Absolutely beautiful restaurant with wonderful staff. Started with the Charcuterie with cheese and tigella bread. All the meats were very good and all unique in their own way. The tigella bread can be cut down the middle filled with the cheese and topped with meats and salads as suggested by our server. The only way to eat this i say. The Tortelloni with buffalo ricotta was hands down the best smelling, tasting, and looking dish i have been served at an Italian restaurant in New Zealand. I highly recommend this one. Also tried the tagliatelle bolognese which was good. I would have preferred more pepper and pecorino bit that was on me for not asking. Decent wine selection. Tried a organic syrah blend amore e follia and it was beautiful. Cant wait to come back
Every time I walk pass this restaurant I see two ladies in the front window making fresh hand-made pasta. So gotta try this place out. For appetiser we ordered tigella (kinda like flat bread, crispy outside and warm fluffy inside) with cheese and sopressa salami. For $18 you receive 1 piece bread, 2 bites of cheese and 3 slices salami on the plate. I’ll let you decide if it’s value for money. For mains, Tortellini with chicken broth (only available Fri, Sat and Sun) and gnocchi with chicken ragout and mushrooms. Both outstanding dishes. Tiramisu tasted great, Panna cotta was okay. Overall a nice place to dine.
So many pasta options to choose from that I just could not decide! Came here for lunch on a weekday, and though it was a bit pricey, Pasta & Cuore has to be one of the most decent pasta stops in Auckland. Will definitely be back!
