Ordered the medium vegetarian pizza and the medium meat lovers pizza for a take away dinner. Husband didn't like the meat lovers, not enough sauce for his taste, and while I enjoyed the vegetarian pizza what we got was not worth the $51.50 price.

Ruffiino's is a small Italian restaurant in Paihia. The pizzas were fresh and tasted delicious. This is definitely worth a visit if you're in town.

If the pizza's were less on the cheese and more on the flavour then its a winner! Still had a great feed, thanks

We were really hungry and our margarita pizza tasted SO good, however, the jumbo I felt was a little expensive for what you get. Atmosphere was ok too, nothing to write home about.

I took 27 year 10 students to this restaurant and that were awesome. We had pre-booked so the place was set up for us and the food arrived quickly and was piping hot. They catered for our vegetarian and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks heaps guys

We had this the first night we were in Paihia. We were staying close so picked it up. We are pizza lovers so may have been a bit too picky. Mine was a vegetarian and was passable. My partner had a supreme one and, as mine, passable. The crust was nice though. We didn't have their pizza again.
