Saturday night, full house, very very efficient staff and our meals were amazing. Nothing negative to say. Great sized meals, we had gelato for dessert and it is a must! It is busy so you must book ahead. A great med experience in the heart of Akaroa.

I went here on a recommendation, there were a few people there when we arrived, but it looked difficult to seat us, however throughout our meal it never filled up, so not sure what that was about. Food was ok, I had the fish of the day and my husband the risotto which I thought was really tasty. The service... More

The restaurant was buzzing, the staff were charming and service was good. The food was well cooked and presented. My pork meatball in broth starter was delicious. The portions were good, my husband's steak was cooked to perfection. Our last meal in NZ after a month, and one of the best.

We loved the sound of the menu and found that they close Mon and Tues, so made sure we had Wed dinner there. The whole meal was brilliant, and the service and atmosphere terrific. Well worth a visit.

Very tasty pizza in a warm and cosy restaurant. Prices are good and the staff are helpful and friendly. Really delicious bread. You can even buy some delicious vangionis pastry on Saturdays from the market which we really enjoyed. Pizza can be takeaway as well.

We have enjoyed wonderful meals on our 4 week trip around the South Island but the meal at Vangioni's was one of the best. Great service. Amazing food. Highly recommended.

We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday boy picked this restaurant, very warm decor and cosy cafe feel. Meals ordered were pizza and pasta .Maybe a bit expensive. Pizza could have been a bit over done as base so thin it did come out a bit chard, although the size was good leaving some overdone bits were a bit... More

This is probably the 4th time we have been to Vangioni's. We can highly recommend the food. Had a variety of tapas and the most delicious cheesecake for dessert on this occasion. My husband had the chocolate molten dessert which was amazing. Definitely not our last visit. Ambience is laid back informal style of eating. Staff are very friendly. Highly... More
