Best pizza in Hobart

We get pizza from here on Friday nights. Its the best. Very busy so phone ahead but well worth the wait. Happy staff as well. Nothing is too much trouble.

Maybe we got them on a bad night, but we didn't enjoy the pizza at all - gluggy, doughy bases and too much cheese. The prawns were microscopic. We only had takeaway so eating in might be better. We wouldn't recommend this place.

Hi Karen, So sorry you had a bad experience with our pizza. We endeavour to produce food that is of a very high standard, and it seems on this occasion we have let you down. No excused, but we have been training this week and perhaps that may where we have not met our usual benchmark. If its possible, we... More

We went here for dinner as somewhere we've often driven by and said 'we must try that'. Seated upstairs, was slightly disappointed that the ordered lemon, lime & bitters was a bottled pre-mix and not made at the bar. The Garlic pizza starter was fantastic with the crisp fresh crust I have come to expect from italian restauarants and disappeared... More

Three of us went here for dinner last night. Our table looked out onto the street where we could watch people go by as we talked. Service was friendly and fast. The pizzas and rosotto were delicious and big serves too. Topped off by a few glasses of wine and a citrus tart. Very happy, will go back.

Having read the excellent reviews, I was expecting more but having said that, our family was happy. Thick crust pizzas, sauces on the pastas were ok but my prawn and creamy sauce only had two small prawns, so I was a bit surprised. Not cheap but freshly made and worth the wait for the meal to arrive.

So sorry that you were disappointed with your Prawn Pasta. We use a standard number of Australian King Prawns in our pasta dishes so I am surprised to hear that you only found 2 small prawns in your dish. Please bring it to the attention of your waiting staff if there is a problem with your meal so we can... More

A definite must if you are wanting great pizza or pasta. Situated in the popular suburb of West Hobart. It is small so I would recommend booking. Great for takeaway too.

A late booking but we are in. Downstairs tucked under the stairs. Not good but our fault, we should have booked earlier. Then shrieking kids on the next table confirmed that we were in the wrong place. I can;t quite remember if I enjoyed the food or not because eating where we were in the restaurant, was too stressful.

The food here is great, but eating in is limited due to the tiny size. However, it just might be the best take away pizza you will ever eat.

It is hard to pick between Paesano and Da Angelo's which has the better pizza. Let's call it a draw. The service is fantastic the food is great and the prices are very reasonable. Never had a bad meal or bad experience and will happily return or recommend
