The pizza here is made fresh to order. They also have the option for vegan cheese and the crust is vegan. Server was really friendly and helpful.

Visited once. Pizza was not good. Crust was too chunky and chewy. Flavours were uninspiring. Service was poor. Price was inadequate for the product and experience. Would not return.
