“Excellent pizza in Noga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

Stopped in for a late-ish bite around 22:30 on a Thursday night. Had the special pizza for the night, fig and goats cheese (no tom sauce). One word, WOW! The combination of flavours was fantastic, the cheese wasn't too strong, the figs were thinly sliced and laced with some chilli oil and arugula on top. The crust was one of the best I have ever had (and I have spent a fair bit of time in Italy). Will have to try one with sauce to see how that is next time. The menu is a few starters and pizza and pasta, and they had a steak on daily special. Nice atmosphere in an up and coming corner of jaffa and close to the sea. A real gem(ma). Sure to return and would recommend.

“Thin crust pizza in Noga neighborhood”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Always in search of a great thin-crust pizza, we went on the recommendation of friends. Very nice atmosphere, friendly wait staff and excellent salads did not overcome our disappointment with the pizza and lamb ragu. The condiments helped jazz up an otherwise tasteless margharita pizza. The ragu was lacking flavor. Perhaps if we had chosen other dishes from the menu, we might have felt differently. I will be happy to hear that others had a better experience. It is also wartime...
