"Providing exceptional service and hospitality by exceeding expectations"

Our award winning Premier estate and venue is set amongst the vines of Matakana, on the Hibiscus Coast, just 45 minutes north of Auckland in the Rodney District.

Our passion is captured in handcrafted wine, inspired cuisine, attentive & friendly service and beautiful surroundings.

As one of the Top-rated Restaurants in the Matakana region of Auckland & Rodney district, ‘Osteria’ is a truly unique setting to come and enjoy fantastic food, wine and good old fashioned hospitality.

The word ‘Osteria’ evokes the hospitality and conviviality of ancient local Inns which date back to Roman times, where taverns were places to eat, drink and be merry.

The menu of our Modern day ‘Osteria’ is a snapshot of what Italy does best – exquisite food and wine in a romantic Mediterranean setting.

You are sure to find contemporary versions of many Italian classic dishes, including delicious pastas, risottos and Italian style pizzas as well as hearty main courses.
