‘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.
I’ve always heard good things about this place but I went recently with family for my birthday and found it very underwhelming.
We all had pasta dishes and they all lacked something or many things. My carbonara was undercooked and didn’t have much flavour, mums pasta was swimming in oil, and dads pasta was bland, just to mention a few.
The tuna carpaccio and roasted potatoes were lovely but we didn’t bother sticking around to try their desserts.
I would be tempted to come back again to try their entrees and mains, but never the pasta again.
Service was also lacklustre, it was like they tried their hardest not to be friendly? It was weird. I also asked for a non-alcoholic wine and they only filled the glass to 1/4, if that, full and for $10 a pop I was expecting more.
Fantastic customer service. Thank you in helping us celebrate our wedding anniversary
Grease and beautifully prepared seafood entrees followed by excellent pasta, and a really interesting winelist
Perfect service, food and atmosphere! We will be definitely going back - thanks
Great food and so good to actually get what you order with lovely staff.
Great meal and service, as usual.
Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Fabulous food, fabulous service and a lovely ambience.
I do believe u should offer BYO as I took along an expensive special wine, that I was refused to drink. Happy to pay corkage. Had to drink a wine that was not up to the standard that brought with me.
Wonderful Italian food with a twist! Absolutely love it. Well done
Always a GREAT experience. Many thanks to all and our waiter Samuel in particular. I will be sure to be back and to highly recommend Osteria Oggi. The BEST Italian restaurant in Adelaide
Amazing food and ambience!! The pasta was sooo fresh
The food is one thing, but fun and banter with the team is what makes the venue popular. Knowing the wine and menu and making recommendations is key to the successful interaction with the guests.
Keep up the high standard.
The food was absolutely stunning - delicious, fresh and presented artistically on the plates. The portions were ample and satisfying. The waiters were very helpful and considerate of our needs. We'll be back!
Spent a fantastic, leisurely 2 hr lunch celebrating our 8 yr anniversary at osteria oggi. Staff were super attentive and helped us make great decisions for our meal and wine choices. Definitely a place to revisit!
Always an amazing experience at Oggi! We enjoyed every aspect of our lunch - thank you!
Great food and waiters were very helpful. Created a beautiful dining experience
Exceptional service, food and atmosphere. One of my favourites in Adelaide!
Great experience, great food and a nice venue. Would recommend!
Our waiter helped choose the dishes for us- table of 6.
Everything he ordered for us was very delicious ! Would definitely come back
It's the food's reputation that will bring you here and the food experience that will bring you back.
Outside of this, lighting is low, menu font is small, noise level medium to high and drinks menu limited and way overpriced.
Staff uniformly excellent and a nicely set up, modern restaurant.
When I knew I was visiting Adelaide again I made sure I had time to have a meal here.
Excellent service. Home made pasta is very good - squid ink pasta exceptional. Tiramisu affogato desert also very good desert. Quick lunch service. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Beautiful food in a fabulous setting - service was excellent & overall a great experience, highly recommend
Beautiful food and a very relaxed and friendly service. Warm environment that is the perfect balance of fancy but care-free dining.
When i Made my reservation, i mentioned that we’re on our honeymoon and they gave us a glass of prosecco as a present. IT was Nice to start our cosy evening diner. From the beginning till the end perfect. Limoncello was sold out, but they let us taste other things to compencate. Perfect evening! Thanks!
Always a great place at any time of the day , best food , a nice selection or wine and the best looking staff in Adelaide 10/10
love the food, love the bread, great staff just a wonderful place to go for a lovely meal
Everything about Oggi is impeccable! - but the server was a little bit weird. Weird starey things and just kind of a creeper. Not to say he wasn't nice or good necessarily.
Food is always outstanding, really need to sort out how new arrivals are managed when it’s busy, there is no where to stand without blocking the way and if staff are to busy to attend to you right away you are left awkwardly trying to dodge rushing staff and other customers - kind of gets you off on the wrong vibe
We totally enjoyed the food. The pasta were absolutely delicious and cooked well. The seating arrangements were either at the bar counter or shared long tables. Service was quick we were helped through the ordering process. We will definitely return and will recommend to others.
Best Italian I have ever had. Service was great, Waiters suggestions were on point. Nice clean restaurant.
Make sure you have a reservation as they are quite busy on friday and saturday.
A great spot for any occasion, with the polenta dish a real pleasant surprise.
It was our first time at Osteria Oggi and we will definitely be back! The food was amazing, extremely tasty and plenty to eat, the Waiter/Bar Attendant was very knowledgeable and he made sure that our wine glasses were constantly replenished and as soon as we finished eating, our plates were whisked away. The ambiance was very welcoming, we sat along the bar which I found a bit strange to begin with but it actually worked really well and you felt that you were in your own little cocoon.
I would highly recommend Oggi and I will be booking my Christmas function here pronto!
Amazing customer service! This place has incredible food at a reasonable cost. I loved the concept and the desserts!
Expensive for the size of meals. Some good service some poor service.
First time for two couples we were with. Did not disappoint after our excitement to take our friends there. Delicious every time. Excellent service
Delicious food great cocktails and wine and service ✔️
Service excellent food very good the price was certainly in the higher bracket
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Overall a wonderful experience!
Third time back. Gets better every time.
Amazing service. Helpful, friendly and informative staff. All of them. Not just who is assigned to table. Special shout out to Rodriguez... thank you.
Food... Perfect. Had to re-order favourites. It's that good. Kitchen graciously obliged. Seriously we have not had a bad dish here yet and struggle to pick one favourite. It's all yum.
Wine. Great choices and good knowledge from staff. Enthusiastic oenophiles.
Atmosphere lovely. Feels homely and classy at same time. Genius.
It's been a big year for restaurants this year (50th and wedding) thus far... Chin Chin, Grossi Florentino, Movida, Orso, Embla, Tonka, Lucy Liu, Gazi and it is easy to say that the best was Osteria Oggi ... (Orso & Tonka both equal 2nd).
It is so nice to have a restaurant that consistently delivers on food and service everytime.
It's our go to for special occassions for its outstanding service and it happens to be in Adelaide our home town. Winner.
Special mention dishes:
Squid ink spaghetti
Cuca anchovy soldiers
Rabbit ragu pappardelle
Thank you to all the staff at Osteria Oggi for your outstanding service. We will be back and can't wait to do so.
