The Italian originators of this eatery were good but too strict on not allowing any condiments on their food, even salt & pepper, which they refused to provide. Now, apart from the new owners' friendlier service, I think the pizzas are actually better and am looking forward to tasting the rest of the menu, over coming weeks.

Having found this gem a little too late we were surprised to find there are new owners already. The food seems to be the same and the service is actually a lot friendlier.
Very comfortable place to eat, even on the hottest days there is nice shelter and a slight breeze unlike a lot of other establishments on maggie.

Best pizza for miles around, lovely location, delicious home made gelato! Great location just near the beach at Alma Bay. Lovely breeze and outlook. Good friendly service. BYO makes it a very reasonably priced lunch, especially with a group of friends.

Really enjoyed our lunch here. It sounds like there has been a change in ownership but things seem to be running well now. Shared the large Romana pizza with my husband. The dough and tomato base were both really fresh and the pizza had that lovely smokey quality that only comes from wood fired ovens. Only constructive criticism is that the pizza could have done with a bit extra in the oven as it was a bit under done in the middle but this didn't make much difference. The gelato was really delicious. I had the Mon Cherry - dark chocolate with heaps of gooey Amaretto sour cherries and a really generous serve. My husband had the Turkish Delight (lovely rosewater flavour) and spiced fig and they were both yummy. Staff were also very friendly.
