Feast Of Italy
Goode Brothers is bringing the Feast Of Italy to Auckland - a month-long Italian festival filled with an array of deliciously goode food and wine events and, best of all, one lucky customer will win a trip for two to Italy. You'll also be able to enjoy different regional set menus, Pasqua Italian Winemakers Dinners, Prosecco tasting evenings, NZ vs Italian cheese and wine blind tastings, Kids' Pizza School and Pasqua Italian wine specials.
WIN A TRIP FOR TWO TO ITALY
We're giving one lucky customer the chance to win a trip for two to Italy, including internal transfers between Florence and Venice, 10 nights accommodation and $1000 spending money - it's that goode!?
It's super easy to win too because with every set menu purchased, you can get a raffle ticket for just $5. With only a limited number of tickets available, the odds are way better than lotto and one lucky customer WILL win it.
Each of our three venues across Auckland has chosen a different Italian region to champion for their three course set menu and at just $35, you'd be hard pressed to find better bang for your buck if your keen for a lunch or dinner feed. Better yet, book online for a set menu and we'll throw in a free focaccia bread for the table.
For one night at each venue only, we're turning up the volume on our already delicious set menu by adding another 2 courses. That's five too-goode-to-be-true courses plus wine matches.
Hosted by internationally reknowned wine ambassador, Gavin Hubble, you'll be walked through the history of Italain wines, what makes them stand out from the rest of the world and how to discover all the details of the flavours in the wines. Our Head Chefs will also introduce the dishes to you at each course, making for a truly memorable gastronomical experience like no other.

PROSECCO TASTING EVENTS
How much do you know about Prosecco? Sure, it's Italy's answer to Champagne but the similarities stop there. For one night only at each Goode Brothers venue, we're giving you the chance to taste five different varietals, learn about their differences, taste their flavour profiles and cleanse your palette with breads and dips.

NZ VS ITALY WINE AND CHEESE BLIND TASTING EVENTS
Kiwis have a love affair with wine and cheese and for goode reason - with some of the best milk in the world and a wine industry that's an international leader, you can quickly see why. But have you ever had Italian cheese? And have you ever matched it with Italian wine? Does it taste goode? Find out for yourself at our NZ vs Italian wine and cheese blind tasting evenings.
For one night only at each venue across Auckland, you'll get to sample authentic Italian and New Zealand cheese and wine but there's a catch - you won't find out what's what until the end of the evening after you've scored what you like. Guaranteed to be a fun and tasty night out.

KIDS PIZZA SCHOOL
As Auckland's favourite family-friendly Italain restaurant, we haven't forgotten about your little ones during the School Holidays. From Monday 9th to Thursday 12th October from 2pm - 4pm, we're hosting a pizza school where kids can come in and make their own pizza.
From 2-3pm, 5-9 years olds will be supplied with their own pre-made pizza base which they can cover with as many toppings as they like, while 9-12year olds will be given a dough ball to knead and roll into their own pizza base before covering it with our goode pizza toppings from 3-4pm.
Pasqua Italian Wine Specials
Founded in Verona in 1925 by brothers Riccardo, Natale and Umberto Pasqua, this family business is now managed by a second generation of the family and remains one of the main privately owned wineries in Italy.
Values like family, history, tradition and respect for the terroir are fundamental for the company. Those values are reflected in the production methods which take care of the vineyards and use respectful methods of vinification.
The excellent quality of wine is the result of the passion and dynamism of a family that has been producing top-quality grapes for three generations.
