We have always wanted to dine at Delicious and went as a family group (4). Tortellini chefs special chicken excellent and Mandova sausage gnocchi with tomato sauce great.
Authentic quality pastas. Very attentive and helpful service. Thoroughly recommended.

The Service was good. Seating was too close. Wine was Overpriced (don't these restauranteurs know that New Zealanders now are aware of what good wines are before they price them !!) We were paying premium prices for just average wine. The food was nice yes but for what it was, yet again Way Overpriced. We won't be back.

It is three years since we visited Delicious.Because of the unbelievable rudeness of the owners then we said never again.
However we weakened- influenced by recent Tripadvisor reviews.
Bad mistake - while the food was was of a high standard the service let it down badly.
We had three staff attend us over the course of the evening however the if main waiter was not having his first bumbling night on the job he was doing a very good impersonation of it.Unfortunately he could not get anything right. We waited half an hour after being seated for the drinks order to be taken another 15 minutes for the meal order which was finally delivered piecemeal after an other 30 minutes. At this point we gave up - no offer of a drinks refill or desert.We paid our bill and left - very disappointing as we had taken friends and were embarrassed.We wont be back - no chance.

Went here with firenmds on a recommendation. The service was horrible, the wait staff incompetent and inattentive, it even took us 15 minutes to get a drinks order and menus, another half hour to get served, they forgot cutlery for all three courses. It is fairly cramped but witha busy vibe.
Food was ok, anti pasta good, main of pasta fair and a very average dessert. All of us said we would not be back.

I don't know where to begin to describe how intensely "delicious" (yes, pun intended) the main dish was!

Beetroot stuffed Ravioli topped with sage, butter and olive oil and I added some SnP! WOW, the flavours were rich and inviting at every DELICIOUS bite! I complimented the chef before leaving which I don't normally do unless I am WOW'd like this meal!

My only criticism is the lack of wine selection commensuate with meal prices. $48 was a decent price for the wine consumed, however, it would be nice to see some wines in at the $30 level!

Gabriello was our server and was most attentive! However, he poured the wine without letting me taste beforehand!

All in all, a very good meal in Grey Lynn! Thank you "Delicious"!
