My friend and I went here and ordered a couple pizzas and their bread pudding. Everything was so delicious. The staff were really friendly, the service was prompt and the prices were reasonable.

Hostess said wait would be around 15 min. Thats why we didn't go for a drink near by. We waited... More

This place is just fantastic. I had a grilled cheese with potato leek soup for lunch for $11!!!! Honestly, it might be the best grilled cheese I ever had, a mix of brie, gouda and pesto served with an incredible tomato relish. I thought the pesto would be overpowering, but it was fragrant and fresh and really melded with the... More

Fabulous wood oven pizzas, and lots of specials on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesday, look out for the $9 Steins and $10 pizza special what a bargain!

They basically only serve pizza in the evening. Atmosphere was lively, service excellent, mixed review from the party on the pizza. Everyone agreed pizza was decent, but no one thought exceptional. The various combinations of toppings made it interesting.

We ordered all the food showcased on the show "You Gotta Eat Here" and it was as good as it looked on TV! we had pizza, wings, and mac 'n cheese. Especially the wings and the mac/cheese were outstanding! The beer was very affordable and the sangria was one of the better i've had. All in all we ate too... More

Nice restaurant with good atmosphere. We enjoyed our meal on the back patio. There are eight local (Canada) beers on tap and several more in bottles. Our pizza was spicy but good. However, I just don't get putting honey on a pizza.

We found this place from the "You Gotta Eat Here!" Website. Pizzas were delicious. Kids had the kids pepperoni pizza and the Pork Belly Macaroni and cheese which was amazing! Our son couldn't get enough of dipping his pizza into the honey and rosemary oil combination. We split the Hawaiian Pizza (with pulled pork) and the Beef Dip. So delicious!... More

I miss their food already. Pizza is reaaally good, unique style and good combination. I just hope you'll extend your awesome pizza over here at Vancouver. I'll definitely go to this place again when in Banff.
