Located in Hindmarsh, The Omni specialises in offering a wide range of Italian cuisine along with a few Australian favourites such as burgers and schnitzels. The place was popular with the locals; there was a crowd of a good size present when we visited.
As expected, The Omni offers a good range of pasta dishes which can be ordered with your choice of Linguine, Penne, Spaghetti, Gnocchi or Ravioli. The penne pasta we chose for the Pollo Boscaiola was cooked to al dente and the pieces of roast chicken were cooked just right. The addition of bacon and mushrooms complemented the dish well and the roasted capsicum provided a bit of sweetness. All the ingredients were tossed in a rose sauce which tied everything together.

A good choice for those in the mood for Australian cuisine, their Angus Beef Burger featured a juicy beef patty which had the degree of char-grilled flavour to make eating it an enjoyable experience. The pickles added a hint of sharpness to the burger. This was balanced out by the creamy lemon garlic aioli. We particularly enjoyed the chips that were served with the burger because they had a nice crisp texture and was appropriately salted.

For something that is bit lighter, the Caesar Salad is a good choice. There was a good amount of bacon to provide a delectable smoky taste and the anchovies provided a salty taste that was not too strong. Helping to enhance the experience were crispy croutons and a poached egg with a lovely runny yolk. If you wish for a more filling dish, chicken can be added for a bit of an extra cost.
Great for sating your hunger while waiting for your main meals, their Tandoori Wings were cooked to perfection with a good amount of spice to give them the typical Indian flavour. The wings were served on a bed of lettuce which acted as a good foil to their spiced flavour.
