‘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.
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.
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.
Great food, service is a bit slow. Hard to get someone’s attention to order. The cocktail/ beer list is separate and had to be asked for? Could be included with the wine list.
Food is excellent, interior is exceptional. A little let down by slow service
Not the warmest welcome received when we got there but waiter became more engaging after we ordered the tasting menu and it was turning out to be a good night; food was great. Then it all went downhill when we asked for plates to share the 2 desserts between 4 people! Waiter clearly wasn’t pleased with us and didn’t even ask for coffee orders or thank us for our custom when we left. Poor effort for a $430 bill. I guess repeat customers are not that important.
We had an amazing night celebrating an important milestone. They were so welcoming and so lovely to our 2 young kids. Food was absolutely delicious. Thank you so much for a lovely evening 😊
First visit a year ago was amazing.... but not this time and wont be going back.
Staff all seemed preoccupied even though it wasnt that busy which was odd....asked for still water and got sparkling, gin recommendation and waitress just looked at me blankly then when I asked for no chilli on my meal, it came out with alot of chilli. No one checked on how we were going or offered pepper etc and when it came time for a coffee at the end of the meal they dont have soy milk (im lactose intolerant ). So all in all not good and incredibly loud, try to get a booth of you want to have a conversation.
Our waiter wasn’t particularly interested in being there and had an abrupt manner. Entrees of beef carpaccio, kingfish crudo were excellent and snapper and vongole main course and eggplant pasta were delicious. The pork loin was a bit on the underdone side and was chewy and the casarecce leek pasta was too oily.
The food at Osteria is always exquisite.
However, our overall experience was quite disappointing. Upon entering the restaurant, the host yelled loudly and unprofessionally across the restaurant to greet us and ask if we had a booking. After sitting us at our table we were asked if we would like water I and asked if we could have tap water. He returned and provided us Purezza tap water which was fine as I was under the impression that tap water would be free (at no point was I advised that it wouldn't be).
Our waitress was quite pleasant and helpful. We ordered a glass of wine each and 2 pasta dishes which was all we felt like. We were then brought bread (we did not order) which again was under the impression was complimentary (again, at no point were we told otherwise).
Our food came and to was stunning, the food is always amazing at Osteria Oggi, the serving size does not quite align with what I would consider "value" considering the price and it is at the end of the day, pasta (as delicious as it is). However, this was not an issue because not being our first time, understood what we were getting in to.
I received bill and noticed that we had been charged for the water and bread which was disappointing. Being charged $6 for tap water is excessive even if it a "premium" type of tap water. I don't consider myself a cheap person and was happy to pay but it would have been nice to be given a heads up.
Lastly, on the way while walking out one of the staff seemed to be in a rush and stepped in front of my partner and cut her off without any apology, another blew past myself to which I thought perhaps he was going to get the door for us but just continued to walk on by. This was at 6:30 pm on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was hardly busy at this stage.
Overall, it was a disappointing experience. I know $100 on dinner for two may not be much. BUT when it was on water, 2 glasses of wine, bread and 2 pasta dishes, coupled with poor service, it's disappointing.
Outstanding food, service ambience. This place has never disappointed.
Absolutely delightful. Great food and excellent service.
Great. Good service, cheerful friendly upbeat sassy.
Their food was so authentic and delicious indeed. The vibe in the restaurant was so energetic and fun enough. Highly recommend.
Staff Friendly when we arrived. This was my 3rd visit and brought people along, the food was good, waiter seemed to be having a bad day which happens sometimes. The Wine list was not overs, probably like to see more moderate wines on the list. Will probably give it another go back but not in a hurry.
Welcoming and warm service, seated quickly and presented with menus and drinks list upon seating. Attentive service but not over-attentive, we were suitably left to enjoy our meals and experience. Food was very fresh and enjoyable, though on the more ‘pricy’ side, but certainly an enjoyable experience overall!
The food was excellent, great ambience and we enjoyed our time! Service was great too, thanks for a great experience.
Delicious food, as always, paired with excellent service and an exciting wine list!
I don’t even know where to start with this amazing Italian masterpiece. The ambience, the service, oh and the food, stop it! It’s one of those places that you go and it’s an experience, it’s fun, it’s vibrant and the chefs do some of the best pasta I’ve ever eaten. I cannot give enough praise to the team for what a fantastic experience it was at Osteria Oggi! Coming from Melbourne I’m spoilt for choice but this would knock over any of those choices without a doubt!! Brilliant
Beautiful food, service and surrounds... and slightly louder acoustics due to the nature of the space.
Crab tagliatelle was amazing as was the duck ragu gnocchi.
Wait staff have good knowledge of both food and wine.
Shame you don't stock soy or almond milk for coffee or even skim milk.
Asked for Earl Grey tea and got regular tea.
Apart from that enjoyed a beautiful meal
Whilst all of our dishes (finally) were very tasty, initially a wrong dish was brought to me to begin with and had to wait for 15 minutes for my (correct) dish to come out whilst the rest of the group were eating - not a great experience! We had to ask for Chili Oil & Parmesan cheese to be brought to out table 3 times before it finally arrived. Whilst the restaurant was very busy I understand that there are things that sometimes can go wrong and will give the benefit of the doubt and will revisit to hopefully have a better (overall) experience.
Only our second visit but again we enjoyed the food and experience once again. Our waiter was helpful with explaining the menu and being there just when he was needed. The food was excellent, we had the anchovy fingers - crispy and tasty; it was great to try the tripe - the tomato sauce went well with the tender tripe; the squid ink pasta with vongole and prawns had an excellent balance of flavours; the smoked eel pasta was something different to try, again a good balance of flavoured and no bones.
We'll be back.
Great night catching up with old friends. Fabulous food, service and wine. Thankfully we were seated in a booth which helped enormously with the noise level and overall comfort. Would definitely recommend.
We had a great experience at Oggi, it came recommended to us and dud bit disappoint! The parmesan flan was sublime and the tagliatelle was heaven.
Excellent service and the food was outstanding! Would recommend
The food was absolutely amazing and the atmosphere was delightful. The waiter we had was very good and helped us choose our food and wine to match. Unfortunately, the other staff at the venue felt quite arrogant and in a rush.
Amazing food & service. Everything perfect as usual @ Oggi!!
Excellent service. Staff advised before we turned up that they didn't have high chairs but they'd sit us somewhere that a pram could be accommodated.
Drinks prices were silly. Local beers were $12. No wine available at a reasonable price. $70 bottles for lunch with a pasta dish is ridiculous. Even with the food being very good I will not return as you can not enjoy a wine with the meal.
Great group dinners, work dinners or first dates. Beautiful setting, modern music at the right sound level, great service (attentive when needed), and gorgeous food
Been a few times for personal and business. Always impressed. Likewise with my Sydney colleagues
Love it. One of my most favourite restaurants in Adelaide.
I wrote a review on Zomato. We particularly enjoyed the food and non intrusive but knowledgeable service. We will be back soon.
Great atmosphere. Great vibe. Food was amazing and attention to detail was spot on. Did get a bit noisy but was lunchtime. Maybe dinner’s better for a date.
Delicious...we all enjoyed every dish. Seafood, blood orange, fennel, amazing winter flavours blended perfectly.
