Merchants of Venice Information

Merchants of Venice (MoV) promises to bring authentic Italian cuisine to Auckland’s waterfront.

The interesting and varied menu is inspired by rustic, regional specialties from around Italy and has an emphasis on using the freshest local seafood, wild game and produce available.

Fresh pasta is prepared in-house daily, and the wood fired oven will deliver truly authentic Roman style pizza!

MoV is a great place to sit and enjoy a glass of Prosecco or ice cold Peroni paired with a Antipasti or Salumi.

Been there twice, the food was worth it, the service was great (even though last time there was a hiccup with our daughter's meal not turning up until later), it was a great experience and something fresh for our taste buds.

My husband actually says that even if you were allowed to buy the kids fish & chips, it was just as amazing - if not better! - thank his hapuka dish.

Great food and service. We had the degustation menu, which was lovely, and I thought the portions were pretty generous too. Would definitely go back!

Great location and nice food at a good price. Some authentic Italian dishes too. The pizzas could do with a few more different toppings though to cater for the kiwi palette. We'll go back to Merchants of Venice...

I can't fault the food or beverages, a menu of delicate yet rustic cuisine, the view is fantastic and the venue itself has a nice feel about it. The only thing that let me down at Merchants of Venice was the service. Bad service can leave a bad taste. I will go back, but only when I hear they have improved their service.
