The pizza bases here are perfect - crips yet chewy, cooked to perfection. The Napoletana had just the right amount of anchovies and olives. Supreme was also delicious. Owen by the same family for 29 years, and served with no fuss by those family members.

We regularly get Friday night takeaway pizza from Il Cugino. The pizza is absolutely delicious. Lovely thinnish base, really flavoursome tomato sauce and great quality toppings. Sometimes I just get mushroom as that's all is needed for a great tasting pizza from this restaurant! We popped in later than usual last week (around 9pm) and the place was bopping. Lots... More

Everything about this place is ok, pizza is ok although the menu could do with updating, but hey it works for them. Don't think I'll be a regular but hey that's just me.

I was brought here by a very close family Friend who lives here now. He was brought by his medical class mate. It is a best Italian food ever tasted outside of Italy. Warm and friendly service. The grilled octopus took a very Long time, but it is worth the wait. Soft and crispy.

This is the first visit I have even made to it. We popped in there for a quick meal with fussy eater granddaughter aged... More

Family run with old school buzz. This is how I remember neighbourhood pizza places from the 1980s. Quick service. Pasta sauce was not particularly nice and wouldn't recommend. Margarita pizza was ok but a bit salty. Given the glut of decent pizza around I would rate this place as middling.

I have had take away pizzas and eat in pizzas. I have only had the vegetarian so that is all I can talk about. Fresh, hot and tasty. One time I asked for no pineapple but they forgot and gave me pineapple. The people are great and the service is friendly I would thoroughly recommend this place, take a bottle... More

Their food is homemade and not expensive like other establishments in the area. The pizza is good so is the pasta. My favorite is the napolitana pizza with plenty anchovies.
