Description: Spagalimis Pizzeria is the oldest restaurant in Christchurch.Spagalimis was first opened in may 1978 at the corner of Colombo and Kilmore Streets, Christchurch. Initially the restaurant had eight tables, seating approximately 44 persons, with only seven employees, and takeaways available.Due to the very consistent and quality product, demand increased until at peak periods we were unable to satisfy demand. So in may 1991, after an exhaustive search for the correct site, we opened at 155 Victoria Street, Christchurch. This restaurant seats over 130 people and offers dine in, pick up and delivery services.

“OK”
Reviewed 4 July 2013 via mobile

Went to "Spags" on a Thursday evening. Wasnt particularly busy. Carbonara was OK, needed salt. Seafood pizza was OK. We also ordered lemon pepper wedges with the meal which arrived 10min after we had finished our mains... Not impressed since there were only four other tables. Probably more a kids birthday party venue.

“Tastiest pizza in living memory”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

Best pizza I have had in a long, long time. Chose 'Chicken and Cranberry' and am now never looking back!! Small was perfect size for me, although the people I visited with found medium to be a better size. Charming atmosphere in the restaurant. They also have an attached takeaway. Go!

“Great Italian food”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

Went as a guest of some people in Christchurch. Was one of the few places open on a wet Christchurch Sunday night and 9:00pm. There was 8 people in our party. Most had different meals and no-one was disappointed. The quality of the food was outstanding, service good, not great, but the place lacked atmosphere as we were the only ones in there. Would love to see the vibe with another few tables full

“Great pizza”
Reviewed 23 May 2013 via mobile

Hands down the best pizza I have had in NZ. I have been traveling for 2 months now north and South Island and have yet to come across a better pizza than here. I tried both, the petrino and the godfather which were both worth trying. If I had to pick a favorite, the petrino would beat everything as it is a great blend of Gorgonzola cheese, ham, salami and capsicum. I kind of want to get a pizza to go for my next stop.

“Good pizza, but pizza joint service”
Reviewed 14 May 2013 via mobile

Went with a group of seven and we ordered a variety of pizzas. Food quality was above average but service was slow. A medium pizza is actually not very big and would feed one hungry person. Would be a good location to take the kids but not a date or business meal.
