Stopped by for a quick Sunday lunch. Place wasn’t as busy as dinner time and we were able to grab a table without a booking. Pizzas are great. Just enough cheese and fresh toppings to make a light lunch, not too greasy. Didn’t try any...More

The pizzas are fabulous. But sadly this time the waiters were rude and dismissive. We may return but hopefully next time there has been a change of waiters. They are certainly not suited to the restaurant business. The are more interested in chatting amongst themselves...More
