This place seems to be going from strength to strength, and the alchemy of food, service and ambience is really working a treat!! I have to say these are quite possible the best cooked steaks in town! I really can't fault it, every time I've dined it's been seem less (despite being booked out most weekends and busy most week...

My husband and i went on a date night and The Red pizzeria was hands down the best pizza and desert we've had throughout the whangarei area in a long time. Very impressed. Service was tops and the atmosphere was fantastic.

Red was a great choice for our wedding anniversary on a Tuesday night, we had not booked but that was not a problem. They happened to have a busy night with some large groups, but this did not impact on us unduly. The staff were very professional in their delivery of service to us, with a friendly style. We enjoyed... More

We heard about this place through a friend and shes a very fussy diner and i was meant to apply for a cheffing position. What an amazing place to eat. We turn up with no table booked and were seated straight away. We could see why bookings could have been essential as it did not take long to fill up... More

Had dinner here the other night with 9 rally technicians. We didn't call ahead of time, as we we did not know what time they would be done work. We were promptly greeted, and a table was set up for us in a very reasonable amount of time. It was a Wednesday night, so not packed, but by no means... More

Huge amount... More

Our teenage daughter is a regular here for her friends birthdays and persuaded us to try it. I'm glad we did! Pizzas are delish and the desserts are yummy and beautifully presented. I had the cheesecake which I thoroughly enjoyed. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. We'll be back!

They say you only get ONE IMPRESSION for a reason and this place is an epic fail! We stood at the bar waiting to be seated/acknowledged. What does the bar guy do (young guy with blonde hair) he asks to serve the people behind us! Ignores us once they are gone and stands there drying glasses. Then unable to bear... More

This reviewer has based their review on an experience they allegedly had 8 months previous - not recently as is lead to believe by the posting date. Management feels this is an unfair review and should not be recognized as it does not support our current customer service standards. More
