Food was great...service friendly...nothing was a trouble to them. Great atmosphere...possibly a bit noisy but made up for the great food. All good....would definitely go there again next time we're in New Zealand.

Love going here. Very friendly interactive host. Amazing food, never disappointed except when they are full. Transports you back to Italy with the music and authentic food..Will go back often as so many dishes to try and great blackboard specials. Lovely little place with character.
