Set in beautiful poolside surroundings, Uccello is ivy's hidden rooftop gem.
Head chef, David Lovett, is a true Italophile, having spent a length of time traversing the regions of Italy. He now applies this experience to his authentic Italian menu at Uccello by selecting only the freshest produce and allowing ingredients to speak for themselves.
David’s less-is-more approach is evident in his steak menu featuring incredible pasture-fed beef sourced direct from Adelaide’s passionate and dedicated butcher, Richard Gunner. After dry-aging on the bone for six to eight weeks to ensure meat is tender and flavourful, cuts are cooked simply over flame with McLaren Vale Olive Oil and Murray River pink salt.
