I was skeptical of Italian food in NZ. I was pleasantly surprised when my food arrived. I ordered chicken marsala, and chicken parmesan on different visits. They did NOT disappoint. Both items were very flavorful and large portions which I had to take the extras back to the hotel. They offer good selections of wine, beer, and desserts. The staff... More

We ate here 2 nights in a row. We were staying at the Best Western a couple of doors down so it was easy to walk to. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. Due to metro works it is hard to see when walking past on other side of street but well worth looking for. Lasagne... More

This small restaurant has a family neighbourhood feeling. The service is friendly and attentive. We ended up eating there twice, finding the pasta and pizza really very good.

We had been eating here just after we got to Auckland. The restaurant is quite small, but thats also a reason why we liked it a lot. The staff was very friendly and the pasta (pollo & carbonara) were very delicious! We got free wifi here and the prices with approx. 23$ per plate reasonable for Auckland!

We hit this place for dinner after a long day exploring Auckland. We were pleasantly surprised... authentic pasta dishes and a fantastic calzone! Relatively inexpensive and worth a visit for a casual dinner. Portions are large- you won't leave hungry.

Had dinner here before a show at the Civic because it's close. The pizza bread is yummy. We all had different pasta dishes and enjoyed our meals. It was hot, filling and average quality. The booth seating is not very comfy and a tight squeeze, the tables are also very close together, so you wouldn't want to stay a long... More

We just wanted Italian style pizza for early dinner and checked tripadvisor rewievs. This pizzeria had many good and exellent rewievs and we were confident about it. But we were very disapppointed about the quality of their pizzas. Pizzas are not Italian style, more like American. Dough tasted like ready made insdustrial. Toppings were tasteless and poor quality. We didn't... More
