My wife and I were celebrating my birthday and decided to have dinner at Formaggio’s restaurant. Great choice. We loved our starters and the main dishes were outstanding. The team at Formaggio’s were very attentive and helpful with our selections. I highly recommend this restaurant.

great prices, me and a friend shared so many dishes loved it. Amazing dessert too! Only thing we did not like is that it was super loud, the hall kind of echoes but everything else was great.

My favourite restaurant in Christchurch. The food is absolutely delicious every time, the ambience is great and the staff are SO nice. You can tell that this restaurant really cares about the quality of the food and experience they provide. Vegan menu is amazing with...lots of divine options. Beautiful!More

The meal was absolutely beautiful, the ambience was lovely, but mostly the staff were what made our night so pleasant. Hana and Marcus were just wonderful and so attentive.

Not being a food critic myself, and neither herself and themselves with me either, we were open minded, but we all agreed that it was the best Italian food we had eaten since Italy. It was all seasoned properly, delicious and presented in good time...by the excellent, friendly front of house team. Formaggios doesn't aim to be a Michelin star restaurant, just to serve great food in pleasant surroundings at which it excels. The size of the pizza even stumped the young one, which is saying something! Excellent evening out and no sour grapes from these happy diners!More

One of the best Italian restaurants in Christchurch. I had from here the risotto ai funghi, della casa salad, spaghetti bolognese and the yummy ortolana and salmone pizza. I also had a really yummy tiramisu. I saw that formaggio has lots of vegetarian, vegan and...GF options for who needs it. Lovely atmosphere, great service and food!More
