How about we skip surfing for an oh-so-cheesy Italian pizza? It's true; this restaurant is becoming every surfer's dirty little secret on the Kapiti Coast.
And one can see where they might get tempted. A very beautiful replication of some of the finest Italian trattoria found in Venice, Naples and the like, The Surfer's Mistress is a rustic treat. With a sunny courtyard out back to escape the coast's wind and soak in the rays from this secluded spot. It has everything you need for a lazy Italian evening.
Pizza, pasta and carne are what they do, and you can bet that it's some of the best in the area. All their pizzas are made from scratch every day using Italian flour from Naples, and they make sure they don't overwhelm the delicate dough by choosing simple toppings like pepperoni, Italian mozzarella and artichokes to compliment the balance of flavours.
The pasta follows suit with fresh ingredients added to fresh pasta made daily. Strings of linguine are graced by prawns in a white wine sauce, fusilli finds a comrade in Italian sausage and parsley, and fettuccine welcomes the rich and meaty goodness of a beef and pork ragu made from a recipe sent straight from Bologna. Armed with Italian dolci, allow the evening to drift on endlessly before you decide once and for all that surfing is simply not on the agenda.
