There are a wealth of Italian dining options in Wellington, and regular diners will traverse the city and Petone for good service and food. So it is how this restaurant rates on the broader Wellington scene. We have been regular, perhaps not always frequent, and...More

Mediterranean Foods offers a wide-range of imported goods including a wide range of pasta, wine, cheeses, meats and so much more. Along with this, 2016 marks an exciting year for Mediterranean Foods. Not only does the business have a fresh new look, but after 16 years the original Newtown Warehouse and Pizzeria has undergone major renovations. Using the term Trattoria (casual neighbourhood restaurant) the menu now includes fantastic regional Italian dishes, a bar, and of course the much loved wood - fired pizza.
