Carbonara was so bland, even salt couldn't save it - disappointing considering the price. We could have bought pasta sauce + fettuccine for $6 at countdown and it would've been tastier. We ordered the two most popular pizzas and they were not worth commenting on....More

A Christchurch institution. Spags is a great place for some great pizza. It's a very family friendly place so it's not fancy if that's what you're going for. The pricing is probably slightly steep (~$27 for a large, check Facebook for their specials), I would...More

Decor was a bit outdated and the place was dark but you can't complain when the pizza outs as good as it is. Nice flavours that you can see and two for the price of one! Quick too. Will be back

I always go there when I go to christchurch. Their lunch deal is very affordable and their pizza quality are nice as well. I especially like volcano pizza. Always good for family visit and for group meeting as well. Staffs are usually friendly.

Staff were lovely. Large pizza was the biggest I have seen. Lots to choose from. Nice thin bases. Restaurant was very dark and cold as we walked through.

A familiar haunt for good pizza. Reliably good pizza with a wide variety. Can be cold and rather dark at night, but the food certainly makes up for that.More
