“Poor service, overpriced food”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here some weeks ago so booked again for friends birthday however this time not so good. Waited over half hour before anyone came to take drink or food orders. Food arrived spasmodically. 3 of our table of 14 did not get their pizzas till well after others had finished their mains. One staff member said they had been missed. Another said that they were held up because the restaurant was so busy. There were plenty of empty tables so I would hate to b there when the place was full. Not good getting two different reasons for late service. Quality of food disappointing for price e.g. Pizza supreme around $26 tasted salty, bacon had been chopped up in layers and not separated so chunky. Not enough filling for price. Hopefully this was just a bad night and not indicative of usual dinner service.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

One of the best Pizza we have ever had. Great topping choices, and very reasonably priced. The only down side was the service it was very slow. We were seated for at least 40 mins before anyone came to take a drink or food order, and our order was only taken after I went to speak to a waitress. It then took at least another 15 minutes for our drinks to arrive and I had to ask for them to check where they were. Not only is this bad for the customer but the proprietor is missing out on revenue. Once the pizza was ordered it did arrive very quickly. We would definitely return but would certainly make sure we were served promptly .
