Delicious, Grey Lynn - Restaurant Review

A Richmond Road stalwart, recently under new management.

Food

The Italian standards all present and correct, and it's nice to be at an Italian cafe where you aren't confronted by hundreds of options. We tried both the raviolis on offer - zucchini, basil, lemon and ricotta, and beetroot and provolone, both with sage butter. These were large helpings and both tasted quite nice, the earthiness of the beetroot making for an interesting pasta filling. The zucchini option was definitely the better of the two. Both could have done with a little more draining before plating as they were a little watery. A splash of olive oil would't have gone amiss either. For dessert, we tried the lemon mascarpone tart which was made onsite and was a stunner. The accompanying cream was far too light, almost feeling like it may have come out of a can.

Drinks

A regular looking drinks list, though I'm told that it's changing soon to be 100% Italian. There are two Italian beers available. Coffees.

Vibe

It was a late Saturday lunch when we were there, so it wasn't exactly pumping. But it's nice and bright, and the outdoor area would be great for a larger group on a sunny day.

Service

Very friendly if a little tentative. A little more thought into clothing might not be a bad idea, as everyone looked 'lounging around the house' casual.

Highlights

That lemon tart. Ditch the Tiramisu and go for this.

The Bottom Line

Last time I went to Delicious in 2007, the service was terrible, the food severely average and I broke up with my girlfriend in the carpark outside. I'm happy to advise that in 2013, it seems to be mostly back on track.
