The rolling hills opened up and you enter Poderi Crisci, what a gorgeous vineyard. We were greeted as we approached the restaurant and from that moment on, treated like we were the only people there. The entire staff ensured we were settled, feed well and...More

A long Sunday lunch in beautiful surroundings... just the ticket! The degustation food was wonderful and dietary needs were seemlessly catered for. Our guest didn't eat garlic and the kitchen were so kind to make adjustments all the way through. The only downside is that...More

My husband and I had lunch here today. We had been told by many friends it was definitely worth eating here and it did not disappoint. We both had the lamb so I can only comment on this meal but it was excellent and everything...More

enjoyed a long lazy sunday lunch on a cold and windy day. Perfect, as was the Chardonnay! Located in a very remote part of Waiheke Island so your own transport is a good idea.

Stopped by for a casual drink. Beautiful setting and nice atmosphere with a great authentic traditional Italian feel. The staff all looked and sounded Italian which added to the character of the place. Will go back next time for a meal.

Stopped for a lazy long lunch, lovely setting, the wine was not so much to my taste, the staff could have explained the process of the lunch a little more, there were no wine recommendations. The food was good, left there feeling very full.

​We celebrated a wonderful birthday dinner at Poderi Crisci. We ordered the degustation meal with wine pairings (NZ $170) from their vineyards and it did not disappoint - our favorites being the sorbet and the Burratina Affumicatta. We really appreciated the pairings of their own...More

WelcomePoderi Crisci Vineyard and Winery, set in a stunning amphitheatre surrounded by vines and olive trees, has fast become the quintessence of what in Italy is called: Agroturismo. Located 30 minutes from Matiatia in Awaawaroa Bay, Poderi Crisci occupies 7.7 hectares of north-facing slopes in the heart of Waiheke’s unique wine growing microclimate. The narrow rocky strip underlying Poderi Crisci is believed to be 30 million years older than the rest of the Island, boasting soil criss-crossed with mineralised veins. For four generations the Crisci family has been immersed in food and wine, Antonio born and raised in Napoli came to NZ in early 1990 and established Toto Restaurant in Nelson Street . With his partner Vivienne Farnell they opened Non Solo Pizza, an institution in Parnell in 1997 and Bar Vino in 2009.
