One of the best in Tauranga

We come here for special occasions, and every time the service has been faultless, and the food fantastic. The black squid ink pasta is a firm favourite. Will definitely dine here again.

Lovely food and atmosphere, great staff who were regularly checking up on us. It was a Friday night and was quite busy but level of service still excellent.

Excellent freshly cooked meal. Attentive Italian waiters. Really enjoyed our anniversary meal. Obviously a very popular place as it was full early on a Wednesday night, so would definitely recommend booking in advance.

From the moment we entered we were greeted by warm and friendly staff. Throughout the whole experience the waiters were attentive, and completely on the ball. My husband and I are huge fans of Italian, however we often leave feeling we could have made the same meal for a fraction of the cost in our own kitchen. Not the case... More
