My entree serve of Spaghetti Tutto Mare was substantial & very tasty. The pork special was a huge let down - it had no real taste & the supposed "crackling" that was served up with the dish was straight out of a packet you buy at the supermarket! Very disappointing.I have to say apart from the establishment's pasta & risotto dishes I find their other courses lacking in flavour - which is a shame because the waiters are very friendly & obliging ,the venue is excellent & Paul at front of house is a great ambassador for the Restaurant.

As a very hands on and family run business we strive to provide dishes using the best ingredients and classical cooking methods that require a lot of time and skill in providing full flavoured dishes that are ultimately delivered to the table.
In saying that we are very flexible to customers opinions and reviews without avoiding attention to any criticism and always welcome the opportunity at the time to remedy the customers dissatisfaction.
We do however take personally to criticism that insults our integrity,honesty and our craft.
In an industry where you are constantly in the public eye one is never going to fulfill everybody’s expectations but if it’s done with care and passion, as we strive at Ambrosinis such vilification is unwarranted

I love this restaurant. I am so glad to have come here again and will do so again very soon as the go-to restaurant.
The atmosphere & decor is light, comfortable and classy. The table and chairs roomy. The food is consistently excellent whatever you have on the menu. There is something for everyone. An excellent range of Alcohol on offer. This restaurant has a good loyal following and it is plain to see why.
I thought the prices were very competitive considering how excellent the food is.
I am looking forward to seeing Paul, his brother and the waiting staff again very soon for a dinner next time with daylight saving starting soon.
I highly recommend this restaurant as one of the best in Adelaide.

I love this restaurant, and have been here many times but forgotten to write a review! Authentic Italian cuisine, family run business. Excellent staff, just the right amount of ‘friendly’. Unlike so many restaurants and cafes today, the tables are a decent space apart, so perfect for business, intimate, and family dinners. Very good wine list, including by the glass. Too many restaurants offer best quality wine by the bottle, but fall down on the quality of their by the glass options. Suggest booking in advance, especially if you find you have a preferred space, which you will after you’ve been a few times as we have. But, we’ve also arrived unexpectedly and so far, never been let down unless after 8pm.

Visited Ambrosini's on Saturday night. What a joy. The food selection was great. Authentic italian food. The service was great and not hovering over you but were there when they were needed. They weren't in a hurry to throw us out either. Adelaide is very lucky to have these jewel. Would do very well in Melbourne.

If you want a really special night with all those special small details then this is the place. We were warmly greeted at the door by owner Paul who escorted us to our table in a quiet corner. White tablecloths & napkins, good glassware gave a touch of luxury plus comfortable chairs. Real butter curls & crunchy rolls appeared on the table.
Exciting menu choices plus specials gave us a wide choice - so many wonderful dishes. Service was excellent with wait staff efficient and knowledgeable about the dishes. Everything we ordered was perfect, beautifully presented & generous serves - and tasted as good as it looked. The crumbed brains were a standout!
There were so many other dishes we would like to have tried - we will definitely be back!
