Great venue & pizza. We ordered take away & the service was prompt & the staff friendly. The vanilla slice is a must!

“Delicious pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

We arrived without a booking early on a Friday night and staff were helpful to seat and serve us before the booked table arrived. The pizzas were delicious and served promptly. This was a good restaurant for what we wanted at the time.

“Cramped and loud”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

Visited with a group from work and our pre-booked table consisted of a couple of regular square tables and then a lower round table on the end, causing our group to feel rather disjointed. There was no thought put into the layout here, the person on the end was inches from the back of the person on the next table and servers had to squeeze to get through. Service isn't priority here, I recognise it is BYO but there are never offers made for whether we'd like to purchase any non-alcoholic drinks, minimal checking back throughout the evening. The restaurant itself is quite loud - imagine the stereotype of a loud Italian household! But just the way they cram people in, it makes it pretty much impossible to have any kind of intimate conversation. The food is solid but nothing to write home about. I'd try again if with no more than four people, wouldn't recommend for a larger group.

“Poor at best”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Went for takeaway. Ordered.waited. Watched people that were dining in ( after we had ordered) get their meals before our takeaway pizza. Went up to ask if our order was coming, waitress went over to the BENCH where it had been sitting! No apology for the long wait, no apology for it sitting on the bench, no apology for not CALLING our number out, or better yet, checking if there was anyone in the "waiting area" where we were waiting ( there's 3 chairs) it's not huge. I told her I was disappointed and she flippantly apologised. She had also not included the vanilla slice we had ordered which I had to ask for. Pizza was average, soft goey base, ALOT of cheese and not much of anything else for a "supreme" pizza. Avoid or go to one of the many other pizza joints in .

“Disappointed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Good food. Service was terrible and we waited 40 mins for our food. They tried to over charge us too. Very disappointing.
Save your $$$ and go elsewhere in Alice for a good feed and customer service to match.
