It is a nice restaurant, I’m not always a fan for Italian food, but this place changed my view, I love the way they served the eggplant with cheese and tomato, I will come back again!
Baduzzi is a noisy restaurant that doesn’t take reservations for small groups. Despite this, my parents love it and so do I. The service is always excellent, they deal with dietary issues with ease and state what’s edible with every dish so there’s no confusion. The food is quick and delicious. My favourites are the saffron & potato cappelletti and the chocolate torte. Everything is good though! Great for a pre theatre dinner too as they will ensure you get out on time.
Fabulous place! The eggplant is amazing! They cooked it with tomato and cheese, my friend and I were surprised by it! And the dessert too, is really good. The service is nice, wine is nice, deserve a five star!
Had been planning on going for months, heard awesome things about the restaurant. Finally got here, with another couple for an evening meal. Restaurant had a great vibe when we arrived and we were quickly seated. Ordered drinks and some starters, the wood fired wild caught prawns were awesome (get more than one, it's worth it). Mains were ok, good flavour, sadly over seasoned though. Desert (Valrhona chocolate "torta caprese") was excellent, I don't have a sweet tooth but I really enjoyed it. Food: 70% Ambience: 85% Service: 70% Give it a go, personally it's not for me and I'm on the hunt for the next restaurant.
We have eaten many meals at Baduzzi and it is our “go to” venue for visitors; none have ever been disappointed. Auckland Italian options have improved significantly in recent times, and Baduzzi is one of the better places. As the restaurant name suggests, meatballs are centre stage on the starter menu. They are delicious. However, there is something for every lover of Italian food - and wine. Bellissimo.
