The Hot Rock Gourmet Pizza Pasta Bar
Great Food, Great Service and a Great Atmosphere Since 2002
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 clean-burning native wood for fuel that enhances the natural flavours of our fresh regional food.
We put time and love into preparing your dishes...Only the best and freshest available ingredients make it onto our pizzas. Our chefs lovingly hand stretch our thin base pizzas with home-made dough, sauces and toppings. Hungry yet? I haven't even told you about our delicious fresh home-made pasta and healthy salads, or the fresh local mussels and hearty wood-roasted ribs! Treat yourself to our popular desserts. Even if you're a fussy eater or have food allergies, there's always something we can do for you - vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free (Coeliac), soy-free, egg-free, lactose and dairy-free options!
A great night out...It's not just the food, it's the whole experience. The bar is fully stocked including our extensive hand-picked selection of affordable wines and local tap beer from Townshend and Hop Farm Breweries. At the end of your meal if you need a caffeine fix, you'll love our blend of espresso coffee from Nelson's ZUMO coffee roaster. And you can stay wired with our free WiFi. It's always wise to book - give us a call right now!
