The blue cheese fettucine dish is superb and also the Carbonara fettucine is delicious and is always hard to decide which one to have. The garlic mussels grilled with cheese are mouth watering. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly.

Family meal for 4 to celebrate a birthday. Great service, friendly and unpretentious. Eye fillet was cooked exactly to order and meltingly tender as was the lamb. Pastas were generous and delicious. We are never disappointed with the food here. Keep up the great job.

All I can say,think or dream about is the veal masala from here, had it many times with a few subtle differences and always incredible. Best kept secret in Rotorua

The whole experience was very good. I had the mushroom and chorizo risotto and my partner had the special of snapper. Both meals were excellent. The service was friendly and attentive. Would thoroughly recommend the restaurant. Well worth walking away from the Eat Street places.
