“Fabulous food and very friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Recently moved in nearby and were excited to try this place having seen some reviews. First tried on a Saturday lunchtime, then a Monday evening, but it's only open evenings Weds-Sun inclusive. It's cash only, and unlicensed with £1 corkage per bottle/can. Essentially a takeaway with 4 tables too eat in if you wish. Good variety of pizzas on menu £7-10 each. One homemade pasta of the day. Several nice pudding choices. The staff are really welcoming, the pizzas are define, and I expect to become a regular visitors, plus introducing it to friends and family.

“Best pizza you will taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The atmosphere when you walk in this tiny shop is fab. A few little tables you can sit at to eat in. The most dominate feature is the huge wood burning old style pizza oven which produces the most delicious pizza I have tasted for years. Staff are very friendly and you get a warm welcome. Definitely recommend a visit

“Amazing pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I was stunned by the taste of the pizza they make. This is, in my opinion, pizza at its best. This place is a very good reason to visit Bournemouth. The place is very small and open only at evenings so it might be for the best to make a reservation beforehand. Great people, great pizza! Remember to bribg your own drinks, they don't sell alcohol.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

The best pizza we have ever had...fact. This is a very basic takeaway pizza place with four tables. The pizzas are made in a huge wood burning stove and it was being run by real Italians ! I phoned to order ours and I was glad because it was really busy. It is also a byo, so they only sell cold drinks however some people had bought their own wine and beer etc... Really was such a lush pizza.
