  • Love a good Italian style pizza
  • Great service
  • New restaurant
  • Romantic ambience
  • Ravioli & Gnocchi made inhouse
  • The new restaurant in Westgate

Very new to the area (open since 20 May 2021), Locatelli is an Italian restaurant located in Westgate shopping centre in Auckland.

With a classy fit out by the owner himself that took 78 days, the Locatelli decor is fresh, yet comfortable, with leather chairs and padded booth style seating throughout.

The Locatelli Westgate Menu for dinner includes classic Italian options such as Antipasti and Pizzas, as well as pasta, and even make their own Ravioli and Gnocchi. Look for the menu tab on this page also for the menu or click on the blue font for more info.

The wine list was reasonable, with many of the wines from Italy (we couldn’t go past the Montepuciano) and a few locals as well. We tried the Pork Meatballs entree, with Gnocchi and Beef Ravioli for mains.

    After checking the menu online, we went to Locatelli with great expectations, and weren’t disappointed in the least. As entrees we had arancini and crostini with duck prosciutto. Both subtle and tasty at the same time, and quite abundant, so we kept some bread from the crostini for the coming dishes. We followed with a ravioli piemontese and a fish soup, perfect to dunk the crostini leftovers. Ravioli deserve a special mention for the rich reduction of veal jus, possibly the best I’ve had anywhere. No room left for more, but still managed to squeeze a shared portion of a perfect tiramisu. We’ll be back, we are Italians.

    + PROS: Nice ambience, kind and professional service, reasonable prices
