Second time to Blitza, this time for a friends birthday. Food is excellent and great menu. Service was great but not excellent, though it rarely is in New Zealand compared to the USA who do service and customer service the best. I find the layout...More

This is our favourite local Italian restaurant. They do an amazing surf and turf style meal. You MUST ask for extra neopolitana sauce - TRUST me!!! Their pizza bread is a great way to start. We normally get a second one to take home afterwards....More

Added attraction was BYO Tuesday that certainly makes it a lot cheaper. Food good but not outstanding. Had two sauces that they seemed to use all over the menu. Would go again on BYO Tuesday.

We ate here on Tuesday night, was pretty busy for mid week and we could see why. Lovely food and friendly attentive staff. Will definitely be back

Friendly service, menu selection is good, we did not have to wait long and enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine. Currently the outside looks like a construction site, but once inside its warm. We will be going again.
