“Authentic new pizza ”

Sal's Authentic New York Pizza - Lichfield Street
Ranked #23 of 183 Quick Bites in Christchurch
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 August 2016 via mobile

Great pizza and good atmosphere.

I have eaten a few pizzas in New York and this pizza took me straight back there. Spicy pepperoni and meatball was awesome and the mozzarella sticks were very moorish.

It is not cheap but always nice to be able to sit down and eat a fresh hot pizza. I think it would be nice to have proper plates and real metal cutlery rather than paper plates and plastic knife that struggled to cut but then it gives you a good excuse to fold the huge slice in half as the do in NY and eat with your hands.

I went with 3 friends for lunch. The decor is great, the restaurant warm and the staff friendly. We went for the pizza which are very large and one fed the 4 of us for lunch. The pizza unfortunately was not great. Most of all it was dripping in fat. Literally I held a slice and allowed a pool of fat to collect as it dripped on to the plate. I like crusty or thin based. This one had a base which was soft and had no rigidly - it basically just flopped over when lifted - which made it very difficult to eat without making a mess. We were given no serviettes, and no cutlery. Taste wise it was bland and even the pepperoni had no bite, Drinks limited to soft drinks and water. No juice or hot drinks.

We ordered on the phone and it was a 25 minute wait for one pizza at 9pm on a Friday – they must have been busy. We shared one pizza between four of us but could have done two between four, making it a rather expensive way to eat pizza – prices range from $25-$35 but anything decent is over $30. The pizzas are big, I agree. We had half chicken and half meatball, and all of us agreed the chicken was better – it was crumbed and deep fried before it was put on the pizza I think, which might have been why..?! Nice to try for a bit of novelty but if you’re after finesse or something crafted with a bit more nuance, I don’t think a NY style pizza is where you want to go. Rather rude waitress as well, but maybe it had just been a long night.
