The offer of New York style meatballs drew us in; but exceptional flavours & great service will bring us back again in the future.
Located on Jellicoe St in Wynyard Quarter, which is a destination in its self, this newly opened restaurant has raised both the bar and a challenge to surrounding restaurants to lift their game if they want to complete with Maduzzi's in the future!!!!
Madduzzi's has such a choice of ingredients - Wild rabbit, wild vension, crayfish, pork, and many more; and then they cook these to perfection into tapas style dishes.
Add to this friendly services and you will thoroughly enjoy dining here.
A tip if there are just two of you - Ask for table 16 in the corner - privacy for two but with great views out onto Jellicoe St.
Go enjoy.

We went here for an impromptu dinner, it was 5pm so we beat the rush. Out waiter advised they have had queues every night for tables, this certainly is the hit spot in town.

The staff were great, very helpfully and informative, I asked for a Chardonnay and was gien two tastes to decide, great stuff!

The food was good, perhaps we left wondering what all the fuss was about. The meatballs were ok but pretty forgettable, I would back myself to make as good, we also shared steak which was small but very good.

Overall I would go again, it was very good, not great though!

Had a wonderful evening at Baduzzi's. Fantastic service and a great relaxed ambiance. The meal was absolutely divine and perfect. Simple and delicious. The dessert is to die for. Will be back for some more.

I've dined here twice now, once for a weeknight dinner with friends and once for a company lunch. Both times have been excellent. The food is really delicious and has some refreshingly different options which make a nice change from the predictable menus at so many places. The meatballs are amazing, the pheasant was amazing, the sardines were amazing. I want to go back and try everything. Interesting wine list, again with a lack of the usual predictable options. Fun, busy atmosphere with very good service. You can't book which is kind of annoying - particularly when trying to arrange corporate lunches/dinners - but that's the only downside.
