At Parisi's Cafe, contemporary Italian food is warmed with Italian hospitality and that's why this Hyde Park restaurant has been voted Adelaide's suburban best. Situated on the fashionista boulevard of King William Road, the cafe offers a number of different dining spaces, including a suave, modern dining room and an elegantly rustic courtyard area. The menu is a meeting of the traditional and the contemporary, but you're sure to find it satisfying.

Next to the iconic Denim Iniquity.

Over a dozen plump beauties lay in a cream sauce of garlic, basil, chilli, chives and wine. Lemon wedges provide extra flavour spikes. Roast capsicum strips and well-dressed rocket add to this lush encounter of garlic prawns. Although steamed rice may not play part in Parisi’s interpretation, sexy salty schiacciata bread can always be had on the side, to soak up every last drop.
In 1967 Antonino Parisi opened Adelaide’s first all-night pizzeria, Marcellina. In 1975 his son Andy established the now iconic La Trattoria – hangout of the hospitality crowd after their night was done, and the odd internationally famous rock star, actor, or race car driver. Fast forward to 2007 and his children have their inherited hospitality biz prowess awarded for Parisi’s, Hyde Park. Its modern dining room leads into a courtyard suggestive of traditional Italy. Simone Parisi keeps an eagle eye on all. Food is cooked a-la-minute with fresh seafood always on order. The menu charms with grandfather Antonino wielding an octopus. End with an affogato of Tia Maria doused gelato and espresso shot. Simone humbly offers, “We are just a busy restaurant”, but there is very good reason why this is so.

Matthew Hutchens:

I visited Parisi's with a girlfriend off the cuff one Friday evening (2010) and was very impressed. Mostly luck, but we were able to get a table at the window with nothing but courtesy from the family staff which continued throughout our meal. The menu presented a full array of choices, with tempting dishes incorporating truly seasonal produce such as the prosciutto wrapped figs. We left very satisfied indeed and without breaking the  02/02/2012
