“Not bad but not brilliant”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is literally on my door step so I was keen to visit and look at what it was like. It has some good points like outdoor seating and you can go just for a drink if you want. The pizzas are small and expensive for what they are.

The staff also are a little surly which is not welcoming.

All a bit of a disappointment really.

“Expensive and small portions”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

The pizzas are very small and expensive. I felt that the quality of the meat was not the best. Perhaps they buy very cheap meat. But it is not the best. At leaf, the vegetarian pizzas are nice and the place is quite clean.

“good basic restaurant”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

We lived a few years in the area and went back once to see how it was.
Still the same: basic food, quality ok, price reasonable. service too french - slighlty arrogant which is the only negative point at the restaurant.
