I only discovered this restaurant a couple of weeks ago as my friend had moved into King William Street. I LOVE IT !!! True Italian food, true Italian atmosphere. I had spaghetti marinara, A dish I love but had not had for ages, well it was magnificent. Had sweets and affogato. Professional male waiters who know where you are sitting... More

Affectionately know as La Trat this truly good real Italian eatery has been there for years - decor is dated (but who cares) - always busy - day and night. Also has outdoor seating on footpath - protected and heated during cooler months. Pasta dishes of all sorts-a favourite being the Marinara (seafood) and the black olive & anchovy, gnocchi... More

Great atmosphere and a busy restaurant. We arrived at 19:10 and the place was very, very busy. However, they are more than accommodating in trying to find you a table. At some point there were ten people waiting. We both had Scallopina which was very tasty, very plentiful and delicious. Their house wine was excellent

Rescued by the attentive staff from misbehaving noisy screaming high-chair occupant to a cosy corner. Garlic bread, Garden salad to standard. Hubby had chef special pizza, better than good, I had pasta with prawns (cause i like prawn anything) was delicious. Comprehensive drinks menu. We loved it! Thanks 🙏

We have dined at 'La Tratt' twice in the past week, each time with different friends. The team at this long established Adelaide food icon continue to provide good service, in good humour [mostly], day in and day out. In a city with the sheer number and quality of cafes & restaurants as Adelaide, anyone who can stay in business... More

I was there on a Sunday evening and the place was packed. It has a real family run feel to the place. I was a little disappointed with the bruschetta but the gnocchi and tiramisu was very nice. It might be down to how busy they were but it felt to me that they were a bit short staffed as... More

We rang and booked this restaurant on the advice of this forum and are glad we did. The place was humming. We had the polo, bruschetta and prawns all washed down with a nice Italian red wine and we loved it all. Tiramisu to be shared and a glass of port each rounded out the meal nicely. Awesome experience and... More

I cannot give a more glowing review of this restaurant. The staff are as authentic as their delicious cuisine and there is a reason why they have an award winning pizza on their menu...but don't just stop there, the pasta is fantastic as well, cooked perfectly with just enough sauce and they're not shy with the toppings on the pizza...

We went to La Trattoria on the recommendation of a local from Adelaide as we couldn't find much open on Sunday evening. We called for a 7:30pm reservation that night, which turned out to be a great idea. The place was packed when we got there and filled with large groups, mostly local families out for a weekend night of... More
