A gorgeous and inviting all-day restaurant made to please everybody, Pippo is the perfect addition to the food scene of North Adelaide. Husband and wife duo, Danielle Elia and James Anthony, are the masterminds behind popular Adelaide eateries Public, Way Back When, and Bowlsome – with Pippo being the latest extension on their project to bring good food and good times to our city.
The venue has made an incredible transformation, and the Danielle and James’ hard work has definitely payed off! An open-air dining area is perfect for the upcoming summertime, with seating available both inside and outside. Velvety pink booths match the gorgeous tiled bar, and gold trimmings give an elegant and expensive feel. The light wooden seating areas feel open and refreshing, whilst the rich colours of the walls and lighting make the space feel warm and wholesome. Pippo manages to be the perfect mix of modern and classy, whilst still feeling homely and inviting.
Pippo is open seven days a week, from 7am until late. There are three menus on offer: a breakfast menu from 7am – 11:30am on weekdays; a lunch and dinner menu for all days of the week; and a brunch menu which is available from 7am – 2pm on weekends. All menus are designed by chef Jaime Glennie, who is the executive chef for Pippo, Public, and Way Back When. There are also options available take-away for workers on a tight lunch schedule, and their store Bowlsome next door complements the take-away aspect of their restaurant. A range of gelato are available for dessert, with decadent flavours like fig, pistachio, and blood orange.
A gorgeous drinks menu offers an incredible selection of prime South Australian wines, including sparkling, reds, and whites. The drinks range between $8 and $11 a glass, and can also be purchased by the bottle. The bar has a range of spirits and liqueurs for those who would rather something other than a glass (or two!) of wine.
Danielle Elia tells us that she had to ‘[take] the opportunity’ to create Pippo when they found such ‘a prime location’ in North Adelaide, which she describes as a ‘giving suburb.’ She tells us that ‘in North Adelaide, when you give something out to the community, they are sure to give back.’ Danielle wants Pippo to be a place that welcomes all people, that can provide something to please everybody, and somewhere that is an easy option for a broad clientele, whilst still providing a beautiful venue and delicious food.
The name Pippo came from Danielle Elia, who describes it as a ‘fun word’ which is suitable for a restaurant which is open at ‘every time of the day.’ It gives off a fun morning vibe for lunch-goers, as well as a bubbly nighttime name for diners who want to enjoy dinner and drinks!
Open from the 31st of October, be sure to visit Pippo for any occasion – not matter if it’s brunch with your friends, lunch with the family, or a romantic dinner with a loved one. We can’t wait to go back and test out the menu in this elegant addition to North Adelaide.
