Our Story

We invite you to come in and experience our multi award winning restaurant , where our motto “mangia bene, mangia italiano” , eat well, eat Italian, exemplifies our approach towards great service.  The relaxed and friendly atmosphere, along with our exciting menu and extensive range of Italian and local beverages including Italian beer Peroni on tap creates a wonderful and inviting ambience to your dining experience.

Our humble beginnings began in 2004 in a cosy Italian inspired restaurant in the heart of New Plymouth.  In 2011, with our growing standards of dining we relocated into our current larger premises. This gave us the opportunity to offer a more extensive range of both food and beverages.   Our extensive menu range gives us the ability to cater for those special dietary requirements, and our restaurant is designed so that we can accommodate all types of groups and functions.
