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.
Delicious food, excellent service, and on a rather cool winter's day, we were sitting next to a gorgeous open fire - I always enjoy Farina and this visit did not disappoint. I haven't tried the pizza (although my sister did and said it was delicious), but their pasta - super fresh and homemade with a perfect balance of sauce - yum!
This was my second time here. The first time I was not impressed with my pasta dish but wanted to try again since they introduced pizzas to the menu and I am pleased I did. Lovely food, service and a great atmosphere :)
The food was delicious, and the service was excellent. We had the pasta and it was fresh, tasty and well presented. We would highly recommend, and definately return.
