Well worth the trip on a wet cold day. To arrive at this Italian inspired haven was such a highlight. Food amazing, authentic. Bellissimo. Wonderful staff, service and ambience. The long lunch on Sundays must be fabulous. Thanks so much

The restaurant is within their vineyard. It is a good half an hours drive from the ferry but worthwhile! You need to book to assure that they can accommodate you, because they are very popular. I had the pleasure in going there 2 days in...More

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.
