Restaurant and Cafe

At the beginning of 2022, we took over the old Umbria Restaurant, located in the beautiful Chaff Mill building in Clare, to recreate an authentic Italian and family-friendly cuisine.

With vivid memories of long lunches and pots on the stove cooking for hours, we couldn’t find a better name than Ragu & Co. Ragu is the mother of all Italian dishes and represents the very essence of Italy’s food and culture.

Sharing the traditions of Italian cuisine blended with creativity and simplicity is our aim. Our chefs embrace the Italian methods to prepare the typical recipes from those small towns where the pureness of the ingredients and the attention to detail are the basis of the cuisine.

We try to stay as local as possible, using ingredients from Clare Valley to prepare hand-made pizza and superb gnocchi. We guarantee the freshest flavours, using seasonal fruit and vegetables from farms North of Adelaide and fish from the pristine Eyre Peninsula.

Our wine list showcases a wide range of outstanding Clare Valley and Italian wines.

We are located in a rustic and romantic venue, close to nature, with an Alfresco, indoor and function area where you can celebrate your best moments with family and friends.

We promise relaxed Italian dining that offers something different and ensures you enjoy a memorable food experience every time.
