Fantastic food, really delicious, and good old school service. We will definitely be back. We had spaghetti carbonara and seafood marinara both were excellent, tiramisu and panacotta were both excellent too.

We have been to Parlamento before and always been very happy. Last week however we were very disappointed with the service. The food was (and always has been) amazing and we were going to a show at Festival Theatre so they knew we had limited...time to order and eat. After the waiter took our order for our first drink he basically ignored us. We had to call him over to 1) order our food 2) order a second drink 3) ask for table water 4) ask for our bill and 5) then leave our table to ask for our bill again as he 'forgot'. He was wandering around the restaurant and kitchen with no sense of urgency as the other waiters were. When we are paying top dollar at a restaurant we expect top service!More

This restaurant gave us everything we expect from a great Italian restaurant. Warm welcoming service, a great drinks range and delicious food. I loved the limoncello berry cocktail. We had the conchiglioni and pappardello with ragu and finished with the tiramisu and pannacotta. Fantastic! Make...sure you book.More

Always great food, great service and great prices. A group of 8 went, the front of house remembered us from a year before! Generous serves, everyone had different dishes but every dish was superb. Sometimes living in Adelaide you forget the established and the best....Perfect score.More

Visited as close to accommodation. Very good Italian food with a variety of dishes. Very friendly staff and not too expensive. Went back for an antipasto lunch which we enjoyed as well. Recommended.

Wonderful place to eat (and drink). Meals are generous and delicious and service is friendly and efficient. I particularly enjoyed the “parlamento Shiraz”

One night in Adelaide and we wanted a great Adelaide Italian restaurant. Previously eaten at Chianti and would have gone there again but we were not inspired by their ‘post-COVID’ menu. Chose Parlamento for the reviews, a menu that gave us lots of options and...the fact it had been operating for a while. Arrived at 6pm on Friday to a packed restaurant with the only table for two we could see being right by the door. Oh oh… fortunately they had a table reserved to the side of the room away from the door and kitchen frenzy. Menu was per online with a couple of daily specials. I ordered the Filetto de Manzo from the menu and my partner the daily fish special - grilled snapper with capsicum and herbs. We added a rocket and pear salad and the daily wine special. All at good prices. Wine and bread came quickly - bread was a soft white that tasted / looked grocery store bought. The mains were delivered in reasonable time despite the packed room but our waiter forgot to order the accompanying salad. He immediately resolved that by delivering the salad and not charging us for it. My steak was a good sized portion, cooked as requested and accompanied by sautéed carrots and spinach. It was perfectly acceptable but not inspiring and I wouldn’t order it again. My partner’s fish was not well received. The accompanying red and yellow capsicum was sautéed with dill, sumac, cherry tomatoes, coriander and red onion. This combination of flavours did not work together at all and completely overwhelmed the fish. The fish itself was soggy and overcooked. Additionally, the fish was not boned probably and my partner pulled more than a dozen bones from the fish before giving up and leaving the rest. No coffee / dessert. Given the multitude of positive reviews we expected better and hopefully this was a one-off for Parlamento. Lesson for us was if you’re going to an Italian restaurant, order the pasta or pizza. $115 all up for the dinner with wine.More

I made a reservation for a very large group dinner only a few days in advance and the booking was received without problem. Excellent friendly service all night, the food was great, and the wine selection of SA wines was also a welcome sight, and...thoroughly enjoyed. Highly recommended!!More

I have been to this restaurant most times I come to Adelaide. It never disappoints. The staff particularly Leanne and Danny are very friendly and helpful. Both have been there more than 20 years. We shared a starter, then my wife had the spaghetti marinara...and I had the veal saltimbocca. We finished off with affogato's. Great quality of food and as always large portions. Highly recommend this traditional Italian restaurant but you must book.More
