Very good for what we had. Risotto with mushrooms and green vegetables and prawns. Split a salad. Restaurant was very loud, but clean and service was very good. Pricing was a bit high, but good top end Italian restaurant.

Our meals were superb, the wine list provided a good range, and a great selection of digestifs! The proprietor visited and chatted at all the tables, and was personable, knowledgeable and entertaining. We will definitely be back. We particularly recommend this restaurant for seafood lovers.

The food was cooked fresh to order. I had the seafood risotto and it was the best I've ever had. I was in a group of 5 adults one with a requirement for vegetarian and gluten free, no problem the waiter suggested a few options and they made a special risotto. Our whole party enjoyed the food. If I lived... More

One of our favourite restaurants and our choice for entertaining guests last night from Italy. The menu has a good range of classic dishes and the wine list also has a good range of Italian wines plus some New Zealand. Mine host was away and we felt the food was not quite up to its normal excellent level, however all... More

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.
