Nice traditional place, lovely woodfired pizzas and cocktails. Worth a visit. You can dine outside with heaters or indoors if you prefer.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

There were 4 of us and each had a different dish - napoletana pizza, gnocchi, canneloni and orecchiette pasta. Everyone was well pleased with their chosen dish. The helpings, although looking small at first sight, turned out to be sufficient, without leaving one feeling too full.

“Authentic delicious Italian fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Certainly the best Pizzeria in Wanaka but so much more.......
Great atmosphere, lovely staff and fantastic food. Booking is advisable especially for bigger parties as can get busy. Pizzas are wonderful - thin crispy base and a great choice of tasty toppings and there is a take away option available. Great service. Great restaurant.
