Excellent pizza

I've been here a few times now, and it's always a treat. Their pizza is excellent, and we always get the dessert pizza (ingenius) to finish off a delicious meal. Service is good. The atmosphere is usually quite busy, and isn't the best place for a quiet meal, but is a great place for good food and... read more

This is what New Zealand eating out experiences were like in 1980. Minimal service, sticky tables and items unavailable on the menu by 7.30pm. Apparently everyone before had ordered the crumbed schnitzel parmigiana (yet a check of all the tables of those dining did not reveal anyone eating anything other than pizza). So I was forced to eat a pretty... More

We have eaten here a number of times and like their uniquely topped pizzas. My fav is the beef and béarnaise.

We had pizza delivered as the restaurant was full. The pizza was nice, although a bit overpriced. The pizzas were a bit different from other pizza places. The garlic bread was very tasty.

New to this country I was looking for somewhere new to try. BEST DECISION EVER! My partner is from Palmerston North & suggested this place. I was definitely not upset. The pizza was absolutely wonderful. I highly suggest this place to everyone in the mood for great pizza!

For sit-down dinners, the ambiance is great. Soft lighting, great staff. For take-aways, very good value for money.

the food is always great here and especially like the lasagne dish. Atmosphere is good and the restaurant is very quaint in size. I would recommend booking as it does seem to be nusy on the days it is open.

We ate out here on a Thursday night, just popped in and the restaurant was almost fully booked which is always a good sign. It is definitely a casual place, no frills in the decor or setting, but the essential were right on - friendly and quick service, a big selection of gourmet pizza and other meal types, and well...

This is a simple restaurant which serves good pizza and pasta meals. Not ideal if you don't like kids as this is a popular place in Palmerston North for taking the children out to eat.
