Located along King William Road in the Adelaide CBD, Spaghetti Western offers a good range of Italian-style dishes, with pasta dishes fittingly being the main focus on the menu. This restaurant is known to get pretty busy so booking a table is advisable; pre-orders are also available for those with limited time to dine.
The seafood in their Seafood Linguini was cooked just right, with the prawns having their shells left on for a sweeter flavour. The linguini was cooked al dente and the Amatriciana sauce the ingredients were tossed in enhanced their flavour without overwhelming them.

Their Fusilli Rustico had an ample amount of chorizo to impart a delectable smoky taste to the dish and the capsicum added a bit of sweetness to the dish. While the menu described the dish ad having a creamy tomato sauce, the degree of creaminess was actually quite mild; great for those who are concerned that the dish may be too creamy for their taste. A scattering of rocket leaves gave the dish a fresh appearance as well as adding a bit of peppery flavour.

One of the non-pasta dishes that can be ordered, their BBQ Beef Ribs had flesh that separated easily from the bones and the degree of barbeque flavour that we enjoy. Accompanying the beef ribs was Italian coleslaw whose tangy flavour was a good partner to the beef. There were also greens that we thought was watercress to add an element of freshness to the dish.
Spaghetti Western's Arancini Balls stood out from the ones we had at other restaurants due to the inclusion of sweet potato in the filling to give them a slightly sweet taste. The filling was not too guggly and had enough mushrooms to give them a delectable earthy taste. Served with the dish were béchamel and tomato sauce to dip the Arancini Balls in if you desire to add more flavour.

The décor of the restaurant gave it a rustic feel. There was the choice of bar-style seating on the ground floor or normal table seating on the first floor. If you are looking for a good place to enjoy Italian cuisine in the Adelaide CBD, consider giving Spaghetti Western a try.
