Ruby Red Flamingo does inventive Italian in offbeat surrounds
What works brilliantly here is the outdoor terrace area, complete with chuckling fountain and winking fairy lights, which capitalises on Adelaide’s divine summer clime. On a balmy January evening, there are few more pleasant places to sit and sip. Inside the heritage stone former-manse the vibe is eclectic and ‘pop-up’, with quirky murals, mismatched ceramicware and informal staff ’tude. Pasta is the main game – don’t bypass the rabbit ragù pappardelle – complemented by big- and small-plate offerings built to share (pork and fennel sausage, calamari arancini balls). The mood is buoyant, upbeat and highly social. Bookings are available only for groups of eight or more.
