“Amazing food and great Service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is our favourite BYO restaurant in Auckland. Its decor is very basixc but the food magic. Its been owner by 3 rothers for 20 years and the standards have never changed , The service is impeccable and so relaxed. It is busy no matter what night you go so book first. Dont expect anything fancy in the Decor its very simple and small but beautiful food at good prices. They do takeaway too

“Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

This is situated in the highland park mall and is well hidden if you don't know it is there.
The food is good and love going to this restaurant.
It has changed hands and is now owned by asian people which does seem strange as an italian restaurant. The service is good and price is reasonable.

“Nice Atmosphere and very popular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

We enjoyed this restaurant with friends, we found it busy which is a good sign, a few large groups were in the night we went which added to the atmosphere, the food was tasty, We had good service, we noticed that it was busy for takeaway food, you can take your own wine which is good, the menu is varied with something for everyone.
If I could fault anything it would be the table we were at was close to the till, hence people were back and forwards paying for takeaways, which when you are sitting and eating can be a bit of a nuisance.
But all in all we had a great night there and would go back again

“excellent italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

I had a birthday dinner there. Great food, atmosphere and excellent service!!! The prices are fairly reasonable, although the portion of the pasta entree is a bit small. The restaurant was suppose to be closed by 9 but the owner never came over to let us know, and let us stay there until we were ready to go. I really enjoyed my night there!!

“My Favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

The food here is fantastic, it is a modest and semi run down looking local Italian restaurant but my god do they make up for it in their food!

I have dined at "fancy" Italian restaurants and this place still takes the cake. The flavour is just impeccable and the servings are generous. I enjoy eating here more than expensive Italian restaurants. The food is definitely the most important part of the dining experience.
