Welcome to the home of award-winning gourmet pizza in Nelson since 2002. Excite your tastebuds with our authentic wood-fired pizzas and fresh home-mada pastas, be entertained by our lively atmosphere and treat yourself to a great night at The Hot Rock! Perfect for sharing with friends, or the whole family - we look forward to hosting you...


Great location near the Beach... Right at the doorstep of Tahuna Beach you'll find the best little pizza bar around! Decked out with chunky wooden tables and a great personality, you'll want to slide into the warm and buzzing atmosphere to experience award winning pizza and pasta. The secret's in our Italian wood-fired oven... To achieve the mouth-watering flavours, we prepare our fresh local ingredients and pizzas in an Italian wood-fired oven - the only genuine wood-fired pizzeria in Nelson! Fresh hot-smoked salmon and fantastic wood-roasted meats and veggies give our food that special something, using a fine blend of native wood for fuel that enhances the natural flavours of our fresh regional food. We put time and love into preparing our dishes... Only the best and freshest available ingredients make it onto our pizzas. Our chefs lovingly handcraft our thin base pizzas with homemade dough, sauces and toppings. Hungry yet? I haven't even told you about our delicious fresh homemade pasta and healthy salads, or the fresh mussels and hearty ribs! Treat yourself to our popular desserts. Even if you're a fussy eater there's always something we can do for you (vegetarian, vegan, wheat-free, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and egg-free options!). A great night out... It's not just the food, it's the whole experience. We support the region's craft breweries and wineries with a great selection of wines and over twenty local and international ales. At the end of your meal if you need a caffeine fix, you'll love Bel-Aire Blend of espresso coffee from Nelson's ZUMO coffee roaster. Stay wired with our free WiFi.
