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 had group of 4 and we ordered one large and one medium pizza and should have gotten 2 large. One was the fiesole and it was delicious!!! Thin crust! They were very busy with take out orders and all the inside tables were full....We got there right when they opened at 5:30 to get a table. The service was good.More

Delicious after a day of hiking. Had Hawaiian pizza and the salad. Salad was good but needed a bit more dressing- and I don’t like much dressing on my salads. No pasta served right now. Place is super popular. All tables were full and people...coming in for take out. (6 on a Thursday).More

We had many enjoyed meals as a family when La Toscana opened here some 20 years ago, so were looking forward to our pizza's when returning on holiday. What a disappointment, what we got was insipid, bland and boring stodge. Very sad, can only hope...they read this and return to the quality they had when they started outMore

Sadly after almost a year of ordering delivery, still no pasta being served. We had pasta delivery previously and it was by far our favourite. The pizza is great too but our second choice, now the only choice. BRING BACK THE PASTA PLEEEASE !

Most impressed. We were in town on a bank holiday. Most other local eateries were either closed or imposing a surcharge but not Toscana. They were very busy but we found quality, service and value all excellent. Good wine, fine coice of beers and good...put too. The front of hpuse staff - three young women - were very organised at getting customers sorted and resisting undue pressure from something jump the queue. To our surprise, this straightforward local restaurant provided one of the best experiences during our three weeks in NZ.More

What a disappointment. The pizzas are very small and expensive. You should be aware that these are not Italian pizzas as they are basically a cracker wafer crust not an Italian thin crust, which can be good, just letting you know it’s not a real...Italian fresh crust. If you order any additional toppings, don’t expect them, and the servers don’t care. We had to go to the counter to ask about the extra toppings and they brought a side dish, but were so clueless they didn’t charge us. The service is lackluster, after receiving your pizza you’ll never see them again. Other than the crust, the pizza isn’t that bad. Management seems to be lacking as they couldn’t even manage to get beer delivery from the local Te Anau brewery. We talked to several people on a tour the next day who all raved about the pizza (and pasta) across the street.More

Went for an early dinner. The restaurant was extremely busy, but service was quite quick, with only a short wait for the food to arrive. The pizza & salad were excellent, and the house wine was very quaffable. And very friendly staff - and reasonable...prices made for a very good experience.More

I cant recommend La Toscana enough if you are looking for a place in Te Anau to feel comfortable with food allergies. With a child that has allergies the staff are always considerate, willing to help and go the extra bit. Thank you La Tos...for always going out of your way and making us feel 100% confident in eating your amazing pizza!More

The staff were friendly, the food delicious, and their $60 early bird meal for two people is worth it. I would go back, and I did!

We ate here when we stopped in Te Anau. The food was excellent (particularly the garlic bread!) It was very busy and the waitresses were always on the go but still managed to accommodate anyone who came in. We had the set menu which was...very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to eat out in Te Anau!More

A very busy and popular italian restaurant - many people had to wait or go in vain. We were lucky and had first a fine salad (with apricots - very tasty) and then 2 super pizzas. Tap water and 2 very good glasses of Rosé...wine - a good and fine dinner.More

Visited on a very busy evening when most of the restaurants in Te Anau were closed. I’m not sure why but these closures meant the remaining restaurants had too many customers. We had to leave a name and they called us within 20 minutes. We...were surprised given how busy they were. The restaurant itself is a little tired and could do with a renovation and it was staffed by several very young girls who looked hassled but were all remarkably helpful and friendly. The pizza was freshly cooked, they couldn’t offer pasta presumably it was too much pressure, and it was tasty, if a little swamped by BBQ sauce. We ordered Americano and a Carnivoro and they both tasted the same due to the over zealous use of the sauce. However we did enjoy our meals and we left full and with a smile. The Fjordland Lagan and the side salad were excellent.More

Takeaway only on NYE but accommodated our short time frame to have pick up in time for our glow worm tour which was appreciated. Pizzas were delicious and generous with toppings. Would gladly go again next time we come.
