I would not never normally give a four out of five on a whim, but the Moroccan lamb on the pie was very very unexpectedly good. The pizza with olives was also very good. The margarita pizza however, was not good at all. The sauce was almost out of a can. The bread was almost right, but not there.

The homemade pasta chicken pesto Alfredo special was phenomenal.

Super busy place, but pizza came pretty quickly.
It's situated in a place with many other restaurants, and you have to find a spare table, no bookings
Pizza was great, super tasty
Highly recommended

We were looking for a place serving delicious Italian food in a nice atmosphere, and going here on a cold winter evening was in this context clearly a mistake.

Pasta was ok (a bit salty, tough), but the cheese they used to drown the pasta was clearly not parmesan but probably the Tasty from the supermarket shelf. A good eatery would serve the cheese seperate so that customers can decide how much they like.

Pizza (Sir George) base actually is good and the toppings are not bad if you are after American (vs Italian) pizza. Drown everything in sauce, as Americans like to.

Beer was good (if you like Pilsner).

Atmosphere of the "little High Eatery" (basically a food court) is - well, lets say "rustical" ... and there might be some at face value nice looking corners to sit. However - it was winter, and the "little eatery" is a large place with plenty of openings where people constantly come in from the cold and go out - it was anything else but cosy. Felt a bit like a big train station on a lousy winter day. A constant cold draft is a good motivator to eat fast and go home.

Chairs don't motivate either to stay long .... they do have some resemblence to torture instruments. Wife still feels her back.

Maybe a trendy place for students with too much money to spend ... but we are unlikely to come back.

Having lived next door to Pepe's in New Haven, Connecticut, I feel qualified to commend BASE for their leopard-spotted, wonderfully chewy crust & toppings. This is a great place for an unfussy but superb pizza & glass of wine when you're taking a break from Christchurch's many upscale restaurants.
