“The best pizza I've ever eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Where do I begin? The owner, Desmond, has a great sense of humour! His staff are always busy and know exactly what to do because of their great management and I don't think I've ever tasted pizzas so good!
After popping into Desmond's old place and enjoying a coffee, a friend treated myself and my fiance to a pizza at Desmond's.
The dough is so fresh having been seen to be made previously that day and in the evening, it was cooked to perfection with a multitude of sauces and toppings. The chicken I had as a topping was juicy and full of flavour - nothing like the rubbish you get on a cheap takeaway pizza!
I would thoroughly recommend Desmond's to any visitors or locals of Lowestoft in the day or on Friday and Saturday evenings for pizza!

“Fan-bloody-tastic homemade pizza :)!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

If you love real pizza you'll love Desmonds. The pizza's are homemade then you get to design your own pizza experience....choice of sauce ie. barbecue sauce, jerk sauce, chilli, garlic.....then ALL the toppings you could wish for! So if you love pizza get down to Desmonds :)

“Desmond's - What a great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

What an excelent evening our family and best friends had. The food was excellent the decore was fantastic and the host, Desmond and his staff, were friendly, attentive and very entertaining. The pizzas were exquisite and sooooo tasty and because you could choose every base & topping even the fussiest of our group got what she wanted without the normal palava. We were also pleased & delighted that Desmond spent several hours moving furniture to get our party of 7 in, as when we visited earlier he was fully booked, thank you very much.
