Farina and Peroni team up for an enticing lunch offering

There are a handful of institutions we turn to in Auckland for a satiating fix of bona fide Italian food, one of them being pizza legend Sergio Maglione’s Ponsonby Road restaurant, Farina.

With roots that run deep like the River Tiber and a fitting alliance with fine Italian beer brand, Peroni Nastro Azzuro, it’s no wonder the duo has come up with a formidable lunch deal they’ve entitled the Piatto Completo (complete plate). An authentic taste of the good life made famous by the impassioned European nation, this lunch-only meal is an amalgamation of Farina’s signature dishes, arranged deliciously all on one plate.

A melange of caprese salad, arancini, delectable wood-fired pizza bread and more, teamed with a 200ml glass of Peroni or Squealing Pig wine for only $29pp, it seems we’ll be living la dolce vita all week long with this unsurpassable offer.

The Piatto Completo is available 7 days at Farina.
