“Great Real Italian Restaurant Not Frequented By Tourists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I've now been here twice and the food has great each time. This has to be the best pizza in the area. I've also had the veal parmigiana and a few of the appetizers and I would give each 4 stars. Don't expect a big restaurant and this place can be hard to find. Well worth it.

“Better be looking, or you'll miss it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Great ambience...little hole in the wall.

I had the half pepperoni pizza, it was great. Served in a rectangular pan, thin crust...good stuff.

Would definitely go back.

“Super pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We went on Friday evening, arrived at 8pm. Note: Be brave, an go up the stairs. this looks like it will be terrible, but trust TA. Restaurant was almost empty. Hmm, now we are worried. But friendly staff take us to a table and we order. Starter salad enough for 4 to share. It's just huge. Then pizza. Half is plenty big enough for one person with a decent appetite. An it's excellent. Huge amount of topping. Crispy around the edge. Just great.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Love the pizza here, really thin crust with quality ingredients (toppings). The service was good, even though I think they came over every 2 minutes to ask us if all was ok. Only negative point is that it is a very dark ambiance, not much light gets into there.. however will go back !
