How they manage to produce absolutely excellent, true Italian meals in the middle of Waiheke Island remains a mystery, but they certainly produce the best in food and service. If you are on the island, do not miss this one. Everything is done to perfection,...More

Poderi Crisci is a very authentic Italian restaurant - more like being invited into their home. The setting, the staff and the food are fantastic and conducive to a relaxing, laid back experience. A little piece of Italy on Waiheke.

WelcomePoderi Crisci Vineyard and Winery, set in a stunning amphitheatre surrounded by vines and olive trees, has fast become the quintessence of what in Italy is called: Agroturismo. Located 30 minutes from Matiatia in Awaawaroa Bay, Poderi Crisci occupies 7.7 hectares of north-facing slopes in the heart of Waiheke’s unique wine growing microclimate. The narrow rocky strip underlying Poderi Crisci is believed to be 30 million years older than the rest of the Island, boasting soil criss-crossed with mineralised veins. For four generations the Crisci family has been immersed in food and wine, Antonio born and raised in Napoli came to NZ in early 1990 and established Toto Restaurant in Nelson Street . With his partner Vivienne Farnell they opened Non Solo Pizza, an institution in Parnell in 1997 and Bar Vino in 2009.
