Lovely fresh pasta dishes. We enjoyed their ricotta and spinach ravioli with burnt butter and sage sauce and their gnocchi with pesto sauce. I asked for fettuccine with mushrooms instead of chicken as I'm vegetarian. They made it for me without a problem though I...More

Wow - the best Tuscan cuisine ever. A treat for the senses and palate. Impeccable service, faultless meal and wine. The only disappointment - I could not buy the Limoncello to take away - it is a homemade family recipe and to die for. Wonderful...More

I had a lovely dinner. Pumpkin soup with croutons, and mussels in a light tomato sauce. Anzo, I think the owner, had "the touch" when it comes to food. Several people recommended this place, and I was delighted.

Thank You for your visit. We enjoy that we can look after our guests as if they are dining in our home. Maybe that is why we have been in business over 20 years now in Napier as Trattoria alla Toscana.

As soon as our small group entered this establishment we should have known to walk straight out, unwelcoming, no atmosphere and absolutely disgusting food. Garlic bread soaking in greasy butter,raw lamb having to be returned,beef cheek tough as old boots had been slow cooked for...More

This is the place in New Zealand where you'll succumb to romance and discover the tantalising flavours of Tuscany...Loving hand crafted pasta and salsa's.
Followed by classic Bistecta Fiorentina or maybe a fresh fish....Having operated for 19 years providing locals & tourists great service & quality food. We use local providers for meat , fish and vegetables and all pasta etc made on site.
