23 Reviews for Heaven Pizza
I have been there a couple of times and the second experience confirmed my initial feelings about the place.
I would put up with the flies, and the waiting, and the poor customer service but the pizza base is stodgy and populated by an anemic amount of bland toppings.
I’m not exactly sure what happened as when they were located on the Kapiti Coast their pizza was exceptional
And therefore, I am shocked to read some of these reviews.
Heaven Pizza has recently made top spot on my favorite pizza places list. Not only are the pizzas amazing, but the atmosphere is great too. Really enjoyable all around.
As for some of these price complaints… if you want cheap pizza go to Domino’s… if you have taken the time to eat out at a nice place then an extra 3 dollars or so is no big deal. And in my opinion 100% worth it.
I had tried two other places on Cuba st but felt very self conscious walking in alone so almost gave up! So glad I didn’t! I walked into a happy relaxed welcoming atmosphere late on Fri eve. The surroundings were beautiful, genuine and special, even down to the beaten copper lightshades. I ordered salmon pizza which is my personal treat for almost 20 years. Whilst waiting I had a jack and coke and was made to feel like one if the family. The feel of the place is relaxed and happy, you could stay in there for hours and not feel awkward!when my pizza was ready I felt a little sad to be leaving but surely I will return here every time I’m in Wellington. tHe salmon pizza is the best I’ve ever had, the base was a delicate, light, and perfect partner for the beautiful toppings.
Well done guys. An awesome atmosphere, place, people and the best food. Even the desert I grabbed from the fridge was amazing.
This is my new top place to eat.
Pizzas= Great range, all different types I’ve tried have been yummy; especially like the salmon pizza and the smoked chicken pizza.
Atmosphere= great music, lovely wood-fire smell, eclectic decor.. the list goes on!!
This last time we also had dessert (baklava and tiramisu). Were both very yummy as well.
The food is always of the highest quality.
Last night, the lady did not notice us immediately, and as we were in no rush we waited until she finished what she was doing. When she noticed us, she was most apologetic and we all managed to have a good laugh about it.
I recommend the haloumi, pepperoni or magherita pizzas…all yum
My friend needed gluten free options so rang & checked they did do gluten free before we went & we checked with the waitress before ordering that it was OK to use the voucher, she advised yes. The owner was friendly and starting chatting to us as soon as we sat down.
We ordered wine & two pizzas, one with a gluten free base. After waiting a while we asked if we could make both pizzas gluten free so we could share flavours, but they had run out of gluten free bases. Pizza was delicious, wine was a really good price. Music and vibes were awesome, after the meal we finished our wine outside by the open fire, the owner joined us for a brief chat and cigarette.
Upon leaving however, we went to pay and presented our voucher at the till, the owner made a joke about it being expired or not able to be used – we all laughed, he took the voucher, rang it all up and charged us. We went halves with eftpos and hadn’t really added up the bill before paying but shortly after walking out we realised that we were charged full price with no discount applied for our voucher… we didn’t want to make an embarrassing scene & go back.
Pizza was nice, but we felt ripped off. Don’t put vouchers in the Entertainment Book if you don’t plan on actually giving the discount to your customers. Will not be going back or recommending Heaven Pizza anymore…
I took my family there for dinner. Today is Wednesday and there were many students so they were busy. that is fine but the staff treated us invisible. No apologies and no attention. The owner was busy making pizza and being apologetic but if he hired one more staff it would have been different.
We sat at the table which still had dishes etc from previous customers. They didnt clean until we asked several times. I asked for water and staff, she pointed the fridge so I collected the jog. There was no glass and she didnt bother to say where I get the glasses. So I asked where the glasses are. The owner seemed bother with the obvious question. He pointed the one side where all the glassesWe waited and ordered 3 small pizzas and waited for 43 mins.
The pizzas are pricy and topping was MEAN. The size was small – just 4 pieces and paid $14.50.
When I went to till to pay for the pizzas. The owner and staff didn’t bother to say “sorry can you wait a bit? No way. Just pretend I wasn’t there. Literally I was standing there for more than 5 mins. The staff (a young girl with blondy and Italian accent) didn’t even look at me. So once again I was invisible. Finally the owner came and tried to organise the payment. I wanted to say something I simply decided I will never go there so what use? I just told him he needs to hire extra staff because staff were so busy so they didn’t see customers as human beings but as tasks so they just tick it. However he said he is sorry and he has big orders blar blar.. Please that is your f*cking business. Just noticing your customer and saying sorry and I will be there shortly doesn’t cost you any…
* Customer service is ZERO
* Price was high except student special which we didnt order
* Still customer service is not existing.
So if you can wait for 40 mins and served $8.00 student Morespecial pizza and don’t bother with customer service go there but if you want to have a decent customer service at good price and generous topping do never go there!!!
Heaven Pizza almost spoiled our family dine out experience.
Everything didn’t arrive too late, but it was more than 30 minutes. When the food did arrive it was mostly cold and there was barely enough room to fit on the table.
Then there were the flies. Lots and lots of flies because of the open doors and windows. Put as off the food for good.
We were really looking forward to a woodfired pizza, but aside from the crispy crust which was delicious,, the rest of the base was soggy and the toppings were bland. (unless the the taste of dried herbs which dominated everything is your cup of tea)
Friendly staff and service, but super disappointing food.
Flavourwise, the crusts are light, thin, and not greasy at all. The flip side is that they tended to be a bit dry, but others in the group tended to see this as a plus. I tend to like thicker crust pizzas, so it depends on your tastes. For me, the food was a 6, but for others it was probably an 8, so I’ve given it a 7 here.
The atmosphere was good. Background music wasn’t too loud to prevent discussion and the place seemed lively.
The presentation was just average though. We were given a stack of plates only after asking for them, and then one was dirty and had to be sent back along with a request for more because we were given 12 plates for 15 people.
In the end, the waitress did a great job of keeping us fed and happy, with the food leaving us talking about it on the way home.
There was one waiter in particular that I hope I get again. He was irish, and one of the most friendly people I have ever met. He was so polite and the service was excellent. We ended up giving him a rather large tip in gratitude.
The pizza’s took a wee while to come out, which was understandable due to the sheer amount that had to be made all at once. When they did arrive I was very pleased. My partner and I shared a “meat” and a “mushroom and mozzarella”.
Also, as a handy hint: Go on Wednesday’s where they do a student night, large pizzas only $8. Which is a HUGE bargain.
Was so pleased with the experience. Will definately dine there again.
