“Excellent and unique pizza, lovely pasta and cordial service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

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.

“Yep, best place in Nelson for pizza and pasta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

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.
