My wife and I tried this on spec. It was a nice place - run by an Italian but fair to say not cooked by.

I had pasta (quarto fromagi) which was very nice and would readily order the same again.

My wife ordered a margarita con buffalo. The base was excellent. The topping was a bit bland. My wife thought it was missing herbs or seasoning. It may in fact have been that there was simply too much cheese - not something I thought I would ever say! It seemed that the regular mozzarella and the buffalo were loaded and it seemed a bit much.

Surprisingly, my pasta arrived way ahead of my wife's pizza so I ended up half way through my meal before she even had hers. It wasn't that busy and we suspect they somehow forgot to put the pizza on.

We sat outside. It was a fairly muggy night. The ceiling fans were on but they seemed somewhat old and in need of some TLC - with the rotating function not working properly leaving us a little overheated in a corner near the pizza oven. We could of course have moved inside but on the other hand, the fans may benefit from a bit of WD40!

If you want to have a real pizza baked in a stoneowen as they should be done go here. The staff are helpful and serviceminded. If you order meat on the pizza remember that it will not taste as usual if you are from Europe. In my mind vegetables on the pizza here is preferable othewise if you just look at the pizza you could be in Italy. The staff understands italian.
