Mamma mia! The Bicycle Thief in Christchurch is the Italian bistro you’ve been searching for.

Set amongst beautiful green fields, picturesque vineyards and quiet backroads, this is the ideal place for a relaxing meal out. Dine alfresco in the garden and bask in the tranquillity of this area, or sit inside for a cosy, intimate dinner.

On the menu, you’ll find Italian classics like fresh, homemade pastas and pizzas made with a mix of traditional Italian ingredients and local New Zealand produce. The pappardelle al ragù with the succulent house-made venison ragù is not something to be overlooked. The Thief’s favourite pizza decked with coppa salami, Italian chorizo and porchetta is one for the meat-lovers. Vegetarians, vegans and gluten-free folk rejoice as the team at The Bicycle Thief have designed mouth-watering dishes just for you.

No Italian meal is complete without an Italian vino or cold beer. Browse the long list of cocktails too and you’ll find aperol spritz, bellini, campari and much more – did someone say cin cin? Finish off on a high note with the decadent tiramisu or the trio of gelato paired with a nice liqueur to wash down the sweetness.

Full of character and pure yumminess, The Bicycle Thief is a special Italian sanctuary ready to welcome you.
