Rick is one of the Team at the Auckland Pullman Hotel and we wish we had taken his advice earlier during our stay in Auckland. He came up trumps with Baduzzi. We took a taxi as my wife is in a wheeelchair and we could not book a table and quite often wheelchairs and restaurants do not mix comfortably. No worries we were met at the door by David the manager and although the restaurant was buzzing he soon had us sat down at our table and being looked after. It was the begining of a very enjoyable and memorable dining experience that was in fact to be repeated a day later on our last day in Auckland. The menu was extensive along with the wine list, spoilt for choice. Our selections arrived beautifully prepared and presented I like to feel cosseted when dining out and this was 5star. Obviously food and beverages are what makes a meal out but any food offer memory can be ruined by the front of house team Not the case here at Baduzzi David and his team were brilliant we even enjoyed the theatre of being sat close to the Kitchen area. We would recommend this venue to one and all.

It does not take bookings but we were able to get a table on arrival. Menu is a take on Italian but some quirky dishes such as grayfish meatballs ? Very much a place to share dishes. A wide selection including some great vegetarian combinations.
Staff extremely friendly and efficient without being OTT.
A new favourite .

We had been recommended this restaurant by a friend so were keen to try it. Although they do not take bookings we were lucky to arrive at 7 & get a table for 2 by the window. The menu was extensive & it took us awhile to narrow down what we wanted. The wine menu was extensive & interesting. Whilst its an Italian restaurant the menu is really varied & has smaller plates available which is great. Our mains were both amazing & we shared a dessert. We felt this was very good value for the quality of the food & the staff were very friendly & efficient. Top marks - we will be back!!

Baduzzi continues to have a great "buzz" and is located in Wynyard Quarter. We started with the venison meatballs and they were superb. The linguine with clams was also excellent with very thin, tender, moist pasta. Suckling pig was a square block of fantastic pink pork with very little fat.....delicious! The eggplant parmigiana was not as impressive and the bread came out a bit burned from toasting on the grill. But the Mandoleto Nero d'Avola sicilian red wine was excellent. Do not miss the tiramisu dessert that comes in a cripsy dough cup.....it is an amazing, wonderful finish to the meal. Really worth treating yourself to a Baduzzi experience!

We love this place, we have never had a bad experience! The staff are attentive but laid back. The food is polished but not over the top. It is a must visit if you love food!
