Delicious food and fantastic service. Two of us for dinner. The calamari and the caprese salad were very tasty, the heirloom tomatoes were so delicious. Duck Pappardelle and Lamb fettuccine absolutely beautiful. Great selection of wines and digestives. Service was both friendly and very efficient,...thoroughly recommendedMore

Came to celebrate a special day.....arrived at 1 p.m. and left at 8 p.m.......enough said? No not nearly enough............the service and staff were simply amazing and made the whole day. The food was very, very good from an outstanding cheese and garlic pizza starter to...a full blown pizza, a risotto which apparently matched mine for texture and taste to deep fried and honeyed aubergine which was melt in your mouth stunning. Great wine selection with an especially good prosecco. The fact that we were no rushed or required to leave [or surprisingly not asked to leave :)] made for a perfect day! Very much worth a visit!More

The food was delicious and came quickly. Waiter a little inattentive at first but pleasant enough and delivered the goods.

There are many places to chose from on Waiheke, but for a delightfully unpretentious, excellent Italian meal, with incredible service, go no further. We phoned ahead to be sure of a bottle of our chosen wine and that was no trouble. Throughout the evening we...were looked after really well, the food was lovely and it is clear Fenice has its many locals amongst its regulars. What a better sign of consistency and quality. Interesting to note that we dined only a few hours after Auckland had been given notice of returning to Covid Level 1. Not a word of complaint about short notice and difficulty in staffing or catering for the sudden change - they were ready, well provided and well staffed. Brilliant, and THANK YOUMore

We had a great meal here... it really feels like you have entered italy when you walk through the doors. The food was amazing, and there is a really friendly vibe.

My wife and I dropped in for dinner and a couple of drinks. Excellent staff, service was relaxed but efficient. Food was tasty. Would definitely visit again when we are on Waiheke again.
