Welcome to Guilianna's

What is a Trattoria?

The idea of Guiliannas Trattoria is recreate a traditional Tuscan eatery in Torbay.

The Trattoria is a small, informal Italian restaurant. In concept it is less formal than a ristorante. A casual and unpretentious location to dine. Service is casual but polite, prices are affordable, and food trends are following regional Traditions and family recipes using delicious premium products from New Zealand and beyond.

At Guiliannas, we focus on creating an upscale yet suburban dining experience, with an ever changing seasonal menu of delicious handmade fresh pasta and many complimentary dishes (Menu).
