I'm a local girl who absolutely adores Adelaide. With the hills, ocean, and world's best wine regions, festivals all year round, great food and coffee, rich multiculturalism, and non-stop live music - why would I want to be anywhere else?

Wood Oven and Life Lovin'
Next time you find yourself on a cold, dark, wintry day, overwhelmed by the incredible smell of wood-fired pizza, and wanting nothing more than to sit in a cosy spot, eating delicious food, having friendly banter with a bearded waiter – you have found yourself at Barrio Uno.

Barrio Uno is a traditional pizzeria, wine café & espresso bar in Adelaide's CBD, located at 108 Waymouth Street (slightly east of Light Square and next to the Queen's Theatre). This is the newest baby for renowned restaurateur Kerry Flanagan, who will greet you warmly, serve you promptly, and tell you tales with a sparkle in his eye.

Mr Flanagan built the wood-oven himself, and it was decorated by local artist Ting Adolphus. It is worth going to Barrio Uno to check out this work of art alone.

Once there, however, you will have to try the pizza. Fancy a Constantinople (lamb, pistachio, feta, tomato, mint and yoghurt) or rather try a Fleurieu (pumpkin, sweet potato, zucchini, ricotta, tahini)? Pizzas range from $16-25 and Barrio Uno has something for everyone: share plates, salads, beer, wine, cider, coffee. Dietary needs like gluten-free and vegetarian are accommodated too. As someone who normally loves multi-layered pizzas I was surprised to find my favourite is the Margherita. Friends tell me that's the Italian way - Ingredients are fresh, local, and well chosen. You can't go wrong.

You will notice a new part of the unique décor every time you arrive. If you've had a long day then sit back and stare out the shutters to the refreshing view of the Italian coast. If you're like me you'll also be delighted by the range of music: the pleasant surprise of your favourite song coming on, bopping to old classics, and discovering new gems too.

I've begun frequenting Barrio Uno because it's one of those places that I don't want to leave. Whether I'm catching up with old friends; meeting my brother for lunch; having after work drinks; or a quiet red while I read my book: Barrio Uno fits every occasion.
