Could this be the best pizza in NZ?! Well, it’s definitely up there - fresh, tasty and authentic - reminded us of pizza in Italy. Will definitely be going back for more!

Amazing pizza produced in a wood fired oven. Authentic, tasty, and a surprise to the taste buds. Highly recommended and I will return next time I’m in Rotorua, this restaurant is placed just off food street, and in my opinion you should love for this...More

Not sure why such high marks, although it is a cute place. I think they might be a bit heavy on the sauce because the crust is so soggy in the center. The outside crust had a nice chew, but could use just a pinch...More

Hi there asygrl, Thank you for your review. We are sorry our pizza didn't meet your expectations, our pizza is made in the Neapolitan style. This means the crust is very soft and is meant to be eaten with a knife & fork or folded...More
