Wow!! Went to the italians for a nice anniversary dinner, warm welcome, lovely waitresses that seem genuinely happy to greet you, shown to a nice table that had a great feel to it. Not a whole lot of room in the place but that adds to the experience in a way, cosy atmosphere, very italian.

Had a Chilli chicken starter which was out of this world, such a nice balance of flavours, lots of different spices, followed by the steak and mushrooms dish for mains which again had lots of different herbs and spices, lovely depth of flavours.
We have travelled the world and eaten in many Italian restaurants, some of which we still rave about years afterwards but to both of us this meal topped them all. All in all a perfect evening with fabulous food cooked with love. We were later in the evening on a busy night and many chefs will put out food that is ok, the chef here put out food that was incredible.

Hope you keep doing what you are doing, we will be back for sure, all the best.

Lovely little Italian restaurant on KeriKeri's main road. Set back so traffic isn't sa problem, and even if it was the food makes up for it. Absolutely great food. All freshly made and yout taste buds will explode! Try the garlic flatbread as a starte, c omes with a dip, I could eat that all night. Fabulous place.
