Early dinner pre a movie , very accommodating when we said we had a movie booked ,efficient professional service – contorni (?sp) was really delicious , yum pumpkin , we shared the T Bone – amazing. We will be back.
The food was amazing but the service was a massive let down. The maitre was was rude an never smiled. The wine waiter was rude an invasive. We were made to feel as though we were making to much noise and that we were being badly behaved! (I was laughing and taking photos of my kids and husband). As soon as my husband paid the 300$ bill the maitre came to our table an basically told us to leave and made an offensive remark about children !!! Although the food was beautiful I’d much rather go to the restaurant next door to eat (where we were the previous night) where the food is delicious and the service is friendly, welcoming and a very pleasant experience unlike the awful service at NSP!
Great atmosphere – particularly outside with the lovely summer nights! We had the calamari to start, which was beautiful. The pizza was great and partner had the lamb which was rather small, but so tasty!
Pretentious, unsatisfying. Too much hype that food does not live up to. Options and different tastes should be catered to. Very disappointed fro our night out. don’t take the good reviews too seriously…step up and have good honest food.
What a fantastic experience we had last night. We were greeted with a big smile, taken to our table inside in no time. The place was full due to it being Valentines day and a little loud perhaps due to many excited dinners. Special thanks goes to Nichol, an absolutely wonderful and friendly staff member who looked after us from start to finish. She suggested a few meals from the menu and we ordered that. Very delicious, snapper fish was so yumm and share the chocolato for desert a must try. The entrée portions were a little large, so Nichol our host suggested if we too full, they can hold the mains for a little longer while we continue with our drinks, glad we waited else we wouldn’t have finished our mains. Very nice and filling meals. Overall a great pure Italian restaurant to visit weather it be with friends or with that very special one great ambiance and lightling. Thank you Non Solo for making our evening a very memorable one. “I’ll Be Back”
I called NSP at 4pm for a 7:30pm booking and specifically requested an outdoor table for 2. Walked in on time bang on time, the place was buzzing so thought a bit of a wait might be in order – no waiting, was seated at the table I had earlier specified.
The service was from our authentic Italian waiter Cristiano was outstanding. He was very quick to take our drinks order and gave a suitable amount of time to decide on entree and mains. When we requested an entree to share for the 2 of us he kindly pointed out it would be too big and suggested something more suitable. When my partner ordered a main size pasta he explained the size differences between entree and main size. I’m glad we ordered the entree size as the portions were very generous. The home made pasta was incredible and that’s coming from a non pasta fan.
I will definitely visit again. Thank you for a great night out.
I cannot figure out how NSP can fit in the top 50 Auckland restaurants with its out of date and loud interior and quite overpriced food (yesterday one pizza marinara and two beers for forty seven dollars)
Went here for a catch up with some friends great atmosphere although the table was way to large to talk to everyone but that is not a biggy.
The food was very nice, the pasta main size is very small, but the pizzas were good.
The tap beer at $10.50 is just way over the top also and house wine at $10 per glass.
The staff however I found to be very pushy we wanted to talk after eating and basically if you aren’t eating get out was the vibe we all got. I wouldn’t recommend the place just off how we were treated plus I feel I have eaten at Italian places in Auckland that had a much more authentic taste and much much better prices!
Held my birthday party at NSP On 11/8/12 and had a great night. The whole experience was excellent and all of my guests were very impressed. I found the whole team at NSP to be very professional and nothing was a problem, food excellent and I will be recommending NSP whenever I can.
After a bad experience with a parma pizza 2 years ago, I thought we would give it another go. Disappointed again. The only thing going for NSP is that it’s crowded bar wise, which gives it an buzzing atmosphere. Ordered the linguine marinara – only 3(?) tiny bits of seafood. Honestly the worst I have ever had. Huge rip off. Vin Santo for dessert had stale biscotti. Huge disappointment. Gave it a 2nd chance and failed miserably.
Simply wow! Had such a lovely Sunday lunch at NSP. The host was great – polite and friendly. The food was divine! . Shared a platter of bread together with entres like the duck prosciutto, beef carpaccio, artichoke hearts, chargrilled pumpkin, chargrilled eggplant and the tiger prawns. We enjoyed every one of the dishes – well presented and flavoursome. Had lamb shanks on polenta for main and it did not disappoint. The wine selection was nice too. Had a trio of ice-creams for dessert – tried the rasperry sorbet and passionfruit gelato – both were stunning….the chocolate one was average though. Overall, we paid around $80 per person but it was totally worth it! Had to skip dinner, as the lunch was so filling. Will surely go back to NSP again.
Went to Non Solo Pizza last night for a dinner with my partner. What a delightful experience! The hostess was charming and professional, we were greeted with a genuine smile and taken to a table straight away.
The food was delicious, the service was great and the atmosphere was relaxing and authentic!
We will definitely be back!
