About Ruby Red Flamingo
For many, proper Italian eating means amazing food along with plenty of good wine, lots of fun, family and friends. If that’s the ideal image of Italian eating, then Ruby Red Flamingo has to be the ideal Italian eatery in Adelaide. It’s a very cool, colourful, cosy space on Tynte Street in North Adelaide and the kitchen – led by talented head chef Enzo – likes to celebrate the seasons and keep things fresh. There is no permanent menu, instead Enzo and his crew take whatever fresh ingredients and new ideas are at hand and produce truly first-rate meals, balancing Italian traditions and modern Australian flair in a way that’s hard to forget.

Ruby Red Flamingo radiates one thing: cool. Cool is in everything this Italian restaurant does – from its approach to food to its bohemian decor – but not in an arrogant way – in an effortless, endearing way. In Adelaide, it’s some mixture of a chic modern bistro and funky family place. There are shelves stacked with carefully-selected, top quality wines, curious pieces of art and an eclectic selection of chairs. Found on Tynte Street in North Adelaide, it really is a wonderful place for group gatherings, special occasions or social events – and we haven’t even got to the food yet!
Unlike anywhere else you are likely to find in Adelaide, the menu is ever changing according to two things: what ingredients are freshest for the time of year, and what the team of expert chefs happen to feel like creating. Ruby Red Flamingo certainly takes a fun approach to food but the results are always the same: Italian dishes that are exquisite and a force to be reckoned with in North Adelaide. There is, however, the constant presence of a hearty Italian banquet menu, fit for groups of ten or more and including some damn fine seafood carpaccio and pasta that can be prepared gluten-free. Ruby Red Flamingo is simply one that you have to try yourself, reserve a table now and go have some fun.
Fabulous lunch. 2 of us shared 2 pasta dishes; the ravioli with beetroot and the mezzo mineche (pasta rings with prawns, pancetta, zucchini, saffron and chilli). Delicious, filling, fragrant, beautiful to look at. A lovely glass of wine, complimentary bread and oil, a lovely coffee and great service; a great way to catch up with a friend.
A group of 9 of us went for a Friday lunch and could not have been happier with the food and service. Staff went out of there way to make us feel comfortable and the share plates of pastas etc. were 'second to none'! thanks so much RRF!! We will be back :)
Great food, and customer service. The food was delicious, and well presented. The waiters were friendly, and attentive. The atmosphere was good, and pretty setting.
We - four adults and one small child - went to Ruby Red Flamingo for a birthday lunch. The service was excellent - friendly and attentive - and the food delicious. Although it was a cold, rainy day and we were sitting in the covered area outside, we were warm as toast. A big plus with this place is that it is quiet - something that is quite rare to find today.
A great Friday lunch as usual. Ricardo & the team at Ruby Red Flamingo again treated us like we were at the family table. Quiet, efficient staff who know what they are doing. The shared plates (the best way to try out the menu) of superb food just kept coming. We will be back in a few weeks to be spoilt once more.
Great Adelaide weather, great outdoor venue, great food. The makings for an excellent gentlemen's lunch. There were five of us to celebrate a mate's birthday. The staff were friendly & efficient. We took our own wine (reasonable corkage charges) though as I recall they do have a a good wine list. The food is meant to be shared & this worked quite well between the five of us. The favourite was the polenta & spinach dish. The waiter was attentive & supplied us with excellent service. I am sure we will be going back soon.
Great food, great atmosphere and lovely surroundings. Ruby Red Flamingo has some fantastic flavours in it's food. Will definitely recommend this restaurant to my family and friends.
Service was great and the guy serving knew his stuff. He knew everything on the menu and his knowledge of the wines was just as amazing . the food was amazingly beautiful. If you can't get in for dinner take a Wednesday off and go at lunch time.
Our first visit and we will definitely be back. Great selection to choose from, staff were friendly and best of all the food was lovely. Plenty more to still try from the menu so just working through the calendar to see when we can book again!!
Great atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff, great selection of food choice and Italian wines. The food is amazing. Highly recommend this funky place for a casual business lunch, catch ups with friends and family and great to bring interstate / overseas friends too as well.
Lunch al fresco on a lovely Spring day. Great food- delicious swordfish carpaccio, the polenta with spinach and cheese and a chicken schnitzel with salad-all lovely. Service prompt and helpful eg a perfect white wine recommended. A very happy dining experience.
Awesone food atmosphere and hospitality. Absolutely love love love this place. Amazing Gluten free options including dessert. Romantic meal, long lunch with the ladies/lads, quick friday office escape or business dining. Their finesse covers it all.
As Usual, a wonderful experience! Great food and service! Authentic Italian food, good portions and a great wine selection. Hidden from the hustle & bustle of O'Connell St- great for big groups or couples.
Cute, quirky little place, very popular even for Wed lunch. Great food! Little dumplings to start were so light and tasty as was all the pasta which is made fresh on site. Service attentive but not annoying. Will be back.
Booked in for a light lunch. Wonderful baked polenta dish and a glass of prosecco and a catch up with a friend. Could not fault the experience. I will be back with others!
Relaxed give with outstanding food, always a pleasure. If you want good Italian with plenty of choice and quality this is your venue, the setting of an old house just tops it off.
We loved it, great food almost an overwhelming choice and excellent service. The wait staff helped with wonderful suggestions for both wine and food. Will go back as many times as possible
Fantastic all round!! Great food and great service!! A lot to chose from off the menu, waiter was exceptional in remembering all our orders (8) of us!! Will definitely go back there!!
Delicious food! lovely staff! Excellent selection of wine! I came in with a very grumpy baby and everyone was so nice and made us so comfortable and even helped entertain her thankyou!
Came here for lunch to meet up with some friends. All of our dishes were absolutely stunning and generous portions. The service was friendly, efficient and excellent! We will be back!
