On my first visit to Adelaide, I'd heard about Glenelg and thought I would pay a visit. I did a reconnoiter on a Friday, checked out the Jetty and had a good walk along the beachfront and the Marina. The day I was due to fly out rather than sit at the airport I decided to go back to Glenelg... More

Really poor service. Waited 85 minutes for our food on Mother's Day. The meals came out over a 25 minute period from there. Complained and the manager shouted us a round of drink but no apology and they didn't really care.

Watch the world go by while you sip a wine and wait for your crispy pizza. The last spot at the end of Jetty Road has been a Glenelg Institution for decades. Very good ordering system, good table service and spot on pizzas with an extensive value for money wine list. Recommended.

We were staying in Adelaide for the week from NSW and headed to Glenelg for the Sunday. Had breakfast at Mamma Carmelo. Was ok but nothing to write home about. Toast overcooked, no cracked pepper offered but in saying that meal still ok. Coffee nice. Ok place to go but I'm sure one of the nearby places would be better.

We ate dinner here last Thursday night. The service was brilliant - staff all went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The food looked really appealing when it was brought out to us (the way it was presented) pieces had been placed carefully on the pizzas - not just tossed on. The food was just as tasty... More

Reasonable breakfast, fast service. Not sure howya can get a ham cheese tomato croissant wrong, but got fixed quickly, even if the tomato went in cold. Good coffee

We called in for an early Friday evening meal.... Ordered a special and gourmet pizza... Toppings good, but I feel the chef was very light on with the pizza tomato base... Just a bit bland to be honest. Also a little undercooked.... Base was a bit gummy. Staff were polite, helpful and pleasant Housewine was great.... Some acoustic / sound... More

Noisy authentic Italian cafe. Our squid was cooked perfectly, the salad fresh and crisp. We will definitely return
