A hard day moving house and decided we wanted Pizza, so drove up to The Junction hoping La Pizzeria would still be open. Luckily for us it was. The pizzas were absolutely yummy. The kids had a 9 inch Pepperoni, the wife a 9 inch Meat Lovers and I polished off the 12 inch Bacon, Anchovies and Jalapeño. Bellissimo! Excellent,... More

Had a vegetable pizza and it was just like a pizza should be with a nice crust from baking in a stone oven.

Felt the pizzas were affordable. Perfect place for our 2 familes to eat after we.moved.some tables around. Would be happy to eat here again but have... More

This is the second time we have been here. The pizzas are really yummy. Very tasty and the bases are so fresh. The only downside was that we had to wait an hour to get our pizzas. It was a busy Saturday night so we understand, but it was a bit of a bummer. Pizza's were worth waiting for though.... More

Decent pizza and friendly staff. Decor was a bit dated/old but overall good food, would recommend as a top notch take away option.
