Stopped here for a business lunch. Many very tasty hot and cold options, with friendly staff. Reasonably priced too. Fresh ingredients used. I would recommend this place.

Again, why nothing offered between "average" and "very good"??! Because that's what this place is. It's not gourmet, but if you don't feel like cooking and don't want to spend a load of money, this place is as good as anywhere in the area. Decently-priced wine available too. it's always pretty buzzing.

We love this place for its good quality food, friendly and efficient service. It feels like a cafe in Milan or similar, with tables full of people laughing and enjoying life. The service and food delivery are super quick. It's often very full but worth waiting for a table.

It can be near impossible to eat in Adelaide after 9pm at night, sad but true. Buongiornos is the exception. So if you have been to a show and want to eat this is the place. The pasta is good, pizza, and a choice of desserts. It is a busy bustling place, with good heaters outside and plastic blinds, so... More

Phoned ahead to see what time the kitchen closed, we were advised 11pm and said we'd be there around 10.30pm. We were told by the waitress to order quick, food came out not long after ordering however we were disappointed that the staff began to pack up the tables and chairs right on 11pm whilst we were still eating. The... More

Visited with wife and son on Saturday early evening....it was one of the few restaurants in the area packed and rightly so. They have the formula correct. Caring service,value for money, pay up front...no tipping required. I really enjoyed the food and the vibe of being busy yet not crammed in. Would go back again.

been here for pizza many many times, washed it down with a red wine, at times the pizza is superb, but then another times, the dough is raw and tasteless, which there is more consistency in the pizza maker.
