Adamo's Pasta
725 Botany Rd,
Rosebery, Sydney

“Fresh is best” is a phrase you hear a lot but when it comes to pasta, it couldn’t be more true.

This lovely little pasta heaven in Rosebery is full of wonderful choices.

As you walk through the door you are faced with an impressive cabinet of fresh and award-winning pastas of all shapes and flavours.

From plain linguine and tagliatelle to spinach or beetroot flavoured flat varieties, there is a lovely range to entice you. If choosing a pasta is hard, choosing a sauce is no easier - lots of tempting flavours to mix and match.

If it’s filled pastas you’re into, there are plenty of fillings on offer including spinach and ricotta, duck and sweet potato, porcini mushroom, quattro formaggio and pumpkin gnocchi, to name a few. The fridges are full of them!

These Dames are here for a dine-in lunch so we checked out the menu and today’s specials. There is a ready-made selection behind the side counter which has you salivating. This appealing range of hot dishes is great for a grab-and-go or a very quick sit down weekday lunch.

We had time, so we decided on the Burrata and a Caprese salad from the specials board to start with.

The Burrata (a cheese ball with a mozzarella-style outer and a creamy centre) was served on spinach with pomegranate and hazelnut dressing.

It was fresh and light and the crispy Parmesan wafer on the side was really good.

The Caprese salad was a simple but fresh and tasty combination.

It was a mix of sliced tomato, torn basil and big hunks of sliced buffalo mozzarella cheese.

We love a good Caprese salad and this one could easily be described in one simple word - yum.

We followed this with a traditional beef lasagna, which had caught our attention at the counter.

It’s reportedly the most popular dish here and it was rich with oozing layers of cheese and meat sauces.

The pasta was obviously superior due to its freshness.

The next dish to arrive was Pumpkin Ravioli with black beans, ricotta and beetroot leaves. It was on the specials board and it sounded like an innovative combination.

What a light and summery dish it was too, with the soft, fresh ricotta complementing the pumpkin pasta. The addition of black beans gave it a nice contrast both in colour and texture.

Now who could pass up a good cannoli? We just had to try their crunchy, creamy delights, filled with vanilla and chocolate. So good!

Adamo's is open Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 7.30pm and there are some lovely light meal options especially suited to a summer dinner. Also open Saturdays from 8.00am to 4.00pm.
