“Tasty pizza and desserts with great service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2012

My partner and I dined here on our second of three nights in Te Anau. We were well looked after by the wait staff (the children of the family who runs the restaurant I believe) and though I can't recall the pizzas we chose, they were both fantastic. Our garlic bread starter was nothing special but the tiramisu and gelatoo to finish were devine.

“A bit overpriced and underwhelming”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

We had seafood pastas which were ok but nothing special. The pasta was overcooked and the mussels slightly tough. However the meal was filling and the garic bread was great

“Best food in town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

Te Anau is a tourist layover place. It seems there are few restaurants compared to the number of hotel rooms, and some were closed (economy, no doubt). This place doesn't look like much, but the pizza was excellent and the staff attentive.

My ratings are based on comparisons in this town.

“Somewhat disappointing pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

I think we came at a night when the restaurant put on two new staff members. We had an order mix-up and then when the pizzas arrived we found the sauces to be dull and lifeless.

glacialrock, Owner at Ristorante Pizzeria Paradiso Da Toni, responded to this review, January 12, 2012
Hi David, Sorry if our Pizza was not to your taste, Our sauces are simple and contain the best Italian Tomatoes and extra Virgin Olive oil we can source along with Fresh Basil and salt from the Mediterranean, our aim is to give our customers the most authentic Italian wood fired pizza we can give them hand crafted by our Pizza Chef who we bring in from Italy. Our toppings are of the same ilk the best we can source. The sauce is very much a carrier for the flavor's of the toppings and hence it is crucial that it compliments these flavors rather than overpower everything.

Regards Finn
