The last time I ate at Lambretta's was 12 years ago. They haven't slipped at all and provide good quality pizza and a cup of tea at reasonable cost.

Only stopped in for a quick late morning coffee and the young lady who served me was very nice and polite. Very good coffee and warm venue. Will return.

Cold wet winter morning breakfast. Plenty of seating from small to large tables. Nice atmosphere with scooters on the wall. Everyone had different meals and coffees but all were nice size and great taste. Coffee great plus. Highly recommend for all.

Stopped in Lambretta's for gelato while in Nelson, New Zealand. It seemed to be a very popular place for dining but we were only interested in dessert. The gelato selections were limited but what we got was quite tasty and was reasonably priced. Recommended for...More
