Casual - and quite noisy on our visit - but delighted we went. The food was good basic Italian with gluten free options. We had a bottle of wine we bought in for BYO but also thought the wine list was quite good.

We had a table of 4 and its a BYO restaurant. Two of our 4 guests had a bottle of wine as BYO because of this we were not allowed to order entrees as mains even 2 entrees as mains. The staff were unfriendly and rude would not return. The food was average.

Hi there
Sorry to hear that . I've ask the staff and they said wasn't rude on the answer they are just following the rules of a BYO. We are one of the few restaurants that accept BYO and we have to follow some rules about host responsibility. About food we have a really good reputation after years of trade and always improving our quality of service but we understand your disappointing and hopefully you understand our point. Thanks .

We started off with a shared garlic bread which was lovely if a little oily perhaps. Then my wife had the prawns and scallops and I had the chicken ravioli. Both were fantastic - tasty and filling and to finish off we shared a petit brulee.

We dropped in for some dessert. 3 of our group ordered the chocolate lava cakes which were over cooked, so not gooey inside.. they were also burnt on the outside and served with cream from a can. My brulee was served without the biscotti component as they had run out. We informed the waitress of our concerns when she cleared our plates. After we had paid we were apologised to and offered compensation for our next visit. Too little too late if you ask me.

There are several good Italian restaurants in Mt Maunganui to choose from. We chose Mamma Mia because we had previously tried their Tiramisu- which was the best we have ever tasted! This time we tried their Mare and Monti pasta, containing a mix of seafood and saucy pasta. And it was yummy yummy!!! Although it was spicy it represents the very best of Italian cuisine. Highly recommended.
