“Pizzas the size of hubcaps”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Fantastic. We were lucky to get a table outside (around 9 pm). Do not eat anything at all, not even breakfast, if you want to make it through the gigantic pizza with which you will be confronted. I had " Kidnap Me", tomato, fancier cheese than mozzarella (sorry, can't be more specific, something beginning with "s", I think), Gorgonzola and tuna. I managed about 5/6ths of it. My wife could only eat 1/2 of hers. The staff looked a bit hurt at this. You can get a "baby" version, they explained. Anyway, two of those and 2 bottles of Perroni, 27 euros....get down there pronto!

No pretensions, excellent pizzas, authentic and original pizza makers. Love them - if only they were local.

“An experience!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Firstly WOW the pizzas are massive!!!! Secondly, they are delicious!!! Great value and really nice house wine too.
These guys are ridiculously busy with takeaway orders (pretty much all locals, which we think says something about how great they are!)
The service was second to none- the lovely girl that took care of us, as well as every other table and every takeaway order was such a sweetheart- her English and French (and Italian!!) was great, nothing was a trouble and everything was done with a huge stress-free smile! We adored her!

“Huge Pizza's”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Had seen this place earlier in the week. So decided to give it a go as fancied a Pizza. There are 58 Pizzas on the menu, so if you cannot find one you like.......... I love flat crispy Pizza's and my selection did not disappoint, great topping. No advance booking turn up & grab a table or hang around for a free one. Menu's in French, German & English (& of course Italian). Friendly & attentive staff. Used by the locals. They do not accept credit cards, but with the low prices who would not pay cash. My bill came to 12 Euros & that was with a bottle of local beer.

“Superb pizzas and ridiculously good value”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We noticed this place was packed last night so figured it must be good and gave it a whirl tonight. It's a popular takeaway pizza place but they have a few tables inside and some outside too.

I think it had just opened at 7pm and it was already packed with locals dropping in to collect stacks of takeaway pizzas on a Sunday night. There were just 2 guys taking orders and churning the pizzas out in no time.

The pizzas come in small and large sizes with the small being about 30cm and the large being about 45cm at a guess - yes massive. We opted for the small and because the bases are super thin, they are really very light and so the large size is totally manageable for 1 person and in fact most people were getting the large size.

The base is ridiculously good - so thin, crispy and light that it just melts in your mouth. The tomato sauce is also very light and at first it seemed a little too under-flavoured, but by the end of the pizza, you could tell that it was absolutely perfect for this style of pizza.

With a half bottle of red wine, 2 beers, 2 bottles of water and 4 small pizzas, our bill only came to 31 euros! That is crazy good value.

I can't rate this place highly enough for their pizzas - absolutely sensational.
