We dined here on a Saturday night without a booking but as the whole town was quite quiet, it did not matter. The restaurant is quite small and was busy but they managed to fit us in. There was only one woman (the owner) serving the tables but she managed very well and there were no huge delays with ordering... More

We ordered a steak each which came on a bed of kumara mash with seasonal vegetables and garlic butter. The steak was beautifully cooked but the mash was very watery and sloppy and the seasonal vegetables consisted of 8 beans and 1 mushroom which had been cut in 4. At $39.50 each we thought it was very poor value. For... More

Nice staff and food. Good device great outlook over the rec sports field. Eat inside or out. They need more customers as they are hidden away.

My partner and I went here for a birthday dinner during our weekend away. We arrived for our 6pm reservation and we're met by a rather cantankerous lady who seemed bothered to have to check the reservation book. She pointed to an area rather then a table and then on her return with menus said 'THAT table' in repose to... More

We visited Vangionis last night for a light meal. There were a few people dinning when we arrived at 8.30. But most left before our order of pizza arrived so there was little atmosphere for a Saturday night. When the pizza arrived it was not cooked and stodgy. It was sent back for crisping up. But this only made it... More

Left a message to book, nobody got back to me- should have been a warning sign. Pretty average - we dine out a lot , and cook A lot . We never complain and we just complain by not going back The wait staff asked if my wife's gluten free pizza was ok - the Base was inedible as it... More

The menu was small, but offered quality dishes. Often restaurants offer a huge variety, and quality is compromised. Vangionis Trattoria meets a perfect compromise - a selective menu offering local foods, to a high standard. There is a fully stocked bar with many local wines to chose from, but don't expect a cheap bar-meal here. Take your significant other, or... More

Admittedly it's off peak season on Akaroa however restaurant was still quite full when we arrived. Service was efficient, pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. We ordered two pizzas at 30 dollars each. At that price point we anticipated a couple of tasty and interesting artisan pizzas with varied toppings. What we got was austerity measures on a thin crust.... More

We booked our table at this restaurant thru Grab one so our meal was prepaid. Any extras would be paid by us.So far this experience was pleasant. What happened next was a nightmare. We requested water which came with a dead fly floating in it. Admittedly this was fixed with out fuss. Next we ordered wine from their list which... More

We have visited Vangioni's a number of times over the past few years and always had exceptional food and good service. So it was a shock to us and a massive disappointment to have such a poor experience when we went to Akaroa on Sunday (just to go to Vangioni's). Firstly, the beer my husband was poured was half 'head'... More
