First things first — the drinks. Italian favourites reign supreme here, as always, with a series of Aperitivo Martini Spritzes and a host of exceptional drinks deals on offer. From the Seasonal Spritz, which combines Martini Bianco with tart passionfruit and soda, to the Martini Fiero Spritz with soda, prosecco and Martini’s ‘Fiero’ drop, which boasts a bittersweet orange taste, to the Martini Paloma, combining Martini Bianco, cynar, grapefruit and lime — these quenching cocktails are the perfect place to start, and are sure to set the tone. Of course, there will be plenty of Champagne and rosé specials too (this is a long lunch, after all), with Veuve Clicquot available all day for $25 a flute and $150 per bottle, bottomless prosecco* on offer for $49 per person, and, for the lucky revellers who purchase the first five bottles of Minuty rosé each day, you’ll be upgraded to a magnum.

When it comes to the food on offer, the options are bountiful. First up, the antipasti course sees the table served a delicious mix of house-made focaccia drizzled in citrus oil, served alongside whipped parmesan dip, Massimo burrata with olive oil and truffle salsa, Italian specialty Gamberi alla busara (prawns roasted in tomato, garlic & parsley), and delicate beef carpaccio with fresh truffle aioli, crispy capers, pecorino, and rocket.

The second course, however, is where the real magic happens. Here, you’re invited to indulge in roasted whole market fish with farmhouse bean gremolata and gribiche, slow roasted beef tenderloin with vincotto, rosemary and garlic with rosemary roasted potatoes, NSP’s famous house Caesar made with crunchy cos, lemon parmesan dressing and crispy pancetta, seasonal oysters served either natural with mignonette or Bacio del Limone granita, or crispy beer battered with aioli, a pasta course with either scampi linguine with or spinach & truffle ravioli, and woodfired pizzas straight from the traditional oven.

Right: FROZEN CREAMSICLE TORTE

And to finish, take your sweet, sweet time and savour one of the delectable desserts on offer (we suggest the frozen creamsicle torte with lemon gelato, buttercake, and Italian meringue), before moving on to a curated selection of Italian and New Zealand cheeses, lavosh, and generous condiments. The pièce de résistance, however, is the final round — NSP’s infamous Limoncello & Belvedere jellies. Sublime.

This competition is now closed.
