Well done to these guys that finally gave me to taste a real Italian pizza after a while. Flavio and Gianluca and Co. keep going like this. I was in Nelson two nights and I went there two days in a row for dinner. Definitely a place to go if you want a good pizza.

Would not come back. Better places in town. This place has gone way down hill. Lacking flavor and staff not interested. Shouldn't be called Stefano as he's sure not here.

Stefano's bustles with youthful energy. We had two pizzas: one good, one not so good. The fungi and prosciutto had fresh mushrooms, good ham on a crisp crust. Unfortunately the marinara had a scorched tomato sauce and strong tasting anchovies. Draft cider helped get us in the mood. This quirky place is located on an upper floor of the local... More

Had two small pizzas,crust too soft but flavors ok. No atmosphere just a bunch of noise from staff talking loudly and laughing with nothing else to do I guess as it was quiet when we arrived.There were speakers on the wall but no music to drown out staff banter.I advise more customer focus,look at the cooking time on yr pizzas...

Tasty pizza, that is similar to what you would get in Italy. But I would recommend eating at the restaurant, since pizza shouldn't be kept in a closed box.

We arrived to Picton at 12 o'clock with the first ferry of interislander and went directly to Nelson through the coast road. We rroved around 3 p.m. and we found that from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. they do not serve pizza's. They should take into account that people that it takes a while to go to Nelson from Picton.

The pizza is really good. The standard italian topping pizzas are affordable and delicious. The less standard, fancier topping pizzas are great but a little more expensive. The decor is seriously lacking, but thats what you get for the location.
