Great spot to eat, upstairs to a noisy busy European bistro type atmosphere. Staff are very attentive upon arrival and make you welcome with a smile.

Most of the tables are good wherever you sit and the service is good from the start (or has been on the occasions i have been there) and a drink arrives fairly quickly.

The menu is interesting, well described with a good variety of choices. Prices not too bad given that it is a city centre in New Zealand when comparing with other cities.

Food arrived fairly timely for most of us (there were 5 of us) and by and large all arrived together which is a small achievement for an establishment of this size of tables.

Food was tasty, well seasoned and proportioned and we swapped quite a bit amongst ourselves agreeing it was worth swapping.

Getting the waitresses attention was easy enough and she was always pleased to help and take drinks orders enthusiastically. In all no question of a return here.

I recently went to Etrusco with a small group of friends for a celebration. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere was also top notch! I ordered a pasta dish, which was nice, but it was very simple! My friend got Verde, which I would highly recommend. I would go back here, but I wouldn't be in a huge rush.

An amazing meal as always, staff and service are fantastic, love the Savoy pizza, but my husband said the seafood (marinara) pasta was great too. We will be back....!

A small group of us celebrated a birthday at this fantastic restaurant. Service was outstanding, and how hard is that to find these days! Nothing was a bother, and the kiwi blokes who like kiwi tucker, loved the food. The waitress knew the menu backwards, was friendly as were all the staff. What more can I say other than we will be back. Can see why it is a favourite with one of our family. Make my day next time... you dont stock Rekorderlig cider! Do you know how popular this is and how many flavours it comes in... so many to go with your good food!

This was a delightful experience
from the animated wait staff to the quality of the food a great place to dine. No matter if you have the pizza or an Italian dish you will enjoy the experience, it is so good. A not to be missed Dunedin experience.
