I have been quite tough on a few places I have visited but this place is great....I have been here a couple of times and if you want a casual and unpretentious local that serves great food at a reasonable price and BYO this is for you. The food is simple and tasty and beautifully cooked - no one will... More

And we are so pleased we did. My husband is a pasta addict but I can take it or leave it. So pretty well made up my mind I would choose other than pasta. The small but cosy trattoria looks like the locale for many. The waiter was very good, sense of humour and good looking to boot. Deciding to... More

If you want great food this is the place to go, the veal in particular was superb. We went midweek and it wasnt too crowded. Service was average but we were with family so weren' in a hurry, definately will be going again.

The food here is just amazing! The pasta is so beautifully cooked and I love how cosy the place feels. There are some nights where the service is slow so I wouldn't come here if I have plans for after dinner. I highly recommend this place if you want fantastic pasta for dinner :-)

As real Italians we really enjoyed this restaurant. Food was extremely good and astonishing close (if not equal) to its original counterpart 20.000 km away. We didn't expect that much, so we were really impressed. Also, anyone in the restaurant is really Italian, which was a plus for us.

We were delighted to find an authentic Italian restaurant in New Zealand, after quite a number of disappointing attempts. The setting is simple and reminded us of some of the trattorias we frequented years ago in Rome. We began the meal with bruschetta which was as good as we have enjoyed. This was followed by some delicious scampi which were... More

Really, reading the reviews not just of this place but many others one wonders if folk really do get out much. I keep reading comments like "short menu" and the "mash potato was underwhelming" and such like. Me no frego has quite a long menu with at least 20 choices for main (short means 5) and potato clearly from a... More
