This Italian restaurant is just awesome. The pizzas are wonderful and desserts are to die for. Must have the Tiramisu of course. The service is truly Italian. Friendly, jolly and very welcoming. They made my family's evening one to remember. A true must !

We had 2 amazing meals here whilst in Kaikoura. Seriously top class food with great service and a good atmosphere. Highly recommend this restaurant and would eat there again any time.

Had great meal here. Not large menu but acceptable . Meals were fresh and light without heavy sauces. Staff really friendly but not intrusive. Great place to visit in Kaikoura would definitely go back

If you stay in kaikoura then you have to try this Italian restaurant. Run by Ruth and her son (the chef), we ate in here for lunch one day and in the evening the next.

For lunch we both ordered different pizza's and they were as good as if they had been made in Italy. Large pizza on more traditional thin Italian base, meaning that you tasted the flavours of the toppings. Very reasonably priced.

This evening we ordered the two specials, a fish main and a beef skewer main and honestly the tastes were exceptional. Among the best food we have experienced on our trip to New Zealand so far. We ate in other places in kaikoura too but this is by far the gem in this beautiful seaside town.

The owner Ruth is a wonderful friendly lady who is genuinely interested in her customers and truly welcomes you like a long term friend. The waitresses are also lovely and attentive. And her son is a very talented chef.

Don't pass this restaurant by. Absolutely worth a visit. Should be number 1 on trip adviser.
