappointment. The pasta was over salted and very undercooked (definitely not al dente). The potatoes lovely and crisp however again were over salted. The new addition to the menu of the mortadella sandwich was something you would except at a lunch bar. Overall the food was overpriced, and substandard.

Had the tasting menu and food was hit and miss. Anchovies on toast were bland, bread and whipped ricotta were yummy. The pasta was a letdown, garlic was overpowering on one pasta, and the cavatelli was very doughy and under seasoned. The main course steak was cooked well and tasty, with salad and crispy potatoes. Dessert was nice but ultimately just ice cream and toasted hazelnuts. The service was attentive and good environment. For $78 per person, we expected a little more. Left a little underwhelmed.

The starters were terrific, they were new to us but very good. Terrific lamb and osso bucco pasta and sensational tiramisu. More local wines would have been good.

This place is in the top few pasta joints in Adelaide and has consolidated it with a menu surrounding the pasta that provides the perfect foil. You can't go past the gnoccho fritto honey and ricotta signature starter. Service is personal, friendly and efficient, they are coping with a busy little restaurant very professionally. Becoming a must dining experience in Adelaide for visitors also.

The Food was exceptional, the wine was fantastic and the staff really made the night for us. Thank you to the whole team!
