We can vouch for the Risotto San Paulo, and the Fettuccine Carbonara. The boys slurped the Spaghetti Napolitana from the kids menu straight down.
If you’ve sampled Eat Street restaurants, snacked the food trucks at the Rotorua Night Markets, and want something different, Ciccio should top your list.
But back to the decadent Italian Hot Chocolate.
Really, who needs dinner, when this is on the menu?
