Came here with my partner and was surprised to see the change in the restaurant. They've expanded and it looks great! Service was perfect, food was out quickly. Selection of meals are great. We had the pizza bread and added cheese, the vegetarian pasta and the tortellini. All meals were fantastic and packed full of flavour! We will definitely be... More

Food definitely not Italian. All too drenched in tomato sauce. Not recommendable. Tried this place several times. Service was decent depending on what student was working. Owner friendly enough but doesn't know Italian food either.

A nice little gem in the Suburbs of Auckland, the beautiful city in New Zealand. We were warmly received and seated. The food was freshly cooked and very tasty. I heartily recommend

Last time we visited wasn't very sucessful. Great garlic bread, the rest leaves a lot to be desired. I ordered the fillet steak but received another cut of meat, definately not fillet, served with deep-fried re-heated potato, and luke warm veges, and way overpriced! Daughter had cabonara, was oily as if the sauce had split (perhaps microwaved?), wife had pizza... More

Been to his place a few times now when back in NZ visiting family. Good Italian food, the garlic pizza bread is just as the Italians make it. Service is good and food served in a timely manner. There is an outdoor seating area as well, nice spot on a lovely summers night. The owner is always friendly and wants... More

We went along on a week night and sad to see we were the only ones there for the first hour or so but that was great for us as we had excellent,fast service and great food accompanied by a few Italian beers. Prices were a little higher than I expected and the cutlery and crockery were very tired but... More

Food is ok, service leaves a little to be desired, atmosphere is cold and the bathrooms are terrible.
