360 Degrees Pizza: Restaurant Review

On the 25th of March, I had the opportunity to catch up with an old friend, and there's no way this can ever happen without food! So we chose to meet at 360 Degrees Pizza, at ABC Place on Waiyaki Way, and I thought this'd be a fun way to get in a restaurant review too.

I'd been to 360 once before, but didn't get a chance to do the review then.


The ambience of 360 is really fresh and lively; the day we went for lunch was unbearably hot (thank goodness the rains are finally upon us), and so sitting in a shaded area that was open and allowed us to enjoy the breeze was VERY nice! I can easily see 360 being a place I could go for a casual coffee and dessert with friends, or a more formal dinner if need be. 

As it was a holiday (Easter Monday), they were still serving their brunch menu at lunch time. While I didn't go for brunch food, there was no way I was going to turn down a mimosa (prosecco with passion juice in this case).

When my friend showed up, we realised we had so much to catch up on, and decided that starters were definitely in order. We settled upon the truffle + parmesan shoestring fries and I kid you not- I could probably survive on these, they were so good! Crispy and flavourful, these made me very, very happy.

Soon enough, it was time to order our mains. The conversation was flowing and we'd gotten off to a good start with the fries. I chose the Diavola pizza, while my friend got the lemon chicken tagliatelle (apologies for the weird angle on the pictures- for some reason, they wouldn't rotate).

If I thought the starters were good, then holy crap- the pizza was absolutely out of this world! It was spicy, but not overpoweringly so, and the flavours blended together perfectly. The pizza base was great too- the crusts were tasty on their own. Normally I'm not a fan of dishes that have onions that are anything less than all the way cooked, but these worked so well on this pizza that I really didn't mind at all! Would I order this again? In a heartbeat! 

Since we did starters and main meals, we weren't going to miss out on dessert. Now, I absolutely forgot what I ordered since I forgot to take a picture of the dessert menu and couldn't find it online either- it was some sort of strawberry something something, and my friend ordered the beignets. I was a little skeptical about her choice; having had beignets in Louisiana, I was unsure as to how these would compare, but they were really good! I actually ended up taking her leftover beignets home. 

My dessert was really good too- the only thing I'd have hoped for would've been more of a strawberry flavour throughout the dish.

You're welcome to help me figure out what this was!

All in all, I definitely loved my experience at 360, and had no complaints! The service was fast and very friendly- genuinely so, not doing it because they'd get in trouble if they didn't. The ambience was perfect for the day, but adaptable as I'd mentioned above. I loved the food, and had to go nap when I got home to get over my food coma! Sure, the total was a little bit pricey, but if you count the fact that we got drinks, starters, main meals AND dessert, and that these were all worth it, I think the price makes sense. 



To keep up to date on 360, check out their Facebook page and their website (where you can take a look at their menus too). 

Have you been to 360 yet? What did you think? I'd love to hear more in the comments below! And if you haven't yet been there; what're you waiting for?

Your meal looked amazing! I'm so jealous...I'm on a new diet plan and haven't eaten pizza in weeks now. I don't know how I'm surviving! LOL

Oh my gosh, YUM! I think I'd have gone with the Arugula + Balsamic pizza. You've got me craving any kind of pizza now :)
