Reviewed 4 April 2021 via mobile

Always popular, with good reason. It pays to book ahead. It was completely full the mid-week evening we visited. The menu is pretty much pizza and pasta. The beef cheek gnocchi won't be bettered! Attentive staff. We waited a bit for our meals but we had arrived right in the middle of the rush and we could see how busy they were. Prices about the same as everywhere else in town. The buzzy vibe appeals. Definitely recommended.

During our long weekend in Christchurch we passed by twice this placed and it was always packed with people so thought to try it out.
We enjoyed the Pizza Ortolana and wouldn't mind to try some of the others on our next trip.
