The restaurant is tucked away in a back corner of Balmain. It can be hard to find ... and harder to park. It can also get frantically busy. It occupies a small space and is probably not the best for intimate tete-a-tetes. The din can be such that it is hard to hear the waitress recite the specials (usually through a strong Italian accent) let alone a dining companion across the table.
Having listed the negatives, I can now say it is well worth the effort. The pizzas are excellent - most if not all staff are Italian and they definitely like to do things their way. Thin bases, only Italian mozzarella, prosciutto, salami and other toppings like porcini mushrooms. No ham & pineapple, no fried eggs, no half-n-halfs. The 'Italian way' also describes the no-nonsense attitude of the wait-staff. You're not forced to eat here, you know!
The house antipasto platter ($24.50) is also recommended - menu says for two but it easily stretches to four as an excellent appetiser.
It is BYO with no corkage charge - another big tick. Pizza are a good size and prices are reasonable - from under $20 to $28 (for specials).
