“Fantastic Pasta and Pizza with great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

I've eaten here twice in two weeks - both led by someone from Dunedin taking a group to a "fab late night place". The first group was after a business seminar which finished late with the group of about 12 organizers and speakers looking for somewhere to go for a late supper. Although we arrived at 10pm, the place was buzzing with people in groups having drinks, dinner of chatting over coffee. New people kept arriving despite the late hour. The service was fast and efficient, food was good home style pasta and pizza at very reasonable prices. Our second group was much bigger - and a little better planned with arrangements made with Fred earlier. Once again we had fantastic service despite a busy Friday night crowd in the restaurant. The food is simple - no grills or roasts - just pasta and pizza with nice simple salads. We stayed a little late, well past other diners having left, but no objections from the staff to our late night. Highly recommended as one of the best casual dining places in Dunedin.

“Fabulous fun place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Great family run restaurant with real ties to Italy. Pasta, Pizza and salad - great food but the owners make the whole experience a fun night out. If you are lucky you may end up with free Lemincello to finish the evening

“Good eating”

Consistently good Italian food. Reasonable range on menu and all well priced. Good range of wines available. Can get busy so best to book at weekends.

“Huge place, food not too bad.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

It isn't my favourite place but that is due to the cavernous space. I feel the cold and have been cold here most times I have been. But the food is very nice and the staff are attentive. It is a lovely space in an old building - if you like that sort of thing which I do.
