Decor was a bit outdated and the place was dark but you can't complain when the pizza outs as good as it is. Nice flavours that you can see and two for the price of one! Quick too. Will be back

I always go there when I go to christchurch. Their lunch deal is very affordable and their pizza quality are nice as well. I especially like volcano pizza. Always good for family visit and for group meeting as well. Staffs are usually friendly.

Hi rach690, Thanks for your review. We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience. The single candle in the Chianti wicker basket bottle on each table has been a huge hit with hundreds of our customers. People really enjoy this. On purpose our restaurant is dimly lit. This is not poor lighting but rather selective lighting to create a... More

I've been gluten-free for a decade or so and have tried a few different brands of pizza over that period. Spags is still make my pizza of choice. My favourites are Thai Chicken, Apricot Chicken, and Ground Beef. The photo is of Ground Beef with a drizzle of sweet chili sauce on top. It's not strictly on the menu but... More

Staff were lovely. Large pizza was the biggest I have seen. Lots to choose from. Nice thin bases. Restaurant was very dark and cold as we walked through.

A familiar haunt for good pizza. Reliably good pizza with a wide variety. Can be cold and rather dark at night, but the food certainly makes up for that.

Hi Kathleen S, Thank you for your review. We have sorted some issues that we were having with our heating system which has solved the problem with some cold areas of the restaurant. We agree that there is nothing worse than a cold restaurant. Our dimly lit dining area is a feature that creates a cosy space and we are... More

We decided to visit the other end of Riccarton road from the previous night. We then discovered Spagalimis. Outside the place looks a bit bland. Once inside I was amazed. The cosy interior felt warm and welcoming. The dimly lit space made for a very relaxing and enjoyable night out. In fact it was a trip down memory lane. I... More

We were due to see a movie at Westfield later in the afternoon so popped in here for some lunch seeing as it was nearby. It was our first visit here and initial impressions were that the restaurant was quite dark and definitely not warm enough. We were shown to our table by a very friendly staff member who brought...

Hi Mooseandbok2006, Thanks for coming in on Sunday and great that you got to use your entertainment voucher. Sure makes for a great value dining experience. The open hatch is our pass through area where all dirty dishes from the tables are put. These go onto the sterile stainless steel area where the staff discard the food scraps and then... More

I had the Caesar salad and this was really one of the best I've ever had. My husband had lasagne which was flavoursome with lots of cheese and a good portion. Friendly waiter and prompt service. This restaurant is a good alternative to the eateries in the mall as it is located just outside Westfield Mall.
