Phoned ahead to book for Saturday night knowing that WOW was on in the city. They said they could fit us in. Upon arrival we still had to wait 10 mins. They clearly weren't expecting alot of customers tonight. Food was nice. Servers were nice. A nice place but not overly amazing

We booked here as it was close to the ASB Arena and we (group of 8) wanted somewhere handy after attending WOW.
As expected the restaurant filled up very quickly and we were expecting a long wait for our meals. Much to our surprise (and delight) there wasn't a long wait at all, the food came out promptly. Maybe a little too quick as our breads arrived at the same time as our mains, not that that stopped us tucking in!
The wine list had plenty to choose from both Italian sourced as well as local.
A few of us saved just enough room for dessert and that didn't disappoint either, my profiteroles were light and was just the right size to finish off the meal. The panna cotta and tiramisu looked very good as well.
On such a busy night, my complements to the whole team, it was a great dining experience.

Really impressed by the speed of the food coming out - a table of 8 and our food was out in 10 minutes. Polite and attentive service. Food to a good standard.

We went here for a quick meal last night, and although the restaurant was extremely busy, we received our meals within 10 minutes of ordering. Beautiful pasta dishes, generous sizes too. Fantastic view across Wellington Harbour while you dine too.

This restaurant is well worth a visit. Along the waterfront makes it a place to have a long lunch or dinner. The food was excellent with large serving and variety. Try one of their desserts. Friendly staff, enjoy the open kitchen concept.
