Formaggio's was our maiden experience on first table. We went through the whole menu from starters all the way through dessert and the quality was impeccable - both from the service and food. The serving team were attentive to us and even helped with recommendations. The pizza was out of this world. Would gladly come back now I know this place exists. Ten out of ten.

we have often driven past Formaggios thinking it was dark and dated. We were amazed how lovely it was inside. The menu has something for everyone and has a wonderful wine list to compliment. The service was great we will be back. I think this may become a favourite for us as the menu has such appetizing choice. I had a seafood fettuccine which was plentiful and delicious, hubby ordered the monkfish wrapped in prosciutto and that was so good too. Thank you formaggio hope to be back soon.
ps I love your tiramisu

The staff were amazingly welcoming and service was great throughout our visit. The meals are great and as one of us was vegan it was great to see a whole separate menu for vegans. I chose the vegan pizza and it was terrific. The pear salad was fresh and beautifully presented.
We will be back. We are lucky to have a restaurant of this quality in our own neighbourhood.

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.

Service was excellent. Servers are very experienced and friendly. All meal courses were served at the most appropriate time. I ordered braised beef ravioli and Formaggio's cheescake which both surpassed my expectations.

"That cheesecake was the most delicious dessert I have tasted so far in all the restaurants I have been to."

We will, 100%, come back to this restaurant to enjoy a lovely meal.

Very pleasant experience at Formaggios. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Great selection of options on the menu. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Recommend upgrading to a Large pizza as then you can choose two different toppings and have some leftover to take home for lunch the next day!

Service staff were lovely!! But the food came out quite slow considering how quiet the restaurant. We also loved the food it was delicious! Only the ravioli was slightly too oily. We really enjoyed it overall and are already planning to go back!

Omg I love these guys! We had a really nice meal at Formaggio’s and the atmosphere was relaxed, perfect. They have a vegan menu as well. Very impressed

We were very pleased with all 4 meals we ordered. Three pastas (one of which was GF), and one a large pizza. They warned us the large size would be "quite" large and it was! No complaints - half of it is for lunch today. We all said we would return to try more of the menu but best of all we could sit and chat without having to shout. Of course being on First table it didn't break the bank when it came to paying.

We arrived at Formaggio’s and were greeted by a very nice waitress. By the time we left, three different staff members helped us and all were pleasant and helpful. The monkfish and sirloin steak were delicious and the desserts were exceptional. It is a restaurant that deserves your visit!

My friend and I had a lovely evening out at Formaggio's. From the moment I arrived, I felt really well looked after! Although the restaurant filled up quickly, there is enough distance between tables that it never got noisy, and my friend and I were able to enjoy a really good catch up.

The food was excellent. The arancini starter was delicious, and our gnocchi mains the lightest, freshest gnocchi either of us have ever had. I loved the selection of vegetables served with my gnocchi. We also got the duck fat potatoes as a treat and they were phenomenal.

When leaving, I noticed that Formaggio's is carbon neutral, which is fantastic.

Haven’t been to Formaggios for quite some time. We’ve always liked the food but there has been a noticeable step up in service since our last visit. Friendly staff, prompt service and very accommodating for the two gluten frees.
And the food was fantastic!!! Already planning the next visit - need to try the Toblerone cocktail.
