Most Italian themed restaurants in this country disappoint for one reason or the other but not TaT. Authentic Italian food, excellent service and a good wine list all presented under the watchful eye of Enzo. Wanted to go back the next night but had to move on. Napier is spoiled.....

It was my first time trying Trattoria alla Toscana and a surprise for my boyfriends birthday so I rang and booked first and instead booking the table for the time I wanted I was told what time to come and was demanded to come at that time not very impressed. When we turned up we were running a few minutes... More

Five of us enjoyed a very good food experience in this restaurant. The host was very friendly, we all enjoyed our meal selections which were well presented and value for money. I recommend any Italian food lovers visiting Napier to take advantage of the centrally located restaurant.

Not teh usual fake italian, here the owner, Enzo, and the chef, Lorenzo, are true, born and raised, Italian guys. For italians: you can feel at home here, in every dish and chatting with both the two mentioned before, always happy to find so rare mother tongue speakers down there. Also a good way to purify our gut from the... More

Food spectacular, could not fault the flounder or the steak. Deserts divine. The owner was very friendly and the waitress from Portugal was a delight. Best night we have had out for a while.

We had a fabulous dinner here . The service and the food was excellent . It was cold Tuesday night in the middle of winter and we still needed to make a reservation. Most of the people in the restaurant were locals so obviously a good name .

What a great Italian gem in the heart of Napier. If you can't be in Italy, then this is the next best thing. Staff are delightful and authentic and so is the food.

After not being able to get in on Saturday evenings we have booked previously days in advance and had fabulous meals and service. This time on a cold wet Saturday we walked up but only just got in as it is not a large establishment. We like the 'family ownershjp" model and all staff seemed involved, knowledgeable and pleasant and... More

I don't know if it was because we had a GrabOne that we were disappointed with most of the meal. The first course a small pumpkin looked good but lacked flavour, the mixture inside was very runny with a few pieces of minced meat in it. The brussel sprout puree was very tasty. Main course three small dishes of food,... More
