I'm super stoked that one of the best pizza joints in Auckland has moved into my working local. Epolito's is by far one of the most authentic places to pick up a great example of a true New York-Italian pizza and the owner Chicky always smashes it out bases, sauces and toppings that create pure pizza perfection. Once calling Onehunga home, Epolito's has now moved into the heart of Ponsonby and is situated in Richmond Rd. It's the ideal stop for me on the way home and, although I love choices, I'm strictly a margherita girl at Epolito's because it's finger-lickin' good.
I simply LOVE Epolito’s - but, I’ll let another Localist lover and true Epolitos fan, ‘Marni P.’, do the talking this time: “If you have not tried Epolito’s pizzas than you have not lived! If you are a true pizza lover then this is were you want to be. If you want a pizza that is as big as your table then I suggest trying the large size. Epolitos is an authentic New York-Italian styled pizzeria - the bases are made fresh everyday by the pizza chef who is originally from New York and has the accent to go with it. If you are someone who loves classic Italian pizzas then try the margherita, if not there are a lot more to choose from on the menu. If you are a ‘more modern’ or ‘something different’ kind of person I suggest trying the artichoke heart, anchovy and lemon pizza - it will blow your mind and give you a whole new look at how pizza should taste and look.” ...AND TAKE NOTE: As of today (18th November, 2014), Epolito’s have a new location on Richmond Road in Grey Lynn, but are in the process of renovating - keep an eye on their Facebook page for an opening date!

Long before Sal's came along, there was Epolito's. It's a bit of a mission to get to from where I live but definitely worth it for the amazing, massive, thin-based New York-style pizzas. It's a pretty small place with limited seating so booking is a good idea. Take your friends and order a couple of the 18-inch pizzas, it's a good time.
Awesome place to eat American style pizza. The chef is so lovely. It's hard to believe that this place is so hidden but it was packed and the orders kept coming through for takeaway, so I knew this would be amazing. The pizza's are huge and can get as large as 18", so its perfect for feeding a crowd. Love this place, can't wait to come back!
