Imagine a modern Italian eatery that combines Venetian elegance with a non-pretentious, modern feel. Designed by Genesin Studio in collaboration with Walter Brooke, ITL restaurant in Adelaide carries a vibe of an old, raw Palazzo where architectonic details allow to travel between continents. Though it seems simple, there’s a lot to marvel at inside the space. From Palladian floors through beautiful entry portals to concrete surfaces, the restaurant plays with conventions, mixing a variety of materials and furniture that gloriously complement each other.
The space – including an Espresso Bar, Kitchen Table, Bar Dining and Alfresco Dining alongside Private Rooms – was thought out to fit different occasions. From ultimately casual to more formal. Wooden tables meet nude leather chairs, terrazzo floors contrast with retro stucco walls. Intimate lighting brightens secluded dining tables while abstract artworks add a gallery-like ambience. Because as much as the interior derives from Venetian grandiose, it also hints at Italian modernism. An open bar and cooking space offer a view of cocktails and menus in the making. A kind of openness that reflects Italian honesty and authenticity in the most beautiful way.
