One of Christchurch's oldest restaurants is back in the CBD at the beautifully restored, historic Ironside house on Salisbury Street. The new location has convenient parking accessed via Montreal Street.

The legendary Spag's pizzeria has been thrilling locals with expertly made pizzas since 1978. Dough is made fresh daily, following a recipe that's been refined over the decades. The dough is then rolled to order and topped with Spag's special home-made tomato sauce.

Choose from classics like Hawaiian, Meat Lovers and Canterbury Roast Lamb or opt for tasty toppings like roasted vegetables, chicken or seafood. There's a wide selection of salads and pastas on the main menu if you don't feel like pizza. Starters include hot kumara chips, chicken tenders and freshly baked garlic bread.

The restaurant has a warm and cosy atmosphere with three dining rooms, a separate bar and an outside deck area. Ideal for families, friends and, well, just about anybody who loves pizzas.

Food and service were great. I had an amazing pizza (broccoli and blue cheese is to die for) and my partner also enjoyed his. I would highly recommend Spags for vegetarians as the vege pizza list is extensive and always yum. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food. Our waitress was lovely too. I would love to see some more vegetarian pasta dishes on the menu.

A lovely spot and a great place for a meal! Extensive vegetarian/vegan options available and currently new menu items are being promoted.

We had 4 different pizzas which were all great full of taste The garlic bread was 3 slices of a loaf that was cut it was very over buttered But yummy just watch your tops ladies.
With the wooden floors I would hate to be here when it’s really busy and full it would be very noisy , we had another family with 4 children playing tag inside and outside running around slamming the door which was at our backs we had our meal quickly to get away as even our 2 children found it hard with there noise and staff not saying anything to them.
Overall food was good survive was ok staff could smile (they did when we paid) parking was easy as we used the parking at the back of the property.

Food was mint, building and environment was old school which added to the overall experience. Staff were friendly, twas a good time!

The kids meals were charged full price And they were not given the activity pack we should have been advised of this as it would have been more economical to let my children choose a small pizza of the full menu

The atmosphere was great and it was a very cute spot surrounded by greenery despite being in town. The servers were lovely and helpful. The food was for the most part great but some was not what I expected. Overall I would highly recommend this place and would come return again.

The food was amazing, love all the vegetarian options. We felt the pizzas were cooked to perfection. The Spag chips are a bit of a favourite with our whanau. We were somewhat disappointed with the service...a smile doesn't go astray along with a warm greeting.

Nice homey restaurant in the midst of the busy city. Food was delish although if you plan on ordering the Chili and Garlic Prawn Pizza, I hope you enjoy wet spinach. Other than that, can't fault a thing!

The food and experience could not be faulted. However after having left the location and thought about the cost of dinner it became aware we had in fact paid full price for our meal this was even after mentioning the fact on arrival that we had a booking through first table. What is the point of booking thru first table if you are intact going to pay more for your meal if you factor in the booking fee.

I hadn’t been to spagalimis in YEARS. Was great to go back and take the kids. The restaurant is really cute and the service was great. First Table allows me to take the kids out for dinner to different places more often without costing an arm and a leg. Thanks team.

Service was outstanding! Friendly staff who made sure we were taken care of. Food tasted great, however the wedges were only warm and could have used more seasoning. Overall was great and would go again!

Fab night at spags in the city prompt service and reasonable wait times, super friendly and efficient staff. Tiramisu not authentic but still yum

Excellent staff that were only too happy to help. The meal was lovely and more than enough. We were seated in an small area with alot of other diners, which was fine, but got abit claustrophobic. But all in all it was a great evening and I would recommend dining there to anyone. Thanks to the Staff.

Still the best pizzas since the 80s xx

- dined at Spagalimis Pizzeria CBD on

Loved the food although limited kids menu only offering crumbed chicken pieces and chips although I know it is a pizza restaurant and only problematic if your children don't feel like pizza which happened to be the case. The food came out in a timely manner there was certainly a good selection of pizzas to choose from and the ones we chose were delicious.

Food was average at best. If we hadn’t if had a voucher we would have asked to speak to the manager. Service wasn’t great although we didn’t want to be pestered we weren’t even checked on once to see how the food was or to be offered more drinks. We won’t be going back

Food was amazing, as always. Quality of food is really high across all Spag's restaurants, and this one was no exception. Service was efficient and very speedy. Food & drinks came quickly.They have a lovely garden outside to sit in, we sat inside and that was nice too. Was a little noisy as we were sat near a table of people with loud voices, but the lovely pizzas we ordered made up for it. Fantastic and will be returning again soon. Spagalimis is a Christchurch institution for a reason!!!

Pizzas were great but we were gutted the sauce for the spags fries has changed.Its not very nice now! The prices have gone up heaps. We were also shocked to find they have a two for one medium pizza so a waste of time going thru firsttable as we would of paid the same price as anyone who just walked in off the street.

- dined at Spagalimis Pizzeria CBD on

The food was decent. I'm not sure I'd go there without the first table voucher, but it was good enough.
pros: they were relaxed and friendly and did not chase us out even though we sat in their space for hours chatting (it was a quiet night, but still). good atmosphere and the space is divided into sections such that even when it's full it would feel less crowded.
cons: none really... food was acceptable, I may have expected a little better for their full price and compared to what they were 8 ears ago, but it's a chain now after all and the discount made it plenty good enough for value.

We have 2 new converts to the wonders of Spag’s Chips, “Mum why are you ordering regular chips, can’t we have kumera chips?” Yes, we can have both. Where are the chips and sweet & sour sauce kids? “It was too yum”. And the Roast lamb pizza is still delicious.
I’m currently enjoying one of life’s best things- leftover pizza for breakfast
