Didn't think we could manage a whole pizza each but these were so light and delicious, it was easy! The antipasto platter at the next table looked fabulous though - maybe next time! Great service and atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We have been here a few times over the years. Last week we had a pizza there and it was oily and the topping slid off the base. No disrespect but there was a lot of new Asian staff and we felt the pizza was no where near as good as in the past. The waitresses were lovely as usual,... More

A good change from fish and chips to take away, the pizzas were hot and tasty and I didn't have to wait long, for my takeaway order. Plenty of choice of toppings and there also seemed to be a selection of pastas available and a good wine list for those eating in the restaurant. Upstairs, so a lovely view out... More

When we walked the street of Palm Cove, we passed over this place. It doesn't look much from the street. It's on the second floor of a shopping area which was pretty empty at night with the shops closed. Fortunately, people traveling with us recommended it to us and mentioned the magic words "Nutella Calzone" We had to go just... More

My family and I dined here twice in the past week. The pizza's were fantastic, the rosemary bread starter devine and the service exceptional. I cannot recommend this place or the Pompei pizza more highly.
