You know your pizza is in good hands when an Italian is at the helm. Ponsonby local favourite, Farina, is owned by Napoli-native, Sergio Maglione and his business partner, Mike Ross. Together they’ve created a gorgeous, airy restaurant with a menu full of traditional Italian dishes and legendary metre-long Toto pizzas—genius!
Farina even caters for you ‘can’t stop, won’t stop’ Italian eaters with a Yum Ciao lunch service (Tuesday to Thursday, midday to 3pm). It’s the best way to eat your way through Italy without the inevitable food coma.
