What can I say, still a top notch place to dine in Napier. Very friendly staff that help you with any issues. Even to make you dishes not on the menu! We had a table of 7, all of our needs were met or exceeded. Always having our drinks topped up and meals delivered very quickly for a table our... More

One of the best Italian meals I have had anywhere, including Italy. Pasta was fresh and cooked to perfection and the chicken in a creamy sauce was excellent. Decided to have roast potatoes. They were perfection. Staff were friendly and all in all a great experience. My friend had lasagne and was equally happy!

We'd visited a couple of times previously (the last time 2 years ago) and knew what to expect - no pizzas, more up market than the quintessential gingham tablecloth variety. Good food, good service, good wine list.

We visited Trattoria alla Toscana for the first time with a group of friends, six people in total. We had a fantastic night out and all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Our group tried three different pasta dishes and they were incredible. The ravioli was soft and melted in my mouth. Desserts were devine. The owners were our hosts for the... More

Have walked past many times over the years when it on business in Napier and wondered how good it was. Last night was the first time I'd walked past in the evening and we decided to stop in for a meal. I will never regret that decision......ever! Wifey loved the pasta and the 600gm T bone was superb, although not... More

On arrival our host immediately showed us to our table and offered a glass of Prosecco (Italian sparkling white wine). We proceeded to browse the menu and made our choices. We were offered bottle sparkling water, bottled water or tap water - we chose the bottled sparkling water ($10) which happened to be Italian. We ordered some garlic bread (not... More

This is the place in New Zealand where you'll succumb to romance and discover the tantalising flavours of Tuscany...Loving hand crafted pasta and salsa's.
Followed by classic Bistecta Fiorentina or maybe a fresh fish....Having operated for 19 years providing locals & tourists great service & quality food. We use local providers for meat , fish and vegetables and all pasta etc made on site.
