Top 5 Italian Restaurants

Buon Appetito

July 2009 - Last updated: 21/03/2011


If you love pizza and pasta, Italian restaurants will be your idea of a wonderful meal out. The plates are always full and the starter breads add delicious flavours.

Here are a few of our favourite restaurants to get your tastebud's watering....
 

Non Solo Pizza
Walk through a secluded archway in Parnell to a beautiful restaurant setting. This place is high class and has great service and food.


Da sette soldi
It feels like you’re entering a living room – in a good way. It’s cosy, warm and inviting. They also have the best pizza bread entrée ever (In Guide to Auckland’s humble opinion).


Prego
It’s very popular at Prego in Ponsonby, and you can't actually book a table. Just turn up on a Saturday night and you’ll either get a table or you can wait at the bar for one. The wait is worth it and service is outstanding.


SPQR
Ponsonby's SPQR is both fancy and flash with mood lighting and gourmet meals, so it’s excellent for a special occasion.


Gina's Pizza and Pasta
This restaurant would be described as flamboyant, fun and friendly, wtih outstanding top-notch Italian food.
Great for groups and a loud and proud Italian dining experience.


Also recommended:
Covo in Parnell, Fort Street and Richmond Road Grey Lynn
