Great food and service. The owner Vince helped make us so welcome when we visited from NSW and catered to our desire not to drink NZ wine. We were not rushed and found everyone very friendly with delicious Italian food.

Thank you for your feedback on the Aperol Spritz. We'll do some research and make sure we've got it right. While we try and make sure our service is excellent we do occasionally miss the target. Something we're always working on. Thanks Vince
