This is the place in New Zealand where you'll succumb to romance and discover the tantalising flavours of Tuscany...Loving hand crafted pasta and salsa's. Followed by classic Bistecta Fiorentina or maybe a fresh fish....Having operated for 19 years providing locals & tourists great service & quality food. We use local providers for meat , fish and vegetables and all pasta etc made on site.

We were made to feel welcome the moment we stepped through the door. Despite the fact the restaurant was full they found a way to seat us and also to give us special attention although they had two very large groups that evening. The food was out of this world!

Great food - recommending any of the chefs specials. Who knew Italians could cook such an amazing t-bone. This is definitely more than just a pizza and pasta restaurant. Awesome wine selection (local and Italian) topped off with very genuine personal service.

Food and Service were great. The pesto pasta was tasty and hot. Girlfriend did not like the tortellini with salsa but I think that was her mistake. Only negative was the price of the water. As we were sat down, we were asked if we wanted still or sparkling water. Not realising this would incur a ridiculous $10 charge we... More

We dined here on a Saturday evening. The boss managed to squeeze us in early even though they were fully booked and we weren't disappointed. The food was as good as in Tuscany and the service excellent. Several tables seemed to be regulars, as the staff knew them by name.

Reza and staff turn out the BEST of Italian cuisine on NZ's East Coast.... PERIOD. Lovingly prepared delicious food at fair prices served in tidy intimate space on Art Deco Emerson Street in NAPIER's Art Deco quarter. We love the pasta, steaks and insalatas. All menu items TOP quality. Highest recommendations.

The host was very welcoming and friendly. The food authentic Italian and very tastey (of course). Good atmosphere and a 20% off coupon for our next meal.

I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Napier. It is a family run restaurant, the food is delicious and the staff very friendly and competent. It is probably a little on the expensive side but the quality of the food reflects this. I would suggest making a reservation, we went on a Thursday night and it was full... More

We ate out at this lovely small family restaurant on a wet drizzly evening. From the initial very friendly welcome by the owner, the lovely white tables cloths and starched napkins, the great selection of italian wines and a most delicious bruschetta followed by mouth watering fillet steaks with sauces to die for, this was a wonderful evening dinner for...

Starter (mixed platter) was OK. Risotto stodgy and tasteless. Very expensive meal in an average setting. We felt rushed as we were going to a show and they knew the timing of it. We had more than enough time. Open fire (flat screen TV) is tacky and they insisted on keeping the door closed making it a sauna. Where is... More
