We ordered takeout for a group of 10 of us. We got a contadina, a crudaiola, a margherita and two calabrese. Pizzas were delicious - not huge though, and we would have probably needed a few more for our group, had we all have been...More

Not sure why such high marks, although it is a cute place. I think they might be a bit heavy on the sauce because the crust is so soggy in the center. The outside crust had a nice chew, but could use just a pinch...More

Hi there asygrl, Thank you for your review. We are sorry our pizza didn't meet your expectations, our pizza is made in the Neapolitan style. This means the crust is very soft and is meant to be eaten with a knife & fork or folded...More

We popped here for lunchtime pizza. We had some warmed olives to start with a glass of wine which was nice. Prosciutto pizza with rocket was quite delicious. Definitely a yum place to go.

Really fantastic pizza in this intimate cafe. Great selection of toppings on a nice thin crust pie, baked in a lovely super-hot oven to get it perfectly crisp.

I went here on Saturday night for dinner. This place has the best tasting pizza in all of Rotorua and beyond. Really groovy little restaurant and you can see the chef cooking the pizzas. They have really great Italian wine too. Highly recommended!

We are travelling since more than half a year and there are many places around the world claiming to offer "real Italian" pizza (or that's what many reviewers say about questionable pizza places). Usually I'm in Italy a few times every year, so I'm a...More

We enjoyed our meal at Pizzeria Imperfetto. The warmed olives were really nice as a starter and the serving was generous. We then shared a capricciosa pizza and salad. The flavours were great and portions generous. My only (very slight!) comment would be that the...More

Second time here and just as divine as last time, highly recommend. For the kids ask for the fungi pizza without mushrooms as this offers them the nice hand and cheese used to - traditional pizza
