5 out of 6 dishes (2 diners) were excellent and the 6th was good. Can't get a whole lot better than that!

Really nice to be in a professionally run restaurant. Appreciated the attentive service. The pork hock cheese, and pasta special was to die for. Everybody else loved their meals. We all had a good time. Was my first visit. Will be back.

The pizza and pasta sooo Italian. Finally, my search for authentic Italian in Christchurch has come to an end. The pizza base is soft which i really like. I wish more vegetarian options in the pizza menu. Overall, it was pleasant experience.

First time @FIK. After reading good reviews to be honest it left us disappointed especially compared to Italian restaurants in Wellington and Puglia. The pork hock pasta special left my partner hunting for pork which we had expected to be the star of the dish. Both of us have owned restaurants previously and understand food costings but this was quite frankly mean for $28. My pizza was to have included fresh thyme but it to was hard to find though the base and goat cheese were perfect. Service was outstanding - attentive and friendly.

A great evening in a party of 10. Fabulous food. We started with a couple of platters and 3 serves of close to the best Polenta Fries we have had! Also a serve of the salmon entree. Pasta and pizza mains were awesome. The desserts were a real hit too, with the set cream a real hit! Just let down by the service ... very friendly staff, but 2 mains were forgotten, and later in the meal, a dessert cocktail and 2 coffees were not brought out. However, this certainly did not detract from the beautiful meal we had together in a great Restaurant in the Chch scene. Thanks

Lovely meal & good service. Tiny thing - a cold evening out and just slightly too cool inside. Otherwise thoroughly enjoyable outing.
