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.

My wife and I had an absolutely AMAZING long lunch there!
They looked after us from start to finish brilliantly.
The food was beautiful, the staff attentive, knowledgeable and friendly, and the overall feeling of the place was great!
We had such a wonderful time we loved it and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough!!!!

We regularly revisit Oggi for dinner or lunch and never have been disappointed. Wonderful food and wine menu and fun and excellent staff. Can’t wait to go back. Oggi Osteria is an Adelaide must.

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.

Didn't get to eat as the staff were not flexible with dietary requirements of the group. If I could give 0 stars I would.

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.

Went here for me one year anniversary dinner and it was fantastic. I’m not a really big fan of olive, but overall the food were good and I loved the atmosphere.

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...

We have always had excellent service and never had a poor experience at Oggi. On that basis we took our interstate friends there. The wait person was very slow and verging on rude. So disappointing. The opposite experience to that which we have had on every other occasion. I do hope that was an aberration, but I will be hesitant to recommend Oggi again

A very warm & welcoming greeting on arrival. Ushered to very comfortable dining area. Attentive & friendly staff who were more than happy to explain the menu & "de-code "the dishes. Extensive menu & wine list of local & international wines. My friends (from Sydney & Italy) & I will certainly be recommending Osteria Oggi :the food was outstanding , accompanied by excellent wine .A great experience !

Fabulous food flavours. The white wine ( fiano) we chose was perfect for the pasta and entrees. Service was impeccable. Our waitress Emma was outstanding. Can’t wait to return to Adelaide to eat there again.

Dined at Osteria yesterday evening the service was good and the ambience was lovely. We opted for the feed me option unfortunately the pasta was undercooked and one of our courses was taken to the wrong table so we waited a while. Haven’t dined in the past and it was better.

Food is fantastic no doubt, but service might be a little slow as the crowd is overwhelming. Indeed proving that this is really a good place for Italian food.

However the staffs are wonderful.

This was a pleasant experience though a little noisy, if your after an intimate setting definitely not the place to go. Overall the food was good we both enjoyed our entries. My husband main was great the pasta perfect however my main was disappointing I ordered squid ink pasta with prawns and chilli. Flavour was fine but pasta was thick and heavy and prawns were cut into pea sized pieces (very few of them) and therefore overcooked.

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.
