Italian food at its finest
This week, I had the pleasure of having lunch at Osteria Oggi, a cool little restaurant on Pirie Street in Adelaide. The interior was beautifully lit with ample space and comfortable seating and the service was first-rate.

Now, lets cut to the chase and get to the food. I ordered a spaghetti carbonara and two desserts; a custard tart with honey ice cream and a tiramisu affogato.

The spaghetti carbonara was rich and flavoursome with bits of deliciously fatty pork and enhanced by a dash of pecorino. The spaghetti itself was cooked al dente and enjoyable to eat.

The custard tart had a tangy, creamy interior, complemented by a light and crisp pastry shell and a delightfully sweet and even creamier honey ice cream.

The tiramisu affogato was a wonderfully layered dessert of vanilla cream liqueur, chocolate parfait and coffee anglaise. Soft and creamy with a melt-in-mouth sensation, it was easily the dish of the day.

Overall, I had a great time at Osteria Oggi and highly recommend the restaurant to all of you. Will be back here for sure!
