The lake end of Tutanekai Street has become the eating precinct of Rotorua, and is "wall to wall" with restaurants. It was 7 Degrees Celcius this evening as we went from restaurant to restaurant, and we chose this one because the menu looked interesting, and it seemed warm and inviting inside.
The staff were professionally dressed, and very friendly and attentive. We sat on padded, tall bar stools at a table beside the fire - cosy! Warm Italian breads with dips was a nice starter. I had the stuffed pork, and my wife had Cannelloni and we shared a delicious side of hot chunky, crisp potato chips - the food was very tasty and well presented. We had a good rough bottle of Italian Chianti with the meal, a wine we had not drunk for years, but it was fun. We each had dessert, me the sticky date and fig pudding with caramel sauce and pannacotta for my wife. Total bill was $119 which we felt was good value.
We were very pleased we chose Nuvolari, and enjoyed our experience.

A lovely setting with mismatched wood tables and candles and soaring ceilings, and wonderfully thin crusted pizzas. That and a bottle of good NZ wine and we were thoroughly charmed.

Had a lovely meal here with friends on a busy saturday night. Had a seafood platter (cold) which had a great mix of seafood including prawns, mussels, salmon, herrings etc. Then had a salmon main, which was perfectly cooked. Service was fast, friendly, and they kept up with drinks and clearing the table when needed. Can definitely recommend this place for great food.

It was not easy to find a good restaurant just looking at the menus on the sidewalks. We were pleased to find this place. It was well patronized and deservedly so. Pasta dishes were all under $20.- and the mains were all around $30.-. The food was delicious, good choice of wine and good ambiance. The service was fast. We had a good night.
