Reached Queenstown this afternoon, looking for late lunch and found this Italian restaurant at the Wharf at 4:30pm. The waiter is very friendly and attentive, he informed us that all the Pizzas on the menu are for $15 only from 4:30 to 6pm. So we ordered Mediterranean Pizza & Mushroom Spinach Pizza as we are Vegetarian, and a Gnocchi Carbonara... More

This is a very friendly reasonably priced restaurant in Queenstown. It was busy but we arrived a little later than the rush, 8 p.m. so we were seated immediately. Service was helpful, engaging and friendly. A down side of eating later is that the daily special may be sold out....the place is that popular. The quality of the food was... More

If you're down on the wharf, this is a really nice restaurant for dinner. It gets busy early so go early and/or put your name in and walk around the area. There is indoor seating in a pleasant atmosphere. Or outdoor bistro style seating in a covered area which is very nice - great for people watching. There is a... More

Started with glass of NZ Pinot Gris and an entree of bruschetta. Main courses of King Prawn Linguine and Braised Bolognese. Both delicious however the bolognese could have done with some more cheese. Very meaty.

We ate here using the deal of $15 pizza or spaghetti bolognese at 4:30-6pm. It is great value and the food was delicious.

Great Italian food and terrific service. Started with our usual ciabatta along with wine ( Main Divide Merlot/Cabernet ). My wife had prawn linguine and I decided to try squid ink fettucine. Both were very good but I had a tough time getting over the squid ink making the fettucine black. It also made it a little chewy but it... More

We wandered around looking for somewhere to eat dinner and came accross this gem. The Italian food is outstanding, just as good as in Italy. I had the gnocchi and they were the best I have eaten in many years. The service was friendly and great. We'll be back :-)

We were really just wandering around all the wonderful shops and restaurants down by the water and when I saw this place I remembered that it had good reviews. We were so glad we stopped. The service was so friendly and attentive. One of the early bird specials was spaghetti bolognese which my husband had and I had the linguine... More

We stopped here by chance walking through the cafe area of Queenstown down near the wharf and jetties. The heavily accented waiter asked us to wait a moment and found a table outside which we preferred as the inside was busy and a little noisy. I asked where he was from in Italy and who made the Spaghetti Bolognese, boring... More
