Who would have thought that you would find the best Cauliflower dish here ever. Can't seem to reproduce it. They said it is made on the stove top (not in the pizza oven like I thought) at a very high temp. But its the spices that make it so perfect. Pizza is excellent.

We came here as a family of three teenagers on recommendation from tripadvisor. The first thing we couldn't help but notice was the exorbitantly high prices. It is $13 for a single, run of the mill, though tiny margherita pizza, which is quite ridiculous. So we ordered one for takeaway - only to wait for over 20 minutes, by which time we were very frustrated. When we queried about our order, a worker saw that our order had been forgotten about in the recent orders lay-by, and we weren't even offered an apology. This is extremely poor customer service.

When we finally tried the pizza, it was extremely underwhelming. I have eaten at countless well established pizzerias around the world - New York, Sydney, London, etc, and this one didn't even come close to any of them. It was salty, slightly burnt, and as another reviewer has mentioned on here - very greasy/oily. There was very little to admire.

I haven't tried the other dishes at this place, but as far as a pizzeria goes (if you are looking for a good quality pizza), then I strongly recommend to skip this place to avoid disappointment.



The problem is that this place has a SERIOUS identity crisis.

From the barrata appetizer to the cucumber salad to Margaretta pizza, every dish tastes so good. The materials are fresh.

It is hard to get reservations but you can find one on urbanspoon. Go for their pastas and their entres which vary and for their desserts. The wines are relatively inexpensive and pair well with their food. Their homemade pastas are excellent with just the right amount of sauce. We love their meat options as well. Well cooked. We normally get a few bar bites, salumi and then order and few pastas and a few meat dishes and share as the food is too yummy to have one dish

Service is good. It is noisy and crowded and there are a few tables outside.

Super busy pizzeria next to the main restaurant (which is open in the evenings). When we arrived the place was full so we were asked to write our name on the board and waited nearby for a table. We were given a spot at the bar which was fun to watch the staff (all cool blokes - I did wonder if any cool ladies work here too??) make the pizzas... We were impressed with both pizzas ordered - Salsiccia which had homemade fennel sausage and the Napoletana with capers, anchovies etc. The crust was superb - light and slightly charred. The music selection was very cool - Velvet Underground, Johnny Cash, Clash...We are pizza connoisseurs having eaten pizza in many fine countries (and our hometown of Melbourne, Australia) and this was up there with the best..
