Why don't they have one of these in Melbourne? This was one of my favourite places to go for pizza!

Highly recommend the 'The Roast' pizza....YUM!!

A great atmosphere and good service. Definitely will be back next time we are in Christchurch.

The restaurant is a bit isolated in a rebuilding city but well worth the trip, plenty of parking. I don't think the ambiance is as good as their original (now demolished) premises but the pizzas and the staff are as good as ever. The place has all the signs of being a buzzing venue at night but I cant comment on that.....far too old! As a daytime place to eat and have a drink it would be hard to beat.

I dined here with a large group of friends for dinner and was very impressed. The atmosphere was great and service was exceptional. They have a wide variety of pizzas to choose from and we ordered a bunch of different ones to share, they were all delicious and quite large (we had left overs, which the staff happily boxed up for us to take home). Highly recommend this place for a group dinner - might be a bit noisy for a romantic night out.

The old pre-quake Winnie Bagoes off Manchester was our favourite family restaurant in Christchurch. As such, we were eager to try the new downtown location. Our eagerness eventually turned to disappointment.

Remember the charm and homeliness of the old restaurant? Well, none of that at the new one. Just a big bare room with the continual slamming of the front door providing the only interesting element. No worries. The decor isn't a big deal.

Worse, we stood at the reception counter for several minutes without so much as a "we'll be right with you" or even eye contact from any of the staff. And the restaurant was only 20-25% occupied!

OK, still no worries. We're ready to love the place. Now we're finally seated - and then totally forgotten. After at least 10 minutes I finally stood up and waved my arms over my head to get the attention of the four wait staff huddled around the cash register.

Our waitress was friendly and apologised for the delay so, OK, no problem. We order our pizzas and then wait and wait and wait. The kids are hungry and getting grouchy. Again, the place is not anywhere near capacity. Of the four tables occupied when we came in, two had their food and another ordered after we did. We cannot understand the delay and have given up trying to make excuses for the poor service.

The flat bread and the pizzas were awesome. The best in town (the only reason I gave three stars) but that didn't make up for everything else. The pizzas at Tutto Bene may not be quite as good but they're bigger, the atmosphere is much better and the service is much better. I'm sorry to say that it will be Tutto Bene for us next time.

(By the way, Winnie Bagoes at Ferrymead is still fine. Just a long way for us to go.)
