10 Reviews for The Art Of Pizza
Base has a nice texture, such a good change from the doughy bases usually found. Really good flavour combo, and the service was attentative and friendly.
Well set out with nice clean feel to the place.
Prices are fine though those that usually go for a franchise pizza will no doubt think otherwise. Hey, its pizza! tale care of the big stuff first.
Great place for an afterwork gathering or a casual meal out.
Coffee was also very good and good to see micro beers available.
Will be back again for sure.
Half an hour before going our party became a 5 rather the 4 we booked.I called and they sorted a table for us with minimal fuss despite it being a busy Saturday evening.
Yes the wine list is light, but they seem to have the balance of choice good enough for most, and the local ales available are a nice touch.
The food was spot on. Lots of options and a make your own for even the fussiest of eaters. Great taste and great portions, most people took advantage of the takeaway your left overs option which they happily do, as the pizzas are very filling.
Service was lovely, they looked after us very well. Pleasant and very engaged, not badgering us to leave to ease the casual turn up clients at all.
The main course pizza took a little longer than we expected but the place was rammed and when we caught the staffs attention to ask for when it was coming it was less than 5 mins away.
If you’re a couple out for a bite or a family with young kids I’d suggest you try this place, we will be returning very soon. Well done guys.
The waitress that served us, while nice enough, didn’t know the menu. I ordered the salmon and it truly was superb! I have not tasted better and I recommend visiting just to try it. However, my three kids did not enjoy their pizzas. They generally eat anything but this time, were forcing themselves to eat her meals. I tried each of their pizzas and I conceded with them that they were lacking in topping (all I could taste was cheese and sauce, and little else. They were lacking in favour and weren’t well seasoned.
At the end I sent my teenage son up to pay and when he brought back the receipt, we had been overcharged by $70. The waitress was very apologetic when I queried the bill and instantly refunded me the difference.
I would visit again, but perhaps a few months down the track after they’ve worked through some teething problems.
Our review: this is one of the better/best options in Upper Hutt for this sort of dining. Admittedly it lacked warmth, both in terms of decor (I assume they are still decorating the plain walls given the recent opening) and actual temperature, but it’s nonetheless worth a visit.
My chicken & brie pizza was amazing (like carbonara sauce on dough, and somehow that worked!), flavourful and well cooked. Hubby’s steak was beautifully cooked also, though for $29 the steak & salad could have used some pizzazz.
Staff were friendly and very good, though obviously new – our waitress told me she couldn’t recommend a wine as she didn’t drink it herself The wine menu was adequate but a bit limited – I’d love to see some varietals, though for $7.50 a glass I’m not likely to complain too much!. Everyone was very polite and the chef was chatty and said hello – very pleasant.
We will definitely be going back and I do suggest Upper Hutt-ites check it out.
