I have been a fairly loyal customer to Parnell’s, Non Solo Pizza ever since I stumbled across it with my high school friend group out shopping one weekend.
It was winter, so naturally, pizza or pasta was on the menu for lunch to fuel us up for an afternoon of shopping.
Down a small alley way, lit by fairy lights is the best (upmarket) pizza place in Auckland, without a doubt!
The Medeterranio Pizza
A house-made woodfire pizza, topped with Italian bacon, mozzarella, tomato, rosemary and pecorino is my absolute ‘go to’ order at NSP.
The base alone is made by the love of the hands of the restaurant’s Italian chefs, and cooked to perfection in a woodfired oven.
The top quality ingredients that top the mediterraneo classic is Italian bacon or prosciutto – thinly sliced and salty – giving an Italian pizza experience like no other. You feel cultured cutting into a slice of NSP pizza, and the staff and atmosphere help give you a true Italian experience in Auckland’s city hub.
$25 for a pizza, but if you’re looking for the best, this is the place to go for any Italian cuisine or pizza lovers.
Ravioli De Pollo
All of NSP’s pasta is homemade using free range eggs. I think this definitely adds to the delicateness of their pasta dishes as they are all crafted with such knowledge and care.
Another good thing about NSP’s pasta selection is that they all come in either half or full sizes (depending on how hungry you are – you can choose). But I personally go for the full size, because there’s really nothing quite the same as having leftover restaurant pasta for lunch the next day (I recommend this option).
One of the pasta dishes I have ordered one of two times is the Ravioli Di Pollo. Chicken and spinach ravioli with thyme, sage, basil, vine ripened tomato and parmesan – a truly delicious Italian dish.
I’m a lover of ravioli, and love to experiment making my own at home. The Ravioli Di Polli at NSP was what triggered my curiosity in pasta-making.
Each Ravioli cooked ‘al dante’ filled with a moist chicken and spinach flavor bomb filling that paired beautifully with the acidic vine ripened tomatoes and shaved parmesan and sage butter.
For any pasta fans out there, I highly recommend this dish.
