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.

Me and my partner have gone many times and the food Is always delicious and staff are very friendly and helpful. The only downside is that it can get quite noisy but I wouldn’t say it distracts too much from having a good time.

We enjoyed the 4 course tasting plate and the food was exceptional. We tried dishes we wouldn’t necessarily have chosen from the menu but could not fault anything. The outstanding dishes were the Kingfish, Parmesan Flan and the perfect al-denté Pasta dishes.
Initially we were seated alongside a group of noisy diners but at our request were moved to a much quieter booth, thankfully, as this would have ruined our lovely birthday lunch.
A big thank you to the serving staff and the kitchen staff for a lovely experience.

Maybe I didn't read the lunch menu closely enough but I don't think I (fully) got what it described. And I still think that adding bubbles to make ordinary water sparkling shouldn't cost $6.

I had told my friends that this was the best lasagne I have ever had. When we got it however, it was so dry and had absolutely no sauce. Obviously the menu has changed but let's hope it changes again because it's now the worst lasagne I have ever had.

HOWEVER, the bread, parmigan flan and carbonara was incredible! Highly recommend everything but the lasagne!

I booked into Oggi for a surprise birthday dinner for my partner and was blown away at how amazing everything was. Incredible service, delicious food and great atmosphere. Everything was ran so smoothly and all of my special requests were done without an issue, highly recommend. Will definitely be back very soon, not a fault to be said.

A wonderful night out, we were provided seating options and selected a quiet spot at the bar. We were attended to all night, given educated run down of drinks and meals. A perfect place for groups or date night!

Loved the food and ambience. Service was extremely casual and had to ask several times for drinks. Once we received the bill we were pushed out the door even though out time slot (2 hours) was not up.
Would recommend to a friend for the food.

One of my, and my husband's, all time favourites. Consistently fabulous food - go the parmesan flan, Kingfish crudo, Rabbit ragu and finish with the Tiramisu Affogato - great staff and a nice relaxed vibe.
The noise in the back part can get a little loud, challenging if you're sitting in a group on both sides of one of the long tables, but the front bar section is always great and our favourite area to sit. So happy to be able to go back there after lockdown and find it just the same as always.

Really Good value for a fun and full-on meal. Our waiter helped us pick out a fantastic bottle that went will with our dishes for $70, and they timed out the meal perfectly with a full spread of entrees followed by 3 pasta courses one at a time. Good fun, great food.

Fabulous restaurant for a special occasion if you like a more lively atmosphere. The food was delicious and authentic but for someone on an average wage it was super expensive! Drinks were just as pricey but my main gripe is that the size of the piece of bread (that you pay for) would even be too small for a toddler! All in all a good night and the facilities were great...

This was by far the best dining experience we have had in a LONG time!! The service was attentive, but not intrusive and very friendly. Not only that but the food was impeccable! Will absolutely be back to one of our new favourites many times to come.

On trend casual eatery. Nice simple food but a little overpriced and very rushed.

I popped in for an early dinner for one whilst in Adelaide on business. Second visit to this restaurant, first experience was much more enjoyable.

Ordered the arancini as entree, simple pasta as the main and a vegetable side dish. To drink, I ordered a glass of Italian Sangiovese (very average) and sparkling mineral water (fake carbonated tap water) which really annoys me!

Arancini arrived quickly accompanied by the vegetable side dish? I didn’t complain and ate it, nice but very salty. Arancini were crunchy and tasty, really enjoyed.

Upon clearing my entree plates, I asked the waitress to hold the main for 10 mins, 30 seconds later my pasta arrives? The waitress apologised and said it was already made. Pasta was very simple, pork sausage & chilli in bianco. It was tasty but too heavy on the butter and oil, needed more to cut the sauce, stock, fresh parsley, white wine??

Mains cleared promptly and immediately asked if I wanted dessert? I had barely digested. I declined politely and the barman instantaneously printed my bill. Way too obvious guys, need to train your staff much better!

Entered the restaurant at 6:15pm and paid my bill at 6:52pm. Given the limited competition in the area and how busy they are, Its quite obvious that they are are simply pumping people through.

In summary, good effort for the Adelaide food scene but still a fair way to go...
