Great pizza

On a lovely night we were sat outside for dinner. The place is very busy and lots of people. Inside it was smokey from the kitchen so we preferred to sit outside. Service was a little slow but that was ok as we had lots to catch up on. Food was lovely and tasty. 2 people had pizza and was... read more

Was OK for a night out , nothing I couldn't have made at home. hard to know what you have spent at end of night as you take your empty bottles of drink up after you have drunk them to pay.

The food and wine were perfectly fine -- I had the pumpkin gnocchi -- but the service was somewhat sluggish. Folks seated after me received their food earlier. Not sure why that would be. Bustling atmosphere and very casual -- family style seating at long tables.

Pipi's is an iconic landmark in Havelock North standing out in its pink glory. The pizzas are sublime and the atmosphere more like something from out of a much busier metropolitan hub than a small NZ town. It is always busy but the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Sitting with others at long pews means you get to talk... More

We dined here over the New Year holiday period and had a fabulous meal. I had the fish cakes and my husband had the lamb pie. It is a casual restaurant with a great atmosphere. It is worth while going here.

Comfy, relaxed, great atmosphere, good food & service.... & a good recipe book on sale as well! The menu was not extensive & seating was quirky but reasonably comfy. Unpretentious but lives up to its excellent reputation. A "casual" place to dine.

This restaurant is great - our kids love eating at Pipi's when they visit Hawkes Bay and our friends do too. We are regulars - there is a decent variety of options and most are reasonably priced. The deserts are tops - something many restaurants do not do well. The only downside - there are times a table just isn't... More
