Great food and nice surroundings. The owner / chef had a fantastic restaurant at Red Beach. He has re-created that with even better food in Kerikeri.

Was a nice surprise and the menu gave plenty of choices. The food was first class and because it was generous we had to take some home which we... More

A great place to come and have a meal, its the friendly staff that appeals to me. Also fantastic food by a very good chef, is what makes it special, a small family run business and not too big. It's the second time I have visited this restaurant when I have been in Kerikeri, and I hope it will not... More

The Italians is a great place to dine. Wonderful healthy food with delicious flavours, plenty on the plate and a good blackboard wine list or if you wish, bring your own. This small intimate restaurant is a true family affair and as residents of Kerikeri, we are very fortunate to have it.

Had another incredible dinner with friends when we were in town. It was delicious - as always. The Italians never fail to deliver with fantastic food, which is awesome value for money. Yum, yum, yum. I always struggle to decided what to order as there are so many incredible options. Don't be fooled by the rather plain exterior, this place... More

Small, cosy restaurant. Parking out front is limited due to proximity to a round about but big supermarket car park a hop, skip and jump away so no problem. Winter night so it was cold out and therefore not many windows in the restaurant open so it really wasn't well ventilated...went home smelling of cooking smell from the kitchen which... More
