Really impressed by the speed of the food coming out - a table of 8 and our food was out in 10 minutes. Polite and attentive service. Food to a good standard.

We went here for a quick meal last night, and although the restaurant was extremely busy, we received our meals within 10 minutes of ordering. Beautiful pasta dishes, generous sizes too. Fantastic view across Wellington Harbour while you dine too.

This restaurant is well worth a visit. Along the waterfront makes it a place to have a long lunch or dinner. The food was excellent with large serving and variety. Try one of their desserts. Friendly staff, enjoy the open kitchen concept.

The staff was very kind and attentive, the veal was done perfectly and the tiramasu was the best I have had in many years. I highly recommend this restaurant. I can't wait to go back.

We enjoy a good Italian meal but tonight we were disappointed. My husband had the fettuccine pollo and he said the only good thing was it had a reasonable amount of chicken. The sauce had no depth of flavour and the fettuccine was lacking freshness....More
