Have been a couple of times for family events and not a place I would visit out of choice. Meal was just ok and my fish was overcooked and dry. Disappointed they had no 0% beer. Toilets are disgusting..

Went out for a family meal out. Service and starters were excellent but the pizzas were pretty terrible. Thick and undercooked bases and far too much cheese. Rigatoni was also fairly tasteless.

Unsure of which Italian restaurant to go to. We were staying at the Tainui Hotel where two Italian restaurants were opposite but neither offered veal. Busy Saturday night after lockdown. The waiting staff were attentive and good at their jobs. Mussell entree was tasty. Veal was primo and hubby had a steak. Done perfectly. Nice bottle of Chianti. The tiramisu looked ordinary in presentation but digging spoon in flavors came out. Only thing I would have any complaint about is that the toilets that are shared with other premises were dirty. Nothing to do with the food though. Excellent.

With its modern Italian décor the venue shows a classy Italy atmosphere with a hint of western influence. Which makes this restaurant another nice place to take your partner out on a date night. The staff have always been helpful, courteous and professional. Which always make any dinning experiences comfortable. We have been here a few times now and have always left satisfied with our meals and dining experience. Very nice Italian restaurant. Will be dinning here again.
