Service was good, we got there 6:01pm and still got the free garlic bread which is served for free only from 5-6pm. We loved the garlic bread, however, the main was just ok. I asked for a rocket salad, they came back saying they've run out of the rocket and that was only the beginning of the night. For desert had Amaretto coffee, a bit pricy for the size, but very good.

Even though the owners aren't Italian they have created an ambience and menu reminiscent of being in Italy at a village eatery. Great service, beautiful food. No wonder it is so popular...we always have to book if more than 2 of us...sometimes as a couple we manage to get in.

This is a typical (for New Zealand) Italian restaurant, the food is great, service is often a bit slow, as they're nearly always busy.
It's usually loud, so if you're hard of hearing probably not the best choice.
They have a good wine selection, and reasonable prices.

We went there as a group whilst trying to find a place that had room for 8 people after our original plan fell through. The only space available was a table outside. Being in the cold evening we were offered blankets and the opportunity to move inside when a table was free. The waitress was her first night and she got our crazy group. She provided great service as well as excellent banter. The food came promptly and was delicious. Having garlic bread that was a plate not the usual one you would expect. The meals were large, fresh and delicious.

Friendly service, fun atmosphere and great food. What more could you want! Will definitely go back for another sitting.
