The outside of this building really looks like it should be in the Tuscan hillside. We visited for lunch, the atmosphere was very relaxed but the service was very good and attentive when you needed it to be. Light snacks as well as a la carte all available either inside or in the outside courtyard. A beautiful garden too.
Driving to the vineyard from Auckland was no trial, the countryside was stunning verdant & lush. The vineyard is set prettily amongst a garden & offers a carefully selected range of food – all of it is of extremely high quality using fresh ingredients; we loved our shared calamari starter & the veal cutlet was a real hit as a main course. Driving precluded really getting into the wine-list in a major way but the glasses of pinot & sauvignon blanc we shared were enjoyed by all.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this Restaurant within the Winery with friends who have visited on many occasions and highly recommended it. The main meal (Italian) was beautiful and although we did not have a sweet our friends did and it looked beautiful and they said it was excellent. We would come back to this restaurant without hesitation. The waitress was very attentive and our meal was served quickly.
