Booked online for 8 people couple hours before dining on a Saturday night. Waitress explained an hour wait for mains. Initially put off by that but ordered anyway and pleasantly surprised the wait was more like 30-40 mins. Pizza bread and wedges while we waited.

If you like gourmet pizzas this is your go to. . But they have a varried menu to cater to those without such an appreciation for Italian type dishes. . With a small desert menu that compliments other dishes on the menu. .

Stopped on our way north for an early dinner and glad we did. Prompt service. Good food. We arrived shortly after 5pm so just a few tables occupied. I can imagine it gets very busy after 6pm. Kids loved the pizza and the pasta dish I had, tasted better than it sounded. Good for casual dining.

This was a great place for a party of 7 + 2 kids - Despite a stuff up with the booking which was emailed and then I called the next day - they still got the day wrong BUT they accommodated us when we arrived there. The 1 metre long pizza was brilliant and the atmosphere was great Cheers
