Very tasty pizza in a warm and cosy restaurant. Prices are good and the staff are helpful and friendly. Really delicious bread. You can even buy some delicious vangionis pastry on Saturdays from the market which we really enjoyed. Pizza can be takeaway as well.

We have enjoyed wonderful meals on our 4 week trip around the South Island but the meal at Vangioni's was one of the best. Great service. Amazing food. Highly recommended.

We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday boy picked this restaurant, very warm decor and cosy cafe feel. Meals ordered were pizza and pasta .Maybe a bit expensive. Pizza could have been a bit over done as base so thin it did come out a bit chard, although the size was good leaving some overdone bits were a bit... More

This is probably the 4th time we have been to Vangioni's. We can highly recommend the food. Had a variety of tapas and the most delicious cheesecake for dessert on this occasion. My husband had the chocolate molten dessert which was amazing. Definitely not our last visit. Ambience is laid back informal style of eating. Staff are very friendly. Highly... More

Was here for a visiting friends birthday, having been living in akaroa at the time everyone recommend this place for our dinner. The wait staff were rude to my friend and I in regards to my food allergies and we over heard a staff member speaking even ruder to other customers. Our food was nice I will give them that... More

We are sorry to hear about your experience at Vangioni’s. We are surprised to see that you have responded a year after you dined with us. We feel it is a little unfair as it was such a long time ago. As you will see from other reviews on Tripadvisor we get nothing but positive feedback. We take pride in... More

We went on the winter curry night at the Italian restaurant. A very nice cosy restaurant reminiscent of our meal in Rome. The curry was wonderful best ever . I would definitely recommend this place and the locals seem to patronize the place well which says it all. Great food great mine host lovley experience.

We travelled around the South Island for 2 weeks and the meal that we had here was OUTSTANDING! Honestly, we would travel all the way back to Akaroa just to go to Vangionis again. The service was amazing and the "dream team" in the kitchen were fab! The kids even watched the boys in the kitchen prepare their pizza, so... More

We arrived on the off chance that there would be a table at 6.30pm but the restaurant was so popular it was full. However that did not deter the resourcefulness of the staff who quickly assessed the likely availability of tables in the next hour. We were in no hurry so they suggested we enjoy a drink at the bar... More

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and memorable food, what more could you want? My husband and I dined here recently for our Anniversary for only the second time. We had been many years before, but just hadn't got round to a return visit. My husband had pasta and I had delicious Akaroa Salmon. The mains were gorgeous, tasty and just the... More

After an exceptional meal at Vangionis on our first night in Akaroa, we immediately booked ourselves in for the next night as well. Their tapas are a wonderful way to sample all the food combinations they master and the mains are simply unbelievable. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and lively and the staff are cheerful, friendly and clearly love what... More
