Farina 00 Pasta & Wine has hit Adelaide’s Italian scene with a big shot of authenticity and style, characteristics found not just in the food but the vibe, atmosphere and design of this new spot in Hyde Park. As the name suggests, Farina 00 does two things very well, using prized Stagioni 5 ‘00’ flour imported from Italy to make fresh every day and arming themselves with a good showing from South Australian and southern Italian wines. Everything from the arancini di agnello to rich homemade tomato pasta sauce and an addictive Nutella semifreddo shows an acute understanding of traditional Italian techniques. Farina 00 is on King William Street, not far from both Goodwood and Millswood stations – reserve ahead.
Adelaide’s Italian dining scene might not be as well known as those of Lygon Street in Melbourne or Norton Street in Sydney, but down in Goodwood, they have a restaurant that is the equal of anything in Carlton or Leichhardt. Farina 00 Pasta & Wine specialise in, well, pasta and wine, two of the key elements of Italian cuisine, and they use only the finest ingredients to make the most of both of them. They exclusively use Stagioni 5 ‘00’ flour – the best there is – as well as imported Italian tomatoes, cheese and plenty more. Take a trip to King William Street in Goodwood and let them show you the best.
The best Italian cuisine requires time and effort, and at Farina, they really let their ingredients do the talking. Their pappardelle is accompanied by 8 hour roasted rabbit in marjoram and hazelnuts, their lamb is also long braised and comes in a house tomato sauce with 24-month aged parmesan and their casarecce included smoked pancetta, crack black pepper and eggs. In short, if you’re after some of the best Italian food in Adelaide, then you need to be at Farina on King William Street in Goodwood. Book now.
We all enjoyed our meals and knew that pasta and ingredients were like mamas home cooking - yum 😋 Service was good and cheerful - we will be back!
Real Italian Pizza and Pasta. amazing service. There is no way to not like this place.Just little bit slow in giving service and that's all.
What a delight! An inviting room but a bit noisy when it got busy. Excellent “modern” Italian food. We three had truffle infused arincini balls, the peach/mozzarella salad, crab pasta- lots of crab and very filling....and rabbit pasta......subtle flavours but not much rabbit. The dessert of tiramisu was simply perfect.....light as a feather. Of course we’ll tell our friends and be back!
