We visited this restaurant based on the good reviews it has received. The owner was working by himself which meant there was a bit of a wait to be served. This didn't really matter though because the restaurant is cosy and comfortable. We had a...More

Lovely thin crust pizza, light and tasty. We had the margarita, bbq chicken, meat feast and veggies, plus garlic bread. The least feast was loaded with high quality meat, and the tomato sauce was home made! We watched Matt make it all fresh from scratch!...More
