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.

We obviously picked a busy time waiting 5 minutes to be seated, not a problem. Staff very friendly and order taken promptly. 1 hour 15 minutes later a mediocre pizza appeared.

The service was slow, but the staff super nice, the wine selection good, and the wood-fired pizza really top notch. Plus, a really cute dog.

Te Anau on a Summer evening with 1,000 tourists all trying to find somewhere to eat at the same time. We had tried 2 places then seen the line here but no worries as the owner let's nobody escape and we were seated quickly with...water and menus in front of us within a minute. Both had pizza, it was excellent and though it may have taken 20-25 minutes to arrive I was happy to sit back and watch the owner in action, eyes everywhere scanning the room, particularly enjoyed her shooing one customer off the vintage car by the door ( the red one with the sign that says look but don't touch) and the customer who stood right by the outdoor eating area and lit up, she was on him before the cigarette reached his mouth. Minor point that lets them down is the well worn menus, first impressions etc etcMore

Stopped off for the night in te anau and came here for dinner. Food was fine - what you’d expect from an Italian restaurant. Service was average at the most. Upon entry, we were asked how many meals we’d be purchasing. Not ‘how are you?’...or ‘welcome’ or ‘thanks for coming’… but how many meals are you purchasing. Strange. Clearly the only focus for the old lady in charge was how much money she’d be getting off us. There is even a minimum spend per customer, stated on the menu. Strange for an unpretentious average Italian restaurant. Anyway, ignored that, just wanted a relaxing easy meal after a long day of hiking. It was many things, but relaxing it wasn’t. Food took nearly an hour to come. Then had to witness the old lady and her chef husband/boyfriend (I assume) run out and scream at some poor tourists just for sitting in the car on display outside the restaurant for a picture. “Get out the f***ing car”. “Are you “f***ing stupid”. Just an insight to the polite manor in which the chef likes to treat his paying customers. An average dinner with a very sour ending. Yelling and swearing at customers for the whole restaurant to see. Unprofessional and outright rude. Greedy, mean owners. Advise strongly against eating here. Go somewhere else in te anau, you’ll thank me for it!!More

Yum! Make reservations- this place is crowded! We had the mediterranean salad (yum), a Margherita pizza (super yum) and the spicy chook pizza (my husband said it was very good). No dessert. Everything was excellent, very flavorful, I would definitely go back.

Popped in on a busy Friday evening. Staff friendly and super efficient. We sat on table one and watching the staff as loads of pizzas came out of the oven was a lesson in how a restaurant should be run.

Dined here twice during our stay in town. The Caprese and Greek salads were both fabulous. We tried two different types of pizzas, and both were great. It’s nice to be able to get tasty wood fired pizza abroad!

It was really busy when we arrived but didn’t have to wait too long for a table. Staff very nice & promptly served. We had a Pizza & Pasta dish, both delicious. The Pizzas are quite large. You may need to book at some times.

Was here on a Sunday and the business didnt open until 3:30 but staff member seated us 30 minutes early which was appreciated. The owner was also very kind and friendly. All three of the pizzas we ordered were great and fast service even though...they were still moping the floors. I ordered the plant based "Autunno" which was amazing.More

Upon feeling like pizza and reading reviews, we thought we would give this place a try. When we arrived, it was PACKED, which is understandable in peak season. We waited about 10 minutes for a table due to the line-up (again, understandable given the time...of the year) and the three of us were eventually squeezed in. We had to order three separate dishes (a salad, a pizza and a calzone) rather than share two pizzas. The salad came quickly, but the pizza and calzone took nearly an hour. Even though they were busy, it's still unacceptable to wait that long for food. This place needs to either only accept bookings or have more pizza ovens. To me, this reeks of greedy ownership. The food was OK, but the price ($150 for everything) and waiting time does not justify any higher than this rating. Being a tourist town, there are plenty of places to eat. Don't just go here because it's a pizza place, it's not worth your time and money.More

They were super busy when we arrived, we waited a short time to get seated as we didn't have a booking and were served within a good time considering how busy they were. We all enjoyed our pizzas and the desert was also nice, would...recommend booking in advance to avoid the wait if you can.More

We waited for a while until we got seated, and ordered very quickly. So far, not a problem, peak hours, we get it. After 20 minutes, a couple got seated next to us and ordered quickly like us. They got their dishes before us and...later ordered the same dish we ordered and got that also before we did. Meanwhile waiters walking by and noticing there's nothing on our table, not saying a word, but checking if everything's okay with the couple next to us, after they received everything they ordered. 10 more minutes go by, and one waitress asked if we want to order a dessert, we said that we're still waiting for our pastas, she went to check and didn't come back. We asked to check what's going on 3 more times, still no answer or an explanation, mind you the restaurant is near closing time, *then* they served us our food without any apology, or offering a compensation. On top of everything, the pasta was mediocre at best. Save your time and money and go some place else.More
