We used Trip advisor reviews to find a good Italian restaurant close to where we were staying in Auckland. Bosco Verde was conveniently located for our friends coming in from the south, north west and west. Good parking outside the restaurant or in the surrounding streets. Bosco Verde is a BYO (Bring your own alcohol). For those not familiar with... More

Went there on Monday with a friend. We were first there at 6 but the place had other customers later and ambience and decor were all ok. We had the pesto and parmesan topped pizza bread which was ok. I am not a great fan of pesto but my friend happily finished what I didn't want. For mains (entree size)... More

This restaurant has been here for about 30 years and it is always delicious. Small, so you could call to book, the meals are huge. Love this place, and its never failed yet.

First time here and we did have a fun time but generally a bit average. This was definitely a popular place and the astmostphere was quite buzzy. The decor is very tired. We were seated by the toilet area entrance and the banging of the door was annoying. The meals were tasty and arrived promptly.

A true Italian local. We have visited several times and the food and service have always been wonderful. This is a small restaurant with a warm ambiance, a traditional menu and a byo licence.

I came here with a friend of mine on the 16th July, (Sat evening) neither of us thought to book ahead as we'd only decided to meet here the night before. I was told we could be seated provided we were out by 7:30pm which suited us both fine considering we didn't have a reservation. I ordered the Chicken Tortellini... More

A very basic Italian restaurant which has not changed its menu or character in over ten years. We did not book so had to eat early and were asked to leave by 7pm. The food was hot but I doubt if it was cooked that day - more likely precooked and frozen. Not licensed. Wait service was only barely friendly.

We met friends for dinner and were disappointed. While the food was nice the service let the restaurant down. We waited 1.5 hours for our meals and they were served in drips and drags. People who arrived after us got their meals half an hour before us. A pepper grinder broke and the pepper corns went all over one of... More