I have been going to this restaurant since it opened in the late 90s and it was always the place that makes you feel like in Italy…
Yes it has its ups and downs but consistency is the hardest thing to achieve in a restaurant and few can make it. Those who can make it are Michelin star restaurants,charging accordingly.
Anyway had lunch yesterday with my wife and it just happen to be one of those perfect days. Weather was warm. Service was great, pizza is still definitely the best in town and Peroni on tap just made it perfect. Finished it off with a real Espresso and a tip for the staff. Hope they stay around for a long time. Classics are always hard to beat…
Made to wait 25mins for our table which was ok as the barman was brilliant the rest of the staff were ok but nothing to rave about. The entrees came out quite quickly and were average however mains took there time the main size ravioli was a joke and the fish pasta dishes were disgusting to say the least! We will not be back.
Overpriced. I had the worst pizza I have ever had at this restaurant. Dominos pizza makes them better and for 1/4 of the price. This is the 3rd time I have been there and found the food horrible. A few years ago I loved this place and went often. Now I will never go back. I don’t know what has gone wrong. maybe new ownership??
Last weekend we decide to go to NSP at parnell rd I’ve been here five time at least. As a Italian food lover I highly recommend NSP as one of the few good Italian restaurant around the city. Is a Gorgeous place with terrace, bar area, restaurant and bar vino. The service is always good as my experience and at least constant. Food for me one of the best Italian options. Crunchy Pizza and al dente pasta! Try the traditional tiramisu with a aromatic espresso. Yummy!
Awful experience. The staff were rude and cold. We were ignored for 10 minutes upon arrival. We were then told to wait for five minutes at the bar. That five minutes turned into 40 minutes of waiting whilst being past a dozen times by various staff. Not at all impressed especially since the restaurant was not very busy. I won’t be going back…EVER
Average food. Paid $30 for about five pieces of ravioli. The pesto linguini was tasteless. They charged me for sparkling water and calamari, neither of which we had, and were rude about refunding. We were surrounded by Patrick Batemans.
Very impressed with the food and service was excellent. I had the oysters for entree and duck for the main, both very nice. My partner had pizza for her main and the croquettes for the entree which she believe could have done with some sauce or something to compliment the entree. We will definitely be coming back and recommending to all.
Brilliant atmosphere, delicious food, great wine selection. I take out of town clients here as it always impresses them.
The food is authentic and flavoursome. During summer, the courtyard is brilliant for a romantic dinner (which I’ve done numerous times). Quite expensive, but what the hell! You’ve got to enjoy yourself occasionally.
We went here the day after our wedding for a celebratory dinner. The booking was easy via email and when we went in a couple of hours early to see if we could change the time they were happy to accommodate us, despite being fully booked and just making the Metro top 50.
We had a drink in the bar which was great and then were seated in the best table in the house, and served complimentary bubbly to say congratulations.
A fantastic start!
Our waiter was prompt and frankly fantastic (i am sure he enjoyed the tip and was well worth it!)
He was happy to suggest great Italian wines with every course. For starters we had the snapper in lemon juice and olive oil and the meatballs. Both were excellent and complimented with our Montepulciano.
mains we had to share were chicken ravioli and a pork and fennel pasta dish. Both again complimented by an excellent Chianti and topped off with a tiramisu and dessert wine.
The attention to detail, great service and personalised attention made this a fantastic night, even the small things like providing us with plates and serving spoons as we were sharing.
Long time coming back and wish they had another restaurant in Hamilton instead of on Waiheke. Calamari still the wife’s favourite although forgot about the Seafood selection which included prawns and the teenager still rates the Margarita Pizza worth the $50.00 petrol bill. Be back for the next birthday or hopefully before
Great ambiance – pitty about the food. Everything was well below average in our opinion. From the calamari to the pizza, it was all very bland, not to mention expensive. In the two years we have been back in Auckland this rates as probably the worst place we have dined at.
A great lunch venue.
The tapas is well done, the meat selection is frankly delicious and the service efficient and friendly. The venue itself is lovely, with a warm atmosphere and pleasant ambience.
Fantastic wine selection
I had dinner here one weekday evening and was unimpressed with this restaurant. Though I had been there in the last year for drinks I hadn’t eaten there for more than 5 years. I would discourage others from bothering as there are better value quality restaurants in Auckland. The pizza was average and the caprese salad extremely overpriced.
I have been here many times over the years and used to really love this place however on a recent visit to NSP we were left feeling very disappointed by the whole experience.
From the minute we sat down inside the restaurant the wait staff were exceptionally rude, they did not special the table and they managed to continually forget drinks orders that they had taken from members of our dining party resulting in us going up to the bar ourselves to get drinks.
NSP is one of those places you come back to again and again. The food is amazing. I’ve tried most of the pizzas and they are delicious. The wagyu beef is also fantastic. And their wine list is extensive with a good mix of NZ and Italian vinos. The staff are friendly and not in-your-face. Well worth a visit.
