“Nice Dinner”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Have been here twice. Once when it was Luciano's and now as La Voglia. Easy location as was staying across the road at the Crowne Plaza. Shared the garlic pizza for an entree and the rigatoni bolognese for the main. Was very nice and filling! Only complaint would be that it does take a little time for the food to come out but the staff are nice and polite and I think it is reasonably priced.

“Average at Best”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Of our 10 nights in New Zealand, this was by far our worst dining experience. The entrees were good, but the main course was very average. The service was poor, and the wait for our meals was excessive.

“Terrible Food”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

The food at this restaurant really was terrible. My main complaint is that the ingredients were cheap and tasteless.

I ordered the peperoni pizza. The base was soggy, the peperoni was sparse and the olives were of the plastic processed thinnly cut variety that come from huge commercial tins. The blue cheese in the pumpkin salad was equally cheap tasting.

The food was far from authentic and I dont know how they think they can get away with using inferior products.

You would have better "Italian" food if you defrosted a McCain frozen pizza and heated a jar or Dolmio. Avoid at all costs.

“Bad atmosphere”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

we walked in and were given a table, but had a small miss communication with the wait staff, however no one attempted to right the wrong until we were halfway out the door. Lacking atmosphere, not a nice buzz, wont be going back.

“Good Italian Food”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We stopped here for dinner on our first night, attracted by an interesting menu. We were warmly welcomed and service was good. The food was excellent and there was a good selection of wines.
We would visit again.
