Description: Spagalimis Pizzeria is the oldest restaurant in Christchurch.Spagalimis was first opened in may 1978 at the corner of Colombo and Kilmore Streets, Christchurch. Initially the restaurant had eight tables, seating approximately 44 persons, with only seven employees, and takeaways available.Due to the very consistent and quality product, demand increased until at peak periods we were unable to satisfy demand. So in may 1991, after an exhaustive search for the correct site, we opened at 155 Victoria Street, Christchurch. This restaurant seats over 130 people and offers dine in, pick up and delivery services.

Have been visiting Spags for many years and nothing has changed. Come in often for takeaways and the occasional sit down meal. Service is wonderful - waitresses are very helpful and attentive. Pizzas are a good price for a high quality pizza - generous toppings and sauce and the spags chips are a reason to come in on their own! Nice and warm and love the rustic family dining atmosphere. Keep it up guys at Church Corner!

Thank you for your review. Much appreciated. Spags has serving pizzas since 1978 in Christchurch. That is a long time for a restaurant. The famous Spags chips are a big draw card. Ciao.

Christchurch's old favourite is still up there - lovely bases and generous toppings at a good price.

Shared a large pizza and yummy Spags chips last Sunday night. Have never been disappointed with the food here and the service was great. Very helpful, smiling waitress who went the extra mile - and the food came quickly. Was a regular visitor at Victoria St restaurant and it will be good to see this open again.

We went in for a quick dinner on our way home. We enjoyed what we had, not the best pizza we have had but deffinatly not the worst. Staff seemed a little disintrested in us and we only saw them when they took our order and when the food was dropped off. We would of ordered more drinks but waitress never came back.

Hi Sonya,

Thank you for your review.

This is not how good customers such as yourself should be treated and for this we are very sorry. We will be following up with the staff involved and will work with them to make sure this doesn't happen again.

Many thanks

Card board pizza, not much more to say. Although it was only a take away pizza we had higher expectations.
