We ate here this week for our Daughter's birthday - her choice. They had a new menu since we were there last, with all our favourites plus a few new things. I had the new Smoked Chicken & Cranberry Pizza which was delicious. The baby spinach and red onion added to it was great - cut the sweetness down a... More

My fiancé and I just moved to the area, so being Friday night we ventured out for drinks and snacks! Blitza was recommended by a friend, we weren't disappointed, staff efficient (although clearly rushed), and made us feel welcome, drinks and food arrived promptly. We shared the scallops, calamari, olives and bread. All very tasty! We will be back!

Surprisingly enough there are two Italian restaurants next to each other in Birkenhead center and if I gave Abruzzo 4*, I can't do any different than hit full score for Blitza. My main complains about Abruzzo were expensive and and convincing meals. Blitza is probably even more expensive but meals and pizzas are better than their competition offers. I had... More

We have been here as a family a few times. There is a kids menu which seems to suit most kids - except my incredibly fussy kids - however accomodating them was as easy as asking. I found the meals to be very big. I love the steak there and they get it spot on every time. The starters are... More

Blitza makes scrumptious pizzas and lovely dolmades. Theyre accommodating and offer a good wine list. Warm ambience. A favorite neighborhood place!

Blitza add a little bit more love to their pizzas than your chain restaurants, but they do hike the price up on them for sure. They offer a few other things on their menu but the pizzas are the stars of the show.

Even though I just ordered a takeaway, the place had a great feeling when I went in to order and wait for my pizza. Very cosy and definitely a place I will go back to for a sit down dinner. Ordered takeaway pizzas which were awesome

The place was full but we got quick service and a good meal. There were seven of us and we all enjoyed the meal. Two of us had eye fillet which was tender and tasty.
