We dropped into into Lygon Street after visiting a friend. We walked up and down the street looking for a place to have a wood fired pizza. Some of the empty restaurants were offering 4 free alcoholic drinks and a free garlic bread. I know that in today's world nothing is for free.We pay for it some way. The fact... More

Loved it. Our meals were perfect. We had pizza and pasta and could not fault it. In fact it was so good we returned the next night for another round and they did not disappoint us.

This restaurant's name came up with a lot of expectations because of the boasting from my friends and I have to say it was a great first experience of a wood fired pizza. Definitely a must try!!
