“Very Disappointed.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

If you are fast food lover, food at A Little Italy is maybe nice but looking for quality food, should not go there. Very disappointed. Pasta was taste like re-boiled and sauce was re-heated.
Over-priced for this quality of food. This was my first time and last time.

“A Pleasant restaurant that we found”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

A little restaurant we found while walking back to our hotel. The best calzone I ever had, wonderful crust and really stuffed full. The spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce was delicious. A glass of wine completed our meal which was a fairly reasonable price for NZ. We had a pleasant conversation with the owner. Would definitely recommend this restaurant as it is near the tower and bunge jump so it is conveniently located.

“Tasty food at a good price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We had been here a number of years a go and decided to go back to see if it was the same. It was reasonably busy and we were seated promptly. The food was nice for the price. The pasta siciliana was very tasty. All washed down with a bottle of chianti. A pleasant evening all round. We were seated at a table under the stairs which smelt a little musty and the little curtain beside us could have done with a clean. You sit quite close to others which is fine by us - except when it was three 15 year old girls trying to be sophisticated - and spent their time giggling and picking pieces out of their meal because they don't like this and that. However ... overall a good experience.

“bellissimo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I have been coming to A Little Italy for over 12 years. Use to live in the area but now bring friends when ever in town.
I love the homely feel, the music, little booths , classic Italian food.
Reasonably priced for central Auckland, great location.
The service is friendly and the owner and chef have kept up the traditional feel for over 20 years now.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Having read the reviews on trip advisor we were really looking forward to this experience. This is the first time we have been disappointed having taken careful note of other's experiences. Food was bland - service was very average - my wife, two children [aged 10 and 16] and myself all agreed - we swapped notes. We wouldn't go back a second time.
