One word...Nonno. Just get it, don't even question it. There is no place that I have ever had such a luscious and creamy pasta dish that could even come close to La Tosc's Nonno. If they could deliver to Canada I would have them sent regularly.

Hi there, thank you so much for taking the time to review my restaurant. Nonno is a real crowd pleaser, it's very unique and we're stoked that it's ours:) Whenever we have a new person start working for us that's usually all the eat for the first year! Once we get our La Toscana sauces bottled I'll be in touch for distribution in Canada ;) Thanks, Mark

Great pizza and pasta. Enjoyable, affordable in-dining. Reliable delivery service for which you don't pay any extra.

Visited 29th December 2012. A very busy Saturday night at this popular restaurant, but the staff were very organised and managed the queue well. I noticed the other restaurants were not at all busy, and you can see why. The food was super, the chocolate cake was fabulous, excellent grappa and great service.

Hi there, thank you so much for taking the time to review my restaurant. I was so thrilled with your review that I printed it out and put it on the board in the kitchen for all the staff to see! The 29th was one of our busiest nights of the year, and that night we had to have our junior staff looking after the front of house. To hear that they did such a great job is wonderful! Looking forward to seeing you on your next visit, Mark :)

Small place with quick service and decent menu and with many gluten free options for pasta and pizza. Our gluten free pizzas were smaller but the crust was unusually good!

Hi there, thank you so much for taking the time to review my restaurant. Fantastic to see that you enjoyed our GF bases. We are always looking for new ways to incorporate GF options into our menu, and now have GF beer available! Hope to see you on your next visit to Te Anau, Mark :)
