Lunchtime Pizza

A good place to stop if you are shopping at Mirdif City Centre and feel like a pizza! We ordered the Sfilatino which were delicious, maybe a little too big for lunchtime but we were hungry! Complimentary warm breads and spreads on our table were very good, the lime soda which they make is... read more

Abut a minute after the server had taken our order I realised I had ordered the wrong main meal. I called a different server over to explain that I... More

I used to like going to this place when it first opened. However, after the Chef has been changed, the food taste has been declined to below average. The service is not bad. I am no longer visiting this place after a couple attempts that the food might have been improved.

The menu has good options but the staff is rude, not friendly and look like that they don't want to attend you. In our case, the starter arrived after we ate the main course..and some plates doesn't looks like in the menu.

The restaurant looks like a good one from the outside. But we realised that it was not very so while dining. Staff were not plenty in numbers. Very hard to come by. The food was poor to average. The pizza was of interesting shape but of not very good taste. The chicken in the other main course was raw. It... More

I tried the dish called it was horrible. The past was too undercooked and the meat balls were rock-hard. When the staff asked and I told them my opinion they basically said "OK thanks" horrible service.
