Di Vino is an authentic Italian bistro which meets the traditional 'minimalist' ingredient of the Italian culture perfectly. I recommend a pasta dish for anyone who visits this Bistro.

Since first going to this wonderful little place four months ago, I have been back several times, with different friends and work colleagues. Each time has been fabulous. The friendly personal service and excellent Italian food and wine makes this a real CBD treasure. Keep up the great work guys!

We shared a small antipasto, then we each had a fish puttanesca (terakihi for me and tuna for my friend - both excellent).... More

Stuck in Auckland on a business trip. Normally a visit to the closest restaurant delivers an average result. This place was fantastic. Great food and an authentic atmosphere and service. Could not fault the place. If you like Italian food then you must visit.
