“Low price, low quality”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We used to eat here years ago when we were students, but hadn't been back for years. We decided to try again, but we were very disappointed. The pizzas were not tasty at all. If you want to eat a good Italian pizza in Leiden, go to Karalis.

“Great find, reasonably priced right in the center of Leiden”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We have lived in Leiden for almost 20 yrs and never went to this restaurant. Tried it since it was the only pizza restaurant open on Mondays! Pleasantly surprised. Good service, reasonable prices. Pizza was good / not great, pasta was also very reasonable. This is a good place for families, lots of students, informal though nice interior. It looks quite dark from the outside but was actually quite light and nice atmosphere inside. We will go there again.

“It's okay for a low cost, quick bite”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Somehow, over the past years , the pizza 's have shrunk and some of my favorite toppings have disappeared, but still it is okay to eat a quick pizza here. (if it is really busy and people are waiting to get seated at the bar: just leave... It isn't worth the wait though). Don't go for amazing tastes, brilliant wines or anything like that. They do have a spritz and a prosecco on the menu. If you want something with a bit more quality, they start charging... so, no problem, with that in mind you can always choose a proper Italian restaurant if that is what you fancy for that night.
There's a lot of alteration going on within the staff, so the service can vary quite a bit, but as I said, if you are just into a quick and cheap bite, this is okay. In the back they have a large room for groups. So if you are looking for a spot to eat with a large grout that isn't sponsored for the meal and doesn't have a lot to spend: this is the place (do make reservations ahead if planning to arrive with a large party).
Oh yeah, it's a franchise, you can also visit in Arnhem, Nijmegen and Maastricht.
