Unfortunately we could not try the food as it was full in the evening, which looked good and had to be nicer than the disappointing pizzas served next door, but we did spend time there in the afternoon and very much enjoyed it. Great selection...More

Had excellent finish to an evening here. Only noticed it on way out of town. Friendly staff, lovely merlot and great laugh with board games. Wish we'd have had more time but will definitely visit again

We always pay a visit here when in Keswick. Although small we usually manage to find a table and we had several small plates to share. The food is excellent and pizzas also very good. The atmosphere is always lively and friendly and service efficient.

Always come here for a coffee when visiting Keswick. Good coffee, great sticky toffee cake although hot chocolate was almost too sickly - like liquid chocolate, which maybe isn't a bad thing!More

The atmosphere and interior decor of the cafe is lovely. Pizza is thin and light meaning not too much of a heavy meal leaving room for pudding too!

Thanks for your lovely comments, that’s the way forward with Neapolitan pizzas, having a super thin and crispy base.....Means there’s always room for dessert! Really glad you enjoyed your night :) Kind Regards, Genna

Always love the atmosphere. Very small and you may end up on a table with another couple, but more than likely you'll end up in conversation with the people around you. Limited menu, but great pizza!More

Thank you for your review :) We do sometimes wish we could fit more tables in or a bit more room behind the bar.....but I think if we did we’d loose our cosy atmosphere and quirkyness of the place :) People always make new friends...More
