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.

Fabulous authentic pizza. The people that work there are Italian and know how to do pizza the way it should be. The gelato is also authentic and is made on site. You’d have to go to Italy to find pizza and gelato this good. This...is a small order at the counter/outdoor seating only place. The people who work there are very friendly too. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Waiheke.More

Don’t let anyone tell you that there’s better pizza or gelato on Waiheke. This place was recommended by our host and he wasn’t kidding when he said you’d be hard pressed to find more authentic Italian food anywhere in New Zealand. We had afternoon pistachio...gelato and returned in the evening for a Ninco Nanca pizza and a side of rocket, pear and walnut salad. What a treat. Don’t miss out if you’re on Waiheke. Just hearing the Italian language being spoken by the staff in the kitchen is brilliant, but the food is out of this world!More

Got takeaways from here and had wonderful pasta. Would have loved to try the gelato but that didn't work with takeaway. Would be great to come back and try more of their food as this looked to be a lovely place!

We saw the sign as we drove past, for Italian gelato and it was so perfect on a sunny day. The lemon was very very good and we had it twice that day

I’ve NEVER written a food review before, but we have a holiday place on the island so we knew the gelato was fantastic, and thought we’d try some takeaways. Awesome pasta at really affordable prices. Bacon & mushroom pasta is the pick so far. So...good this is the 2nd night in a row for us, keen to try the pizzas, they look fab too. Italian owners I think, will be working our way though the menu....More

Came across this place through local word of mouth, and found this charming kitchen to have the best gelato we’ve ever tasted. Their pasta and pizza is also sublime. La Dolce Vita is well worth a visit for gelato, pizza or pasta.

We stumbled upon this amazing place as soon as we arrived in Waiheke and had the most delicious pastas you can imagine (at the cheapest price of any other meal we had here). Their tomato sauce is the best I tasted. Honestly. And the meat...ragu was unbelievable, as were the other pastas We tried. On our second visit they had gelato and OMG was it good. After having 4 gelato portions for the four of us, we had to order the other two flavours we haven’t tried, so we can conclude that each and every one of them was divine. I don’t often write reviews but this Little unassuming gem needs acknowledgement. This is someone who clearly knows how to make good food with so much love you can feel in every bite. He imports his pistachios and hazelnuts from Sicily for got sake! Please go there - you won’t be disappointed.More

Chanced upon this place while searching for breakfast. Came back after breakfast to enjoy the ice cream - so smooth, creamy and yummy! Highly recommend: Pistachio, and Lemon.
