I was missing a true Italian pizza as a European living in NZ. I tried few places within the whole country and never felt real success of finding anything similar. Then my colleague recommended Stefano's... Well, I love him for it! The pizza tastes the same like in Italy!!! Obviously homemade dough and tomato sauce, real mozzarella and fresh ingredients.....

Our host at the B&B recommended Stefano's and he was correct. One of the best pizza's you will find anywhere. Delicious thin crust which melted in your mouth with delicious toppings. The pizza sizes themselves are generous. Think of a medium as a large and their large... well that is enormous. Very good value, quick service and easily located in... More

Awesome pizza! Thin crisp crust with good base of tomato sauce and cheese. My wife and I split the veggie supreme (mushroom, onion, olives, capiscum, feta). We could not remember the last time we had had a pizza this good...maybe never. Stefano's also has a modest selection of wines. Let me taste 2 before I settled on the Toscano Rosso,... More

The pizza was just like they serve in Italy but not anymore. Not the same since the ownership changed.

You can get a filling small pizza for $8-$15, and it is worth every cent! Stefano's use high quality ingredients, and have a cabinet of delicious cakes and desserts

If you take it for what it is, this is good value, kiwi style. We came here on a midweek night, and it was pretty full. Plastic tables, order at the counter, no fanfare type place, with a pizza oven tucked over one side. The pizzas were huge! Not particularly authentic, in that NZ ham was offered instead of prosciutto,... More

Stefano,s used to be the place you went to and hung out for a pizza. It seems Stefano has moved onto better things and there is a new crew turning out the food. There were six of us who wanted a pizza after watching the movie. I ordered that simplest of pizzas the Margherita. This has been a favorite of... More

Cheap, delicious Pizza followed by a movie, or grab to-go and walk over to the river for a gorgeous evening picnic. Still haven't found better Pizza than Stefano's and prices are crazy good value. Just find time to go, but may pay to book.

Thank Jason M
