My favourite restaurant in Christchurch. The food is absolutely delicious every time, the ambience is great and the staff are SO nice. You can tell that this restaurant really cares about the quality of the food and experience they provide. Vegan menu is amazing with lots of divine options. Beautiful!

The meal was absolutely beautiful, the ambience was lovely, but mostly the staff were what made our night so pleasant. Hana and Marcus were just wonderful and so attentive.

Not being a food critic myself, and neither herself and themselves with me either, we were open minded, but we all agreed that it was the best Italian food we had eaten since Italy.

It was all seasoned properly, delicious and presented in good time by the excellent, friendly front of house team. Formaggios doesn't aim to be a Michelin star restaurant, just to serve great food in pleasant surroundings at which it excels. The size of the pizza even stumped the young one, which is saying something!

Excellent evening out and no sour grapes from these happy diners!

One of the best Italian restaurants in Christchurch. I had from here the risotto ai funghi, della casa salad, spaghetti bolognese and the yummy ortolana and salmone pizza. I also had a really yummy tiramisu. I saw that formaggio has lots of vegetarian, vegan and GF options for who needs it. Lovely atmosphere, great service and food!
