We booked for a family gathering of 6 and when we walked in we found it was very popular, but with no one eating. Uh oh, did this mean slow. No, it just meant sittings. In fact I have given the 5 star for two...key reasons. Firstly the food was excellent. Very tasty, just the right portion size (what we had was rich and filling). But most importantly the service was outstanding. The young woman who looked after us was very knowledgeable about the wine on offer, the food, and really attentive. Whilst we did not end up sitting at a conventional low table, it was nonetheless very comfortable. But I do have to come back to the service - despite the popularity, the food was timely, you were not rushed to finish and just very friendly but not in your face. Well done.More

Three of us enjoyed lovely meals, each with something different in each course. Superb food, wonderful service with great attention to detail. The selection of local and international wines are delightful. Excellent consistent and outstanding experience. Thanks to the great team at Alpino.

We had such a wonderful meal at Alpino in Cambridge. From the minute we stepped in the restaurant we were welcomed by friendly faces. The staff were super polite and helpful, and very attentive. The food was so delicious, and despite it being busy we...didn't have to wait long at all. A great Italian restaurant - would highly recommend!More

Last minute booking even though they were very busy. We sat at the bar where the bar tender recommended us food and drinks to perfection . It felt as if we were in a trendy bar in Europe. Starters, mains, dessert and cocktails! Could not...fault anything. The food was the best I have had in Waikato. If that is heaven then kill me nowMore

We have been here twice in recent weeks and on both occasions we found the food to be excellent and the staff very attentive. Drinks were very good with some interesting European wines on offer and a good range of cocktails. However the noisy atmosphere...and cramped seating detracted from the overall experienceMore

Excellent food and service. Food was fresh and flavour packed and just the right amount so you could enjoy it but not feel overloaded. Down side was that it took over an hour for our mains to arrive and when you have been allocated a...2 hour window to dine in, we found this frustrating. Also frustrating seeing tables around you who arrived after you getting their food first.More

Went here some years ago the food was good but the service a bit hit and miss, this time both were superb. We were a group of 4 and had a range of dishes including Octopus starter (really good) Seafood Risotto, Beef Pappardelle (really tender),...antipasto, pizza, 3 desserts. All were really enjoyed. Service was top notch friendly helpful waiting staff kept themselves busy filling water glasses and wine glasses , checking on guests. As good a service as I have had anywhere in New Zealand. Their lunch menu I believe is the same as their dinner menu so the price up there for lunch but well worth it. We look forward to going back.More
