Lovely fresh pasta dishes. We enjoyed their ricotta and spinach ravioli with burnt butter and sage sauce and their gnocchi with pesto sauce. I asked for fettuccine with mushrooms instead of chicken as I'm vegetarian. They made it for me without a problem though I preferred the other two dishes!

Wow - the best Tuscan cuisine ever. A treat for the senses and palate. Impeccable service, faultless meal and wine. The only disappointment - I could not buy the Limoncello to take away - it is a homemade family recipe and to die for. Wonderful location and ambiance.

I had a lovely dinner. Pumpkin soup with croutons, and mussels in a light tomato sauce. Anzo, I think the owner, had "the touch" when it comes to food. Several people recommended this place, and I was delighted.

Thank You for your visit. We enjoy that we can look after our guests as if they are dining in our home. Maybe that is why we have been in business over 20 years now in Napier as Trattoria alla Toscana. More

As soon as our small group entered this establishment we should have known to walk straight out, unwelcoming, no atmosphere and absolutely disgusting food. Garlic bread soaking in greasy butter,raw lamb having to be returned,beef cheek tough as old boots had been slow cooked for 12 hours and was told I wouldn't need a knife to cut it! The fish... More

I had the melt in your mouth, cooked to perfection eye filet with mushrooms, and my partner had the fish of day with purée. Both were divine. Cooked to perfection. My Choc fondant was sublime. And my partners Choc mousse was seriously out of this world. Best I've had in my entire life. And I don't say that lightly. Service... More

After completing the Hawkes Bay marathon today my friends and I went to this restaurant on a recommendation from a local. We were very excited to be going to an Italian restaurant. On arrival staff were attentive and took us to our table. We ordered wine and garlic bread to start followed by 3 mains. The garlic bread was dripping... More

Thank you for your review we would like to apologise if you felt the food was not up to the standard you expected every person is entitled to their unrestricted judgment. However truthfully ,maybe after your marathon run it might of been more to your exhaustion, than the actual standard of the food served to yourself & your friends. What... More

We were trying to decide where to eat in Napier. We decided on Italian so we went to this place. The owner is from northern Italy so that was a good start. I ordered some garlic bread followed by lasagna. The bread was very good and when the lasagna came I was anticipating a good meal. It was great! This... 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.
