We had a lovely Sunday lunch at Formaggio’s for my partners birthday. The food was fantastic, with great portion sizes, and the staff were wonderful. They were attentive and friendly, and helpful with a wine recommendation. We are eager to come again.

Our family had such a wonderful night out- the staff at Formaggios were just so friendly too. Loved the seafood chowder and the chips! And everyone else seemed to enjpy their meal too. Thank you, would definitely recommend this to other families

Great food, great service. Made the mistake of ordering a starter which was so big I couldn't finish the main let alone order a dessert. Next time will be main and dessert as the dessert menu looked interesting.

I was really excited to try this restaurant. We came here for an anniversary dinner and it completely surpassed my expectations. The food was to die for; We started with the pizza bread and the. I had the fettuccine carbonara and my partner had the calzone. Great portions and delicious. The atmosphere was lovely. We will definitely be back, it topped our regular Italian place by far. So sad that we filled up and couldn’t fit in dessert, but it’s just another reason to come back !!

Was hesitant as we usually go for the italian under the Isaac theatre
But were both pleasantly surprised
The kids loved the risotto (fungi) and the standard Ham n Pineapple
We got the beef cheek Ravioli and a 1/2 n half pizza
Gotta admit the wife's vegetarian was way better than my choice with flesh on it.
Had 2 Pannies with tea.
Delighted and will return.

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.

Our mains at Formaggio's were delicious, the food came out quickly, and the service was great. We ordered the cheesecake for dessert, which was lovely, apart from the chocolate layer on top which was strangely rubbery and didn't have much flavour. It was a warm and welcoming environment and I'd highly recommend going. Just maybe don't get the cheesecake.

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.

First time here. Table of 3 celebrating my sisters birthday.
Excellent service, we asked to move tables - not a problem also very thoughtful, the waiter and waitress put a candle on my sisters dessert and sung Happy Birthday.
Great food, full of flavour.
Will definitely return

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.
