“gastronomic delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

So much for a lazy sunday night with a couple of Tapas. After several fantastic tapas we moved onto the rich and spicy wild pork ragu......not to be missed. We then finished off with home made tortellini...... Not to be beaten a Tiramisu some how found its way to our table and a sweet tooth was very satisfied. The whole Vangionis experience was first class

“A good night out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We ate at Vangioni's Trattoria on a Friday night having booked earlier in the afternoon; this was a good move as the place was pretty full. Despite the arrival of a large party, we were quickly shown to a table, drinks organised and orders taken. The food was outstanding; we had the Lamb Ragu and the Seafood Gnocchi both of which were delicious and perfectly prepared. Ambiance in the restaurant was very good and the staff, while relaxed and friendly, were always on hand to help when required. All in all an excellent and good value evening.

“Wild pork Italian-style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I was travelling on my own and felt really welcome in this Italian restaurant in beautiful Akaroa. I ordered a salad as a starter and the dressing was really fine -- definitely not factory-made. I then had wild pork ragu with pasta as my main course with a glass of local rosé. The pork was slow-cooked and extremely tasty -- probably laced with a bit of truffle oil. The waitresses were attentive and professional, and the rooms were much less noisy than another restaurant nearby where I had eaten the evening before. HIghly recommended.

“Good italian place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

The restaurant is set in a lovely little garden, and the waitresses very very friendly and efficient. The food we had was delicious, but not enough vegetarian options for those in need...
