The restaurant is lovely, lovely decor and very friendly servers. I loved the chips but wasn't too crazy on the pizza, but my husband loved it, so a bit hit and miss there. But it's worth giving it a try, quite nice overall.

Thank you for your review. Much appreciated. Spags has serving pizzas since 1978 in Christchurch. That is a long time for a restaurant. The famous Spags chips are a big draw card. Ciao.

Spagalimis Pizzeria is the oldest restaurant in Christchurch.Spagalimis was first opened in may 1978 at the corner of Colombo and Kilmore Streets, Christchurch. Initially the restaurant had eight tables, seating approximately 44 persons, with only seven employees, and takeaways available.Due to the very consistent and quality product, demand increased until at peak periods we were unable to satisfy demand. So in may 1991, after an exhaustive search for the correct site, we opened at 155 Victoria Street, Christchurch. This restaurant seats over 130 people and offers dine in, pick up and delivery services.
