We went there for dinner with a couple pf friends and we all had a pizza.

One pizza was supposed to be with extra mushrooms. However when it arrived there were not mushrooms. When we gave the pizza back they just put some mushrooms on the pizza put it back again into the over for a few minutes and brought it back. The pizza was nice an crunchy after that.

After we finished the first bottle of wine, we wanted a second one, but could not get any staffs attention for a long time. Maybe it is different in NZ, if I order a bottle of wine, I do expect the first glass to be poured by the restaurant staff as it is done in any other country. However thay just put the bottle on the table and walked away. It was not one of the cheapest wines we ordered.

The restaurant was not even half full, it might even get worse if it is really busy.

Dropped in for a takeaway pizza on way back to hotel after a glow worm tour. Friendly greeting by the owner, watched the pizza chef assemble our pizza and cook in the wood fired oven, tasted great with just the right amount of toppings, pizza base was fantastic. Wish we were staying longer so we could go back.

Friendly welcome, order taken promptly. Lots of variety on the menu from pizzas, pasta and rissotto dishes, and other dishes. Both of us had a pasta dish, fresh made pasta that was delicious. Both meals very tasty and arrived quickly. Reasonably priced menu.
