“A very nice place for a casual meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

First visit to Red Pizzeria, and we were impressed. The pizzas are definately gourmet, and the service is fine. Well themed environment, and great if you have a large party (we did) Recommended when you want a casual night out.

“Excellent pizzas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

We had a dinner here last night, it was the first time for our family but others have been here before. Reservation was made 2 weeks ago - which is useful if you are having a large slab pizza. Between 6 adults we had this massive long pizza ($80) between us and there were still plenty of leftovers to take home once we were done. The restaurant was clean, the staff was courteous, I will definitely return again - probably with a few more people to finish that pizza.

“Opening jitters maybe”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

This review is a wee bit late but here goes. Arrived at restaurant 10 minutes after it was meant to be open on a cold wet Sunday morning, doors were shut and locked. Walked around the building until we found someone in another section who yelled out to the Pizzeria to open up. Upon being let in we were seated and as it was cold my companion ordered a pot of tea. We loved the look of the menu and put our order in. Time went by and no tea. After about 20 minutes I asked what happened about the tea and was told by the waiter on his return that no one had turned the system that boiled the water but it was on now and would not be long. By this time our brunch had arrived and looked great. BUt upon closer look the garnish on the side of the plate had a wee slimy extra in it.. yes a slug. We pointed this out and the waiter was very sorry about it and wanted to take meal away and bring another but by this time we were running late so ate and left. We have never returned. I find it amazing that service and attention to detail was so slack especially because we were the only 2 people in the place.
