“Family Birthday Celebration”
22 May
Our large group opted for the 3 course set menu. The starter was two huge platters of antipasti, followed by a choice from around 8 mains and 2 deserts. The platters included prosciuto, mortadella, salami, smoked salmon, olives,artichokes, mediterranean vegies, breads, spreads and house made pizza bread – so fresh and delicious. Several people in our group had pizza’s which they enjoyed. I had cannelloni filled with spinach and house made ricotta a tomato sauce and chargrilled vegetables. Another in the group had Beef Cheek Gnocchi which he thoroughly enjoyed. The deserts were another hit; a choice of gelati or tiramisu. A great finish to a very enjoyable meal. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere was lively. The restaurant was packed with diners which pays testament to the great food and service.

Loved it! I had the medium cannelloni which was more than enough with beautiful, full flavours. The Tuscan red wine was perfect. The lemon tart was outstanding with sweet and sour flavours to finish off a beautiful meal. The atmosphere was buzzing on a mid week night. I loved the Italian guy, I’m guessing owner, who sang to himself. He was the heart and passion of the place. New fave place for Christchurch!
