Dinner with a mate on a stormy Thursday night. Did we get a warm Italian welcome?, a friendly evening with a congenial host? Great Italian food? None of this. A pretty average Beef kebab served by the lady of the house while her husband scowled...More

What a great place for our group.. They accommodated 8 people, opening another room and served us promptly and efficiently! The food was amazing! Our mixed grill was cooked to perfection. Next time we are in Auckland it's a must for fine food. 👍👍👍👍

This is a pleasant ittle family-run Italian restaurant just off Parnell Road. It is a simple, homely establishment and the food is simple home fare - nothing grand but the service from Marcia was friendly and helpful. Some of the tablecloths were looking a bit...More
