First impressions, i did not know what to think, really loud music, after your ears settle it's a nice spot for lunch. We ordered the potato and bacon pizza, spicy tomato pasta and a salad pasta, altogether it cost just over 50,000₩. Food was simply supberb, great italian dishes with tasteful and sensible korean additions. The hot tomato pasta had bulgogi with shreaded cheese on top added, paired with the sauce and pasta fantastically. If you're in Gangnam I highly recommend this resturant.

The kithen is noisy as chefs are shouting out at eachother, but that's a fine example of great communication in the kitchen which results in amazing food delivered to your table. Kudos to the head chef and owners.

Cool concept with live DJ (music may be a bit on the loud-ish side) and construction site theme. Some servers speak English which is great for foreigners, all servers however are super kind and very eager to help.

We ordered a Pizza which was exceptional, very thin crust - in fact unlike usual western eating style, you eat the pizza with a spoon. We were lucky to find a place immediately because as other reviewers noted it is constantly packed. If I'm ever in Seoul again, will definitely visit. Price is very reasonable.

Came with my girlfriend for some pizza. Place was overcrowded and we spent 20 minutes waiting our turn outside. Inside was very cold and super noisy. The music is loud and waiters occasionally shout to an extreme level. Food has to be ordered from the bar and if you want to get an extra drink you need to wait in line. After waiting in line for hot tea, they had none to purchase.

Positive aspects were a tasty soup pizza and okay sweet chili nachos.

This place if for young Koreans who want a trendy place to hang out and are not familiar at all with decent tasting western food. The pizzas are disgusting. They are essentially cheese and toppings on a hot plate. You have to eat it with a spoon.Go to Brick oven pizza a few blocks away and have real pizza that actually tastes good. Some of the other foods are not bad but as with many Korean restaurants, they focus more on appearance rather than substance or taste. If you want to go for drinks in a trendy place and you don't care how the food tastes, this place is fine. If you want to have a decent meal, there are so many better options around the area.
