The food here is consistently exquisite. The filletto di Manzo is absolutely the best. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! For steak, I would not go anywhere else in Adelaide. The dessert, Tiramisu or the gelati trio, was simple but delicious.The service leaves...More

La Tombola is one of my favourite restaurants to eat at in Adelaide. It's worth it for the service alone - honestly, its flawless! But the food is always SO good. I will continue to keep coming back - keep up the amazing work, guys!

Service and food excellent as always. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals. My spaghetti marinara was one of the best I have ever tasted, fresh plentiful seafood with spaghetti cooked perfectly. Jamie Oliver's restaurant could learn a lot from Tony and his team!! Two...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Do not want to know anything just to add a comment, that I am currently arranging a small group for engagement dinner, the promptness of notifying me of my booking enquiry was appreciated. When I phoned, Tony answered, I was thrown by his friendly disposition and his patience with my query. Such manners and old fashioned service, very hard to come by in this day and age. I got off the phone and said to my husband my goodness someone wanting to 'bend over backwards', to help me with my booking. Looking forward to our up coming event.

I know it's not a question but they gave me a space to write in so: What you said! 😀
I have two photos to add to my review of La Tombola. How do I add them?
