I had heard great things about this place before so decided to try it out. I loved the eccentricty of it all, plenty to look at on the walls and the food was very tasty. The new owner was very friendly and added to the overall experience. He's making a few changes but I hope he doesn't go too far and lose the character of the place. It's like dining in a local Italian village restaurant....sort of. Great for a date, family meal or any occasion. I would definitely come back again and if I was a Tauranga resident it would be one of my go to restaurants. Good times!

This is a regular haunt for us esp after the movies on a Friday night. The Sicilian pizza is a knockout an combined withe the blu cheese gnocchi you can't do better. A volcanic hills Pinot at $36 was excellent value. They always have a good Pinot

Have not been able to fault the food, service fine, and BYO which often helps these days.
Handy to centre of town, though tucked away behind anothe restaurant on Cameron rd.
