Our visit to Farina was unusual from the beginning. First, when I called to make a booking, co-manager Mike Ross took the call and said we could book a table for four.

"I'm the boss, and yes, that's fine." A few days later he called back to discuss what sort of budget we were planning for the meal. We chose the $60-a-head version which sounded a good deal for antipasti, pasta, main course and dessert, and headed over to Ponsonby with mounting excitement.

And so we should have. Mike was on duty. And as he explained, 18 months after he and the famous Toto, with its opera nights and marvellous deli, left Nelson St and hit Ponsonby Rd, they've invented a new style of dining. Instead of offering the usual a la carte menu, Mike and his chefs personally design a three-course dinner plus hors d'oeuvres around each group. All diners do is set a budget and they put together the best in-season and well-balanced meal that amount of money can buy.
