A Taste of Italy sells the worst and most expensive pizzas I have every eaten. the toppings are sparse and the base is terrible. This Take-away really needs to lift its game. Many locals who use to go there no longer bother because of the terrible food.

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

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.

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!
