The whole experience was very good. I had the mushroom and chorizo risotto and my partner had the special of snapper. Both meals were excellent. The service was friendly and attentive. Would thoroughly recommend the restaurant. Well worth walking away from the Eat Street places.

Ate dinner here on our last night in Rotorua. Husband had the veal and I had the linguini. Both enjoyed our meals. Wish we had more time in Rotorua to try the others meals on the menu The service was very professional and quick

We were not disappointed in the food here - The scallops for entre were massive and cooked perfectly. The spaghetti maranara was tasty with plenty of seafood - this was requested as an entre which wasn't a problem, the veal is amazing and delicious, as was the tiramisu and chocolate cake. Possibly the best tiramisu ever. The service was ok.... More

Lovely meal and great service. My husband reckoned it about the best rib-eyed steak he'd ever had! Not too noisy either for a Friday night, even though was fairly full, which was a bonus. Will certainly go back.

We had an enjoyable experience...the meals were wonderful...happily recommend to others to go😉👍. The staff were friendly, helpful and not overbearing allowing us to dine uninterrupted. Was amazed how quick our meals were prepared and how tasty and filling they were. We left satisfied and pleasantly surprised with the cost. Congratulations.🤗

Great service, amazing food. My husband ordered two of the veal (he eats way too much I swear) and both were amazing. I had the lamb it was perfectly cooked and the sauce was to die for.
