We were looking for the Evening Market and asked the man from this little pizzeria to learn it was cancelled due to weather. It was early, 5.45pm, so we thought we would stop in and have a pizza.
Two tables on footpath, but inside down the back, 3 checked cloth tables welcomes us into a small
interesting dining area. We enjoyed the ambience, the quality of our pizza couldn't be bettered,
a beer and a wine, all at a very reasonable price, overseen and cooked by a very personable and friendly chef owner. Loved it, and next time in Rotorua, will definitely be in again.
Thank you.

Best pizza I've had in new Zealand. Tasted just like home. Chef was very friendly and dining area was cozy and warm. Will definitely be returning over and over again.

Firstly, you need to book! At least at the weekend when we went there. One of the best, if not the best, places to eat your dinner in Rotorua. This is genuine Italian pizzas. And there are nice deserts if you still have space! We had great pinot noir wine with our food, very smooth, if you only like NZ wine. It's small and unsuitable for tours so it has a great atmosphere. The service is very friendly and goodness me, they work hard! Highly recommended!!!

You will love this gorgeous little pizzeria. From the moment you walk in the door to be greeted by the Italian chef, you are taken on a journey to Italy. The open pizza oven's fire is roaring as the chef twirls and crafts the pizza dough into the most divine thin light crust you have ever tasted, ready to adorn your favourite toppings. You are drawn, by the Italian music, through to the intimate little restaurant area where the walls are decorated with a multitude of family photos backdropped with the scenes of Italy and the tables are dressed with the trademark of Italy's red gingham tablecloths. Candles and lanterns line the shelves and as you cosy in for the night you could swear you were dinning in a quant little back street restaurant in Milan. And, to top it all off, their delicious salads make the perfect accompaniment to your pizza together with a glass of wine or cider. All in all, great food, great service, great atmosphere and great price!

Capizzi is a pleasant, relaxing, cosy restaurant and unique to this place. The italian music in the background, the various pictures of narrow streets and open plazzas and best of all the excellent, deliciously tasty pizza. It will put a smile on your face and brighten your day. So take your family and friends and go enjoy a glass of red wine and rotorua's best pizza!
