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.

Underwhelming service and food. Forgot our bread... Found myself searching for any meat in my rabbit ragout... after hearing so many great things we were pretty disappointed honestly.

Food was pretty good but the service was average and staff were pretentious. When you pre-book for a special occasion you expect a table, not to be seated at the bar.

Bit too noisy for the old folks here. Food is fine but my pasta dish ( with pork sausage) was heavy on olive oil and lacked distinctive flavour. The entrees were good and reasonable value for money. A 2015 Barolo chosen from a decent wine list was a great accompaniment..but we had to ask for the right red wine glass and for the wine to be decanted. Overall a reasonable place to visit but as in many other restaurants the ambient noise coupled with patrons sitting all around you and the background music create an atmosphere where one has to shout across the table to be heard.

Awesome food and great service - very loud environment but not the fault of the restaurant and unfortunately not unusual down under. Some of the best pasta I’ve ever had.

We had an amazing night from the moment we entered until we left. The food was absolutely amazing. The staff all super friendly. The restaurant was absolutely packed and our food was still delivered in a super quick time. Cannot recommend this place high enough.

The food was sensational as always. Initial service had to be prompted, but we went on a busy Friday night, so that's to be expected. Despite this, the staff were patient when taking our orders, giving suggestions and explaining certain dishes, and the food came out at a good pace.

Could not fault the food it was absolutely delicious and came out within very reasonable timeframes too. staff were friendly, knowledgable and service was good. Venue looks great too. If i was to pick on anything entrees were a bit pricey basically on par with the mains and so to was the wines although there was an excellent selection when you charge $70 for a bottle of rose’ that stopped us ordering a second bottle.

There was no entree list, the wine list was quite basic and price was not realalistic for money for value. It was going to cost us $168 dollars for single x2 main course and bottle of wine. We couldn’t fault the food as we did not stay to order.
We went to another Italian restaurant and spent less and had x3 corse meal plus wine and garlic bread 10/10 for them

Lovely, lovely food. Service can be a bit variable, and the shared tables can be a bit of a lottery, but the food keeps me coming back.

A favourite when I’m in Adelaide. Great food and Italian wines. My waitress was absolutely charming with a good knowledge of the food and wine. The rabbit pasta was brilliant. Highly recommended.

Food was lovely but the service was a bit hit and miss. Our server couldn't use a waiters friend to open the wine and would not let us assist. Ended up being bits of cork and plastic in the wine (and at $60 a bottle not ideal). She was apologetic which helped. Also was a hot night and no ice bucket for the wine was provided, resulted in warm wine towards end of the bottle. It was also raining and the roof was leaking quite heavily which resulted in very wet floors. It was an experience!

John's service with a smile was friendly and welcoming, he was attentive and professional. The food was amazing, as ever, the special pointing out of fire effected suppliers a lovely community touch. A massive shout out to all the staff that managed an the new and unexpected water feature and resultant flood with such aplomb that most of us didn't even notice. Kudos to you all.

We had the $75 degustation with 5 courses. Was a wonderful experience and the chef was more than accommodating with food allergies etc. would have it again. Service was excellent and a beautiful space to eat.

We love this place. Staff welcoming and friendly as well as knowledgable about both the food and drink menu. It was my partners birthday and they made it a special occasion! The food is delicious, would recommend the carpaccio dishes to start. Nice selection of wine and a cool ambience. One of our favourite restaurants in Adelaide.

Loved our dining experience, however we ordered the 5 course tasting menu and didn't receive any meat other than fish. I don't think this is a common thing and maybe an oversight on the night (waiter seemed suprised). My husband was delighted however I don't eat seafood so had to indulge in the vegetarian options that accompanied the fish which was still absolutely delicious.
Will definately be back, but will ensure meat is on the menu too!!

When your least favourite dish of the 5 course meal is still amazing, you know you have found a great restaurant. Well done to the team at Osteria Oggi, perfect!

Food was very good . Service prompt and efficient. We found the lighting to be a bit dull which we found slightly off putting but a great food experience with service to match
