Italian food with that signature Kiwi twist? Sign us up! This is Ciao Belli.
A charming little restaurant in Kingsland, Ciao Belli is honest and homey in all it does. Most seating can be found on its chilled patio, complete with a glass roof and wooden panelling that separates it from the street. It's both indoors and outdoors; the best of both worlds! What's more, you get all the buzz and excitement from the takeaway floating through to the dining area. What, you don't feel a thrill at the sight of a steaming pizza box?!
Now, the reason we're all here: the food! The homemade pizzas range from our beloved favourites like prosciutto e funghi, carne and the cheesy cheese heaven that is the four cheese. The pasta section is another feast for the senses, with light options like penne alla vegetariana and linguine pollo and more decadent choices like penne zola with Italian blue cheese and walnuts. And no, they haven't forgotten the gnocchi and lasagnas!
