Description: Pipi is all about you the customer we don’t mind if you come in your muddy gumboots or your Gucci stilettos, or if you drink Bollinger with your pizza or house red. We are very lucky in Hawkes Bay to be surrounded by wonderful produce and wine and our menu very much reflects this, where possible everything is local and organic. We don’t take ourselves too seriously but we do take what we do very seriously. Using the best freshest ingredients and cooking them to best bring out their natural flavours. Pipi was born out of my love of my children and food and now 15 years later this has not changed at all and is still at the heart of everything we do.

We had a delightful meal here, the food and service was great. We arrived reasonably late for a Wednesday night and were the last customers to leave, but no pressure was put on us to hurry. The food was great, I had calamari which was perfectly cooked and delicious. Everyone else’s meals looked equally as delicious, we’ll have to return and try some other options. Pipi is very popular with the locals in Havelock North and it’s easy to see why.

Had to wait more than 30 minutes just to get served and then another hour for the meal. The only good thing was the pizza.

We were a family grow of seven.
Pipi's serve superb pizza with a wide selection of flavours.
It was a busy evening but our wait was enjoyable with a glass of wine to pass the time.
We enjoyed five large pizza that was more than enough for our family of seven.
Definitely recommend Pipi as a fun place to eat with great food.

We dined early-ish after travelling to Havelock North, and Pipi’s was ideal.

Everything was relaxed and friendly. My penne pasta with bacon was rich, hearty, generous and simply delicious. My friend's seafood met with equal pleasure and satisfaction.
The staff were equally relaxed, despite the restaurant filling up quickly and the food was delivered promptly. A good happy place without pretensions.
