I never write reviews, but considering how well the service and food was I felt like I needed to let people know. The pizzas was puffy and delicious. the cocktails was amazing. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating to us as well. It was a really nice night See less

super disappointed in this restaurant. was super excited to eat here but ended up leaving without one of our meals. ordered the “special” carbonara which ended up being 80% pepper and 20% pasta and sauce, was super overpowering couldn’t taste anything but pepper. when we told the extremely rude waitress about it she just snatched the food away, said “oh okay” and walked off without a solution. When we asked if we were gonna get another plate of it remade dish again the waitress just walked off and never came back. for someone who works in the hospitality industry there customers service was a -10 See less

I don’t usually write reviews for restaurants, but I thought it worthwhile to share my disappointing experience at Italy. We came on Good Friday and ordered an entrée, a pasta dish, and a dessert to be shared by two people. The portion sizes were decent, but the food was quite average for the price we payed for it. The pesto sauce that was served with the pasta was salty and lacking in flavour, and tasted like it came out of a jar. I won’t go on about the food because that wasn’t even the worst part. After we received our bill we noticed that we were charged more than expected (including a $1 card surcharge when I don’t believe they even accepted cash). When we disputed the amount we were charged, we were told that there was an additional surcharge for public holidays. Though we didn’t notice, it did indeed state at the bottom of the menu that there was a 10% surcharge. We had no problem with this, BUT for no reason in particular, they increased the additional charge to 15%. They argued that there was simply nothing that could have been done about it. I know it’s only a small increase, but I do NOT appreciate the dishonestly. All we could have asked for is for transparency, and that the prices and surcharges were clearly stated before we payed. My partner and I will not be back. Edit - I am grateful for those who work on public holidays and I understand the need for surcharges. I just think it’s not too much to ask for staff to be upfront about exactly how much extra we are paying. (And I know what good pesto tastes like, and this was not it!) See less

This place is difficult to rate based on our recent experience. The service was lacking, we spent a good deal of our night waiting for servers to notice us and having to call them over to place orders. It was not particularly busy being a week night. When we could get attention servers were polite and friendly. One pasta dish came out and 20 minutes later the other 3 had still not come (2 more pasta and one pizza) which was apparently a failure of their ordering system and wifi. Not sure how one meal from an order gets sent but not the rest, if this is possible they clearly need a new system! At least the food was very nice when we eventually got it. See less

Great authentic Italian food. Been there a couple of times recently and it's as good as ever. Get in early for dinner during Fringe as it gets very busy after 6pm. If unsure, get a pizza! See less

Terrible service, waited more than an hour for our food to then only receive part of our order and be told that they never prepared the rest of it. The drink that I ordered (Aperol Spritz) was not at all what I ordered, it was pretty much water with lemon. Then one of the staff members had the audacity to make a joke and laugh at the fact that we were the only customers that were still eating, which wouldn’t have been the case if we didn’t have to wait more than one hour for our food. The pizza was not hot when it arrived to our table. Not very professional, would not recommend. Plenty of other great restaurants on Rundle Street, do not waste your time and money at Italy! See less

Really good service and wine to choose from. We tried margarita pizza to start, then the Linguine Granchio and Saltimbocca veal for main. Cooked to perfection. Amazing flavour. Reasonable prices. We will be back! Thanks for a delicious meal. See less

Coming from Victoria and expecting a beautiful new year eve was ruined by an Isabella who called herself the manager of the restaurant. We were 2 families but she refused to give us separate bills!!!! It is something easy that all of the restaurants do. And when we insisted, she spoke impolitely. It was ashaming to behave the costumer like that.That,is why this restaurant had just a few costumers while the others were full See less

We have been to countless Italian restaurant around the world... And Italy Cafe Ristorante was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! The pizza was great, the carbonara as authentic as you can get and don't let me tell you about the Tiramisu and the wine... The Cherry on the cake was the service: fantastic... do yourself a favour and go there! See less

The restaurant was not what I would consider to be truly authentic Italian but Isabella the manager was great, she made our table laugh and provided great service throughout the evening. When we weren’t happy about the food she offered us a Calabrian shot of liquor on the house - If I had a restaurant I’d definitely steal her. Italy has so much potential to be great! The atmosphere is gorgeous. See less

Compared to other authentic Napoletana style pizzas across Adelaide, I was very disappointed. I always start with a Margherita, as this highlights the quality of the ingredients and cooking method. It was over cooked and dry, lacked sufficient sugo, and had almost no basil at all. The other pizzas I tried were better, however I don’t understand how a restaurant can claim to be authentically Italian and include ham and pineapple on the menu. See less

Have to say, food was exceptionally prepared! This is my 3rd time dining in Italy and the first few times I wasn’t really a fan. This time around, my pork cutlet was cooked to perfection. Burrata & Garlic bread were divine. Service was on-point! Cocktails were superb too! See less

We had a booking here on a Friday night, was full inside (downstairs) and had a good atmosphere. The waiters who served us were all very polite and had a laugh with us and our pronunciation on some of the items. The food was nice but I thought it was a bit disappointing that they don't maka their own pasta... it's an Italian restaurant which mainly serves pizza and pasta so you works think they would focus on this. The drinks (wine, beer, softdrinks) are all from Italy which was a nice touch, but we dont know much about Italian red wine so we're at the mercy of the staff. See less
