Use to love comming to this restaurant but it has gone down hill. Service was poor had to ask for water twice and had three different waiters who kept asking if we wanting pizza bread which we allready had. Food was lacking taste and very bland. Wont be rushing back

This was one of my fav restaurants when I lived on the Shore so it was with great anticipation that I took my husband there for an early dinner. We hadn't booked but were generously offered a table for two. We started with the pizza bread with garlic and were very happy to taste the bread was laden with garlic!... More

I attended as a group of 12, which was booked for 1830 on a Wednesday. We ordered some tap water (among other drinks) and had to repeatedly request more as not enough was brought. We also had to ask for glasses. We had food from the set menu. They didn't want to take our order until after we finishes the... More

We have been coming here for over 15 years and usually have their ` veal marsala ` ; as usual a basic but tasty dish ; even the lady in charge has been there for over 10 years ; a bit noisy but great atmosphere

The restaurant was busy and a bit noisy but the food was fair enough to good. There were some junior servers who seemed a little confused but perhaps they were new. I would go there again but the Turkish place along the street would be my first choice.

Food took quite a time to come and was ok but nothing special. We had been recommended by a friend so maybe we have higher standards.

Very noisy and tables close together. Food average service average nothing to write home about. Had the Scaloppine Marsala bit wishie washie on the flavour and the veges were cold. I hate it when the servers don't bring all the dishes out at the same time

Sunday night; end of a horrible week and we really, really wanted pizza. We hadn't originally intended to try Botticelli -- but I'm glad we did. Even though it was late and they were probably near closing time, the service was friendly and helpful and our pizzas were just what the doctor ordered. Looking at the food on other diners'... More

A cosy and buzzy neighbourhood restaurant. Nice to be somewhere busy on a wintery Wednesday night in Takapuna. Skip the pizza and choose the exquisite homemade pasta! I had the Pansotti (like a ravioli) stuffed with sweet pumpkin and ricotta and a delicious red pepper sauce which made the dish. My date chose the seafood pizza, which was okay, a... More
