This Restaurant was recommended by Staff at the Hakka Hotel. We could not be more pleased, very appetizing menu, excellent food artistically presented and friendly, knowledgeable service. Possibly one of our Dining highlights in Auckland

Bruschetta was awesome. Meatballs and spaghetti were great (fiancée loves the meatballs...), as was brisket ragú. There was a long wait due to a large group, but the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Great staff and atmosphere at this busy local restaurant. It’s wasn’t a planned destination on our walk up K road but I’m pleased we stopped. The service was excellent and the rustic style Italian food very good and not over priced. I’d definitely go again

Food and drink was ok and the service was fine. However it was quite expensive for smallish portions of tapas and the wine seemed overpriced. K'Road is a bit out of the centre and this place for us wasn't worth the walk. However it has...More
