I would like to up the ante' to 4 as I've been coming here for a long time now - and the food is very good. You pay for what you get in Auckland city.  Dealing with the few problem areas for me; was a pizza awash with olive oil - once we had blotted it off it was fine - just put it down to a little exuberance in the kitchen .. But the addition of Aioli to a classic Margherita pizza makes me wonder why? The second time I ordered it - I asked for no Aioli and it was delicious. The last thing was the Buffalo wings .... now I've eaten these for years in my travels and myself and my partner can eat very hot ,spicy food - but these were seriously challenging - so hot it literally burnt our mouths - couldn't tell if it was chilli or a cayenne over-kill - just couldn't eat it all.  Had to have another beer. No I didn't complain as it seemed unusual - so I put it down to someone in the kitchen f**ked up with the seasoning - or someone putting their twist on it. Those are the bleats - the menu in general is very good - we have eaten about 90% on offer and those are all the issues - so pretty damn good. My benchmark is Calamari and theirs is excellent - a simple, but equally difficult dish. The service is great and they don't ask "Hows your food" when you have a fork-full in your mouth they leave you to get on with it. Just add a pepperoni pizza (please) - or at least revisit the Buffalo wings and you'll get a 4
