Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Best pizza in the Bay. Convivial atmosphere, cool decor, great service. We’ve been coming to Pipi for years - the all the food is consistently good, not just the pizza

Pipi is a quirky Italian restaurant Eg pink and icecream is served in a cardboard container etc. The variety of different pizzas is extensive. There is a great wine list, plenty of Italian classics and some great desserts. I can recommend the meat balls. We...went quite early in the evening and being family friendly there were plenty of noisey kids. The service was excellent, the decor interesting( very pink). Price point was a little high for the mains.More

Visited here while we were staying in Havelock North. Outstanding, tasty pizzas with a great vibe and service. Certainly a place to stop in and have a pizza. Highly recommend. Will return when we are back in the Hawkes Bay.

We got take away pizza from Pipi’s and they were amazing. Best pizza we’ve had in ages. Favourites were the tuna pizza and Capricossa. Yum!!

Ordered pizza online for delivery while staying in Havlock North and the delivery driver was so lovely! The pizza comes in a cute pink pizza box. The photo doesn’t do the pizza justice because it was perfectly cooked, flavours were delicious and the slight crunch...to the crust was yum 🤤 we had the margarita pizza 🍕More

We had an amazing casual family dinner, the pizzas are great and the gnocchi was outstanding. Kids were given coloring in and the wine was fab. Will definitely be back

Arrived on a Friday for early dinner, seating choices are limited in that you can choose bench seats, stools, some chairs and tables designed for, well we're not quite sure... We're told by friends that this is one of the attractions off this place, not...convinced. Sat down drinks brought, although if you wanted soft drink or beers - help yourself from the fridge! Light starter, and then mains. In between courses the napkins were removed and... no offer of replacements, not a good look, and wouldn't take much to rectify... Could we have water? Yes there is a fountain, help yourself. OK. Did so from a way too powerful tap splashing water all over the place. Desert arrived. Not often you have to unpack your ice cream from a box, pour your - now cold - coffee onto it and try and eat with an oversized soup spoon. And all this whilst sitting on a really narrow, uncomfortable bench that simply slides all over the place on the painted concrete floor. We noticed other diners come in, eat quickly and go, one lady loudly admonishing the wait staff for the really uncomfortable seating arrangements. OK the food was not bad, but everything else leaves a lot to be desired. Our suspicion is that it gets rave reviews for take away pizza, but not for in house dining. Go again? No, we'll give it a miss.More

We arrived just before 6 and Pipi was already packed. We waited about 5-10min for a table and then managed to grab a spot. The food was delicious- pizza bases were fantastic and the toppings tasty. We also decided to treat ourselves for dessert. Yum...yum -will be backMore

Good vibe and delisious Pizza🤤 I was recommended Pipi from a work mate, and Pipi defs lived up to its hype plus more, and would go back in a heartbeat 🙌🏾 We got a garlic pizza to start which was very filling and the pizza...base was so fresh 👌🏾 Then we got a large half pulled pork & half pepironi. It was yum esp the pulled pork with roasted apple and caramelised onion 🤤 If you’re a local get on down a try it, and if you’re visiting make Pipi a must go to spot to eat.More

Wonderful atmosphere and service. We had mixed reviews on food at our table, the pizza was excellent but the two pasta dishes were good but not excellent. The steak looked very popular with lots of people ordering it. We would definitely go back, if was...worth the visit.More

Arrived Thursday and ordered 2 pizzas at 7pm. Waited 40 minutes for food to get to the table. Only good point was that they stuffed up the bill in our favor. The pizzas were ok.

Help yourself to a beer, Prosecco or soft drink from the fridge, reasonable wine list and some outstanding dishes. Garlic pizza bread was the best we’ve had anywhere. Great spot for families or any other dining option.
