Nice restaurant with very friendly and helpful staff, they offer Italian style Woodford oven pizza. It was tasty but I thought it could be a bit more crusty like it is in Italy. The calamari fritti were really great and delicious. The seating and atmosphere is really nice. Maybe come again but then try something else than pizza .

We have been regulars at this restaurant since they opened. The pizzas are very flavourful, clearly made with fresh, good-quality ingredients. The location is very convenient. We also like the all-white colour scheme, which is distinctive and stylish.

I took my wife for dinner here as our date night, also visiting with a couple friends of ours. We drove up from Red Deer and were looking forward to a nice visit. For starters the server was very attentive and took care of us right away. I recommend a reservation if you are visiting on a Friday or Saturday... More

Pizza Good Enough For A Return Visit, but there were issues. The table was too small. There wasn't enough room on the table for two glasses, a bottle, one pizza, and bruschetta. Utensils were provided to cut the pizza, but call me a Philistine, I would have preferred it cut prior to table delivery Slicing the pizza was cumbersome. And... More

After seeing how packed this place has been and knowing how much we enjoy good authentic pizza we had to give it a try. After visiting I think it's possible we have too high of standards in some realms. They were quick to remake our pizza when it was drenched to the point that the whole crust was a soggy,... More

Nice restaurant, modern décor. Went on a Saturday at lunchtime and it was not busy. The pizzas were good pretty close to authentic pizza napoletana, fresh ingredients. Good choice of wines by the glass.

This restaurant really prides itself on its napoletana-style pizza (cooked very high which creates a slightly charred bottom with a doughy inside), which you're either going to love, hate or say "meh". We were in the latter group. The toppings were tasty, the dough was bit odd but maybe you get used to that. We had a steamed mussel appetizer... More
