Stopped by for a casual drink. Beautiful setting and nice atmosphere with a great authentic traditional Italian feel. The staff all looked and sounded Italian which added to the character of the place. Will go back next time for a meal.

Stopped for a lazy long lunch, lovely setting, the wine was not so much to my taste, the staff could have explained the process of the lunch a little more, there were no wine recommendations. The food was good, left there feeling very full.

The restaurant is within their vineyard. It is a good half an hours drive from the ferry but worthwhile! You need to book to assure that they can accommodate you, because they are very popular. I had the pleasure in going there 2 days in...More

WelcomePoderi Crisci Vineyard and Winery, set in a stunning amphitheatre surrounded by vines and olive trees, has fast become the quintessence of what in Italy is called: Agroturismo. Located 30 minutes from Matiatia in Awaawaroa Bay, Poderi Crisci occupies 7.7 hectares of north-facing slopes in the heart of Waiheke’s unique wine growing microclimate. The narrow rocky strip underlying Poderi Crisci is believed to be 30 million years older than the rest of the Island, boasting soil criss-crossed with mineralised veins. For four generations the Crisci family has been immersed in food and wine, Antonio born and raised in Napoli came to NZ in early 1990 and established Toto Restaurant in Nelson Street . With his partner Vivienne Farnell they opened Non Solo Pizza, an institution in Parnell in 1997 and Bar Vino in 2009.
