“Great food but felt a little rushed to eat it!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We waited for an eternity for our food to arrive (and with three children this was a stretch), but it was worth the wait. The pizzas were delicious, especially the vegetarian and seafood options. Drinks way over-priced for the teeniest glass and this turn me off from returning. Our table was also too dark - this might be trendy but the flickering bulb above our heads was annoying and with the darkness I could barely see what I was eating! We felt a little rushed to eat and go.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

We dined here for the first time with a group of friends who are regulars at JL and they told us we would love it, they weren't wrong. The pizzas were amazing! It was very popular so bookings are a must. We can't wait to come back soon. We would drive there just for the pizza.

“10”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

What can I say! Service was impeccable which makes the food even better though I must say that the food was just as good. Thanks for a marvelous evening. Will go there again within a blink of an eye. PS - An extra special thanks for not being pretentious. Great to have a place that enjoys food just as much as me but by the same token, are not stingy or overpriced. 5 Stars and of course a 10!!!! Thanks so much.

“Thin crust pizza”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

This is a nice restaurant with a wonderful ambience. The pizza is beautiful thin and well worth a try. However this time it seen the oven was too hot and there was black suit on the pizza. Even though the pizza tasted a little grilled it was still delicious. Will go back again.

“Snobby rude waitresses destroy this place”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

I live across the road and have been coming to this place since it first opened. It used to be so much better until the last 3 times I have been here we managed to get the same rude waitress who just wants to feed you and rush you out. After going back there again and another waitress acted with similair rude manners I am beginning to think that the manners are perhaps stemming from management. Unless they all go to the same bad etiquette training. They will interrupt your meal that you most likely will be enjoying numerous times and then try rush you out taking your food before you are even finished with basically your fork still in your hand. They all seemed to be hired as they all come across as rude snobby young girls with bad attitudes.

A real shame as they do good food. They may still get my takeaway business however I will not want to go back there for that treatment.
