Seminyak Italian restaurant Ultimo

Seminyak Italian restaurant Ultimo

As the name suggests Seminyak Italian restaurant Ultimo is an Italian restaurant in Seminyak on Jalan Oberoi (the road to the Oberoi hotel, also known as Jalan Laksmana). If you want good food, look for a busy restaurant, and Ultimo is busy. Very busy.

And it is big, and the staff are very efficient yet polite and ensure that your every need is met. Well, maybe not every need!

If you arrive when Seminyak Italian restaurant Ultimo is busy, you can sit at the lively bar and wait for a table and watch one of the very entertaining bar staff make your drink. I often eat at the bar, which is also pleasant if a bit smokey.

Nice way to meet people actually, so if I am eating alone that is what I will choose.

The bar is a great place to people watch as there are people from all walks of life and usually a little more mature –  rarely do you see someone here in their 20s.

The kitchen is open plan and you can watch (and hear the incessant chat over the intercoms, my only gripe about the aesthetics here) your food being prepared, and see for yourself their professionalism.

Ultimo is a meeting place for friends, and for many expats living nearby has become a home away from home, their ‘local’ quality Bali Italian restaurant. Tourists also love Seminyak Italian restaurant Ultimo as it delivers every time. Good tasty clean food.

Good food, great ambience, and there is a stage in the outdoor area where a band plays romantic classics during the week while an Italian tenor thrills the ladies on weekend nights. This changes of course, but it’s usually pretty good.

Outside has an electric roof that rolls out at the first sign of rain, while there is a large non-smoking section inside which is a big plus for those who don’t like smoke with their food!

Well priced at around 120k for an average main, with a wide selection of ‘prima piata’s and ‘secondi piata’s plus the usual antipasta plus desserts.

My favourite is the pesto beef carpacio which I eat most times I go there.

Cocktails and wine are at the usual mid range Bali restaurant prices, though wine is problematic throughout Indonesia, especially if you are something of a sommelliere.

Some recent visits there in May 2015 revealed a price increase seemingly across the board of about 20-25%, so it has moved into a higher price bracket, with seemingly no effect upon their numbers.

Seminyak Italian restaurant Ultimo is definitely in my top 100 Bali restaurants and in my top 10 Seminyak restaurants. See the bottom of this page for more photos.

Ultimo has valet parking so if you are driving then no worries, just drive up to the door and hand over your keys!

I loved the Italian tenor singing in the Ultimo Italian restaurant garden area, So romantic. Really nice night. Good food, nice wine, great company - the Italian love songs in the background really helped set a tone!!

I took your advice when I went there alone one night, and ate at the bar, and yes, I met a gorgeous woman. With her boyfriend. Nevertheless I had lots of fun, will go again, and yes, the food is excellent, staff great, and not so expensive.

I've been to this restaurant two times now. I love this place, it's romantic, the atmosphere even more romantic with a good singer in the garden section. The main course, steak was delicious, great service, we will be back again. I really enjoyed that night. If you want good Italian food in Seminyak go to Ultimo.

Ultimo is not just excellent food and good service, but a visit to Ultimo is a dining experience. I have tried a lot of dishes which were so lovely. Great place
