I believe it was Mel Gibson as Martin Riggs who said :What did one shepherd say to the other shepherd? Let's get the flock out of here! This was not the case on this visit. As suggested I ordered the lethal weapon pizza and was thoroughly pleased. The food was great the atmosphere was good and the staff were friendly.... More

We decided to order a takeaway delivery from The Pizza Cafe, the delivery person was very courteous and polite, it also got delivered on time, but (yes there is a but) the pizza bases were so soggy that you could not pick up the pizza with your hands and when trying the toppings would start sliding off.

The day was Friday the 13th, for those who don’t know the unluckiest day of the year. I was unsure whether to even leave the safety of my home. But by lunch time the temptation of nourishment forced me out in to the wild. For safety in numbers I went with two co-workers. On our exploration for food we came... More

I booked a table for 14 people recently and we received the standard great value and service for the meal. The only thing that lets this place down are the noise levels. I could hardly hear what my friends were saying and could only really speak to the people opposite and immediately next to me. Which was frustrating as I... More

Puzzled and surprised by your comment Percy, we sell hundreds of pizzas everyday and greasy is not a comment we have ever heard. We use the finest dairy cheese and cook our pizzas quickly in a very hot oven and have used the same recipe for 30 years. Maybe you have got us mixed up with another establishment as you... More

Unexpectedly we were in Newton Abbot waiting for our car to be fixed. Decided to visit the Pizza Cafe as had noticed it a few weeks before and looked popular and cosy. Delicious pizza's and an attentive service made it a delightful place to while away the time. The honeycomb ice cream and chocolate brownie one we had to follow... More

I have visited The Pizza Cafe about 4 times now and it's never failed to impress. The service is very well timed and friendly. The food is always fresh and tasty. Also the pricing is just about right. I would definitely advise going to the pizza cafe to try it out, I would also advise booking in advance.

I have been visiting the Pizza Cafe for many years and always loved it. However upon my recent visit we wanted a selection of sides to share. Unfortunately some of the food appears to have come from a freezer section of a low quality supplier as it was tasteless and greasy not at all like my previous experiences. I have... More

Even though this is a small local pizzaria they can teach the other pizza restaurants a lesson. Good quality and good prices.

We have been enjoying our regular Saturday nights out here for the past 25 years, we have tried all other eating establishments in walking distance of our Newton home and keep coming back to this one as its the best. Service is always professional but in a lovely relaxed manner. Food is ALWAYS delicious, red wines are very nice and... More
