“Even better than last visit”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

I have read a few reviews about this place and the waiting time and the fact you cant make bookings way in adavance (although you can usually book same day).
Basically the Pizza's are so good that everyone wants to eat there - its only a small restaurant with one excellent chef. You have to be prepared to wait.
If you are not prepared to wait then go to one of the other restaturants in town (the Spinne does Pizza's - so do one or two others).
We visited on a cold and wet night in OCtober, the place was still full despite the fact that it was between seasons.
If you are prepared to wait you will have the best pizza you have ever tasted. Simples!

“Ridiculously Good Pizza”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Being from Chicago, I take pizza seriously. This was an all-time favorite. The pizzas are thin crusted with fresh toppings. The salads are terrific. A nice selection of wines was a plus. The atmosphere is cozy.

“Good potential”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Didn't actually eat here but we should have done. Very friendly (helped us with some telephone numbers) and the pizzas looked great.

“"Delicious pizza!"”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

The pizza was delicious! We watched the owner as he worked quickly to make the pizzas never pausing. The place is quite popular so the wait is long but well worth it.

“very poor service”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Thought this place looked nice, and read the good reviews on here.

I Was very dissappointed in the end with the service in there.

Waited over an hour for the pizza when I complained that it had taken so long.

I was told that this was normal as the pizzas were made at the restaurant and it takes an hour to make a pizza?????

The service was very very poor and the attitude was arrogant.

The attitude was probably the worst of it really they never once appologised or approached table to say there were delays!

This pizzeria has by the looks of it only 2 small ovens so no suprise they are slow when it gets a bit busy.

The Pizza cost over 20 euros and they only sell pizza.
The poor service was widespread in the restaurant with people leaving rather than waiting and others complaining about length of wait.

So if you are not that hungry and want a expensive laugh go and watch these clowns try and run and pizzeria!!

Otherwise do like I did the next time and go across the street to an Italian run pizzeria and get top quality pizza cooked and served in 10 minutes
without crappy service and attitude and cheaper to boot.

Msg for Onkel Toms Hutte people, Sorry! but dont treat youre customer's as idiots that are just there to throw money at you!!
