About Ombra

A taste of Italy in the capital; Ombra is Cuba Street’s answer to a cosy Italian diner. Inspired by the informal bacarai (bars & restaurants) of Venice, they know how to slow it down and let you fully enjoy your dining experience. On the menu you’ll find an array of authentic dishes sectioned by small bites, salads and vegetables, plate-sized pizzas, rice and pasta, meatballs, fish and meat, and dessert, with plenty of gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian options. Pair some share plates with a selection from Ombra’s wine list or a classic Aperol Spritz so you can sip and watch Cuba Street pass you by.

We had a fantastic time at Ombra - the food was incredible, a good selection of drinks, and the service was fantastic! A great job at what must be a hard time in hospitality given Covid-19! Thanks Ombra :)

Service was friendly and efficient, perhaps sometimes too efficient. Our table was right next to a wait station/till and felt a little cramped. The food was very good, though the two steaks were cooked quite differently. The risotto was very good indeed as were the desserts. Being given a time limit on the table is something I haven’t encountered before. Comprehensive drinks menu.

No social distancing.. we were at a table located right by the cash register. Multiple staff members used the cash register who had been interacting with other tables. I thought this was inappropriate, especially at level 2 restrictions.

My friends and I had a lovely time! Lily was our server and she was WONDERFUL. Attentive but didn’t hover too much (as they do in some restaurants). The food was great, as were the drinks:)

I thought the food was really well priced and the recommendation of 2 plates per person was perfect! The food was delicious and we would love to go back again.
