Was a busy night as they were almost full- felt very unwelcome by staff who we felt we were annoying them by being there. Minimal interaction and a snarky attitude. Food was okay but didn’t really understand the menu as no one helped with it.

We enjoyed the eggplant parmigiana, pumpkin rice roll, lamb, risotto, asparagus tapa, hot bread and suggested red wine. Friendly waiter from Pittsburgh was attentive. 112 NZ dollars. But with exchange rate- $80. It was really good eating.
