Chianti Classico


160 Hutt St, Adelaide SA 5000

Chianti Classico offers a fine dining experience; simple, elegant, but without pretension.

The food is Italian.- fresh, seasonal ingredients, that's the key. The flavours and aromas are always sensual and sometimes cerebral.

Luisa Favaro, our mum, together with our head chef Tobias Gush, are our magicians in the kitchen, cooking up traditional dishes from Tuscany and the Veneto area. Together they present these peasant recipes with a modern enthusiasm for simplicity.

Our intention is to treat you like a guest in our home; give you food to savour, along with special treats. For example, when in season, you might experience the famous white truffle from Alba while sipping a glass of Barolo. Naturally there is always homemade pasta. We like local produce and we demand quality, so the fish almost jump onto the table, and the meat is the very best. Desserts are fast becoming our trademark.

There are superb wines from the Barossa, Clare Valley, and McLaren Vale, and the very finest from the Chianti region of Italy. We travel to Italy regularly to seek out forgotten recipes or to hunt down new ideas, but it all comes together here in Adelaide when we share it with you. So call into Chianti Classico some time soon

A cut above the rest. The quality of the food is second to none. The servings are about perfect. The service and the staff's knowledge of their food is exceptional.

It is like dropping into an Italian village restaurant given the warmth of greeting and they never forget you after you have been a couple of times. The food is always terrific but is the service and ambience that makes the place. Maria at front of house is special, but all the other staff are both food and wine knowledgeable. A wonderful place.
