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.

Good service and great food. Three of us had pizzas which were superb. The lasagne was very good. Gelato yum! And a delicious crème caramel.

Passo used to be one of my favourite spots. Not any more. We were at Passo’s to celebrate a birthday. We were initially placed in front of the open back door and after our menus, napkins etc had blown off for a third time we...moved ourselves to another table. The person who seated us must have known we were sitting directly in a draught. We ordered our drinks and the beer we wanted was not available. We were told this when we gave our orders so no problem. One person then ordered cider. All our drinks came except the cider. The diner was told there was no cider an available. We have a liquor store next door. The staff could have popped in and bought some cider and if that was not possible why not tell the person there was no cider before everyone else was served so she could choose another drink and all were delivered together. As it was there was a ten minute wait till her drink arrived. At that point we had not had our order taken. No, the restaurant was nowhere near full. Finally one of our party had to signal the staff to take our order. The food arrived in a reasonable time but only one person was happy. The two pasta dishes were flavourless and the pizza of the day was dry and unappetising. At the end of the main course I ordered a tiramisu. We waited and waited and waited. One of our party had to leave and as we began picking up our belongings our server turned up and said goodbye. I reminded her about the tiramisu and told her I would take it away. Another wait. When it did arrive I was told it was the computer’s fault that it had not been sent out. Again, the restaurant was nowhere near full and the server could not remember that I had not received my dessert?! The person who left early paid $40 and another person was to pay the remainder. We went to the till but another person was being attended to and there was obviously a problem with that bill so we waited while that was attended to. Eventually it was our turn and neither our server or the man who was also at the counter could not use the computer. We waited approximately 15 minutes while they tried to sort out our bill which was three mains ( ones was shared), four drinks and one dessert. Not difficult. Not impressed at all. Poor service and food not up to standard.More

This is our favourite restaurant in the Kapiti region and never fails to deliver. Warm, friendly service, exceptional food and a lovely atmosphere, what more could one want? Having just returned from Italy, I can safely say that this is the real deal. Highly recommend.

Easily the best meal I have had in ages. I had the marsala chicken which they cooked for me even though it was still lunchtime. Portion size was good and sauce was generous. They chicken was crumbed which I thought Id not be so keen...on but it was crunchy and beautifully cooked. My husband had a pizza which was well above the ordinary . It was well balanced and had some great flavours. Will go back soon.More

Casual but nice warm ambience and good food. All six of us were pretty happy with the meals, although the pork in the pork belly dish could have been more tender. Service was very good

Passo is a great place for lunch. The staff are friendly and attentive and the pastas we chose were delicious, well portioned and affordable. Unfortunately nobody ordered a pizza, but I have heard good things about them too. An excellent addition to the Kapiti food...scene.More

I have lunch here every couple of month's. Each time I purchase a large rocket salad with bacon. I have done so, from the moment I first saw rocket salad appear on the menu (its been a few years now). I am not sure why,...but today it was extra delicious!! Maybe the pear was nice and ripe ...or mabye the bacon was nicely grilled .....or maybe it was the extra crunch of the walnuts ...or maybe it was all of the above. I hope you never take this off the menu LOL. ps. the pork belly pasta was yummy tooMore

Really enjoyed my Italan lunch today. A 'half & half' pizza which was so big I could only manage half (and brought the rest home for later) followed by the tiramisu to die for. Service was good and attentive and the gentleman who took our...order very helpful. It was a very hot day so we sat outside under the umbrella with a nice little breeze blowing. My husband had the most delicious salmon risotto which I can recommend. Great place to visit for lunchMore

Went here for family birthday lunch but wouldn’t go again. Service was SLOW & minimal and wait staff didn’t appear to have a clue or be bothered finding out about their own menu items . Among the worst pizza I’ve ever eaten burnt base, tasteless...sauce and skimpy topping. Rest of groups meals very average. Doors at both end of restaurant wide open on a windy day and was like sitting on a wind tunnel. Not a pleasant experience overallMore

Not a good dining experience if you want to relax and take your time. Yes, we were told there is a time limit on how long you can have a table. Unfortunately, the service makes you feel rushed when plates are removed before everyone is...finished. Our food was delicious totally recommend the Lamb Ragout. The Italian red wine on tap is an easy-drinking red. I am grateful for how the waiting staff handled my glass having a chip in it by replacing it straight away. Unfortunately, I found a bone in my main on my last mouthful. This was dealt with by giving us a discount which was appreciated.More

No restriction of table sitting on confirmation of booking(was advised there should have been). On knowing that we didn’t receive this information and acknowledging this we were still asked to vacate our table. In the 1hr30min sitting we waited 12 minutes to get our first...round of drinks. 45 minutes for our main!! No starters ordered(good job we didn’t as would have been walking out with our main plates). Then on the 1hr 29th minute being asked if we would like to see the desert menu but need to vacate the table within 15mins. We had not long received our second drink. How could we contemplate that we would even receive a desert and eat it within that time let alone finish of our second round of drinks which I must add felt rushed. We turned down ordering desert on the basis we were being rushed out of the restaurant having had to endure a lengthy wait as it was for our food. On exiting and paying the server apologised for the non-informing of the table turnaround(no apologies however for how long we waited for our food or our rushed second round of drinks) At the very least those drinks could have been given on the house out of consideration or courtesy for the non advisory of this at confirmation of our booking, but no, nothing other than being asked to vacate. ABSOLUTELY spoiled our evening and disheartened by our evening out. Embarrassed towards our friends to which we recommended going here. Will not recommend to anyone in the future.More
