ordered double peperoni with mushroom. I would hate to see the standard pepperoni as I had one thin slice of pepperoni on each of my 4 slices.. That's 4 slice of pepperoni(ultra thin) total. Disgusting pizza. mozzarella cheese was not even cooked and still uncooked on top. They claim to be the best pizzas in cairns. Disgusting

Excellent tasting pizza but the order has only been done right once. No ham and extra pepperoni ordered every time but they seem to have selected hearing with regards to the ham. Pepperoni is nice and spicy but need lots more.

Nothing flash about this place. But the service is good as is the food. The pizzas are fantastic and are just as you expect a traditional pizza to be. Pasta is also good and large servings. You can sit outside and there is a bottle shop next door. Not overly priced either. Good old fashioned food, service and price.

Okay so I phoned ahead to order a seafood pizza and also ask if their pizzas had any added food flavour enhances like MSG.... the person said they didn't know. Not a great start! Anyway I arrived promptly to pick up my pizza but the staff took a while to locate it. Once found, I went to pay... their website... More

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.
