OMG! Just had the best Italian meal since I was lucky enough to holiday in Italy many years ago. Everything was perfect. Lovely atmosphere, wonderful small intimate space, fabulous staff and just incredible authentic food. The Menu changes daily and the pasta is home made. The mushroom risotto was stunning, the seafood pasta delicious and the carbonara perfect! Calamari Anitpasti was so tender and the carpaccio so tasty! If you visit Queenstown then this is the best, most special restaurant in town! Delicious!
