This restaurant has the best pizzas - a hidden gem as we walked by just thinking it was a bar. A lovely surprise when we realised they did wood fired pizzas too!

Welcoming. A small restaurant but did not feel crushed or intrusive. Service was quick and efficient. Great menu for pizza and very happy to swop around toppings. Very large pizza but with very thin base and loaded with toppings. Was a great evening out with friends midweek.

A great place for delicious pizza. Lots of authentic toppings and a base that is not too heavy nor oily. The welcome and service is also extra-special, waiter Alex being a man of great patience and memory. Nothing is too much trouble here.

Thank Sue M
