Stefano’s Delivers and offers Takeaways with discounts offered to members ( join up its free with lots of other goodies)
We are renowned for our European styled thin-based pizzas for which we have created an exciting and flavourful range of toppings (see our pizza menu). Our three main categories – ham or salami, seafood or vegetarian – can be customised to your particular taste, as we know that not all palates enjoy hot salami or anchovies! We also have a selection of pastas, entrees, antipastos, salads and breads to choose from. To complement our extensive range of traditional Italian pizza and pastas, we also create special dishes to take advantage of seasonal, fresh and local Waiheke-grown produce.
