They serve some great pizza that is fresh and tastes great. Hidden in the heart of Colombo this restaurant is located inside the Sri Lanka Tennis Association and Lifestyle gym building. Limited seating inside but it's a lovely place to dine outside on a nice cool evening

Would recommend anyone looking... More
