Good But inconsistent

Good seafood risotto all the time when you order. However pizza was always inconsistent, need to order exact detail ingredients of your liking instead of picking their menu and they will surprised you how good their pizza can be.

Random choice of where to eat after a day at the zoo. Lovely staff and yummy pizza. The carbonara pasta my daughter had tasted awesome

They offer 3 sizes of pizzas. My favorite is the Supreme. The 'chicken' pizza is very good also. Very tasty, great bases and friendly staff. The family supreme was $23.90. It is close to home, so when we want takeaway this is one of our go - to's

Pizzas are just ok. Go to Palm Cove and try pther food. There is no consistency with this Takeaway store. There has been a general deterioration in quality.

I recently ordered a pizza to take away and despite the first impressions of a restaurant desperately in need of a re-vamp and not a single customer in sight, I decided to give it a try. Admittedly it was very fast, just 10 minutes of waiting. Unfortunately the rest is down hill from here: from the frozen shop bought base... More

Always enjoy the pizzas from here, nice thin base with just the right amount of toppings and flavour. Only downside is the high price!

I'm a local and love Pizza. I ordered a med. sized Pizza 1/2 Hawaiian and 1/2 supreme and they charged and extra $2 for that, as it turns out the whole thing was flavourless. They forgot the pineapple on the Hawaiian and the rest totally lacked flavour . Go to the large pizza groups there pizzas are much better for... More

Having just arrived in the area we pulled into this roadside shopping centre for a quick lunch and were delighted to find this lovely little divey gem. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The food was good and satisfying. Highly recommend the risotto!

Risotto pollo di fungi was so very good. The service was excellent, kind, quick, and considerate of our time. (Upon our initial order we were advised that the wait would be 30 minutes) we were glad to have this information because we were on a sight seeing trip headed to our destination. To recap, the people were friendly and the... More
