We both had pasta vongole on a Saturday night. We had not made a booking and place was very busy so we were happy to sit at bench and watch chefs at work. I think our pasta was tasty but very measured and I am not sure that I agree with previous reviews of size generosity. Although our dish was delicious the size of meal was not generous and a little on expensive side too. Overall good food but slightly overpriced. Perhaps service was a little too attentive just bordering on interfering.

We tried Borsa for lunch and when we entered the music was so loud from wall-mounted speakers that we couldn't hear the waitress even though there was only one other table seated. We asked if it could be turned down and the waitress said she would. When she came to the table to take our order, or so we think as we could not hear what she said or each other across a very small table, we asked again that it be turned down, She went away and it was turned up! So we left. No hardship as the menu looked lousy anyway. Obviously they only want people who destroyed their hearing with iPod earbuds at a young age. Anyone else can just leave. We went to another nearby Italian restaurant that was full while Borsa had one table of two. There are many excellent Italian restaurants in Adelaide. Don't waste your time and money with people like this.

If you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the office and work in the CBD and only have an hour to do it, you need to head to Borsa Pasta Cucina in Grenfell Plaza ( aka The Black Stump) From the minute you walk in the door you are greeted as if you have just entered the lounge of an old friend. Then there is the food... From the Veal Saltimbocca (heavenly) to the simple Italian salad that comes complimentary with some dishes, you will be in culinary heaven. This simply is the best Italian restaurant I have been to and I have been to a few! The bread on arrival is baked on the premises and gives you an indication of the quality that is to follow. The olive oil here evne tastes better! Whatever it is they are doing in this kitchen and on the dining room floor, they just need to keep doing and the fans will continue to come.

Wow can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. The food is fresh and consistently delicious. Have now dined on a number of occasions with friends and family, and we have all returned. We have almost worked our way through the menu and never been disappointed.
