It is refreshing to say the least when you can attend such an establishment and know that you are going to get great pizzas time and time again.

Absolutely perfect pizza. It is really rare to find a place which makes THE TRADITIONAL ITALIAN pizza! Perfect size, seasoning, crispy base and fresh ingredients! The location of the place is modern, and I hope that the owner can get another big restaurant to expand the service. I understand that because is delicious EVERYBODY wants. So, if the day that...

Seeing quite a few people standing around this small "container" joint we decided to give it a try. Not impressed with the following; --the scruffy staff who have absolutely no sense of cleanliness or hygiene --the manner in which the dough is prepared and fillings placed in it --the pathetic way in which the wooden boards are cleaned and immediately...

We're repeat customers. Love this place. Lots of rustic wooden outdoor seating and sun umbrellas. The pizzas are heavenly. Nice thin bases and quality toppings that go together so well. Our favourite is the Morrocan Lamb (see my photo). We get fruit smoothies from the juice bar next door. Try it - you'll love it!

Ordered online to fit in with our visit to the theatre and it was ready within minutes once we'd arrived. Superb pizzas - wonderful thin crust, abundant toppings. We had the feta/mushroom, pepperoni and GF prawn/pesto - all delicious. My friend said hers was the best pizza in Christchurch if not NZ.
