A busy and fun place to eat. Menu good and food doesn't disappoint. Staff were friendly and service was good. Kids loved the pizzas. Pasta good too.

Ive regularly been to lambrettas but i think the food selection and staff have been disappointing the last few times. The prices have been going up and up. $9 for a pie now. It was a farewell treat for us and we didnt see anything on the menu that really excited us. Food was good, but the service was shocking.... More

It was a raining sunday morning and the cafe was full, they only had one person on the coffee machine and it took ages to get it plus people that arrived after us received their coffee before us. We had to follow up and asked for our coffees to come in takeaways as it was a 30 minute wait and... More

Found Lambretta's by accident and as my husband is an old scooter driver (TV175 Lambretta), we went in for coffee. One of the best cappuccinos I've had here and the best ambience! Scooters everywhere and +++ posters and pictures of scooters. My husband bought a lovely T shirt.

Dropped in for a quick bit me and coffee, and Lambretta did not disappoint! Cabinet food was well presented, fresh and delicious. Coffee was quick out, and although a tad strong had a good flavour

Went to Lambrettas with my daughter and grandchildren who are both toddlers. This is the best set up for coffee/dining out with small people who are fantastically curious. Kind of like a covered courtyard with heating if needed. A door between it and the rest of the cafe. Tables, high chairs and toys! My daughter and I got to have... More

We had a bus to catch to Picton and needed a place that was open early for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Most are not open early but Lambretta's was open. It was very average but we were glad to have a place to eat.

Service spot on, especially for a busy, rainy public holiday in Nelson. Pizza had a good bite to it, just as we wanted. Nice pinot recommended - could've stayed all day but the weather cleared up. Street side seating was fun. See you again.

My lamb salad was very tasty and reasonably priced. My husband thought the chicken pie was excellent. Service was quick and friendly.
