Pretty authentic Italian pizza cooked in wood fired oven. Small casual dining place. Friendly service.

We ordered takeout for a group of 10 of us. We got a contadina, a crudaiola, a margherita and two calabrese. Pizzas were delicious - not huge though, and we would have probably needed a few more for our group, had we all have been starving. Would order from here again for sure - the crust was fab!

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 of salt.

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 into a parcel. Although it should not be soggy a slice will definitely not hold its shape when picked up. If you google Neapolitan Pizza there is plenty of information regarding the subject.
The salt content of our dough is actually on the high side for pizza dough recipes so i'm not sure why you thought it needed more. Just not to your taste perhaps.
We hope you enjoy the rest of your trip!
Ciao,
The team at Imperfetto

We popped here for lunchtime pizza. We had some warmed olives to start with a glass of wine which was nice.
Prosciutto pizza with rocket was quite delicious. Definitely a yum place to go.

Busy little place, we came here after seeking for a pizza place in Rotorua. It was TripAdvisor #5. Friday night was fully booked so we booked for Saturday. It made up to our expectations. We had a platter to share as entree with focaccia bread, salami, muzzarela de buffala, tomatoes and olives. All delicious, but it came with chilly sauce on top of the olives and it didn’t specify on the menu. So my kids had to spit it out as it was too hot for them. This was the only down of the experience. We had pizza afterwards and it was just perfect!! The dough, the tomato sauce, the cheese, parma ham... everything just right in its place. Yummm
