Why this Adelaide Hills pasta restaurant is worth the drive

Located in the Adelaide Hills, Spaghetti Head has become a go-to destination for authentic freshly made pasta. Have you tried them yet?

With those cosy winter nights soon to be on our doorstep, Spaghetti Head in the Adelaide Hills is the perfect spot to cure those winter blues.

Located in the heart of Aldgate and just a 25 minute, the minute you step through the door, you’re greeted with the inviting aroma of freshly made pasta and the warm smiles of its owners, Ashley and Amanda themselves. This charming eatery has become a go-to destination for those seeking authentic Italian flavours served with passion and dedication. All pastas are made fresh in house daily with a dedicated menu for all of our gluten free, vegan and coeliac friends.

A crowd favourite and signature dish of the establishment is the Spaghetti Head with Prawns. The succulent prawns are tussled through perfectly cooked pasta, infused with the fiery kick of chilli and topped with the delicious flavours including grana padano and pangrattato.

Other menu items include the classics such as the rich and creamy campanelle alla vodka, or savour the comforting embrace of spaghetti bolognese. For those seeking a hearty dish, look no further than the rigatoni ragu, where tender beef and pork are slow-cooked to perfection.

If you can’t make it to Aldgate for dinner, don’t stress! There is plenty on offer the rest of the day. For a quick yet satisfying lunch, indulge in their Italian paninis, like the La Carne Panini, priced as low as $12. Perfectly toasted bread envelops a medley of savoury fillings, promising a taste of Italy in every bite.

For those planning special gatherings, Spaghetti Head offers banquet packages starting from just $40 per head, ensuring that memorable moments are accompanied by exceptional food and hospitality.

In October 2021, Amanda Cordina and Ash Sleiman brought their culinary vision to life with Spaghetti Head. The dynamic duo recognised a distinct opportunity to enrich their community’s culinary landscape. Fuelled by a shared passion for authentic Italian cuisine, they set out to introduce locals to a new dining experience.

Spaghetti Head believes in letting fresh produce speak for itself, by making fresh, light and simplistic pasta dishes. “This is truly what Italian cuisine and pasta is about,” said Ash.
