Always enjoyable and a good value, the pizza and pasta will keep both the foodies and traditionalists happy. Crisp salads, fine tiramisu, buffalo mozz, nice Italian reds and limocello near the door. The lasagna and gorganzola pizzas are both sublime and the chocolate pizza definitely works. We love this place. Good for families in the early evening.

Good pizza and pasta dishes. If you want Italian and you are in Nelson, this is the only place to consider. We've had several pizzas and pasta dishes from here over the last few months - all takeaway. Good selection of pizzas (15-20ish) and of the several i've had, very good. make sure you like thin crust.

pasta dishes also very good - decent portion and tasty. you get to select type of pasta - nice option. Service I had usually ok but recent experience was covered by temporary help that got my order wrong. no worries, they quickly fixed it and sent us home with some bread for our troubles.

definitely will continue to frequent when Italian or pizza takeaway is on the cards.

Original Pizza direct fresh and hot, The taste and the smell is wonderful. Made in a original Italian Wood fired Oven. The starter, the Main and the dessert was like a italian poem. The end with a original Limocello was superb. WOW whas tha a great meal.
Thanks a lot for this italian evening in New Zealand.
