Osteria Oggi, Adelaide CBD

ADELAIDE | I enjoyed a lovely dinner at the super popular Osteria Oggi recently. So popular, in fact, that they were fully booked on a Monday night. Thankfully, dining solo, I was able to grab a seat at the bar for an hour.
The restaurant, opened by somewhat of a hospitality super team in 2015, offers modern Italian food inspired by tradition and seasonality. The beautiful, award winning fit out, suits this philosophy well. The space simultaneously feels modern and traditional.
I went for items that I felt really reflected Oggi’s philosophy, and was very happy with my choices. The spaghetti carbonara with guanciale, cured egg yolk, and pecorino, is a salty (in a good way), creamy indulgence. Another winner is the “Anchovy Soldiers” – cured anchovy fillet on crunchy toast with capers and extra virgin olive oil.
Also worth trying is the dense but not heavy croquette with scamorza, potato and prosciutto. For dessert, the tiramisu affogato with vanilla cream liqueur, chocolate parfait, and coffee anglaise is an interesting and successful take on the classic.
Oggi is a great option for anyone looking for Italian food in the heart of Adelaide. Just be sure to book ahead if you’re intending to dine during peak times, even if you’re dining solo.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
