Popped in for a late Sunday Evening snack

Loads of choice with plentiful free water

We had one each, but the portions are large, and would share two pizzas between three next time

I had the Carbonara which was great

My friend and I decided to take a day trip to Oxford and saw this place whilst walking past! We decided, seeing as Italy are known for their pizza, that we would stop off and give it a go.. we were VERY happy.

As we walked in, we got a very warm welcome from the man making the pizza and saying hello in Italian creating that Italian vibe straight away. Looking through the menu, the Carbonara pizza caught my eye!

We decided to share one with a gluten free base! We waited a total of about 7 mins for the food to come out which is pretty quick if you ask me! When it came out, it looked just as amazing as it tasted! Half way through the meal, the man who made the pizza checked up and asked how it was, needless to say he was pleased to hear we were loving it!

Will recommend for anyone who wants a reasonably priced Italian pizza!

Popped in with friends for a snack at around 3pm on a Thursday. The staff were lovely but the food was odd, and the place was huge and lacking in any charm. A focaccia sandwich was made with flat bread only about 2mm thick, not my understanding of focaccia at all. And our pizza was tasteless. We ordered one with Italian sausage and when it came, the 'sausage' turned out to be a few small bits of mince-like pale meat which were sprinkled over a tomatoless base.
My stars are for the staff, not the food.

Nice Pizza early evening with family which was very nice and reasonable price. Followed by ice cream. Beer was nice but only a small selection of beers. Family have been here before and said it was a nice place to go and it was.
Staff very friendly and they also had a football table which was free which was nice.
Lots of space to eat or to pop into for a coffee.

The pizza is superb, no question about that! :) We had several, and they were one better than the other. The base is chewy, light and fluffy, yet crispy, all at the same time, and very tasty. And the toppings are interesting, delicious, and there's a good variety on offer. They're not huge, but one should be enough for more people, or you can always go for the all-you-can-eat deal. :) Oh, and there's a good range of vegetarian options.

Otherwise the menu is limited (mind you, understandably so), and the couple of side dishes we tried were a bit meh. Drinks list is limited also, and not terribly exciting. On this occasion, our drinks were served a bit too warm, too, and our beer 'glasses' were in fact plastic (c'mon!). The drinks aren't cheap, either, which makes them probably the worst value in the whole experience.

Decor and ambience-wise the place is utilitarian, borderline fast-food'y, and quite noisy (a lot of hard surfaces, kids running around on the day we were there, a lot of noise from the road and the open kitchen, etc., and what's with that horrid tinny muzak?!) — not particularly pleasant or comfortable, in other words, and certainly *not* one for a 'special occasion' of any type.

In conclusion, if you want pizza in or anywhere near Headington, this is definitely the place to head to, if the pizza itself is your main concern (and why wouldn't it be?!). But for me, next time I'll probably opt for take-home instead — that way I'll get to enjoy the best of it (= the pizza) in the comfort of my own home (= avoiding the worst of it, ie. the atmosphere and noise), and I'll be better off on the drinks and music front also. :)
