We visited for dinner recently and had a variety of pizzas - all freshly made and very tasty. A great time was had by all and the staff were very friendly and professional. The prosecco was excellent too! Highly recommended.

We have visited this restaurant 4 or 5 times now and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing, the portions are generous and the service is great. Truly authentic experience and much more reasonably priced than other local restaurants. Would definitely recommend.
