I am regular, why? Because it's the best pizza in town. BUT, it's the most expensive place in Nigeria for what you get, they even would charge you for the napkin if they could. My last experience, I look at the sandwiches menu, where pictures look exquisite and state of the art. A typical sandwich costs 3000 naira, but what... More

I went to Manuela's residence with a few friends and was instantly charmed by it's cosy atmosphere and artistic decor. We sat in the pizza parlor and waited over half an hour for a waiter to acknowledge our presence. After an overpriced bottle of cheap red wine and a mediocre lasagne we were presented with a bill. We brought out... More

I went for dinner to this restautant with 2 friends this evening (we are all Nigerian). The decor and artwork was very nice. The food was mediocre at best (although I have heard that they have good pizzas, avoid the pasta dishes). However this was the most terrible service I have ever encountered in Nigeria. It took over 1.5 hours... More

Amazing pizza! Actually one of the best in Lagos. But the prices are outrageous! They even charge you for the condiments that go along with the bread before the meal. These are usually free. I would give this restaurant a 5 star because of its great pizza, but I will limit my vote to a 3. Perhaps the managers/owners will... More

MR is an aesthetically pleasing place with nice staff too. I suggest going there on Saturday nights, there's a pretty nice crowd and food specials. However the pizza (and most of the menu) is overpriced. An average of 4000 (26u$d) per box we got pizza with extremely sparce toppings, keep in mind that the pizza crust is extremely thin. I...

Ate here for the first time over the weekend and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. We sat on the pizza restaurant side as that side was preferred by my friend but we ordered pasta. It is N1000 to change the pasta to Fettuccine which I prefer. The flavors where good and the pasta was not overcooked. I will go back and... More
