“So good we went there twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

This is a little pizza restaurant which is tucked away on the outskirts of Lagos town. We went early the first time we ate here and managed to get a table.(7.15) We booked a table the second time and were glad we did as it was very busy. They offer a menu and also a sheet of ingredients for you to tick off and design your own pizza. We all had pizza and all enjoyed it, with any remaining pieces brought back to hotel in a pizza box. The bill for three of us was approx 35 euro both times. Very good value. Worth a visit if you enjoy pizza. Service was very friendly. Lots of locals also seem to come here for takeaway pizza also which is another option if you are staying nearby.

“worth looking out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

this place is slightly out of the town at the bottom of a block of flats. they were full when we arrived and we agreed to return in half an hour when a table was available. great concept of a tick sheeet for your own pizza where you choose your toppings all for a fixed price of e7.90 each. our boys loved this and made up names for themselves.
Seemed to be frequented by mainly local/ portuguese clientele partly due to the location.
The food was enjoyable and the service friendly.
We would return

“Good food, amazing prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Concur with what many others have said. It was our first night so took a chance and just turned up. We had to wait 20 minutes for a table as it is quite small, but no great hardship. Just loved the €7.90 tick list pizza, which 3 out of the 4 of us opted for. What came was tasty and filling, leaving no room for dessert. Garlic bread to start, 4 pizzas, 2 rounds of drinks, for under €60, and 15 minutes walk from our villa. Excellent. Just be aware, they don't take cards.

“Great pizza, good prices, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

We ate here twice on our recent holiday to Lagos. It is a little outside the city walls, but was very handy to where we were staying. There was a standard Italian menu with set pastas and pizzas, or there was a sheet where you could mark off which toppings you wanted - the kids loved this option. The pizzas were quite large - good value for around E8 each.
The first day we went in we got the last unreserved table, so if you want to eat here, they recommend making a reservation. The second time we arrived before 6 and had no problems getting a table. The waitress, Natasha had very good English and was very patient with the kids..and my pathetic attempts at Portuguese.
I would also recommend trying the espumante sangria - loads of fresh strawberries, mint and a vanilla stick...:D

“Best pizza this holiday...in fact this year.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We decided to eat here after seeing the positive reviews - 'best pizza in Lagos' etc - they are not wrong. This place is a bit out of the way but we managed to find it and there is even a handy car park across the road. Nothing to look at from the outside and kind of dated inside - could do with a sprucing up but who cares - the food is great and reasonable. We loved the novel idea for ordering your customised pizza - a slip of paper where you write your name and tick the toppings you want. Our kids went for boring margarita as usual - there was a bit too much cheese for their liking but fine for a normal person! I had a vegetarian pizza and was pleased to see artichoke as topping option as this is not always on pizza menus. Hubby went for basically every topping going - as men do. We also had a mixed salad which was huge. The pizza bases were perfect - fresh tasting dough, crispy all the way through, but not too hard. The pizzas were quite big and we took half of mine and my son's home and reheated the next day - just as delicious. If you want a decent pizza I highly recommend. We didn't try the pasta - maybe next year!
