First of all the service was spot on. The food was delicious and felt very authentic. I had the Spaghetti Roberto and my colleagues had the Gnocchi and Pizza. All of us were very pleased with the dishes. The pizza was light and very flavourful. For dessert I had the Tiramisu which was large enough for 3 of us to enjoy! Overall I’d highly recommend this place to visit whilst in Christchurch.

This has been a favourite for our family for a number of years. The service is always exceptional and the rustic italian vibe is magic. Not to mention the generous parmesan bowl that is offered upon meals arriving - yum! The food is delicious and pizza is the best in town. A calm and not overly loud environment. We recently celebrated my son's 15th birthday and this was his pick. What a brilliant night. The little things that the staff did to make this night special meant so much.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal last night. The food was delicious, service excellent and we were seated in a wonderfully quiet area.

Our party of 6 included 2 Vegans and 1 Celiac. There were so many choices.
The GF risotto, crispy potato skins, sautéed seasonal verges, gnocchi and 3 pizzas all received great reviews. We were not sure who ‘won’.

My Tiramisu could have fed the whole table. Light and tasty.

The raspberry mojito mock-tail was a surprise favourite.

We will be back soon.
