About 65 residents of the area, dubbed the Greek Quarter because it includes Beta, Delta, Gamma and Epsilon Sts, as well as Northview Crescent, attended the annual community "Long Lunch" — sitting at a long table in front of Roslyn Bowling Club.
The event, which was organised by locals for locals, was held as a Neighbours Day celebration.
Organising committee member Amanda Dyer said the area was a "close-knit community, where friendship and looking out for others is encouraged".
"The event is designed to bring our community together, have a shared lunch, and develop strong community connections in the process.
The sumptuous feast featured dishes such as caprese salad, Sicilian cheese pie, lamb stuffed with sage and pancetta, tiramisu, and lemon and ricotta tart.
Planning for the Long Lunch had been under way since December, and the event was supported through a Dunedin City Council Neighbourhood Matching Grant, and local supermarkets Countdown Mornington and Fresh Choice Roslyn.
The event followed on from other successful community initiatives, including street garage sales, community nights, and establishment of a local home brewing club.
The inaugural Long Lunch, held just before Level 4 lockdown in March last year, attracted 50 people.
