“Great Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Pizza is amazing, best pizza outside italy….up selling of other food annoying.
Service can be arrogant & slow. You need to be very clear about what you want.

“Best pizza in Haberfield.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Haberfield has good pizza, actually, excellent pizza. As OzNana said, it has changed hands many times in the last 6 years. These new owners (2 months) have finally got it right. Traditional Italian pizza with the novelty of being sold in lengths. 1/2 or 1 meter. 1 meter between 4 adults was great. The pizza itself was delicious. Maybe the best around town now. Service was very Italian.
Food was good value. $4.50 for corkage per bottle is fair.
If you don't want to pay corkage, buy their alcohol. It is licensed and BYO.
Kids meals were delicious and generous too.
Authentic Italian pizza cooked by a Naples native pizza chef.
Authentic Italian food cooked by a Sardinian.
Owner from Naples
Wife from Sicily
Everyone tonight was genuinely Italian as was the pizza. Will definitely be back!
Also very roomy and air conditioned. Can sit 100 in the room. Easy for the elderly and prams.

“Could be so much better !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Went with a voucher - we were three instead of two and were happy to pay the additional but I have a real problem when entrees don't include pasta but when the entrees are half the size with a voucher is very disappointing /- bruschetta very over priced - pasta was very good but wasn't included in the voucher - this we didn't know until the menu was explained - also desert for two didn't include the Nutella pizza - one waiter said yes and the other said no - know your stuff guys otherwise don't use this as a promo - the pizza was very good - if I went back would be for the pizza

“GREAT FOOD/EXCELLENT SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Yesterday, 16th December three of us attended this wonderful restaurant. The quality food prepared by the chefs was first class. We had a pear/rocket salad, fish, pasta pesto, veal and panacotta - the panacotta was brilliant and plenfiful which makes a change for most Italian restaurants. I caught the eye of the Principal Chef to compliment him and he immediately came to our table and described his recipe for the panacotta - excellent service by the Chef and the several waiters who served us were most obliging in every respect. We noticed several of the excellent pizzas passing our table and they looked very impressive.

I would highly recomment this restaurant.

“Don't bother because they don't”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

Went with a voucher and had a fruit to misto which was nice and the pizza was great even though the service was bad but I knew it was new so I let it slide. I then booked a table for 6 for a Christmas lunch yesterday and was embarrassed. The manageress sat and ate lunch and left which is what she had done the time so she was a waste of money to the owners. The corkage is $4.50 per bottle which is too much for an inner west restaurant as was $10 for a small salad. The frito misto was missing the fried mozzarella it had the first time and it is on the menu without apology. The was an $18 special on a signboard saying pasta or pizza and soft drink. We asked the waiter if we could have coffee instead since we had all brought champagne for the Xmas lunch. The waiter said we could. As we ordered we found out 4 of us couldn't have the special because we were having dishes with seafood. The two who ordered the specials were told on bill payment that the coffee could not replace the soft drink and were charged for the coffee but didn't get the soft drink! I ordered the Nutella calzone with strawberries to share. It came only half filled with Nutella and half dry and no strawberries and still charged $18. These guys won't last cause if they don't work to please and keep customers coming back now, they clearly don't know how to run a restaurant .
