“Charming casual local dining”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Try their chocolate cake as it absolutely delicious! Best that I have eaten in a long time. If you like casual dining with some interesting pizza toppings, you will probably enjoy this place. Nice staff and if you are lucky to get a window table, it has a nice view over a small river/lake. Be aware that reservations are not accepted on weekends and never for less than 8 people.

“Great Atmosphere and Good Food”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

My husband and I came across this restaurant while driving through Ayr. We had never eaten here before, but couldn't resist to stop for some lunch. I really liked the decor of the restaurant (including the bathroom)- it was clean, stylish and not too over the top (San Francisco theme). We ordered the Italian Stallion pizza and eagerly awaited the stone baked pizza. When it arrived it looked great, but was obviously not stone baked - it came on a very hot pizza pan. The pizza was good and I was happy paying the price, however we both thought the crust was pretty well a replica of Pizza Hut's crust - it looked and tasted just like it. We were disappointed that this restaurant was falsely advertising their product (as far as we could tell), tarnishing the experience we had here.

“Mediocre at best”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We've eaten here several times hoping things would improve. The food is uninspiring and tastes assembled rather than prepared from fresh. Pricing is illogical. Panzerottis come with several regular items (3 or 4) but if you only order your panzo with one premium item and no other toppings, you still get charged extra for the premium item? Ridiculous. I've also never been to a restaurant that claimed to have a wood fired oven but the oven isn't visible to patrons? Forgive me being skeptical but the pizza is much too average bordering on Delicioso to be from a wood oven. When other nearby towns such as St George can pull off first rate, home cooked, fresh Italian food in a beautiful setting, why should the offerings in Ayr be anything less?

“Cooked Fresh?”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Overpriced assembly line food. Stone oven pizza? Most pizza should be cooked on a stone but these folks put a misleading wood burning oven on their promotional material. Try rolling your own crusts for the prices charged...

Nice decorating in bathrooms - that's it.

Hope Ayr gets another restaurant.
