Fabulous pizzas! May look expensive ad first but we always share and sometimes have trouble finishing. We love the half N half option. Helpful staff and great value.

The quality of the food is consistent and we always know we can count on an enjoyable meal. The pizzas are exceptionally yummy, and there is a good variety of non-pizza dishes as well. Great for families, too.

I went for dinner and both the garlic and cheese bread and the Scarborough Fair pizza were amazing! The service was great too. I would love to go back.

Great eat in pizza spot - nice casual atmosphere, doesn't matter what you're wearing. Do takeaways as well. Love their garlic pizza breads, very good value at about $5 each. And the chocolate cake with fudgey ganache sauce is a must-eat!

This is what New Zealand eating out experiences were like in 1980. Minimal service, sticky tables and items unavailable on the menu by 7.30pm. Apparently everyone before had ordered the crumbed schnitzel parmigiana (yet a check of all the tables of those dining did not reveal anyone eating anything other than pizza). So I was forced to eat a pretty... More

I've been here a few times now, and it's always a treat. Their pizza is excellent, and we always get the dessert pizza (ingenius) to finish off a delicious meal. Service is good. The atmosphere is usually quite busy, and isn't the best place for a quiet meal, but is a great place for good food and fun company.

We have eaten here a number of times and like their uniquely topped pizzas. My fav is the beef and béarnaise.

We had pizza delivered as the restaurant was full. The pizza was nice, although a bit overpriced. The pizzas were a bit different from other pizza places. The garlic bread was very tasty.

New to this country I was looking for somewhere new to try. BEST DECISION EVER! My partner is from Palmerston North & suggested this place. I was definitely not upset. The pizza was absolutely wonderful. I highly suggest this place to everyone in the mood for great pizza!
