Small, quiet and great food. This is not your typical bustling, noisy eatery with salamis draped over the shelves.it is pared back, almost like a diner.Food is comfort Italian inspired with a kiwi edge. Fish soup
Lamb shanks ,chicken livers etc. Love it. Impeccable service.

Overall a great restaurant. Right in the centre of town and with a nice atmosphere and very attentive, friendly staff. We had Zuppa di pesce (soup), lovely fresh seafood and perfectly seasoned. And the gnocchi with blue cheese and walnuts was amazing, really light, and could tell it had just been cooked and hadn't been sitting around. For dessert we had the Tiramasu and apple cake, both absolutely delicious. Can't wait to go back!!

Lovely gnocchi with blue cheese & walnuts, great grouper, wonderful chicken Marsala,& delish ravioli. Wonderful restaurant within Nelson city for a group or , if weather permits, outside under the heaters. Also ok for an intimate dinner for 2...we had a great meal, all 9 of us, & the charming older handsome man who took care of us was the best!!!
And the wait staff was attentive...

So there is no need to try anywhere else. The pastas are great. The gnocchi with porcini sauce can easily become a regular favourite dish. Good lunch menu too. Great value true Italian cuisine in Nelson! Must make that dinner reservation before we leave.

My wife and I visit Italy often ( but not often enough......) and aside from a few eateries in Portofino and Taoromina, this restaurant is as good as any.The menu offers Fantastic pasta combined with beautiful sauces as well as traditional italian cuisine.
We had a luncheon special ($16NZ) of Linguine in pesto that was AMAZING!! Easily the best I have had (other than my wife's of course)..........OH and it INCLUDED a glass of white italian wine.
Simply unbeatable value and quality in a nice outdoor environment accompanied by pleasant and efficient service.
