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

Eagerly anticipated a nice Italian meal, and we were fortunate enough to secure a table immediately despite not making a reservation on a Friday night. Menu looked nice, however the prices were exorbitant. We both ordered Lasagna, upsized for an additional $8 each, making it a $30+ main. To make it worse, the lasagna included no sides, compelling us to... More

Our host was lovely and quickly had us seated by the heater with a glass of prosecco on a cold wet Napier evening. There were lots of tempting items on the menu. The flavour combinations in the entrées we chose were delicious (we had the carpaccio and the squid) and the mains were beautifully cooked and presented. The ossobuco was... More

We ate dinner here the night before we ran the Hawkes Bay Marathon and the food was amazing. The marinated snapper entree was so delicious and the gnocchi and ravioli were mouth-wateringly great! The tiramisu was heavenly and the service was fantastic! Quaint, beautifully decorated and very friendly staff. Also, very popular so you must make a booking.

The food was great,not big eaters, so we shared an entree, and each had a main, everything was delicious and, I believe, authentic Italian. The wine was good and reasonably priced. The owner was friendly, knowledgeable, and recognized us several days late in the street. Would recommend, only thing for visitors is one way street, check it out first.

Originally my friends and I had gone elsewhere for dinner but left after being treated poorly. We decided to try our luck at Trattoria alla Toscana instead and we are so glad we did! The owners are just so lovely and treated us as if we were old friends. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and felt warm and welcoming.... 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.
