Grabbed dinner here in between cursed child part 1&2. Its right around the corner from about 6 theatres and yet not super busy. The staff was friendly and the food is really good. It wasn't over priced considering the area.

First visit at the recommendation of a friend. Fantastic pizzas at between £6-£8 - a lovely little place to visit before a show or gallery. Huge menu and accommodating, friendly staff. Will definitely remember next time I'm in Soho.

The pizza is pretty nice, the pasta average. Nothing spectacular, but the low price still makes it worth it for a quick bite to eat.
