We were both working late so decided to try Farina what a c=great option, welcomed as if we were long lost family, 2 glasses of Chianti in our hands in minutes, chatting to the chef across the pass where we asked to sit at a sharing table/bench and the night started.
We had small plates to start the sardines were perfect, then shared the Duck Tortellini Toto which took us back to Florence, a great night great service and food and a menu that was born in Italy, there are some kiwi twists.

Their Italian "yum char" is out of this world, new and delicious flavours. The only drawback is that it is not cheap.

Went to try the new restaurant and was blown away

Delicious tasting plates with yummy food
Favourite was the sardines
