Magnifico! Was the pizza we got but it really describes our experience at Formaggios. The pizza and pasta is just yum and the desserts are brilliant - best Tiramisu in town isn't an understatement. Coffee was some of the best I've had. Big compliments to the staff. They are magnificent at giving you a wonderful dining experience. We will definitely be back...if we can get a table

We'd never been to Formaggios before but we loved it and I'm sure we will be back. The food was delicious - the arancini and tiramisu were real highlights for me. The timing in between courses was excellent and the portion sizes were food. Our waitress was friendly and great at knowing when to come over without intruding on our meal.

Being real foodies we were looking forward to trying Formaggios, as we’ve not been before. Everything was superb, the service, food and atmosphere! Some of the best Italian we’ve had anywhere! Polenta fries with truffle mayo was a hit! Will definitely be back!

Formaggio has become our favourite Italian restaurant in Christchurch. Their food, staff, atmosphere and cleanliness are all great. We tried several different pastas, pizza and deserts. They are all very delicious and made us full and happy.
Though my husband has carbonara at every opportunity, I don't normally like it, but Formaggio's carbonara is the best one I have ever had. I will recommend Formaggio to my friends.

Beautiful meals and great service on a grey day. Being cooler we felt like hot food and our dishes were lovely - seafood chowder very warming and desserts were pronounced delicious. We will be back. Thank you Formaggios.

We really enjoyed our time at Formaggio’s, the staff were friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived and there was a nice relaxed vibe in the restaurant. I ordered the fettuccine carbonara which was creamy and full of flavour without being sickly or too rich. My husband shared a pizza and chips with our young daughter and both thoroughly enjoyed their meal too. For dessert we shared the lemon tart which was delicious, the lemon flavour was perfectly paired with the smooth silky meringue. We would definitely come back!

We had another wonderful dining experience at Formaggio's last night. The service is always sincere, very friendly and all your needs are catered for. We shared a large Magnifico pizza which was delicious; Napoli sauce, ham, mushrooms, capsicum, black olives & mozzarella. It was cooked to perfection. We also had some beer battered fries which we didn't need but couldn't stop eating them. They were so good! This small, intimate restaurant has a genuine Italian ambience, is unpretentious and delivers quality and great value for money every time. We will be back.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Formaggio's Italian restaurant last night. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We shared a large Magnifico pizza and had a portion of perfectly cooked and delectable fries. I don't usually order fries but these were amazing and I couldn't stop eating them. A lovely young man even brought us a serving of duck fat potato wedges to sample.
The pizza was generous in size and its filling of Napoli sauce, tomato, salami, ham, mushroom, capsicum, black olives and mozzarella was plentiful and a wonderful combination. Thank you.

We enjoyed our dinning experience at Formaggio's on Thursday night. It had a great atmosphere and we received a friendly warm welcome. The service was lovely but felt a little pressure to decide what we wanted to eat from the staff and also to have two waiting staff at the table waiting for our order was a little too much. Our meals came out quickly and hot and although my gnocchi was rather salty the other meals were delicious.

Overall, this was a nice place to go for dinner although a little rushed.

Our first time at Formaggio's but will definitely go back. Although it was quiet at lunch time, there was still a nice atmosphere, the food was great and our waiter was very attentive and charming.

Formaggio's pizza toppings are generous however the dough of the pizza is not well floated for a bread nor is it a thin crust pizza. So they need to do something about the dough. I had 2 pizzas and honestly it is not matching to the taste of Italian genuine flavor if the dough is like that. But, the chowder soup and gnnochi which we had was well presented. The chowder soup was fully well portioned with seafood and vegetables all giving a full flavor which was enjoyable. The service of the place was good and welcoming. However, as I said, if the pizza dough is like that, than the resturant needs to upgrade far better than that.

We liked the Italian Vibe and decor and our server was very good! He was friendly and efficient.
My husband had the blue cod and was rather envious of my choice of chowder which was extremely tasty with little ribbons of hot smoked salmon on the top. He’s keen to come back and try it for himself, maybe for an evening meal this time?

It's great to go to a restaurant where the little things like explaining the dishes, asking for a drink to start with, checking on your meals and seeing if you would like another drink are all done with ease. Some places miss some or all of these simply tasks. The food and service was very good.
