Yummy in a great location

Great range of delicious food fired pizzas. Enjoyed the tandoori chicken and lamb shank pizzas (two pizzas not one!). It's also a pretty trendy location with a great ambience and unobtrusive service.

What a hidden treasure! It was hidden up a little alley, but right in the centre of town. We wished we could eat everything on the menu as it all sounded great. We decided on the pork pizza with a nice wine and wanted to stay longer. Lovely atmosphere, great, great food and good wines ... could life be any... More

Myself and 9 others went out to tea here for a very special occasion and spent $110 for 5 very small, thin pizzas with minimal toppings (GOURMET I think they call them) and when we asked about a deal for more food the staff and management couldn't have cared less. Very disappointed and we left and had another meal elsewhere.

Have tried almost all of the pizzas on the menu and they are all really nice. They also have some good beers on tap that are not your usual selection. Great place to relax.

Went in a large group with the deal being $25 for all you can eat. The table consisted of families at one end and younger people at the other. Majority of pizzas ended up at the younger end and when we asked for pizzas at our end the waitress was was incredibly rude and threw the pizzas on the table.... More

In a group of 30, being the only person of non-Anglo heritage, I thought it beyond coincidence that I should wait 50 minutes for a single pizza, which arrived after 5 queries to staff and after the other 29 in my party had long received and finished their meals. At each query I was mocked or the staff simply walked... More

large range great pizzas cooked in a traditional way with an excellent atmosphere, especially for Bathurst which struggles still with becoming a foodie town... i'm sure that might offend some, but the more places that open like this the better

We were in Bathurst for the night and reading Trip Advisor thought we would give this place a go. The pizza was one of the best ever (and we have tasted a few). Salad nice. Wine good. Ambience great. We sat inside in the bar area and then moved out to the courtyard to enjoy the live music and finish... More
