On a wintery Sunday afternoon four of us had a late lunch. We ordered seafood platters for four - two separate plates arrived with prawns, barra, calamari, lobster and soft shell crab - fries and potatoes. Washed down with a bottle of Pikes Riesling - a lovely lunch indeed.

The owner is a very friendly Italian guy who if you engage will give you a lesson in Italian for free!

Very attentive staff and a lovely place.

All up a bit over $200.

Give it a go - its one of the best in The Bay

This is my third visit to Cardone's in a month and once again service and food were faultless. This is a family owned and run business and it shows from the moment you enter the restaurant.
We were warmly greeted and shown to our table and presented with our menus. Previously I had eaten here mid-week and had chosen from their specials menu. However on the weekend you can only order from the A' la carte menu which was fine as there are a variety of choices.
We started with a shared plate of bread with olive oil and balsamic dipping sauce. My husband ordered the Pan Fried Potato Gnocchi, Braised Beef Cheek, Leek, Carrot, Shallot & Tomato Ragu. Our dear friend had the Seafood soup and I had a dozen oysters done three ways.
Normally my request would not have been accommodated during a busy service but fortunately they were not too busy so my request was granted.
All meals were delivered in a timely manner and were presented beautifully. The portions were generous and the prices were reasonable. The meals were enjoyed by all and the excellent service continued throughout our meal.
Thankyou Nick and staff for such an enjoyable experience an we will definitely be back! It is so nice to finely find an excellent establishment to eat at Glenelg.

Looking for great food, a local foodie recommended Cardone's. We were not disappointed. We did not have a reservation (stopped in, off season, mid week) but would recommend if you can. Fantastic service, delicious food and would highly recommend. Noticed that food is expensive in Australia, but quantity is great. Should not have ordered the appetizer AND main as it was more than we could finish. We were hungry though. Quality of food, outstanding. Prepared very nicely and delicious. Service was top notch. Not many "excellent" choices in Glenelg, but this is one excellent restaurant. Must stop.

After a very long drive we finally reached Adelaide. Phoned and actually got a table! The waitresses that greeted us were very friendly and courteous. This was followed by some swift ordering of hot and crispy crust garlic bread . To follow were starters of grilled prawn and calamari , all very fresh.
The pasta that followed was very good and home made, with a side order of radicchio walnut and prosciutto , pear and Parmesan salad . The seafood risotto was made fresh from the start , so the grains were still properly al dente. Large servings and excellent staff made our first Adelaide dinning experience a great success. 9/10
