La Tombola is one of my favourite restaurants to eat at in Adelaide. It's worth it for the service alone - honestly, its flawless! But the food is always SO good. I will continue to keep coming back - keep up the amazing work, guys!

We had amazing food here at La Tombola. The service by Tony was excellent. The seafood was so fresh and plentiful and my husbands pork ribs fell off the bone. We would definitely eat here again.
