The decor isn’t much but the pizza was excellent, crispy base, fresh ingredients. We had the ruffino’s pizza with tomato sauce, cheese, onion, ham, bacon, garlic and capsicum which was the best! Very good value. Restaurant not on the ground floor but upstairs but look out for the signs. In the main part of Paihia near all the shops.

We were looking for a quick dinner near our motel and this place got decent comments. They apparently do mostly takeaway business as we were the only people dining in. We ordered a jumbo pepperoni pizza but only got a medium (that's all we were charged for, however). The crust reminded me of the Pizza Hut thin & crispy pizza - my wife's favorite but not mine. The pizza was fine but nothing special. If you're not looking for a gourmet meal, you will probably find this acceptable. Photos are attached.

Thanks for reading. If you’ve found this helpful I’ll appreciate a thumbs up below.

We have dined there twice, both times walking away satisfied. My wife had Lasagna and I had carbonara first time and vegetable fettuccine the second time.
Prompt and polite service.

An unusual setting (upstairs and down a corridor or two), but the rewards are some of the best pizza you've ever tasted. We had a vegetable (my partner said it was the best she'd ever had) and I chomped on a seafood, which was good but, having said that, the anchovies were extremely salty and the prawns certainly weren't fresh from the bay but, I can't recall a pizza anywhere that had decent prawns.
The restaurant's decor could best be described as basic with not a lot of atmosphere but don't let that detract from your eating experience.

This is a small place, with very basic decor, which offers both take away and eat in options. They serve good food for a fair price. I would recommend.
