If it's been a while since you've been here, you must go again!..And if you like to dine at one of the best places in town, this place is also a must.... I sat at the bar and I had the best seat in the house. The young, passionate pizza maker was phenomenal to watch. Every pizza was crafted and... More

I have been going to to Hot Rocks since they opened in the late 90's and never had a complaint. The door staff knows pretty well every customer by name since all the customers like myself live close and visit several times a year. There are always specials that are excellent, my favorite appetizer the coconut shrimp are awesome. I've... More

We celebrated a small birthday party in this restaurant. We have known this place for many years. It serves great food and you can “build-your-own” pizza. We love that. Every time we come for a dinner it surprises us with new type of food or pizza. I like a selection of local Ontario beers.

We have not popped in here for some time, but tried it again when deciding to go out on Valentine's Day, sort of at the last second. Even with late notice we were to book a table at a decent time. Maybe luck on our part as it did fill up soon after we arrived. In previous visits, there was... More

As usual, Great service and great food, Calamari was delicious and the traditional Pizza was a winner as always. Service is fast friendly and efficient and the aroma when you walk in the door is great.

Four for dinner, each had something very different. Lots of variety on the menu, plus wonderful pizza. Moderately priced, great wait staff, no disappointment here.

Busy on a Friday but we reserved our table online and didn't have to wait at all. Wait staff was friendly and efficient. Restaurant was full but you could still hear everyone at your table easily. Highly recommend the pizza!!

went here with a group of people from work. We were visiting the area for a business meeting and this little hide-a-way store-front in a plaza was recommended. I have to admit that I was skeptical when I first walked in, but the food really changed my minds... the oven fired pizza was fantastic. Try building your own with a... More

Been there a few times now as I live in the area and it is our go to place for a date night out. Food is always incredible no matter what we've ordered. The pizzas are amazing and probably their most popular option. Staff is always attentive and friendly, drinks are delicious. It can get very crowded and somewhat loud... More

Why is this place so busy? We had reservations for a Friday night and it was like sitting at Grand Central Station in rush hour. The staff was rushing around like the place was on fire. Ordered Mark West Pinot Noir and it came warm.....I mean not just slightly warm, but like the bottle was sitting near their pizza oven.... More
