cuisine being broadly Italian in style. 

Our menu provides beautiful handmade fresh pasta dishes and wood-fired pizzas and is well regarded for its New Zealand-style signature dishes including excellent steaks and innovative

chicken, plus a range of vegetarian meals.

We cater for most diets and offer a dedicated vegan
