We were looking around this place last Wednesday but when I and my partner attempt to leave, 1 good attitude gentleman invited us in , to have a look on the menu.
We ordered our food with the same dude but astonishingly his charming smile didn’t leave his face all the time while he was taking our order and helping us to choose our food.
Later on , another guy served our food but he missed our entree, this issue was noticed so fast by the first gentleman who invited us in.
Here this dude, again with absolutely great smile served us a really nice dessert as compliment to correct the other guy mistake.
Honestly. What a real great hospitality, what a fabulous feeling, we really felt as we were so important peoples and more than VIPs.
This is hospitality, this is service.
About the food, just average, not big deal.
Overall, we will be back and we hope to be served same way.
Our favourite is their pastry dishes. For vegetarians we highly recommend either the beetroot ravioli or zucchini ravioli, for meat eaters lamb shanks with pasta was just as lovely. They make their own bread, pasta, ricotta and mozzarella cheese which shows in the quality food that is produced. Would love to go back again!
I will be returning again
The meals would have been fine if they were priced according to what was on offer. My partner did enjoy, however agreed that for the most part it was quite bland.
The first time we dined here, we had entrees, mains, a couple of bottles of wine (you get the idea it was an expensive night out for two), however were really let down after waiting for 90 minutes for our mains I was brought the wrong dish. The correct dish was finally brought out 30 minutes later, however my partner had already finished.
We waited for an hour to be brought the desert menus, however they never came. I was pretty let down at this stage, however 6 months later we gave it another go.
Slightly better, however this time we only spent $80 and called it quits.
On one last note – the restaurant itself is cold, fridgelike and sterile. It looks really cool from outside, however seating is so close together (literally a table 20cm directly beside us), I could hear every conversation around us.
Will I go back here….. I would rather save my money and go to Vinnies – which is around the same price. I can’t believe these restaurants are both in the metro top 50, or priced the same.
It was so disappointed to find out that the place has all changed – the new seating arrangement and deco have made the place unwelcoming and cold; the big Italian dessert chiller is gone, replaced with a smaller one & limited choice; all new staff crew with a different service experience, too many of them looking at you eating, and less friendly; the food presentation was less authentic and very salty. Can’t see the chefs cooking and the kitchen crew has changed as well. The place was much quieter than my visits in years.
Sorry, too many changes for ‘not so good’ experience and vibe.
Good bye my old Delicious, hope I can find the original chefs from another place again one day!!
Reliable for consistently good food. I will continue to return.
Really fresh pasta makes every dish a pleasure to eat but I do think the menu could offer a few different options. In saying that, if I went again I would order the same thing.
Dessert didn’t match the main and the place was very busy but we still had prompt service and didn’t mind having a drink at the bar while we waited for our table.
Over all a really good night
Not a huge choice of dishes but what we did have was perfectly cooked and absolutely “Delicious”.
I have to say I think its the best Italian in the area and we will definitely be back.
I do wish to return but next time I may shy away if it looks to busy. Thanks so much Delicious!
Cool enough to have us back two nights in a row for the broad bean and pancetta ravioli.
The menu is small. Breads, a soup, sometimes two.
A few pasta options, gnocchi, risotti.
The tiramisu is the best in Auckland according to my beloved.
Who am I to disagree?
Good wine selection, great music.
Uncomplicated and very satisfying.
Just what I want in a bloke, and a suburban pasta joint.
