This is a reasonably price restaurant that offers yummy pizzas along with other dishes. You look out at the marina and enjoy watching the boats come in. Nice family atmosphere with lots of outdoor seating. 😎

From the moment we arrived we had great friendly service, as it was busy we were warned our main could be 45 mins which was fine with us we had the calamari to start which didn't take long at all to arrive and was devine!!! then the pizza arrived about 20 mins later and was lovely also.

We ordered takeaway pizza, so can't comment on their other food, but the pizza was bland and tasteless. I ordered a meatlovers and the italian, and we couldn't tell the difference - they had no discerning flavour. At $24 each, they were also very small.

When we arrived we were greeted by a particularly unfriendly woman who advised us that we could not sit on the balcony as they were setting up for a band. All of the other tables were taken, the staff didn't understand how this was a problem and offered no solution. We managed to snag a table and were advised that... More

Hi there, Sorry you were inconvenienced we were setting up for a big night. We stopped serving mains from 3pm and went to pizza only. The balcony area was being set up with a stage and PA and was cleared of all tables. This was an advertised gig and was much anticipated by locals and tourists. The musicians arrived a... More

It is a wee bit on the expensive side but in a fabulous location the children loved watching the stingrays and all the boats. The clam linguini which was actually spagetti was very delicious and the pizza bases are crispy. Dont expect to get anything resembling a Pizza Hutt sized Pizza and you won't be dissapointed

Thanks for coming and enjoying our great spot. The FOH team should not have told you it was Linguini as its actually on the menu as Spaghetti alle Vongolle. More

We have tried the Marina Pizza restaurant twice this summer. The first time it was decidedly average and expensive. The second was two days ago when it was simply awful. We arrive at 12.30 for lunch to be told "sorry we are not serving any of the lunch time mains" and you cant have any fried food as we are... More

Sorry you had a bad time out our way. We change our oil every few days to keep the quality up, our oil change man was running late. Our head chef was laying the head stone for her recently deceased father.......hence no mains for lunch. More

We ordered 3 pizzas for takeaway. We were told 30.mins - it took 50 mins. Small pizza for $16-$19 is indeed very small.

Went for a family dinner, when all the tables got their orders even a big table that came after us, I queried our 5 pizzas we were told it's coming. After being at the restaurant for an hour and a half we eventually get our food, we get told our order was missed.

Very tasty Pizza and refreshing beer - Service was friendly and the wait for the pizza wasn't too long. Nice spot overlooking the boats in the Marina. I will definitely be back for another round next time I'm in Tutukaka.
