There is a nice list implying that there view of pizza is correct. It is. We started with the barratta with tomato and basil with bread sticks. Followed with a bresolla and rocket salad. Both excellent. The pizza of the day was well made with excellent toppings. A slice of Italy with a... read more

There is a nice list implying that there view of pizza is correct. It is. We started with the barratta with tomato and basil with bread sticks. Followed with a bresolla and rocket salad. Both excellent. The pizza of the day was well made with excellent toppings. A slice of Italy with a young crew.

The pizza here is always tasty, it comes quickly and there is always something good on the specials. But I have to confess to a feeling of gnawing dread whenever I walk in the door. The problem is that the place is always full to the brim. There is often a sense of mild panic emanating from the diners and... More

Great pizza, buffalo mozzarella & Jamon Serrano. A little bit squishy seating arrangement, but happy to put up with it for the food.

This is a great family restaurant with takeaway that matches the onsite service. Real Italian pizzas made by passionate Italians. Something new to try every week and you are never left disappointed !

This is by far the best and cheapest pizzas you can have in Balmain ,the salad is so fresh as if it was just picked from the garden when this first opened about 8? years ago it made all the others lift their game.

A great little Italian pizza cafe with a genuine feeling of Italy and quality engriedients from the tomatoe base to the fillings, they have a sign which says they do not do ham and pineapple.

Thin, crispy and delicious. Not too many toppings. Quick service. Bookings a must. Hot and cramped in summer esp if you have a big table. Some desserts available as well as gelati. Go early to avoid the crowds. Please don't take a pram if you have little ones.

A little restaurant tucked away on the edge of Balmain near the docks. We could only get an early booking so we shared a packed restaurant with lots of families. Not withstanding the crowd, we were seated quickly, provided with good advice from our serving person and were eating within 10 minutes of ordering. Its BYO so we purchased a... More

Is this really the third best restaurant in the Balmain area? The bases of our pizzas were nice and crisp and very acceptable but the toppings were runny and slightly under cooked. This was not the experience we were expecting based on the reports we had read. The service was quick, attentive and professional but the noise level is very... More
