I have dined at etrusco's heaps of times and it never disappoints me. In fact it's the only place I want to dine in whenever I'm in Dunedin. It's one of the best restaurants I've ever been to for value for money and an outstanding wine list. You have to go there when you are in Dunedin.

This is the place I come when I want to fell again in Southern Europe, great hospitality, atmosphere, and amazing food. I have tried different meals there and have never been upset. Staff always friendly and prices are good. I really recommend this place.

My wife and I recently dined at Etrusco and enjoyed it thoroughly. Everything came together - the cosy fire, excellent fare, friendly staff ( our waitress Ashleigh was delightful). The charming owner Meegan joined us for a chat in front of the fire and she and her family are clearly dedicated to keeping Etrusco the first class restaurant that it... More

I've eaten at the Etrusco on a number of trips to Dunedin, starting around 2001, and the food and service have always been great. This is a family run place (now in the second generation) and it shows. Kudos to the owners for so many great years.

Tried to make a telephone booking only to be told they were to busy to talk and I would have to ring back. Got turned away the time before because we didn't have a reservation. Left a bad taste in the mouth, wont be going back.

Traveling for work. Great food and service. The Farfalle al Cinghiale was superb. The place had a great vibe and the person playing the piano was a nice touch.

It always seems a bit unadventurous going back to the same restaurant when you're on holiday, but why go elsewhere when you've been to the Etrusco at The Savoy? The very spacious and attractive room filled up very quickly and the service on both nights - from Michael on Monday March 3rd, and a waitress whose name we didn't catch... More

Ordered a large pizza and got given a medium gluten free version of it then when I said something about it they went on about how I'm lucky that gluten free bases taste so good these days and didn't offer to do anything about it. Didn't apologise once, then made me pay for the large pizza I originally ordered (which... More

Atmosphere is great but can be noisy. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Food is great - esp the choice of choosing to share. Very Italian - Price very acceptable
