Simply extraordinary home made Italian food. The pasta is amazing and the tiramisu is out of this world. A must!

Our waitress is a charmer, and the hosts couldn't be friendlier. Jan's birthday treat was enjoyed by us both and our friends. Superb food washed down with lovely Chianti Classico. This is our favourite Italian restaurant by miles.

Was impressed with the waiter, made you feel like you were on holiday in Italy. Had the calamari salad, lasagne and fillet steak with mushroom sauce. All the food was perfectly cooked and flavourful. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good restaurant for dinner...More

Wow - the best Tuscan cuisine ever. A treat for the senses and palate. Impeccable service, faultless meal and wine. The only disappointment - I could not buy the Limoncello to take away - it is a homemade family recipe and to die for. Wonderful...More

I had a lovely dinner. Pumpkin soup with croutons, and mussels in a light tomato sauce. Anzo, I think the owner, had "the touch" when it comes to food. Several people recommended this place, and I was delighted.

Thank You for your visit. We enjoy that we can look after our guests as if they are dining in our home. Maybe that is why we have been in business over 20 years now in Napier as Trattoria alla Toscana.

As soon as our small group entered this establishment we should have known to walk straight out, unwelcoming, no atmosphere and absolutely disgusting food. Garlic bread soaking in greasy butter,raw lamb having to be returned,beef cheek tough as old boots had been slow cooked for...More

This is the place in New Zealand where you'll succumb to romance and discover the tantalising flavours of Tuscany...Loving hand crafted pasta and salsa's.
Followed by classic Bistecta Fiorentina or maybe a fresh fish....Having operated for 19 years providing locals & tourists great service & quality food. We use local providers for meat , fish and vegetables and all pasta etc made on site.
