The “ITALIAN LONG LUNCH “ an Italian lunch tradition where one can enjoy the age-old Italian values of family, friends, food and celebrating life in style .

il pranza

An Italian lunch (il pranzo) is considered the most important meal - and on Sunday at Poderi it is treated as such & has fast become an institution for those who reside on Waiheke and those very very welcome visitors .

Our Long Lunch Menu changes weekly and features the timeless classics designed to be perfectly matched with Poderi wines. ($70pp Excl Beverage)

The lunch starts @ 1230  and progresses through many courses ending with Dolci or Frommaggio @ approximately 1630. Please advise if you have time constraints. We will do our best to accommodate, but we have a saying. "There is always plenty more thyme in the garden, and there is always another ferry"
