Been here a few times and one time it was great; efficient service, good food and drink. The most recent time I went, though, it was a bit dead. Not that wasn't anyone in there; it was heaving, but the staff either didn't seem like...More

On the evening they where queuing down the road so decided to go lunchtime. I have to say the best pizza I have ever tasted, well worth the wait. Soft base with tasty toppings. A must visit and will return
