Rigoni's Bistro (CLOSED)

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Rigoni’s was on Leigh Street before Leigh Street was hip. Now they both are
Adelaide, like every Australian capital, has myriad Italian joints. But Rigoni’s sits at the high-water mark, not only for its enduring appeal (since 1956!), but also for its savvy Italian dishes, clued-up staff, sublime SA and Italian wines, and immaculate presentation (serious first date/anniversary terrain). Style-wise, a simple formula of fold-back windows, blackboards, terracotta tiles and white linen applies – an undistracting interior leaving you focussed on your saltimbocca di cervo (grilled venison with sage, prosciutto, braised venison tortellini, chestnut puree, pickled beetroot and juniper jus). Book a seat in the window and watch Leigh Street’s pedestrian circus. They’re open for breakfast, too.
