Reviewed July 13, 2013

Arrived late on a cold December night but were accommodated warmly. The food was very good. I would happily go back.

“Great pizza and coffee!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

I had the pleasure eating here on two occasions on a recent business trip. The pizza was nearly as good as Napoli pizza and it was good to see a nice range of beers on the menu. The service was good and the coffee was really good. No complaints would recommend for a chilled out business lunch or dinner with mates!

“good food - snotty service.”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

wandered by this place - and wandered in on a whim. my wife and i were not too terribly hungry, but thought we could use a snack before having some beers down the road. the food arrived in good time, and was nice. the biggest problem was that our waitress seemed so put off that we only ordered a pizza between the 2 of us. she kept looking at us with disdain, as if she didn't want to fool with our small order. this was probably the worst service that we encountered in all of Copenhagen. would probably go back if it wasn't for this.

“Great Atmosphere, stingy pizza toppings”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Ate here on Saturday evening when it was full to the brim. Really nice atmosphere although inside was extremely hot, nice service. The pizzas we ordered had a good base but the toppings were a bit tight, for example my partners pepperoni pizza had 3 small slices of pepperoni on it. The couple next to us had the same pizza and made the same comment so wasn't a one off. Would probably eat here again though as overall it was nice food in a novel and pleasant surroundings

Sorry you felt short-topped. We remember at least one comment about the peperoni/pepperoni
pizza on Saturday and we remade that pizza. Maybe that wasn't you though.
It would have been good if you said something at the time!

That pizza is not just about the peperoni - the slices of spicy salami (normally there are 6 reasonably large slices). There is also the pepperoni (the wood-fire cooked peppers) and scamorza (the smoked cheese) on a margherita base. We take care to try and cover most of the salami with the other ingredients so that it is protected from the intense heat of the oven. If we don't do this it gets dry and hard.
For the same reason we don't put prosciutto through the oven for instance, it goes on the pizza after it is cooked.

Sometimes we get comments about the lack of visible peperoni but it is usually there, somewhat covered but in balance with the other ingredients. It is one of our most popular creations.

Maybe you didn't get your proper share? - we make mistakes! We would have made you a new one if you had let us know.

Thanks for being prepared to give us another go. We do take your opinions seriously and regard
3 stars as a decidedly negative review. Hope to see you again soon!

best regards,

David Biffani

“Ok pizzas - nice ambiance”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Went here with a colleague, chose from a varied selection of pizzas. Not impressed really. But cool, young clientele. Busy also during a weekday. Limited wine selection. But up and coming area...the Meat City.
