Last time we visited wasn't very sucessful. Great garlic bread, the rest leaves a lot to be desired. I ordered the fillet steak but received another cut of meat, definately not fillet, served with deep-fried re-heated potato, and luke warm veges, and way overpriced! Daughter had cabonara, was oily as if the sauce had split (perhaps microwaved?), wife had pizza... More

Been to his place a few times now when back in NZ visiting family. Good Italian food, the garlic pizza bread is just as the Italians make it. Service is good and food served in a timely manner. There is an outdoor seating area as well, nice spot on a lovely summers night. The owner is always friendly and wants... More

We went along on a week night and sad to see we were the only ones there for the first hour or so but that was great for us as we had excellent,fast service and great food accompanied by a few Italian beers. Prices were a little higher than I expected and the cutlery and crockery were very tired but... More

This place used to be good .... although owned by a Middle eastern guy, his pizzas were pretty good. We went there last night and found that the owners had changed ... certainly the staff had! An Indian guy served us politely, and another non Italian was making the pizzas. I ordered a "marinara" .... cheese , tomato, ham, anchovies... More

Not much to look at from the outside but it is a classic Italian restaurant, The food is cooked in an open kitchen and (what I think) are Italian instructions flying in all directions. Just like being in a family restaurant in the middle of Italy. Food is truely excellent but the desserts are some what expensive.

Based on our visit in February I would not recommend dining at this restaurant. The restaurant was full, so much so that they had run out of menus ....and water glasses ! Needless to say the service was slow and the waiter was not attentive (probably because he was also making the pizzas !!!) The house wine was poor and... More
