Great Food & Service

Had dinner here the other night with 9 rally technicians. We didn't call ahead of time, as we we did not know what time they would be done work. We were promptly greeted, and a table was set up for us in a very reasonable amount of time. It was a Wednesday night, so not packed, but by no means... read more

Took my parents to red pizzeria as I have always had such a great experience myself and they were just as satisfied as we always are. Food is amazing and plated beautifully, staff are great and efficient even when the restaurant is clearly busy, overall friendly, great place to go for not only pizza but a gourmet meal. Huge amount... More

Our teenage daughter is a regular here for her friends birthdays and persuaded us to try it. I'm glad we did! Pizzas are delish and the desserts are yummy and beautifully presented. I had the cheesecake which I thoroughly enjoyed. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. We'll be back!

They say you only get ONE IMPRESSION for a reason and this place is an epic fail! We stood at the bar waiting to be seated/acknowledged. What does the bar guy do (young guy with blonde hair) he asks to serve the people behind us! Ignores us once they are gone and stands there drying glasses. Then unable to bear... More

This reviewer has based their review on an experience they allegedly had 8 months previous - not recently as is lead to believe by the posting date. Management feels this is an unfair review and should not be recognized as it does not support our current customer service standards. More

We were very impressed by the menu selection. Took us awhile to decide what we wanted as everything sounded great. After ordering our meals they arrived very quickly, hot and fresh. #VeryTastyPizzas! The atmosphere is great with both indoor and outdoor sheltered dinning. Our only upset was the very inattentive waitress! The waitress did not ask if we wanted any... More

Thank you June, we appreciate your feedback and agree that our restaurant may not be the best option for families with under 5's particularly on our busy weekend nights. We are sorry that you had an extended wait time on desserts - that seems out of the ordinary - but with large group orders and our fresh baked desserts being... More

Had a nice meal here with family and friends. Service staff were attentive and friendly. The pizzas were nice, small size ok for 1 person, the larger size too big for 1 but we were able to take extra away in the box provided. Was a bit dark in the booth we ate in, hard to see food and each... More

Thanks for your review which lists lots of valuable praise - although you only gave us a 3/5...was their something we could have done better? We don't have linen napkins or tablecloths so you are right we are a 'casual restaurant' although just because we don't shouldn't lower our rating with guests as we like to exceed expectations...try our mains...

The place was buzzing with activity and had great ambience - the metre long pizza's were great! and good value for a large party - Book ahead though as this place gets insane numbers through the doors.

Great place for all ages. Especially good for crowds with the meter long pizza! Booking is a must or you will miss out. My grand kids like this place for pizza but they do lovely chicken pastas and steaks etc
