You'll get good authentic Italian dishes prepared by an Italian chef at Me Ne Frego in Epsom, Auckland.

The owner and chef, Steve is a grumpy bastard, but his food's bloody good and worth weathering his mood swings for!

He's been cooking mainly in the Tuscany area for the last 20-odd years with his last restaurant in the area being on the island of Elba. He was notoriously known there for being an... interesting personality - and naturally just as well-known for his fabulous food, too; You'd agree when you have a taste of the heavenly pastas he plates up.
