CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Really excellent food and great service. My GF (gluten free) friend said the polenta chips were some of the best she’s ever had. I really enjoyed the pizza - I loved the chili oil on the pepperoni and the four cheese pizza was so tasty but not too heavy on the cheese. Some of the best pizza in Christchurch.

Had the Braised Beef Cheek Gnocchi which was delicious. And for dessert we tried the Torta Mousse al Cioccolato e Gelato all'Amarena. It was divine. Will definitely be back.

After our garlic flatbread served as an appetizer. It is the best pizza base I have ever tasted. It is fluffy and light, and it is stuffed with garlic. It's a good start. The dough is well done and the pasta is also very good. They are definitely the two best Italian dishes we have ever eaten. It's delicious, the portion is moderate, and it ends with Italian cannelloni, which tastes good.

In winter they have these little garden shed things just fit for two outside. Super cozy and somehow makes the experience extra special. All the staff here are just amazing, super friendly yet also remaining professional at the same time. To follow through with the high standards, every dish we had, was just so good! If you are staying in Wanaka, make sure you dine here at least once.

The potato skin is a MUST order. It’s the BEST and become the highlight of our trip in Wanaka. No other restaurant can beat that. Please order the potato skin and join my cult 😂 another thing that catch me is the wee green house hut(?) Its outside the restaurant but so cute and so private. It’s not cold at all, they provide hotties and heater. Very very highly recommended. Will definitely come back.

A flawless experience. It was really easy to book a table and all the staff were very friendly and professional. I ordered some polenta fries for starters, margarita pizza for my main and the tiramisu for dessert. The fries were crispy and delicious, the pizza had an awesome crust and the tiramisù was smooth and creamy. Overall everything was great.
