How good is this place. The pizzas are the best we've found in NZ. The ambience is great and the staff absolutely fantastic. So good, we keep coming back

We were so exciting to try this restaurant as the rating of it is so high. However, we were very very disappointed. The food there was ok, but you can definitely have something much better for that price. The staffs were very rude! That was the worst customer service I've ever had. Not only one staff has that bad attitude,... More

Not recommend any people to this one as they are rude, impatient and their food are terrible. The food doesn't worth the price.

Being both a cafe and specialty food shop made for an interesting and enjoyable morning visit. Loved the great variety of Mediterranean food to tempt and satisfy those who enjoy cooking and/or eating. The area is spacious and bright and all the staff are helpful and friendly. We enjoyed some very good coffee and biscuits in the sunny atrium setting.... More

Love everything about this place. Always fabulous food. The pizza are just like I have had in Italy. The salads are gorgeous, especially the gorgonzola and peach. House wine very good and reasonably priced. Lovely outside area, my little dog loved it.

Went for an early lunch and just got a table for 2 due to reservations. Managed to sit outside, which is a wonderful area on a sunny day. The food was very good. I had the Turkish Pide which is lamb kofte between two pita style breads with salad, humus and a lovely sweet spiced onion topping. Friend had the... More

Never failed yet with their fresh food and helpful friendly service. The food reinforces memories of real local mediterranean experiences. Staff helpful. Not cheap but value for money. On a sunny day just perfect.

Had an office lunch last week at this cafe. Twenty of us had a room to ourselves and we were seated around a large square table - great for a group. Pizza and pasta meals were delicious. Italian wine selection was good. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Hard to leave this venue without purchasing a treat from the food... More

3 of us had a thursday lunch. We did not have a booking but we were able to sit at a nice table in the sun. There were gluten free options. We tried the meatballs in chocolate sauce as an entree. Then had the terrine, ravioli and gorgonzola salad. The desserts were delicious.

Thank Kathryn H
