The clam dish was a hit and the house antipasti platter we shared was the perfect start. Followed by some well cooked pasta. The service was pretty good and we enjoyed our night out

Went in with a group of friends for the first time and was greeted with a glass of red wine and was offered for us to have a degustation meal for a very good rate. All the food served to us were very delicious and tasty and the service was very good as well. All and all, would recommend the... More

We have been to this restaurant a couple of times, each time we have enjoyed the choices of dishes available, they have some interesting specials, the ambiance and atmosphere is good, could improve the lighting a bit so we could read the menu a bit easier however we always find something on the menu to please everyone, really enjoyed the...

This used to be one of our favourites, but it has recently changed hands and has lost a lot of its charm. The portions are unacceptably small, the food has become very basic, there is little attention to detail. The antipasto is nice, but on the mean side in terms of size, especially for the price. It just feels like... More

I was never a fan of Italian cousin in NZ. Pasta and pizza is something I do avoid, but this grad one deal did prove to me that Italian in Auckland is more than just some pasta or pizza. We had a four course degustation. The first course was a selection of deliciousness, which was an antipasti platter. The second... More

We had planned for some time to head here for dinner and finally managed to last night. Service here is a bit off putting. The very old school Italian waiter lacked warmth and as the place filled up he was joined on the floor by one of the chefs ( he was wearing his chef pants and apron and t-shirt)... More

Dragged into the city to try this place we were not too disappointed. A very pleasant waitress made the night, and the meals were nicely done. But, the portion size for two decent size males was on the small size, and we even commented the mains were the size of entrees. The ladies agreed probably Ok for them , but... More

We were lucky enough to be invited out for a celebration with friends. Gaetano and his team provided fabulous service and the most divine meal. It is as good as the best restaurants I have eaten at in Italy. We will go back. And take more people. Delicious!

An outstanding restaurant for a special occasion. Tastefully decorated with large family photos displayed on the walls, there is a real feel of bringing Italy to Auckland. The meals were superb with a number of specials adding to the extensive menu, and even variations to meet special diet requirements were all "no problem". All in all, a very reasonable priced...

Came on a Saturday night with no reservation and we were afraid we might be turned away but the owner was kind enough to make a place for us. We disagree about the other reviews of the owner. Maybe they just don't understand the Italian attitude. We thought he was very friendly and didn't look down on us even though... More
