Francesca's Italian Kitchen

Reviewed By Viaggio46

Twice we rocked up to this restaurant without reservations and both times they accommodated us without fuss. Generous Italian hospitality and an inclusive wine list with Peroni beers. The food was authentic like in Italy and the flavours uncomplicated, silky smooth Italian pastas and gnocchis. We had the pear and Roquefort salad as a starter which I’d have again. The pizzas are wood fired and about the right texture but could be a little crispier. Lamb pasta was outstanding. All four of us would go again today if we lived in Christchurch. Cannoli I could eat all day.

On our holiday to NZ we had our first and last meal here. The food is delicious. There are a good number of dishes on the menu and are well priced for the high quality of the meal. The chef was extremely flexible. We have three young children and they made serving sizes in smaller portions on request. To top of our meal we had the best tiramisu I've eaten and chef went out of his way to produce a brilliant ice cream dessert for our kids. On our next holiday I would make a point of coming to Christchurch just for the friendly service and great food here!

Saw a review in Cuisine magazine before I came to Christchurch and had sister in law book a table for herself and my wheelchair bound nephew; the service was great, the food was first class , especally the cannelloli. Also a good wine list and some craft beer options. An excellent night out.

Cafe Valentino

Benvenuti. Since 1991 Cafe Valentino has been one of Christchurch's favourite dining and drinking destinations, and it's easy to see why. Cafe Valentino offers superb food, an excellent bar and great atmosphere! Lunch at 3.00? Dinner at 9.00? No problem!

This is where you go in Christchurch if you miss having a pizza in Naples. Wood-fired pizzas with a wide range of toppings and the ability to customise one to your tastes as well. They have great pasta too, plus a range of desserts, but this boy tends to go for pizza only (should I name drop the Sorrento and Naples pizzerias I've visited?) as I miss the authentic ones I've had in Italy. This is the closest to it. Efficient, polite wait staff, great range of New Zealand, international and Italian wines and speedy service. Bookings absolutely essential.

Another great meal of pizza at Little High. Somehow didn't make the same impact as least time, which was 6 out of 5, but still great pizza and wonderful milk shakes. Only has straight chips this time, at daughter's suggestion. Wrong! The loaded chips are fantastic and a definite for the next visit. Same for pizza - go for the full value tastes and enjoy.Thanks for the review ...we appreciate your feedback

Casa Nostra Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By David Q

Well not a regular visitor to this Italian restaurant but will make the effort in the future. Food was excellent, the chicken dish was perhaps to big for some, my meal was pasta was fabulous, seafood just great, the service was exceptional, this young man was sooo good, well done. Price good and selection of wine good also.

Earlier this afternoon while in Christchurch I went to Winnie Bagoes in Ferrymead with a friend for lunch.i'm so pleased we did.The staff members Holly and Demi who served us were really lovely ,and made us feel welcome.On Holly's recommendation I had the Cajun pasta for a modest 20 dollars.It was really tasty, hot and spicy, but I'm used to hot and spicy food from having lived in China.The restaurant and bar was immaculately clean and tidy.I highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for really quality dining in Ferrymead.

I havent been to a Italian Restaurant since going GF many years ago as I didnt want to insult beautiful Italian Pasta. What a mistake. Heaps of GF options as well as DF and vegan. Everything cooked to perfection. We have always wanted to try duck fat potatoes....yum! We will be back...all the way from Rangiora as it is well worth it. Lovely staff, relaxed atmosphere.
