The food was outstanding, Cesare Stella the owner and chef is very friendly and interested in his customers; he checked if we were happy with our meals both nights. The staff are lovely and easy-going, the restaurant has a great small-and-intimate friendly feel to it with Italian-decorations, the food itself is absolutely outstanding - fresh delicious flavours and perfect amounts for entrée and main and desserts; creamy risotto with generous amounts of prawns, scallops & fish, or calamari in freshly made tomato based sauce, or creamy chicken Lucia were our favourites. The tiramisu is delicious too. The Italians its a must to go to in Kerikeri!
