After sightseeing all over Papeete on a hot afternoon we went inside L'Api'zzeria to cool off and just buy a couple of beers. The menu looked so inviting that we got great tasting pizza to go along with our beer. The olive oil that's infused with chili peppers is delicious and adds a great taste to the already great tasting... More

A full service restaurant with friendly staff and good food. While on vacation in Tahiti my wife and I had a delightful lunch. The pizza was tasty and the salad was fresh. We both liked the salad dressing.

After two weeks on the Aranui5 and another week in Moorea and Tahiti this was our last place to eat before catching a midnight flight. We were ready for some Italian food. We went early around 4:30 and at first were the only four in the restaurant. It looked like only one lady was working at the time because during... More

My last night in French Polynesia, so I went out with my sleeping 6month old to enjoy that last bit of a warm summer night. Staff were friendly & accommodating. I ordered a mini pizza & a side salad. Mini pizza is ~25cm diameter & more than sufficient for 1 person. I had the "four seasons" & was absolutely delicious!... More

Giuseppe is the perfect host and runs L'Ápi'zzeria to a high standard. Decor, staff, service, and above all...the food. Every dish a delight. Yum!

Be sure to make a reservation for a table outside in the area where there are fans. The inside seating is very hot and is unpleasant for dinner because it is hot. We had margarita pizza and salad which was wonderful!! Highly recommend the pizza!!

The pizza at this restaurant is delicious! Located further down the water front than the markets, it is worth walking to in order to eat amongst the locals. Reasonable prices however not the cheapest pizza around

While shopping in Papeete we stumbled upon this gem. Lots of locals were dining so we thought "it must be good". We shared a salad and a pizza. Plenty for two! It was simply outstanding! We've been to Europe and this was as authentic as you get. You won't be disappointed!

While stopping in Papeete on our way to and from Bora Bora, we had dinner at L'Api'zzeria. We nearly passed by, thinking it was merely a pizza parlor. But were glad we didn't as it sports a very nice Italian menu. The owner and chef were both Italian and the food was very good. The atmosphere lacks in that the... More
