Cuisine: Cocktail Bar, Italian, Pizza
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $30

Bringing out the fun side in everything they do, UMU Pizza serves delicious slices and good times.

As you can probably imagine, this place is all about relaxed, informal vibes. Hop on one of their quirky bar stools in their cosy dining area and let the good times roll! The centrepiece is, of course, their pizza oven which is on full display. It's beautifully ornate and you can watch the chef prep your cheesy feast.

There are nine pizzas on offer that change according to seasonal ingredients. To give you a taste, there's currently a zingy feta option, caramelised zucchini and mint number, as well as a smoky Sicilian sausage, fennel and red onion. Alternatively, keep it classic with pancetta, portobello mushrooms and pecorino.

Liquid fun comes in the form of playful cocktails, beers on tap and wine in abundance!

Gorgeous wee pizza restaurant in Kingsland with simple but inspired pizza combos (loved the number 6 with nduja a spicy style of sausage and broccolini).

Great wine, fantastic service and delicious pizza - Six was our favourite!

The food was fantastic, the drinks were strong and the playlist was great. I would suggest a more varied selection of seating options (people with back problems like myself might struggle with the stools) but really enjoyed the vibe with the neon signs and hot pink decor. Staff were so friendly and it was cool to see the pizza oven so prominently displayed.

From the umu to my puku!

Love how the beautiful wood-fired oven is the feature of this space, right out in the open so you get all the smells as soon as you walk in.

Pizza was amazing, exactly what you want when you think wood fired pizza. I like the simple menu, they only do pizza and they do it well.

Only suggestion is to include a spice warning on some pizzas if needed.

We loved sitting near the pizza oven and watching our pizzas being hand made right next to our table. They were a work of art and were the tastiest pizzas we've had in the city. The perfect place to celebrate 12 weeks post heart surgery. We will visit Umu Pizza again.

So delicious! Felt like I was back in new York ❤️

Best woodfired pizza in Auckland and thats a strong statement as I have tried many. Great service - lovely attentive staff but not pushy or hovering. Pizza - 10/10. We tried 3 and ended up taking the 3rd one home as they are so filling. We tried 6, 8 and 9. All absolutely delicious with the nicest woodfired crust. The atmosphere is cosy with tables close together with cute decor. Really enjoyed our night here. Pizza and wine is a hard combo to beat. Will be coming back with some friends. thanks alot!

The pizzas are so good! A good variety to choose from and lots of flavor. The staff are awesome too, we lost track of time and didn't realise they were closing lol, but the staff were amazing, they didn't rush us out or make us feel uncomfortable. Will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone. Thanks Umu Pizza

FINALLY there is a great pizza place in a Auckland!!! Service is a little slow because there is only one oven, but the atmosphere and drinks make up for it, and when the pizza comes it’s soooo worth it.

- dined at Umu Pizza on

Wonderful First Table at Umu in Kingsland. The food was delicious, the house sauce - delectable. 10/10 would recommend, and would try again. With the 80s playlist resonating through the restaurant and bar, every song's a banger and there was quite a bit of singing along from all tables, the staff were super lovely and welcoming. Can't wait to go back!

UMU pizza was delicious - the sourdough crust was nice and stretchy and doughy, and the pizza oven crisped things up nicely. Recommend the spicy nduja sausage. We will be back!

Great pizza and an amazing drinks menu to match. Wasn’t the first time I’ve been to Umu, visit everyone I’m in town as the pizza is great and it’s such a relaxed and fun setting. The number Seven is a personal fav. What’s more, given the fact they are on first table I can now go out to dinner with my mortgage burdened and tiny human bearing friends again! Cheers!

Amazing experience. The pizza is incredible, service, great, loved it and can’t wait to go back

If I could rate our experience a 6/5 I would!
The service was amazing and very personal, the staff were kind and made sure we were well looked after. They catered to dietary requirements without any issue and asked for feedback on a new product. I will definitely be back.

if you like good pizza you will love this place.

The pizza was good but not amazing, out of this world experience. Just like a nice homemade pizza. The cocktails are beautiful. It's a nice atmosphere. Really nice having everything out in the open for the guests to see (pizza oven is in the middle of the venue and the bar is amongst the tables). Parking is extremely hard so best bet is to take the train

Excellent pizzas, I ordered number 6,7,8. I like number 6 which the yummy spicy pizza. Great food but crowded and a little loud.

Good grub alright yeah. Nice atmosphere, kind of like you're in an episode of Easy. Staff were all pleasant individuals. Keep up the good work. In the words of Arnold Schwarzeneggar's character from The Terminator - "I will come back again in the near future."

Atmosphere and customer service were good. The texture of the dough is great, and flavour is good. It's a good pizza.

- dined at Umu Pizza on

Loved Umu. Pizzas are just delicious. Sourdough bread base is perfect and the simple toppings are perfectly matched. We asked for extra rocket on one of ours - made it even more delicious. Actually if I had a recommendation, it would be for mor green on top, but they’re pretty good anyway. Service so friendly too and pizzas don’t take too long to arrive. Only thing I would like in this place is some low tables as my feet get sore dangling from the barstools!! We’ll be back for sure.

Great time had by all. Delicious pizza with interesting flavours. Lovely wine and a great time had by adult and kids

- dined at Umu Pizza on

As soon as we walked in the door we felt welcomed. It was relaxing, friendly, no fuss. But quick and attentive service all the same. And this is THE best pizza I have ever had. Sort of low key, not too fussy , but intense flavours on the most delicious bases. Highly recommended . We will return. And they do a 3 pizza for the price of 2 on deal on Tuesdays which i’m definitely going to take up some time.

We had a really great dinner at Umu, everyone was very friendly and the pizza was incredible. We were tempted to order another on our way out just to have leftovers for breakfast.. We will definitely stop by again.
