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.

Although we have been well aware of Blitza for many years, it is only recently that it has become our go to local restaurant. Birkenhead is very well served with eating out options but we love Blitza. There are eateries where you may have a...favourite dish and just stick to it, but the choice of dishes, both starters and mains makes choosing a dish on each visit tricky. However, you are best to go with a very healthy appetite! A shared pizza bread is a great favourite, but the scallops entree just fantastic. A very generous portion in a delicious creamy sauce, with rice and well dressed side salad entree size, would be a main for those with a smaller appetite! When it comes to the mains, all the pasta dishes are a very generous portion and unlike some places, plenty of sauce. I haven't yet tried a steak but the chicken galliano is a favourite with both myself and my wife. It comes with beautifully cooked vegetables and roast potatoes with a creamy sauce - and plenty of it. But my new favourite is Saganaki. Seafood in a rich creamy sauce on a bed of rice. I'm not keen on mussels, so I have it without, but several scallops, several prawns and a generous amount of snapper is a delight. Not cheap, but well worth it. The staff are always friendly and efficient. Our gluten free friend also enjoys the options.More

My rib eye steak was one of the best I have had. Tender and done to perfection. Was a bit surprised at the creamy mushroom sauce not cooked like it normally is. They are a bit quirky in that way - throw in things that...aren't usual. My sister's ham and pineapple pizza was delicious too. Staff are friendly and service is great.More

With a menu that has something for everyone and my absolute favourite pizzas, this is an easy choice for a family dinner or special night out. Excellent service, with friendly staff.

Hubby and I absolutely LOVE Blitza! We are locals and have been coming for years. And over those years the food has consistently been outstanding along with the service! They make the best martinis! Better than any bar in Auckland! I highly recommend the steak...as well as the snapper. My husband loved the Blitza Special pizza (I do too!) and the garlic cheesy bread is the best anywhere hands down! Lee and his team are friendly with that great mixture of fun and professional. If you find yourself in Highbury/Birkenhead don't miss out on Blitza! Just don't take my favourite table. ha!More

Three of our family were celebrating their birthdays and chose Blitza Pizza as the venue. From the warm greeting at the entrance right through the evening this turned out to be the perfect choice. They offer a menu to suit all dietary variations presented so...appetisingly. No request was any problem including the unexpected addition to the party. We were cared for by a superb attendant who entered the party mood and appeared to enjoy our celebration as much as we did. She was the perfect hostess with a faultless memory. We were her special guests. Bravo and grazieMore

Fantastic meal and amazing service by Cathy. She was attentive and aware of pace of our table. She anticipated our needs and was a great source of information about the menu and portion sizes. Knowledgeable on what wine would suit too. We went back hoping...to be served by her but really sad to hear she no longer is there. She was a huge asset and it wont be the same without her. I hope all the Blitza staff were trained by her expertise.More

This restaurant has been owned by the same family for many years and has always been worth a visit. The food is delicious and well presented, the staff are friendly, attentive and professional. The only problem I have is choosing what to eat.
