Enjoyed a wonderful night at this small but friendly pizza Shop. Staff were very friendly ands helpful and the wood fired pizza was to die for. I have eaten many from all parts of thr world and this is right up there with the best. Recommended.

Without a doubt this is one of the best pizza restaurant anywhere and I travel a lot. The thin crust is perfect the suggested topping are original and really tasty. This time I had thin strips of beef, we had a lovely veggie and a chicken. All just perfect and absolutely no complaints. Maybe the service can be slow but... More

First impression - interior: is okay but not that simple/antique/rustic Italian style. Just looks old and like it needs a repair. Wouldn't call it cosy. Very humid and warm inside, they might need to install an aircon. Service is quite laid back and relaxed which is usual in Australia. Now most important thing - FOOD. They advertise themselves as wood... More

Anyone who frequents Ben & Jerry's Outdoor Cinemas each Summer has probably tried one of the pizzas from Vespa's menu but they are bigger, badder and awesomer when you eat in at the restaurant. The restaurant itself seems a bit dingy from the outside, but this is casual eating at its best and is just as good when dining with... More

Been here twice RIDICULOUS wait time...was told that our order was behind a party upstairs...lame excuse you should cater for a party separately to normal patrons...it doesn't take an hour and a half to cook a pizza...we gave this a second chance but won't be going back again...plenty of wood fire pizza restaurants with better service

We found that the four pizza,s we ordered & consumed there were of a pretty high standard , not like the pizza we are use too! The only let down was the fact that due to environmental issues the wood fired ovens were put on hold, not to understate the fact that the pizza had an excellent base with heaps... More

We live in Park building where Vespa has relocated and were looking forward to having good pizza so close. But the reality is the opposite. Toppings taste sweet and sugary as if they come from a supermarket jar, cheese is cooked hard, not runny and again tastes like the cheapest supermarket brand, base was tasteless - frozen, bought in? Tried... More

Woodfired pizzas, with tasty base and tastier toppings. I used the online order and it was simple for the takeaway. Inside was appealing and will stop in for dinner soon. Went to the Stanley St store. Staff were friendly and helpful and wine selection seems interesting. Will use again.

I remember vespa pizza to have great tasty full of flavour pizza's. I visited the new location at Newstead last night, and found the pizza to be terrible. I ordered the Veg-edible, (possibly the wrong name) it had half the ingredients missing and I asked and was charged for extra sauce and the pizza came with no sauce. I am... More
