Friendly staff. Fast Sevice. Crispy base. However pizza was tasteless as only very bland, scarce scrapings of sauce on the base.

Arrived at Clifton Beach late afternoon We were hungry when we spotted the Pizza restaurant at the Village shopping centre. I had the best seafood salad I have ever tasted the salad was fresh and crisp a good variety of seafood ....scallops, prawns, mussels some kind of lovely white fish very tasty indeed. The service was very accommodating and friendly.

Arrived today on holiday and experienced the worst customer service ever. We've travelled the world with our family and this place takes the cake. I've never ever come across someone so rude and unhelpful. He told our kids to hurry up and pick what they want! There was no-one else in the restaurant so don't know what his problem was... More
