I randomly came across Spags as it's known after my hotel didn't pick up the phone when I was trying to dial in room service. I simply googled home delivery pizza and found Spags. The New Yorker not only saved me from hunger over the past couple of nights, it was so good I ordered the same pizza on both... More

We stumbled on Spagalimis while looking for somewhere to eat on a busy Saturday evening. They were fairly full but managed to find space for 6 of us. We all ordered small pizzas with two of us leaving the onion off! Wow, wow, wow. There wasn't an ounce of food left on any of the six plates. They were amazing... More

A Christchurch institution. Spags is a great place for some great pizza. It's a very family friendly place so it's not fancy if that's what you're going for. The pricing is probably slightly steep (~$27 for a large, check Facebook for their specials), I would recommend getting large pizzas as they are considerably bigger than the mediums. Favourite pizzas of... More

Decor was a bit outdated and the place was dark but you can't complain when the pizza outs as good as it is. Nice flavours that you can see and two for the price of one! Quick too. Will be back

I always go there when I go to christchurch. Their lunch deal is very affordable and their pizza quality are nice as well. I especially like volcano pizza. Always good for family visit and for group meeting as well. Staffs are usually friendly.

Hi rach690, Thanks for your review. We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience. The single candle in the Chianti wicker basket bottle on each table has been a huge hit with hundreds of our customers. People really enjoy this. On purpose our restaurant is dimly lit. This is not poor lighting but rather selective lighting to create a... More

I've been gluten-free for a decade or so and have tried a few different brands of pizza over that period. Spags is still make my pizza of choice. My favourites are Thai Chicken, Apricot Chicken, and Ground Beef. The photo is of Ground Beef with a drizzle of sweet chili sauce on top. It's not strictly on the menu but... More

Staff were lovely. Large pizza was the biggest I have seen. Lots to choose from. Nice thin bases. Restaurant was very dark and cold as we walked through.

A familiar haunt for good pizza. Reliably good pizza with a wide variety. Can be cold and rather dark at night, but the food certainly makes up for that.

Hi Kathleen S, Thank you for your review. We have sorted some issues that we were having with our heating system which has solved the problem with some cold areas of the restaurant. We agree that there is nothing worse than a cold restaurant. Our dimly lit dining area is a feature that creates a cosy space and we are... More

We decided to visit the other end of Riccarton road from the previous night. We then discovered Spagalimis. Outside the place looks a bit bland. Once inside I was amazed. The cosy interior felt warm and welcoming. The dimly lit space made for a very relaxing and enjoyable night out. In fact it was a trip down memory lane. I... More
