Fancied a pizza and heading to Gunwharf but really wanted a change from the chains. What a great find - fab little place, table service, very friendly, quirky feel and then great food. Great find and will certainly be going again now going to Southsea...More

Nice little Italian restaurant serving excellent pizza and pasta from it's short menu. Short is usually best when it comes down to quality. Be aware this is a cash only establishment. Very nice space and team.

Feels a little crowded but great food. Arancini was delicious and the pizza had a crispy dough with fresh toppings. Will go again!

Been quite a few times for the lunch time deal. Specialising in stone baked pizzas with some pasta dishes definitely worth a visit. Very friendly staff.

Really enjoyed it here, relaxed atmosphere and comfortable seating. Everyone thought their pizza’s were great and the best they had eaten in a while. I had the molten chocolate cake for pudding and it was delicious, really recommend it. Cash only.
