We're not food critics and on this occasion we were starving so a decent meal and service would have gone a long way ... unfortunately it was a disaster from the beginning. The young guy behind the counter couldn't take our order as he didn't know how to work the till. He had to get someone to replace him after... More

Really nice oven fired pizzas, great service, hard to fault. Location was good too, like the opening windows. Good shop selling all the condiments, cheese, olive oil etc. We'll be back...

Mediterranean Food Warehouse has a restaurant and a bulk food store at the back where you can buy pastas, flours, pickles, meats and so much more. I go there to buy a big bag of white rice flour.

We were very disappointed from the moment we arrived, not even shown to our table, just pointed in the direction. Only two other couples in the restaurant so not busy. We had to ask to be served then the wait for our meals was far too long. We both had pasta meals which were disappointing, mine was find the seafood... More

Visited for pizza on a relatively quiet Saturday evening. Our order was taken at exactly 5.30p.m and with a five yr old bored out of her brain we finally got our two large pizzas at six p.m!! One seafood,one chicken. Chicken pizza was nice, seafood not so good. The base was soggy, the seafood was mussels, shrimp and rubbery calamari.(no... More

Regularly (once every two months or so) visit with wife and young child. Great range of tasty food (although, not too keen on the Spinach Florentine pizza!). Staff always pleased to see you and wish you a good day when leaving. Good coffee. Well-stocked shop attached, so you can be inspired by the food to buy some ingredients to create... More

It would be better if the atmosphere is more like Italian. It is so cool that it is not attractive to stay longer than needed. A shame as they have such great products. The icecream or gelato's are great

I found this restaurant rather boring and food tastless, wouldn't be too keen to go back. Had to wait a long time for pizza also.

This is an amazing place to have lunch. Friendly staff. Really nice, "Different" pizzas. Gelato if you have a sweet tooth. Nice loos. (so many places fall down on an important part of your dining experience, the bathroom.) will go again and again and again, as we live in Paraparaumu. Get the loyalty card. Vince and Lisa Eggels

We've been here four or five times and our family (with one exception) love the pizza and gelato. This time we got a couple of complimentary drinks too! Very nice antipasto selection with delicious cheeses, rice balls, and olives. Margherita pizza for the kids, I had the calabrese (chili hot) and the Pollo pleasure was the best of all. The... More
