One of my favourite cafes. Just around the corner from work and the WiFi has been a saviour everytime Vodafone business line is down.

I had not been here for years and was pleasantly surprised when I dropped in on a sunny day walk. An amazing range of authentic foods and great service. I tried a couple of things and found a great recipe and ingredients. Excellent.

I went here for lunch and tried the Roma and Armatrice pizza. This is the most authentically Italian pizza I've had in NZ. Being from Chch I haven't had any pizza this good since being in Italy.

As a family we enjoyed our meals very much. The pizza was brilliant and the Italian dishes were very tasty and well prepared. We would recommend the spaghetti with the cockles. Yum!

Fabulous, authentic pizza on delicious light base. Could have had a bit more basil on my margarita but extra buffalo mozarella made up for it. Vege pizza was also really good. Good beer and friendly service. Nice coffee.

Even though Newtown was busy it was easy to park. The dining area is big so there are free tables but there's still a nice feel to the place. The food is extraordinary good. The menu undersells, listing simple ingredients, as if it's a side....More

A group of us have all been here on separate occasions but we all recently heard about this "Meter Mondays" where you get a meter of pizza for $55 so we booked a table! You get a choice of any three pizzas on the menu...More

Mediterranean Foods offers a wide-range of imported goods including a wide range of pasta, wine, cheeses, meats and so much more. Along with this, 2016 marks an exciting year for Mediterranean Foods. Not only does the business have a fresh new look, but after 16 years the original Newtown Warehouse and Pizzeria has undergone major renovations. Using the term Trattoria (casual neighbourhood restaurant) the menu now includes fantastic regional Italian dishes, a bar, and of course the much loved wood - fired pizza.
