Andre’s Cucina & Polenta Bar

Light-filled Italian restaurant with an organic garden, offering set menus and quick lunches.

After ten years of magic, Andre’s Cucina and Polenta bar will not be renewing the lease at 94 Frome St, Adelaide.

Our Cucina was an institution. It was part of the culinary fabric of the Adelaide CBD, and while we are sad to close this chapter, we warm-heartedly reflect on the incredible journey that we have been on. We fondly remember our remarkable accomplishments, such as our coveted place in the The Australian’s ‘Australia’s Hot 50 Restaurants 2014’ and our ‘Best Italian’ award, in The Advertiser Food Awards 2015. We also remember our quieter achievements. The ten years of customer goodwill, the loyal patrons and the many amazing staff we were able to successfully influence throughout the decade.

We are very proud to close these doors as a successful business! However, there are some very exciting things to come.

Andre’s Cucina & CATERING CO continues to operate for all styles of catering service.
