Our party of 16 had dinner here during the week. We arrived 10 minutes early and we were told they dont open for another 10 minutes. All we wanted was a drink as it was a hot day. We were left standing at the front of the restaurant for the whole 10 minutes. Bad service. We had a set menu... More

The pizza was great here - nice base and fresh tasty toppings. Service was average if not a little pushy. I guess they aim to turnover as many tables as possible.

I'm very fussy when it comes to pizza, there is not a lot of places I can go and actually eat pizza and enjoy it, but I LOVE the pizza here. It can be a bit pricey but personally I think its worth it. I also find the service very friendly and helpful. I'd book in advance, every time we... More

I had heard a lot about the pizza here and I was disappointed. I make better pizza at home. Crust was overcooked, some of the toppings were bland and they do not offer sugar free soft drinks. Service was good but if I am going to pay $20 for a pizza it needs to taste better than Dominoes.

Ive been going here on and off for 10 years. Was introduced to it by a girlfriend and its now on my top 10 list. I love the mushroom pizza there. Its more of your upper class type of pizza rather than your la porchetta (which i freakin love too). Anyway, if you are in the area and a $20... More

Got there early (dining with kids) 5.45pm only to see another family of 5 enter so we followed them in. We were told in a very brisk manner by the make manager that the restaurant wasn't open but we could wait in this tiny bar??? type area pressed against the front glass. There were 11 of us squished in there!!... More

We certainly expected far better, having read all the rave reviews. The pizzas toppings were scant and the pizzas definitely over-priced. The gnocchi al forno lacked the lightness usually associated with well-made gnocchi, and sadly the serving was less than generous. Not impressed!

Still well worth a visit even if they forgot our side order of beans--twice!--and the delicious pizzas appeared to have been sitting a little before they came to us. Fun, quick, and easy.

Not the Australian version of pizza, but real style and flavours from Italy. Simple, thin crust, special flavours, fresh and light ingredients. All the things that make a good pizza and keep it Italian. Super accompaniments - the potatoes in duck fat and the fennel salad are to die for. Exceptional service, clean surroundings, immaculate staff and a real buzz... More

Amazing pizzas with thin crispy crusts and a vast variety of toppings. Great staff and the restaurant is always buzzing. We always go here when in Melbourne.
