Enzo the owner was friendly and the food was superb. The place was packed on a Thursday. Thoroughly recommend you visit.

I grabbed myself a nice window seat in the almost empty restaurant early in the evening. I ordered a chianti straight away while I looked at the menu. The chianti came and then the proprietor approached with a bottle and asked me if I would like a prosecco. I accepted, while thinking- odd, my wines already here, but a nice... More

Ate here with a Road Scholar group. While the food was decent, the serving size was terribly small for the price. Glad we were not paying for it ourselves. This was one of those meals where you feel that you need to go somewhere else after you've finished eating there, still hungry. No menu items for a vegan ( my... More

It was a great experience to go to a restaurant were you were told in advance that the meal would take time to prepare..ie the risotto as it is made from scratch and would take 40 minutes. We had time to enjoy the street( we were sitting outside), each others company and to chat with the owners. The food was... More

Visited Trattoria alla Toscana on a Sunday evening with a large group and we had a long table outside on the footpath. There was a set menu with two fish dishes but as I don't eat fish the proprietor kindly organized two very delicious alternatives for me. The rest of the group thoroughly enjoyed their meals The atmosphere was wonderful... More

We tried booking at 6.30pm on a Saturday night a bit late having just got back from seeing the sights. Enzo (the proprietor) was very kind explaining he had no vacancies at the moment but if we'd like to come down out 8.00pm he would fit us in. True to his word on arrival we were ushered to a nice...

We'd had a big lunch so appreciated the small portions available of lasagne for dinner (and it was delicious). We booked and returned for our last night, having a beautiful bottle of wine too. Chicken marsala with fresh vegies was delicious. Not overly sauced - just right. Staff excellent - real characters! You can tell food is their passion. A... More

The food here is the best we've eaten all week. The Trattoria is no pizzeria or pasta restaurant. it does offer past alongside other Italian food. i started with the mussels, my husband with the calamari. both we delicious. The calamari were tender. The mussels came bathed in a tomato sauce and they were glorious. Mark had gnocchi with parmesan... More

This is the place in New Zealand where you'll succumb to romance and discover the tantalising flavours of Tuscany...Loving hand crafted pasta and salsa's.
Followed by classic Bistecta Fiorentina or maybe a fresh fish....Having operated for 19 years providing locals & tourists great service & quality food. We use local providers for meat , fish and vegetables and all pasta etc made on site.
