Description: WelcomePoderi Crisci Vineyard and Winery, set in a stunning amphitheatre surrounded by vines and olive trees, has fast become the quintessence of what in Italy is called: Agroturismo. Located 30 minutes from Matiatia in Awaawaroa Bay, Poderi Crisci occupies 7.7 hectares of north-facing slopes in the heart of Waiheke’s unique wine growing microclimate. The narrow rocky strip underlying Poderi Crisci is believed to be 30 million years older than the rest of the Island, boasting soil criss-crossed with mineralised veins. For four generations the Crisci family has been immersed in food and wine, Antonio born and raised in Napoli came to NZ in early 1990 and established Toto Restaurant in Nelson Street . With his partner Vivienne Farnell they opened Non Solo Pizza, an institution in Parnell in 1997 and Bar Vino in 2009.

On a long weekend, when the whole island was quiet busy, we come for the long lunch with friends and family. It was a great afternoon, delicious italian food, nice wine, and overall such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. -Enjoy the sparkling rose, its the best aperitif.
Great service! Everything was well organizied, the food very tasteful and really good, and the staff was excellent. Thanks for such a nice day. We will come back in summer!

My husband and I recently visited Waiheke Island and Poderi Crisci while on a cruise. During a private tour, our guide chose this restaurant/winery for our lunch stop. The service was outstanding, the food was absolutely delicious, wine was great, and the atmosphere left us feeling as if we had stopped in Tuscany, rather than New Zealand. Amazing place, we highly recommend it.

The rolling hills opened up and you enter Poderi Crisci, what a gorgeous vineyard. We were greeted as we approached the restaurant and from that moment on, treated like we were the only people there. The entire staff ensured we were settled, feed well and had a taste of the wonderful wines made there. Highly recommend to anyone wanting the entire wine and dining experience.

Thank you to all the staff.

A long Sunday lunch in beautiful surroundings... just the ticket! The degustation food was wonderful and dietary needs were seemlessly catered for. Our guest didn't eat garlic and the kitchen were so kind to make adjustments all the way through. The only downside is that it takes at least 4 hours. Just a tad long ...

My husband and I had lunch here today. We had been told by many friends it was definitely worth eating here and it did not disappoint. We both had the lamb so I can only comment on this meal but it was excellent and everything else we saw other tables eating looked just as appetising. The staff are attentive but don't rush your meal, enjoy the surrounds and the atmosphere this restaurant offers.
