Beautiful old charm building, good, attentive service, big portions for well priced and well cooked pasta dishes. The Nonno, the Venison and the Verde pasta were all good. Pity it’s so noisy and the desserts are so average.

This place was a surprise. Great service, good prices. We ate there 10 days ago and I'm still thinking about the pasta dish I had. Everyone in our group loved their meals. Great atmosphere.

I have been living in Dunedin for the past 7 years and Etrusco is still one of my favourite restaurants. The key thing to a good restaurant is consistency and their venison pasta has never let me down. I know I sound boring for ordering...More

This,was our first choice for a family dinner. Unfortunately the acoustics and lack of soft furnishings made it impossible to hear on a busy Saturday. Staff not very helpful. If you wear a hearing aid, choose somewhere else.

Interior design is nice. Staff is attentive. Good is good.Its busy and happening. Food is good.Had the pasta verde, tiramisu and chianti classic(under$60 pp).Ordered the smaller dishes as Italian food can be quite rich.

hi, it's great you are visiting New Zealand, and we do have both gluten free pasta and pizza bases, but we can't guarantee that there are absolutely no flour particles in the air or in the pizza ovens . I hope this helps .
