An Italian restaurant on Rundle Street, in a corner of Adelaide’s city centre out towards the University of Adelaide campus, Piatto Ristorante Cafe offers a menu that takes in all the best elements of Italian cuisine. They’re open 8am everyday, serving a generous breakfast of Aussie favourites, and then later in the day they move onto lunch and dinner, where their pasta, pizza and main courses are the stars of the show.
The restaurant was clean and the staff were friendly. I was mostly disappointed because i have a favourite dish from the Pizza menu and online it showed it was available, but in store the menu had changed.
Nice pollo pasta, very tasty. Disappointed by no split bills- very inconvenient for the customer- considered leaving the restaurant upon arriving after seeing this hand written sign stuck to the front counter. One person at my table specifically checked with the waitress when ordering that her meal did not contain capsicum (as she has an allergy to this). She was assured the salad did not have capsicum and when her meal came out, the salad was full of capsicum.
Piatto Ristorante Cafe in the city centre of Adelaide is exactly what it sounds like. They offer both an authentic Italian restaurant menu and a proper Aussie cafe at their location on Rundle Street – if you head in the morning, you can get yourself a breakfast of eggs Benedict or smashed avocado, or even an Italian-style beginning to your day in the form of Neapolitan baked eggs, cooked in bread and served with a cheese and tomato sauce. Lunches include focaccia sandwiches and sharing plates, such as antipasti or garlic bread.
The mains at Piatto Ristorante Cafe are an all-Italian affair. Pasta, gnocchi and risotto are of course present on the menu, and there is a huge pizza selection that covers all the traditional bases, so to speak. Other mains available at this Adelaide city centre restaurant on Rundle Street include steaks, chicken parmigiana and schnitzel, so you can be sure of finding something to please all of your party.
