Ordered a pepperoni pizza, and when we got it the pepperoni was so hot/spicy my wife was choking and coughing on the pizza. Last time it was not this hot/spicy! We asked if they had made some sort of mistake or problem, only to be shown a menu and told " see pepperoni, it has the word pepper in it!"

Not good, it was so spicy we couldn't eat most of it.

With that said, maybe it was just a mistake or maybe they changed ingredients , but i wish they would have told us upfront that its mouth burning, eye watering spicy!

The pizza is still really good though, i just wish they had slightly better service. The service water is self serve (not common at most restaurants) and the seating area is very limited.

Anyway, the staff are always friendly i just think its time for some minor improvements.

Thank you for your review and are truly sorry you were not satisfied with our pizza this time round. I'm afraid we are at the mercy of our suppliers and this time the pepperoni supplies from Italy is very spicy. Our waitress should have advised you that it is very spicy and the staff have been advised of this. We do have an alternative milder pepperoni but it is very mild and I do not classify it as pepperoni but we could have offered this. We are attempting to source another supplier but there are only 2 suppliers in the Philippines who import small goods from Italy. I'm afraid out premiss are something we have no control over and we are not happy with the premises either. Regarding the self service water we have found that this is the best way of serving out guest. By the way if you ventured across the street to sabang restaurant you will see they have the same self service on the water supply.
I am pleased to advise you that your next pizza is free as out motto "if you don't like it you don't pay for it" still stands and our waitress should have informed you of this as well. Please accept my apology for your unsatisfactory meal and we will do everything to correct the spicy pepperoni.

I wasn't sure what to expect from a pizzeria in this part of the world, and I couldn't decide whether to trust the reviews, so I decided to give it a try and see for myself.
I must admit they make very decent pizzas and even better than some I've had in Europe!
The crust is thin and not overloaded with tons of stuff.
In the end a good pizza for a good price, and having been there for a while, it was a nice break from the rest of the restaurant scene.
The staff is very friendly and attentive to the guests.
They also do deliveries, keeping Lyn fit!

The thing that impressed me about this place was the free delivery, even up to Sinandigan. The pizza came when we ordered it and was huge. It is a little pricey but the pizza is big and pretty good. The staff are very friendly and if you can afford it i would certainly recommend this place.

Hi Scot
Thanks for your review and pleased that you enjoyed the pizza. As you say we are a bit pricey for Philippine standards but our ingredients all come form Italy and as such are priced about 40 % higher than the product we used to purchase in WA when I operated in Mt Barker. As well as you say we don't charge for delivery which as you know in Oz is not the norm. However as you say we supply a good pizza for the money if you can afford it. And our beer is 50 peso OZ equivalent is $1.22 so were still a lot cheaper than Australian prices for an equivalent product. We look for ward to seeing you again .

Thank you for your review and so pleased you enjoy our pizzas. We do however produce out pizzas to the Italian recipe which learned with an Italian chef in perth Western Australia. Here in Sabang we source the majority of our toppings from Italy , tomatoes, salami pepperoni artichokes capsicum olive oil etc all sourced from Italy so we can truly produce an Italian style pizza which I'm pleased to say also equates to the American style pizza brought to the states by the Italian immigrants. Just a little bit of trivia . Thank you so much and we look for ward to serving you again.
