The pasta from Puglia is made daily, and always in-house. This freshness and dedication shine through in the flavour and texture of each pasta dish.

If anyone tells you that you can’t have a supreme dining experience via a takeouts app, say: ”Cazzate!” and direct them to Puglia…  There are just a handful of truly excellent Italian restaurants in Auckland. Puglia is part of the club… Grazie to the people of Puglia – the restaurant and the place, where the sanctity and authenticity of the Italian cuisine is honoured. We were transported without going anywhere.

This is an authentic Italian restaurant. Love the food, handmade pasta, flavours are just right and not over powering. The calamari was the best I had. And the wines they offer are perfect complement to the food.

Great atmosphere, service and food. Very enjoyable evening and personable staff. The internal lighting and décor are nice too. Would definitely recommend. Good vegetarian options too.

Amazing food, easily one of the best Italian restaurants in Auckland. Everything was perfect and the desserts were delish. We will be back soon!

DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS ONE!! The authentic Italian restaurant you’ll stumble in Auckland. This is now my standard, the closest I can get to bring in Italy’s countryside. Everything is handmade and every detail of the dish is perfected…. The service was beyond expectations and just the experience makes this the best restaurant this year so far. Have been going on about this place since to my family. Will keep coming back for sure

This is the place to go for an authentic Italian dining experience. You’ll feel like you’ve stumbled across a hidden gem in the back streets of Southern Italy as you enjoy its warm and inviting ambience, friendly service and absolutely delicious range of traditional dishes inspired by their place of origin and hand made with love. The prices are also very reasonable. One of the best spots in Auckland for authentic Italian food!!

Wow, I could not stop smiling the entire time I was here! The ambience was comforting and pleasing, the food was absolutely immaculate (the four cheese gnocchi is heavenly!!) and the owner provided the most amazing customer service.  We found this place by chance when searching ‘Italian places near me’ and google did us a massive favour for this one! Will definitely be back!

This was a great find. Service was wonderful. Practiced our Italian out on our awesome waiter. Menu options all sounded delicious. Loved the Italian wine list and complementary limoncello. Had a wonderful evening. We will be back.

First night out after lockdown, we were so satisfied with both the service and the gourmet. Couldn’t be happier with this restaurant and we recommend it to everyone who wants to have a taste of Southern Italian food.

The service was second to none as the staff were really attentive and lovely to deal with. All in all if you want a great authentic Italian meal then I totally recommend this lovely little restaurant!
