For a restaurant with pizza in its name, you would think there would be a large selection and quality pizza. There was many selections of other food (read "up sell") but the pizza menu was very ordinary. The pizza itself was undercooked and tasteless. I think they need some supervision or they need to change their focus.

Pizzas came out too fast so were doughy in the middle. They can accommodate large groups in the Coconut Mall and the front of the house was splendid. Perhaps the pressure is getting to the kitchen. Ingredients were all of high quality but soggy pizza, not so good.

Had a quick dinner prior to a show at Artist Theatre next door. Food was very good and service was outstanding. Appetizers were excellent and pizzas and flat beds were outstanding.

The food and service are always good and it is a dependable and consistent place for a meal. But we went into shock when we received our bill and were charged 15.50 for one glass of white wine. That is really outrageous.

We stopped in for the first time in a long time. Seated right away, and as we sat, the waiter looked at the hostess and said "Both of them?" referring to us and the other table that evidently had just been seated right behind us. She said yes, confirming he'd been double sat, and then the waiter promptly turned around... More

Had the half portion of the Chinese salad which was huge enough for 2-3 people. All ingredients including the crispy noodle were fresh and dressing was perfect and just the right amount. We ordered the 4 mushroom white pizza with white cheese and hand tossed for a thicker back crust. Generous with the mushrooms and crust cooked perfectly. They also... More

Back again to this place for the Chinese Salad which is to die for and very large so can be shared between everyone at the table. The pizza is great too but we love the salads that are offer here! Check them out

We were here for a casual dinner - salad and pizza, with wine. As a group, we had both a thin crust and a gluten free pizza. The Caesar salad was just a huge amount of lettuce and dressing - nothing else - so somewhat disappointing. The pizza was very good - ours a vegetarian - with lots of toppings,... More

We stopped by for a quick dinner. This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised. We shared a white cheese flatbread and salad which were both yummy! We plan on returning to order the exact same thing. And the service was quick, attentive and super pleasant. Our new favorite place!!

Thank Idonnaknow
