Here's what our customers have been saying about us...
If you are not already an Epolito's regular, become one soon. But for goodness' sake, keep it to yourself or we won't be able to get in the door.

This is the ONLY pizza in Auckland. I drive from
Ponsonby just to get REAL pizza!
"WOW, REAL Pizza in New Zealand! Every one made with
love, hand-stretched and twirled-in-the-air base, by a New
Yorker who KNOWS New York Pizza!"
"I’ve eaten pizza all over the world, even Italy but one
of the best I’ve tried, certainly the best in New Zealand.
The base, crust and cheese is absolutely perfect and you
can’t say that about a lot of pizza’s here and the
ingredients varied and fresh. You don’t get to represent NZ
if you’re not damn good… and they are very very good!!!"
"I came to NZ 8 yrs ago from Philadelphia—a city with a large Italian/Sicilian population. I grew up on great pizza and was going through serious withdrawal here in Aucks. I eventually found Gina's, then Al Volo... and this kept me placated. Then I found Epilito's and was in heaven.
A good pizza, like a good house, depends on it's
foundation. If you don't get the dough, sauce and cheese
right, anything you put on top is doomed to failure.
Chicalita gets it RIGHT! So much so that she recently won
Best Pizza in New Zealand. And that using a convection oven
rather than her glorious stone oven. Even hobbled she beat
out everyone else. That says it all."
"I had the pleasure while visiting New Zealand to meet
the gals at epolito's Pizzeria. It was a godsend to find
such a devine Pie here as I was concerned about withdrawals
of NY pizza. The "Real" thing even down to the hard core
language and humour of New Yorker Chicolena!"
