Who we are

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

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. The sauce, which can be found in different versions, is a centrepiece on family tables across Italy.

We grew up in the countryside, where there has always been a “cucina povera”. To share the traditions of Italian cuisine blended with creativity and simplicity is our aim.

Our chefs embrace the Italian methods and knowledge to prepare the typical recipes from those small towns where the pureness of the ingredients and the attention to details are the basis of the cuisine.

Respect for Italian and Australian ingredients is at the heart of our approach.

We try to stay as local as possible, using ingredients such as meat, oil, and flour 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 wines. We also offer some of the most excellent Italian wines and beverages if you want a truly authentic Italian experience.

If I could give more than five stars, I would. We had a terrific experience with absolutely exquisite food! The restaurant has a warm and rustic environment, and the staff is very efficient and attentive. The food was incredible – I highly recommend Ragu & Co!

My husband, being part Italian, tends to not like eating pasta out because it’s never quite ‘right’. Ragu & Co was amazing. The food was great. Saucy pasta, simple pizzas with great ingredients. If we lived closer this would be our regular!
