I have been to Ambrosini's a few times now, but not enough. Last night we went there for.a special occasion and, as usual, just loved the place. From the venue, the location, the family(who have owned Ambosini's for over 30 years) and of course the...food, this restaurant is just faultless. The service from all of the family makes you feel just that. Family. The food is my favourite Italian in Adelaide. The decor and ambience is just wonderful. As can be imagined, we fully endorse Ambrosin's and suggest it is "top of list" for others, locals and those from far away. Well done to all there. A truly terrific experience.More

Being a Friday night so close to Christmas, the restaurant was fully and lively. Service was friendly and prompt. We orders 2 plates of spagetti marina to share as entree. It was very tasty. The veal scallopini was the best I have tasted in a...long time. Definitely will return.More

Ambrosini's is a restaurant that has been consistently good for many years but often forgotten about. We dined with friends and none of the good old fashioned professional service and delicious Italian food has changed. Good to know some things continue to be good.

We were here on a Wednesday night for a very special celebration. I confess to having high expectations based on the reviews, but left slightly disappointed, even though the company was great. We have probably been badly spoilt by Nonna's amazing cooking, but she would...not have been happy with the pasta being overcooked, and the risotto undercooked, nor would the scallopini have quite met her expectations. The biggest problem of all was the noise issue. It felt as if the restaurant was as packed as ever, with tables and adjacent diners who seemed to be seated relatively close to neighbouring tables. I'm sure glad it wasn't a weekend night!More

We were disappointed that you did not enjoy your meal. Noise levels in restaurants are difficult to control with some dining groups creating louder chatter than others accumulating in a loud atmosphere. I can assure you that the amount of patrons seated on any given...More

We don’t live close to Glenelg and so don’t come to the eastern suburbs a lot. My daughter and I were shopping locally for tiles today and stopped at this family restaurant for lunch. The cauliflower and truffle risotto was the best I’ve ever had...and my daughter enjoyed the gnocchi. It was truly delicious with a reasonably priced wine list. Looking for excuses to come across town to enjoy again.More

Mid week business dinner. This restaurant continues a reputation of being one of the very best Italian restaurants in Adelaide, it’s run by a loverly family. The menu is interesting and everything on the menu is sensational. Our group had lots of different dishes the...steaks were tender and cooked exactly as ordered. The wine list is fantastic!! The staff are really good and all have “serious care factor “ Highly recommended Adelaide restaurant.More
