I find this restaurant very disappointing, aimed at youth. Although promoted as Italian there is little Italian about it in ambiance, music or a lot of the food. Been twice and disappointed each time.

Just needed a meal on a business trip. This was fine. Pretty much what you would expect for the price. Not stunning but nice.

Was hoping for some good italian food but this place fails to meet even home-cooked standards! My fettuccine was over cooked, and my partner's snapper was tasteless. Seriously, if the chef is not up to standard then you should not open a restaurant. It's just bad to serve crap food! The only saving grace is the friendly staff.

Great italian food, great menu, absolutely delicious and lively friendly atmosphere. Very busy, so it you get the chance to book I would recommend you do so. Try the nuvolari pasta dish, as your main course, great flavours and just the right size portion.

Nuvolari has great Pizza's, definitely some of the best around. We visited this restaurant on our last visit to Rotorua and the meals were just as good. Only disappointment was that we asked for an extra ingredient into our meal and we were advised that was not possible as the 'chef did not like changes'. Staff attended to the table several times checking everything was ok, good customer service.
