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!

Looked for a BYO first and foremost, but oh the food. Fabulous food. Beautifully cooked and presented and an excellent serving. Relaxed atmosphere. Don't go too late, we were first around 6.15 and over the next hour it was full with people waiting.

We hadn't made reservations anywhere and ended up walking around town looking for a place to eat. The ferry captain had mentioned this place so we checked it out. It had a take-out atmosphere, but it was a gourmet pasta meal! I haven't had ravioli this good in a long time!

Enjoyed a great dinner out in whitianga, with a lot of places to chose from we were blown away with the outstanding service and left with a satisfying full belly! Recommend the MVP with added chicken.
