“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

The top rating on tripadvisor well deserved. We sat on a bench in the window. The pizza was excellent- crispy base, good quality toppings, esp ham and prosciutto. They were v nice to my messy kids. The atmosphere was fun. There were real Italians working there. They advised us to run across to the beach hotel bottle o and buy beer then they stored the beer in their fridge to keep it cool- awesome.

It is a tiny place so be prepared for a cosy dinner if ur eating in. If weather was nice wld be cool to get a takeaway pizza and eat by the beach.

“Excellento!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Really great pizza and calzone (unbelievable) - not usually a pizza fan but this was the goods. On the pricey side but totally worth it. Service just as good - fun, quick, switched on.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

This pizza really compares favourably with the pizza you get in Rome or sicily. The base thin and crispy with delicious fresh buffalo mozzarella

A must in byron bay
