The Adelaide Food Guide 2010 "The addition ofMasterChefcontestant Andre Ursini to the kitchen created quite a buzz at Martini. Ursini claims he was drawn to the place for its Italian credentials and authentic food served with an up-to-the-minute twist"
Adelaide Advertiser TONY LOVE, 06-6-2007 Score: 14.5/20 "Gently made-over Norwood Italian ristorante with a deal of style in the kitchen, though more attention at the tables would be appreciated."
Adelaide Advertiser 2006 "This may be called a cafe but don't be swayed into thinking it's run-of-the-mill. At the city end of The Parade, Martini is a little bit of bar, cafe, bistro and proper, fine-dining restaurant and the sum of its parts appears undiminished by its many roles."
Gourmet Traveller 2005 Australian Restaurant Guide "Okay, sure, the sign says it's a says cafe, but Martini is so very much smarter than that - a good rustic Italian restaurant set to formal standards, but with a whimsical (to some, unfortunate) taste in Hollywood/Rat Pack-style wall decorations. Keep a tight focus on the food and you'll get a better idea where chef Marco Ravesi's head"
