This Italian pizzeria is situated in the heart of Wellington. The chefs prepare the food with fresh ingredients and use wood fired oven to get that perfect taste. Also on the menu are traditional Italian homemade pastas.
With over 350 eateries, it’s no wonder Wellington lays claim to being New Zealand’s gastronomic capital. The city’s coastal location means fresh seafood is a highlight on many menus, with local delicacies including crayfish, salmon and paua – a New Zealand shellfish. Sushi restaurants are also common. Wellington restaurants source many of their ingredients from the nearby Wairarapa region – look out for the region’s award winning Pinot Noir wines, gourmet ice cream and Aorangi and Gouda cheeses.
