I sat at the bar and had a great experience. The lovely bartender took care of me, he was so friendly and chatty which made dining alone less lonely. He made a lovely cocktail for me, gave me complimentary olives and as I had finished...my pasta offered me a complimentary Lemoncello. The food was great and I would definitely go back. TripAdvisor do need to update their address as they have moved down the road to 1 Courtenay Place.More

Went for dinner with 3 friends. Sadly the experience was not the best. Poor service and a long wait for average food. Wouldn’t recommend.

I turned up on my birthday and thought I had booked a table. Went to find the booking in my email and realized it was fully booked for that time. The waitor made sure he still found us a table. Fast service and the food...was absolutely lovely. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks for a lovely birthday meal.More

Probably the best pizza I have had EVER in NZ!! Authentic Italian dishes with a large dose of Italian hospitality. Loved every moment of our visit to this lovely restaurant. If you are visiting from out of town (as we were), you won't want to...leave Wellington before you book a table there. They were fully booked so they seated us at the bar. The bar tenders were very friendly and we just were made to feel very welcomed and at home.More

A welcoming friendly vibe with service that made our dining experience most enjoyable during our visit to Wellington. We joined my son & his partner, before attending at 21st nearby, seated outside beneath the warmth of the outdoor bar heater. Enjoy the flavoursome carbonara, generous...pizzas with a variety of choices. My personal favourite was the capriccosa pizza with a divinely matched Italian wine. Thank you!More

Went here for a couples dinner with two other couples. We had both vegetarian and non-veg pizza's and they were all great. Would definitely go here again soon. Loved the food and the atmosphere.

Amazing pizza and pasta, delicious treats for dessert. Make sure you order at least a pepperoni and tiramisu!

They are busy! Very popular and the reason is because they’re the best. All their pizza is fantastic. My favorite is Margherita Originale. Wood fired ovens, handmade tomato sauce that is the BEST. The arancini isn’t a crispy special treat. My husband’s favorite pasta is...the Bolognaise— mine is the Conchiglia verdura. The same homemade sauce (very fresh flavor).More

Omg! We have lived in NZ for 4 years and travelled to Wellington on holiday for the kids summer holidays. This place is authentic and warming. The food was incredible, we had a mix of garlic bread, Bruschetta, calzone and spaghetti bol…. Truly amazing, our...favourite restaurant in NZ! Great beer on tap too. A must try, you will not be disappointed!More

My son and I turned up on the Saturday before Christmas without a booking and were immediately given a table (they keep the outdoor ones free in case the weather isn’t nice but luckily for us it was!) The friendly waitress came to ask what...drinks we wanted and to see my vaccine pass. I realised that I had left my phone next door in the restaurant that we had booked but that didn’t do pizza - the owner/managed happily gave my son some paper and pencils whilst I zoomed next door to get it! We ordered our food and it came really quickly and was delicious - the kids pizza was a perfect size for my son. When it came to dessert my son ordered the gelato but wanted it in a cone. They don’t usually serve cones so we were about to order another dessert to share when the manger/owner said he would go across the road to his friend’s shop to get my son a cone for his gelato! He was so grateful that he used the paper and pencils to write a thank you note. A great meal with added extras that made it special - thank you!More

It's about a 10 minute walk depending on how far up cuba street you're walking from! however it is worth it for a good meal if you're in the mood for Italian !

AS others have said, booking early for NYE. May decide this is not a possibility on NYE. It is not a big place and very popular! They do deliver, but might want to get in touch and find out about NYE as it will be... More
