Auge is one of Adelaide’s most sophisticated Italian restaurants and winner of many an award. Its styled décor is tasteful compliment to a respected menu built around superb South Australian produce. Enjoy an aperitivo and stuffed zucchini flower in the Spuntini Bar, or settle down in luxe surrounds to hand-made-daily pasta such as tortellini with duck ragu.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Auge’s apparent drive to leave no stone unturned in the delivery of an exceptional restaurant experience has been acknowledged and awarded by customers and industry alike since it arrived. Auge remains one of the go to places in the country to impress with refined Italian food and the well-oiled workings of a professional hospitality operation. It is the George Clooney of Italian restaurants in Adelaide – devilishly smooth, handsome, with a cultivated cool. If it was near his villa on Lake Como in Italy, you can bet that he would be there.

I cannot speak for Clooney, but I am sure he would purr over the prix fixe menu and degustation options, to thoroughly enjoy what is on offer. Regardless of your standing, whether it that of movie star or one keen to indulge in the tasteful manoeuvring of prime ingredients into seductive Italian dishes, you too will leave with a smug smile after an evening of tomato-soaked sour dough wrapped in fried egg sheet, crispy salumi and goat’s curd, angel hair pasta with South Australian blue swimmer crab, potato dumplings with pulled pork and pork “bubble”, salt-baked Flinders Ranges dorper lamb and roasted spatchcock stuffed with cotechino sausage, pearl barley, sautéed grapes and fresh fig.

Auge’s menus are seasonal, but the chocolate fudge cake dessert, with salted caramel, burnt butter chocolate mousse, and chocolate meringue should stay as a crowd pleaser all year round. The wine list is worthy of solo review, as is the cheese. With the latter, let Vento D’Estate lead the way, with its herbaceous allure all the better for a roll in the hay. It’s wheels are aged blanketed under layers of it.

Auge Ristorante and Spuntini Bar - User Reviews

Patricia Charles:

My partner and I dined there during the week. We were welcomed warmly. The food is superb and outstanding. The service cannot be faulted. Everthing is explained about the dish, and it's history. It was our first time and will not be our last. I recommend this Ristorante to anyone.review  15/11/2013

Jenny:

Auge has set the standards of fine dining to another level. I had a group of 12 guests for my birthday, it was well organised and the service was exceptional! The food was to die for, and it was not overpriced. This is the second time I have celebrated my birthday there, but I wont wait another year to visit again!review  09/07/2012

Michial:

Although very close to the Hilton, Auge is still a place that can easily be missed by a casual visitor to Adelaide. Pity those who do. The menu at Auge is interesting and exciting; northern Italian fare at its best. My group chose the six course degustation, the highlights of which were the barramundi and the duck. The smoked pecorino which came with the cheese course was also a delight. My only criticism was that the salad accompanying the duck was slightly over seasoned. We ordered our own wine although, on reflection, we would have been better off sticking with the wine flight recommended on the menu. The formal setting suited the quality of the food. The staff were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Definitely worth a visit!review  23/11/2011
