pizza base was more like a wrap it was supposed to be thin crust but this was wafer like, also very little topping on it, also pre cooked bases were being taken out of fire and thrownon a piece of cardboard on table in front of us. not very good.

After a big day hiking we picked up take away pizza from this pop up pizza spot. It was really good, great toppings, thin crispy base and good value.

This was just average, but accompanied beer well. Garlic bread was a bit unpleasant, loaded with half cooked slices of garlic (id estimate about 3 to 4 cloves ) but sure to keep the vampires away.

First of all, it was a good Pizza but not what I expect when I order an Italian Firewood Pizza. After passing the truck a couple times and only enjoying Dominos and Pizza hut for the last couple weeks. I was really excited to finally get to taste a real firewood pizza again. Sadly I was a bit dissapointed. First... More

Sorry, maybe the pizzas are better when bought from the trailer in Wanaka town, but I can only go by the experience of the stand at the Wanaka Airshow, which I guess is basically the same thing anyway. But for the $28 I paid for just one cheese pizza & two drinks, the pizza wasn't exciting enough. I can get... More

Hi Many thanks for taking the time to review our pizza 5 months after eating it, I would rather you had just mentioned this on the day as I was personally serving all pizzas at the event and would have happily remade the pizza if you were unhappy with it. All our pizzas are $20 for a large 12 inch... More

We ordered a small garlic pizza and a large special pizza for the two of us! We really enjoyed both pizzas, so light and full of flavour!

Wonderful food and a very popular restaurant. However, the portions are not very big and it is quite a wait for a pizza. Service is very good and friendly. Necessary to book beforehand especially over busy periods. Could be booked out for weeks in advance.

Consistently great food, with interesting twists on traditional Italian. Be prepared to go home woodsmoke from the pizza oven!

Stopped here earlier today while walking around and picked up a pizza with a friend. They're totally delicious!! They're made fresh in a genuine brick oven, and the guys working there were super friendly. It's just a short walk to the lakefront from here as well, so it's great to have it on the beach. Good price too, and that... More
