Do order one pizza at the time since they are very big. But they are very good if not the best we have eaten. The service is okey but the night We visited this restaurant it was crowded and very noisy.

Amazing big Pizzas, absolutely delicious, brilliant staff and incredible value. Don't think as we did folks waiting outside are queueing, they maybe waiting for takeaway Pizzas or just chatting.

We had a great time here - the staff were lovely as was the food! The pizza and fried calamari were so good, and we down them with some nice cold house white. Perfect for a summer's eve!

Since it's always packed in the restaurant and people are in a line in front we arrived just before the opening at 7 pm. We tested the mussels, caprese salad and two different sorts of pizza, all great. Service and atmosphere are perfect.
