Once a week I crave a Manuela's pizza, the crusts are super thin and all the toppings are delicious. On the other hand, the decor is quite confusing (in a bad way), and service is dreadful at best. However they know they have great pizza so don't really care.... I used to also enjoy the mushroom ravioli's, however the dish... More

Where most of the reviews says it has best Pizza in Nigeria, which is true, but none mentions that it is simply the best for Italian food. The extended items on menu are awesome. I tried Pasta and Risotto and are equally good. They import most of the ingredients from Italian which makes this place better and special. The staff... More

Totally loved my time here, the pizza, the wine, the ham and the ice cream desserts. Plus its all secluded and has a resort/getaway feel to it. Service is awesome too. And if you want that italian expresso to top things off. You got urself some

The pizza here is just superb, and if they delivered to Ikoyi in the evenings I'd order all the time! The drinks are expensive, and there isn't much atmosphere, but I am still a regular visitor just for the pizza.

I used to come here weekly, no, wait - twice a week. Favourite pizza joint in Lagos - by far. I went back last week during another business trip to Lagos. I was happy to find the place hasn't changed a bit. The taste and food quality remains the same - so does everything else though :-) The pizza is... More

Trust me, there's no place in Lagos that serves a tastier pizza than MR. The place is actually kind of a Motel and they have this restaurant inside the premises.. The restaurant theme is classic (if that's the right word) and Calm.. You would definitely enjoy having freshly tasty yummy pizza in there..

I am saying hidden because it is literally hidden. you won't be able to locate it if your driver never been there. No sign board and it is on secondary street. But its pizza is lovely. Ambience is good.

Wow this place is a breathe of fresh air especially to those who know Lagos, Nigeria. The road that leads to this restaurant you start thinking 'oh my God here we go again' but the moment you drive in you see this beautiful beautiful garden with fern and cycards, nice drive way. Great ambience, very friendly and efficient staff, place... More
