Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Not the most memorable Italian meal I have ever had. We had lasagna and Gorgonzola gnocchi, felt the portions were a little on the small side and the pasta did not have a Gorgonzola flavour at all, also thought the prices were a bit on...the steep side. The pastas were fresh and the quality was good, just not used to leaving an Italian hungry! If you are wanting a light meal the pastas were fine, if you are hungry I would suggest the pizzas, they looked a decent size and had the black coating on them that you get on good Italian pizzas. The wine menu was minimal and typical Italian tasting wine. it was busy, only small area inside and an add on outside area but not on a cold day.More

We didn't feel very welcome when we arrived as the hostess's mood was sullen. I had the mushroom pasta, which lacked mushrooms and some of the pasta was clumped together. However my wife enjoyed her vegetable lasagna. The waiter recommended the Italian chardonnay, which was...bland when compared to a Hawke's Bay one.More

Outstanding Italian dining experience! The flavors are rich and authentic, each dish beautifully presented. The service, with a warm Brazilian touch, made us feel incredibly welcome. A must-try for those seeking a delightful blend of Italian cuisine and Brazilian hospitality. 🤗

We dropped in for dinner after a six hour drive, just hoping for anything edible. We were blown away by the quality. We both had lasagne, I had the vegetable lasagna which was the best I have ever tasted and my husband had the beef...lasagna which he said was the best he had ever tasted - and he is not easy to please! We also had a green salad, something I get in order to eat something healthy, rather than because I like it - this one was delicious. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough, the decor is casual but the food is excellent.More

The best pasta ever! We visited here on a whim purely for the convenience to be able to easily drive and park, rather than driving into town. The carbonara and butter sage gnocchi are out of this world, the best we’ve ever had. We came...again 5 days later for the bolognese spaghetti and tomato basil gnocchi which was also delicious. Staff are super lovely and attentive too. The chocolate cake dessert is also sublime!More

This was a hidden treasure just a short walk from our hotel. We were able to get a table rather quickly, but it got very busy after we arrived. The food was outstanding. We had the pizza special of the day and that plus a...salad was a perfect dinner for us. It was one of the best pizzas I have ever had. And the service was impeccable.
