Not visited here for several years. Recent visit saw severe overcrowding, understaffing and little regard for the customer. Waited a long time for the order to be taken.

Wow- the piccante pizza is absolutely delicious. So fresh and full of flavour. Lovely thin base. Very authentic. Personally could have done with a tiny bit more mozzarella but was still gorgeous.

We ate as a party of 4. Got to say was very surprised at how quiet it was for a Saturday night although we did have a reservation for 9pm. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The calzone pizza is amazingly good! We will be returning.

My daughter turns 6 this week and she wanted Italian for her meal so we booked a table for 9 people.
