I love this place so much that everytime we have family over to stay and we visit Rotorua this is a must do. I love the quaint, no frills, tables and the freshest salad with the most delicious wood-fired pizza I've ever had. 10/10 - keep doing what you're doing!

I worked in a pizzeria for a year, myself and my former manager saw this quirky little place with a small ice cream section out front. When we took a closer look realised they had a wood fired pizza oven. The smell is very homely, and there's a lovely relaxed atmosphere about the place. The pizza oven lets off a... More

I was walking down Rotorua's high street when the familiar flicker and smokey aroma of a wood fired oven caught my attention. I used to manage one of the top Pizzerias in the UK and was delighted to find one so far from home. Spoke with the pizzaiolo about the restaurant and he was generous with his time and knowledge...

Very popular place! Hadn't made a reservation so said we'd be fine sitting outside - which was actually the town car park! Before our food came, we asked if it was possible to move inside, and it was, so we did. Great pizzas. Rustic decor => nice atmosphere. Friendly staff despite being very busy.

a bit of a favorite of mine these days. Nice thin base doesn't suffocate the topping. Delicious ingredients all combine to make quite a memorable meal. Ill always ask for extra pesto on the Pollo Pizza.

We rocked up to an empty restaurant, and (probably due to having 3 young kids) were offered to sit in the "garden". The "garden" was really a concrete area next to a large car park, with two sloping wooden tables. Other than that the pizza and garlic bread were excellent, and reasonably well priced.

The pizza here is beautiful, a little on the salty side which I think they can reduce from the sauce, but apart from that, delicious. The kids loved it, we dined in and the wood fire smell and layout made you feel as if you were in Italy.

Run by really friendly people , the smell coming from this place is enough to drag you in . Our pizzas were divine . The chef made mine ( marinier ) and made a small hole in the middle when taking it out . He was adamant that he make me another but I declined ( they insisted I have... More
