The only thing is that they serve only vegeterian dishes here. We too were skeptical, but it's worth it. Yummy pizzas, baked in wood fired ovens!

A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Wide selection of sandwiches and Italian cuisine for the western palate. Reasonably priced and swift service made this a remarkable experience

Pizzas and Italian selection here is quite good. wood fire pizza comes with your selection of toppings and is quite tasty. Soups, Pasta and burgers are also very good. It takes a while to get your order, but it comes fresh. Service is not that great as they mainly tend to give more attention to the foreigners.

Not only because its vegetarian but offers great choice and taste in food. Also the ambience is good and trendy and somehow you like to spend time with your friends and family here. Only issue is that it always seems under staffed and that causes delay in serving.

If you are a Pizza, Burger, Sandwitch fan there is no better place than this. We love to travel 120 Kms from Mysore just to savour their wood fired specialities. Their yummy burgers and sandwitch he's are a real treat. Their wood fired pizzas are scrumptious and you should be crazy to miss them. Their Pastas and Salads are equally... More

The restaurant is in the main market and easily reachable....we went at around 4pm and the place was empty...we ordered veg pizzas which arrived quickly and though they were not great, they were reasonably good for what one expects in a hill station...the milk shakes were also good....the layout and ambience of the place is nice

The restaurant has very good options. Since its a vegetarian restaurant, non-vegetarian have no business here.. but everything on the menu is tasty and the food is very good. Nice place to drop by once.
