Stefanos serves pizza and is licenced. Wide variety of pizzas, all good. Ours was a mafiosa with just sufficient chili to make it interesting. Very enjoyable.

My partner is an ex New Yorker and has been looking for a good pizza in NZ. Said this was the closest he has come. Place was very busy so don't expect to get your takeaway quickly. But well worth the wait.

I have been to Stephanos a number of times for a Pizza. In general the food is OK and the service disorganised. My most recent visit was disappointing. We decided to order the counter pizzas, one of each on offer today. Ready cooked on the counter. Order by the slice. When a cooked pizza is reheated, it should not really be put back in a 400c plus pizza oven. It is just to hot. If you do this you need to stay with the pizza and whip it out after 30 seconds or so or you will have carbon. The best way I have seen is to put the pizza face down on a hot plate for a minute or so and them return to the plate face up having just revitalised the toppings and gently warmed the base.
Sadly, our slices arrived as burnt offerings. The base was all but impossible to cut with a serrated knife. The toppings with large patches of black carbon. I know what a crispy wood fired should look like. A judicious amount of light charring is just fine. It adds to the experience. This was nothing like that! Also, no seasoning. Salt or pepper cooked with the pizza. There was some on a shelf in the public area though. A light sprinkle of olive oil would also have helped the reheating process massively.

This is my partner's favourite pizza place and it used to be mine too. We only ever come here as treat and it was always consistently awesome but I didn't quite enjoy our last visit. The ham seemed of lesser quality than usual and that was one of 2 of the main ingredients it consisted of. Will definitely come back, you can't get pizza like this anywhere else!

We went here after arriving in town and decided to grab the pizzas take away as the place was very, very, very noisy. The staff goofed around amongst themselves before, during and after our order, throwing stuff at each other and what not. You might not enjoy this place if you don’t like that kind of goofing while trying to get dinner. Pizzaz were okay, lots of tomato sauce and tasted a little bland. However, it was what we were looking for: a quick and generous dinner close to our hotel.
