Had a work dinner here and really enjoyed it. The decor isnt flash, and looks very tired (picture marks on walls etc) but the food was very good. Great place to catch up for dinner with friends but dont go with high expectations or you wil lbe dissapointed. The resturant area gets very loud, we were one of about 3/4... More

Enjoyed our meal cannelloni and lamb shank preceded by beer battered chips. Waitress was attentive, efficient and friendly. Very few diners on this Sunday night- mind you it was cold! Went to use my entertainment card to be told that all sorts of things were not covered by that- when clearly they should been. Will be contacting Entertainment card on... More

This is more for the gastronomic uneducated or for those who have not visited Italy. Lacks the taste of Italy. Waiters did function and not knowledgeable of the menu

We thought we would enjoy a meal out and tried Amphora Restaurant. We will never ever return to this restaurant. Good Points: The service was good. My dinner was good. I had Farfalle Alla Trapanese pasta entre size (as a main) and i had a rocket and parmesan salad on the side. Bad Points: My partners dinner was TERRIBLE! He... More

I've been here a few times before and the food never disappoints me but then again it never amazes me. The flavors are more western compared to Italian, but that's a common thing I have found in kiwi Italian restaurants. I had the cannelloni, just in entree size. Usually I don't eat a lot and will just get the smaller... More

Amphora in Botany Junction - near Celsuis My wife took me here for dinner as we have never tried it, and it had an Italian theme to it. We were greeted at the door, and shown to our table. Menus and drink menu followed. A good variety of food to choose from, and a blackboard special too. Most food groups... More

A handy place to pop into and meet friends on the way home and have a nice meal. The service was very good, as it was the last time I went too. Some of the food was a bit spicy for me but I should have asked more questions.

An hour wait for Mains. Husband had to request a glass for his beer-older men don't like drinking from the bottle in a reasonably upmarket establishment. Steak was ok even if portion a little small -hapuka was a little dry. $10 corkage per bottle seems a bit steep. Not a place I'll be hurrying back to. No cannelloni @ 7... More

We didn't book but it was surprisingly busy for a Tuesday evening. I was celebrating a birthday. We shared a platter which was very yummy, the trouble with platters there is never enough bread! We both chose chicken dishes. Very generous portion sizes and delicious. Nice service. They are currently renovating as you could see the outline of the missing... More

We found the staff very helpful, as we wanted to change our table as the original one was right beside the door and the breeze was a little cool. No problem at all. The spinach and Ricotta dumplings and the Ham soup entrees were lovely as were the main meals. The only drawback was having to pay extra for potatoes/veges/salad.... More
