This weekend, I took my love to my favourite Italian restaurant – Baduzzi. It must have been my fourth visit, but the handmade meatballs & pasta were still the same – absolutely delicious.
What I love about Baduzzi is that it is such a warm, cosy restaurant, that oozes elegance and sophistication. We sat in the covered courtyard outside, enjoying the sunshine and greenery without the cold & wind, and enjoyed some truly amazing cuisine. My highlights were the hapuka bolognese with crayfish broth, braised lamb meatballs, and Italian rosé from Sicily. My partner chose the wood-fired flat iron steak tagliata with creamed potato and rocket, and for dessert, we shared the tiramisu which was the perfect combination of sweet & creamy, bitter & crunchy.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch date, and I’m thrilled to have re-visited the best Italian restaurant in Auckland. If you’re looking for delicious, authentic Italian food, I’d highly recommend Baduzzi!
