Do yourself a favour and get there before the word gets around, this won't continue to be Christchurch's best kept secret forever!

GREAT vibe, fantastic staff and an excellent authentic range of goods to buy and food to enjoy - in a place which feels like a home away from home. This lovely spot feels like a slice of Italy transported to Christchurch.

Perfectly suited to everything from day time small business meetings, to family, friends - couples. Often on Friday and Saturday there can be classical music live, and sometimes other italian themed events.

I can't believe it's taken me a year to discover this terrific place!

We 4 shared the chessboard which was very good value with such a variety of tasty cheeses. I had spinach and ricotta callennoni which had great flavour, and my partner and a friend had pumpkin stuffed circles of pasta which we all sampled and loved. The 4 th member of the group had the wondrous pesto lasagne. We enjoyed the live music very much. We declined dessert, but it was tempting. We'll be back.

We came across this great little place by accident a couple of days ago. We had a light lunch which was just great. The place is very clean, the food just 'what the Dr ordered'. Excellent service and very welcoming and pleasant owners. A must if you are visiting Christchurch.

Very pleasant place to eat. I had lunch here and had the Antipasti platter - goodness it was very good value for money. Full of cold deli meats, cheeses and the best warmed focaccia bread. Enjoyed every mouthful, couldn't waste any it was delicious. Definitely back for more!
