Italian
At Osteria Oggi, we cook food that we love to eat using seasonal produce, and serve it in a way that is designed to share. Pasta is made fresh daily, with a carefully chosen wine list to match.

‘Oggi’ is ‘today’ in Italian – this sums up what we offer – sophisticated Italian food, inspired by tradition but in keeping with today’s tastes and best available produce.

We have created an Italian piazza setting in the heart of CBD Adelaide, complete with a cobblestoned floor, arches, arbour, meat room, private cellar, intimate booth seating, and a mezzanine-level kitchen.

Our 20-metre formed concrete bar is the ideal place to sit and graze on some small dishes (we’re not just about pasta) or just swing by for a drink.

This was my second time to Oggi. The food wasn't as good as the first time I visited. The main waiter also appeared to be unhappy, didnt seem like he wanted to be there etc, which I'm sure isn't the type of customer service you want to be providing.

What a great evening.
It was my wife's 50th Birthday donner and She was made to feel very special from the Team.
We were seated at a fantastic table and given a glass of Sparkling straight away to Celebrate.
We has the Anchovy Solders and the Arancini's for Entrée and then the Wild Boar pasta nd the Rabbit Ragu pappardelle , WOW.
Food fantastic , service outstanding.

Really appreciate the night.

Highly recommended.

Unfortunately it was our anniversary and just before our mains arrived I began feeling ill (through no fault of the restaurant) it got so bad we had to leave, I couldn’t eat any of my main and the waiter was nice enough to not charge for my meal which they didn’t have to do as it wasn’t the restaurants fault just my bad luck. My wife was able to take her meal home and enjoyed it. We look forward to coming back and enjoying the experience properly in the future. Thank you again

Our table service was fantastic. He was very friendly, relatable and 'real'. Funny and on the ball when we needed him. Atmosphere was great and food was delicious. Prices reasonable. Loved it!!

A great atmosphere with beautifully presented and seriously tasty food. Awesome wine list and the wait staff were gracious, knew their products and had a fine sense of how to care for people. The bread is amazing too!

Everything at Osteria Oggi was incredible! It truely feels like you’re dining on an outdoor patio in Italy. I couldn’t fault the food, although the serving size of the pasta could be bigger, especially for the price (highly recommend the carbonara). The cocktails were delicious and a nice selection of wine. I’ll definitely be back!

Osteria Oggi - vibrant, small & ambient. If you close your left eye, tilt your head slightly... you’re virtually in bella Roma. The blue swimmer crab pasta was faultless. Customer service was brilliant, especially our waiter Whitney (provided great suggestions alongside some witty sideline banter). Catch you guys again before the new year *probably multiple times*. Grazie! 👏🏼

I'm wondering if Oggi is just a bit too tricky in food and wine for me. We had the 3 course chefs surprise and it was good but we were not sure where we were up to as we went along. Very different courses but good. The wine list is tricky as well. We tried an Adelaide Hills Pinot that was highly recommended but was not great. Some of the better known Hills Pinots would have been far better.
The noise level is very loud and is a real draw back if business chat is on the agenda. Sharing bench tables is not for everyone.

I think our orders did not get to the kitchen - after over an hour waiting (12.50 order and 2 pm arrived) we followed up and they came 15 minutes later - our guests had to rush down their food which was unfortunate

Had a wonderful experience here last night. We were kindly given a booth for the four of us when I booked, so that the restaurant’s fairly noise level was less bothersome. The food at Osteria Oggi is always outstanding, and last night was no exception. I love the baked eggplant dish and the broccoli and anchovy gnocchetti. Everything is fresh, fresh, fresh, the wines are fantastic and the service is exceptional. This place is a favourite.

Food good - staff were inattentive, poor observation- no upselling or help with menu choices- made whole group feel like unwanted disturbance. Food was amazing though-

Was recommended this restaurant by a friend. Loved the menu, and really enjoyed my dish which was the swimmer crab linguine. The staff member was very helpful and took time to explain menu dishes, and then suggest wine which would suit the dish...both were excellent and very authentic!
The gelato for dessert was nothing exceptional, but entree's and mains were really well presented and tasted great. Only negative was the noise level. We found it very noisy with the restaurant almost full on a Tuesday night, and the hard surfaces obviously don't absorb the noise. Would still go back tho!

Always a pleasure dining here. Attentive staff who also have character. Good drink selection. Food the standout. Highlights being tuna carpaccio, crab linguine and squid ink pasta. Bought the family who were very impressed. Will return again for sure!

The pasta was very delicious and fresh. The sauces and other ingredients were bland and not that tasty. Way too loud and noisy for any type of conversation.
Family seating at long long shared tables which was not to our liking. But would be fun for groups and families.
