Just wanted to say a big thanks for your efforts on Saturday for us. The Pizzas were a hit! So much so I didnt even get a bite! So I personally still a Stefanos Pizza virgin, which means we will need to come back for more in future! A big thanks to your efforts and patience with the communications!

We had a week holiday in Waiheke and ate out at the different restaurant every night. Stefanos is the best one by far!!! The service, the food are excellent and the price is reasonable. If we lived near by, we would go there every week! Thank you so much for the wonderful and pleasant experience. We’ll be back! Highly recommend.

Just wanted to say thanks for all your help with the kids, menu suggestions etc. that ensured the night went smoothly.The tirimasu birthday cake was delicious. Everyone had a fantastic time.
~ Rachel

An amazing place, the atmosphere is laid back, the staff are very friendly and the service is great. The pizzas are the BEST IN THE WORLD. We enjoyed the food so much we had takeaways the following day. The old saying “Once is never enough” is very true in this instance!

For a friends Birthday we arranged a BYO at Stefanos, as visitors to the island, none of us had been here. We were amazed to say the least! The effort the staff had gone to, to set up a beautiful marquee in the outside courtyard was exceptional and the service was alike throughout the evening.

The food was absolutely delicious and very well priced with a range that catered to the vegetarians and gluten free among the group. We had a group of 22 people and everyone commented about the range of the menu, the best pizzas and pastas they have ever had and were most impressed by the service. The staff here are truly here to serve and ensure you have a great night out. We will certainly return here and recommend to friends.

Stefanos is a great family restaurant. Wonderful positive staff made a great atmosphere. Colouring in and chalk board drawing kept the kids happy and the affordable and delicious meal made me even happier. The most amazing pizza I have ever had. I would Highly recommend dining here!!!
~ Georgie

The best pizza in NZ! I’m a regular and always have great customer service with a smile. Steve the owner is awesome and a great entertainer, ask him to sing the dessert menu to you in an italian accent (you will be in stitches!). Lovely outdoor courtyard during summertime, cosy restaurant when its nippy. great place! you have to try!!
~ Jay G

We went here for lunch recently and were so sorry we hadn’t also gone there for dinner the night before. We had divine garlic bread and a really delicious pizza. The pizza choices were really interesting (with heaps of vegetarian choices), and the pastas sounded very inviting. The service was excellent and friendly – I can’t wait to go back!
~ Hilary

These guys are great. Just had a bit of a menu upgrade which is excellent. Great salad and pizza, super friendly owners. Nice people. Good service. Great value. We go probably once every 2 weeks on average, and I’ve visited a LOT of restaurants in my time so it’s not just a case of not having seen other options.
~ Peter C
