After much anticipation, Auckland’s newest authentic Italian restaurant and bar Bossi is officially open. 

Inspired by owner Jenna Carter’s rich Italian heritage and helmed by esteemed Executive Chef Shaun Dowling, Bossi promises to transport diners to the heart of Italia – serving up contemporary Italian dishes using fresh and locally sourced ingredients alongside a premium wine list.

Bringing the best of Italia to Aotearoa, Bossi is an authentic and immersive new dining experience located within The Pacifica building in downtown Auckland. The new flagship restaurant & bar opened in December 2022 and offers traditional cuisine in sophisticated modern surroundings imbued with stylish Italian design for discerning diners.

Bossi Owner, Jenna Carter says she is thrilled to finally welcome diners to the flagship restaurant and bar Bossi, which boasts a unique dining experience and unrivalled offering of authentic Italian cuisine with a modern twist.

“Opening a space like BOSSI has been a dream of mine for years. Born out of pure passion and fond memories cooking with my Nonna, this is an ode to her and her legacy. I’m delighted to finally welcome Aucklanders and visitors alike to enjoy the many dishes my family has grown up with for decades.” - Jenna Carter
