“Believe the hype!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

I came here with my boyfriend and his family after hearing many stories about the place - his parents have been coming since they were teenagers and the original Frank ran it; it is now run by his daughter so it is a proper family business. It doesn't look much from the outside and it is a tiny little place, probably seats only 30 people (so book if you can!), but don't judge it upon appearance, this place is wonderful. Very traditional and simple italian but cooked to perfection. The pizzas are divine, really soft dough but a nice crispy crust, and portion sizes are generous! Really enjoyed my visit here and would love to return again!

“Best pizzas around!”
Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

Seriously, these pizzas are the best around. They have an original pizza oven! The carbonara is fresh and tasty too! Come here if you are a fan of original Italian cuisine!

“Friendly family run restaurant”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Always a pleasure to go here. Buried away down a side street its like a well kept secret and you are always welcome back like long lost friends. Love the fact this restaurant has stayed in the family for 40 years. Basic decor, nothign fancy but that adds to the charm and experience. Good old fashioned hearty and home made elicious Italian food.
