We visited for lunch and were informed we could not have pizza until 5 pm which was not really a problem, but in an Italian style espablishment we had assumed that we would get pizza. Most of the meal was fairly priced, but my son was not very hungry but decided that he would just have a piece of chocolate brownie, the pieces were tiny so he took two, they must have been about 5cm square maximum. We did not see a price nearby, but I was horrified when I checked the bill after it had been paid to see that we had been charged £5 for two of these minute slices. I would have expected the price to be £1.00 or so. Next time I will check the menu.

Service was great for our family of 6. Don't know what those other reviews are about. This is the best pizza I've had outside of Italy. It is real tomato sauce and thin crusts that were just wonderful. We had quick service and the restaurant was full. Would go back here - actually would go to Skye if only to have that pizza again.

Please don't go to the trouble of installing a woodfired oven unless you are going to take care of what you put in it! Pizzas where very average with poor quality ingredients. It doesn't cost much to offer up a decent green salad alongside.....Also no pepper-mill, chilli oil etc. Being married to an Italian has probably turned me into a food snob, but good Pizza should be simple and honest. Possible anywhere!

Went here for child's birthday treat! Table was booked in advance, however, we waited 20 mins before being given menus and another 20 minutes till they took the order. No starters, no bread or garlic bread or olives or other antipasti's to start with. Nothing! Don;t know what Italian for nothing is but in Spanish we say "De Nada"!. We waited over an hour for pizzas. To expect us to try to keep 4 hungry children amused for an hour was a bit out of order. One toilet for over 20 tables???? How did they get away with this with environmental health! Queue for toilets for over 20 mins and then when you see the door open you have to leap up before anyone else gets in before you! Pizzas are fine, but no side orders. It is pizzas or nothing. No chips, no side salad, no nothing, but Pizzas. Do not buy Wine by the glass! £4.50 for a thimble full! Cakes are available though, but not everyone wants a scone with their pizza! Come on L'Incontro, surely being run by an Italian you should know better!!!!!!!!
