Had a great lunch and drinks during crowded Lions rugby tour weekend. In Australia, and I guess NZ, we seem to think pizzas should be "gourmet" with as many ingredients the marketing people can promote, and the pizza can handle. This restaurant serves much more...More

We went to Eat Street to check out what was on offer. We had been to Nuvo a few years ago, and decided that they had the best choice on offer for us. Great traditional Italian pizza, awesome Carbonara, and a very nice steak. We...More
