Description: “We endeavour to use the best of New Zealand’s ingredients to create delicious Italian classics with a modern flare” – Caffe é Cucina. Managing Host & Director Slav Licina has undertaken a 20 year culinary journey of hands-on experience on his way to setting up his own place, Caffe é Cucina. His wealth of knowledge and natural sense on hospitality make for a welcoming and relaxed ambience. One of the most enduring lessons learnt through his culinary journey is that food & eating is an experience. Most Italians live to eat. The experience of sharing food with family & friends is one that is very sacred & should be cherished & remembered, which is why at Caffe ē Cucina we say, “when you’re here, you’re family…salute!”

We have been here twice. First time for tapas and they were delicious, the second for main meals. What yummy food and the service and staff were top notch. You will see us again soon!

This is our third visit to this restaurant and we have not been disappointed any time! The manager (owners?) are fabulously friendly and effusive - they make you feel like you are visiting their home! I love the way you have different settings to choose from for seating. There is a great range of food - from tapas to filet mignon. While not the best italian food I have EVER tasted, it is certainly good and we will be returning again!

we have dined here every week for over a year. They are so welcoming and always attentive. The food is of a high standard and they are willing to cater to dietry requirements. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Booked in advance..poor welcome..pointed to table.
Sat and waited for menus.
Had to try really hard to get menus
Then had to try to get someone's attention to ask if any specials were available. Sarcastic response.
Decided to leave... met with indifference when we left.
Food may be good, we didn't get to try, but based our decision to leave on the complete lack of service...Basil Fawlty would be proud.
Cannot recommend.

We had a lovely light lunch from the Tapas menu. The service was warm and friendly. Can't wait to go back for dinner!
