The Fetacini Basciola is to die for, the overall food is excellent and well priced. The pizzas are cooked in the Fire in the Belly HOT Dragon oven and are delicious. You can also order to take away,

Been dining here on most visits to Lismore over the past 7-8 years, and never been disappointed yet. Great staff, great atmosphere, and great wood-fired pizzas.

Great service but vulgar pizza. We ordered four pizzas and two salads. Salads were ok, pizzas were freaking hideous. Pizza from dominos are better.

I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your pizza. It is unfortunate that you didn't bring that to our attention earlier in your dinner as we could have worked something out for you. If you would like to come and discuss with me how we could have made your experience better, i am more than happy to listen. More

Went on a really humid and hot night and says they have air con but the temperature seemed the same as outside. We also got the table right near the pizza oven which warmed things up a bit.

I went here with my wife a dew days ago and it was overall a good experience. The food was nice and the price was fair. They ran out of a couple of dishes that we wanted to order but compensated it with some courtesy snacks that were very nice. The place is well located, ingredients are fresh and staff... More

My roasted eggplant pizza was prefect. Plenty of quality ingredients, two of them added after firing, giving it a nice juicy consistency. And the simple garden side salad with Italian vinaigrette was also just right. I did ask for extra vinaigrette from the ordering and they did deliver. Thank you. The restaurant is about 5 minutes walk from the main... More
