As always friendly reception and atmosphere. A great menu, enough choice to meet anyone's palate without being too complicated. Food cooked to perfection, a true Italian experience. Not cheap but the bank was not broken. We will go back soon.

We went here only because it was one of the few places open that day. The Italian selections were limited and expensive. We finally ordered and eventually it came. In the meantime we drank lots of water. The meat was not done properly but service...More
Not traditional Italian food that this Italian American is used to eating...the pizza was ok, the other three meals in our party were pretty bad. Not many restaurants in Turangi, but this was not a good choice for our party of four. Pretty dissapointed...the service...More
