“Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

This was our second visit to this restaurant. The Scottish proprietor greeted us with her usual warm friendliness. This place is nicely fitted out, is spotlessly clean, and the food is generous and of a high standard. Our group had chicken wraps, mushrooms on toast and baked potato. We shared a rhubarb crumble for dessert. All were good.They do way better than mant places in bigger towns. This place will become a regular for us, and I look forward to dinner as the menu looked superb.

“You Have to Try the Rice Pudding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

We had a very nice dinner, with excellent service and friendly conversation from Sheena.

But the standout item for me was the dessert of rice pudding with tempura banana and tempura dates.

Recommended.

“Lovely lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

After walking up to lookout and swimming at the pools we needed somewhere for lunch. Very good service and great pizza for four hungry people. Hostess was helpful and attempted to get meals for the kids out quickly.

“Will return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

We were passing through Te Aroha and thought we'd try Berlusconi for a late lunch. Only one other group in the restaurant, so we were not sure what to expect. However, our lunch was very tasty. When I ordered a pizza for myself I was warned 'they are huge'. And they are - easily can feed two people. I liked the look of the evening meal menu, so hope to return for a special meal there soon.

“Very pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This little restaurant on the main street of town gave us a very pleasant surprise with good food at reasonable prices. We weren't expecting much when we walked in for lunch, but were very happy with the choices and the result.
