Real Pizza

If you believe Pizza is fat crust, heavy on the sugar and salt with piles of toppings, don't bother.

Good basic Italiano classics in cheap and cheerful decor. Family satisfied and wallet not hammered. You won't be disappointed as long as you're not expecting Michelin stars.

Dino's do really nice pizzas and pasta, but the ambience is pretty tragic - needs updating and a good clean

We stopped in on our visit to Whitianga. Smelt good so we decided for take-away pizza down on the waterfront. The pizza was freshly made (it took 30 minutes to cook!), but nothing special when compared to other pizza experiences. Normal pizza oven, not wood fired. The base was a good thin base, but lacked consistent crunch. Perhaps too much... More

Great pizza! My partner & I were in Whitianga for the weekend, so decided to try some local pizza. I was happy that they had a gluten free large base :) however if they had a small GF base it would of been preferred. All in all though, our tummies & taste buds were very satisfied!
