We flew in from Sydney for the weekend and after reading about this place, booked a dinner here for our first night. Well, let me start by saying - the service was terrible to start with. Our order wasn't taken for about 20 minutes even after I waved to the manager to say we were ready to go. And after... More

Dinner for four. 6 o'clock service and how to be out by 8 so sat back and let the food come. As other reviewers noted , it can be a bit noisy but so can we so not an issue. The service is reasonably attentive and the staff certainly have their heads around the menu. Speaking of which, the food... More

If I could eat their swordfish carpaccio for the rest of my life, I would. So so SO good. But then everything there was (aside of disappointing Arrancini balls). I'd be amazed if anyone ate here and didn't like it. I'd return to Adelaide again just to eat here!

Lovely wholesome food. Share a starter. Share a main. The carpaccio of Angus beef was spectacular, as were the arancini balls on polenta. Busy atmosphere. Attentive staff.

Andrea Cucina is a great place for lunch the food is excellent as is the wine list and service. The menu is interesting and full of flavour, loved the white polenta chips and the calamari with squid ink

We had the Menu Fisso option where the chef decides what you will be served. The waitress asked if there were any special dietary requirements and if there was anything we didn't particularly enjoy eating. It was quite noisy in the restaurant so we couldn't always hear the description of what was being served but all courses tasted amazing.

The food and attentive service as well as atmosphere is great at this place. The only thing i could suggest is less salt in beef carpaccio and arranchini otherways fantastic and fresh flavours and we will deffinitely be back.

The food is superb, the service good. I have 2 complaints : it is a little noisy, and if it were a little larger I might be able to get a table with less notice.
