I went to that "Pizzeria" with 2 friends, just because we really wanted a pizza and the Menu looked quite nice, expensive, but ok...
We came in and were totally surprised of the "service", because there were no service!
The girl at the bar who took the order didn"t seem sure about the questions we asked her about the menu, but at least she was friendly.
So we went to a table and had to grab cuttlery, glasses, water and so one, because there was pretty much nothing on the table.
The wait for the food was ok because they seemed to be busy (whyever...) but then the shock:
The older woman alias the german owner came to our table with our 3 pizzas. When she asked who is getting the Godfather Pizza we looked to each other because we were not sure what she said, that obviously took her too long, so she smashed the plates at our table and said "Damn it, thats hot" (but in german) and left the table without giving us the pizzas we ordered, so we had to sort it out.
The Pizza was ok but for that price really dissapointing, as I get the same Pizza at a Fast Food- Pizza Service for half the price and a better taste as well.
The free Wifi which we got offered was working at the beginning, but the unfriendly owner just turned it off after I while (what we could see, because she went to the wifi router, then went back and the wifi wasnt working anymore.
So we went to the bar and asked the girl and she was like "Yeah sry, we have some problems with the wifi today"... jey sure...

So all together:
Bad / no service
unfriendly staff
lieing to costumers
food ok, but for that price dissappointing

This review is written from a german Backpacker who is working in Hospitality as well and is just ashamed of this german- owned "restaurant",

The counter help was almost rude and unfriendly. Not very warm and welcoming. The food was okay. We only had the pizza. The crust was bland but the topping very pretty good. Just an average experience overall.

Very much service with a sneer.

We inconvenienced the staff by walking into the cafe.

Food average.

Service very slow. 45 minutes for two toasties and they were not busy.

Won't be back.

We did the glow worm cave tour and came back to town at about 9:15 PM or so. Well, in Te Anau, there aren't any places open for dinner at that hour. Or so we were told. We drove around. Stopped at a couple of restaurants which were closing, and then finally came to Naturally Fiordland (where we had already had lunch the same day). It was open, even if only for pizza. I think the only restaurant in Te Anau that does justice to "open till late" sign that everyone seems to have on their shopfronts.

The staff was very friendly. The pizza was great, and I am not just saying that because we were hungry! Wifi is free.
