A very cosy little restaurant with all the staff as friendly as you would want. An y Pizza on the menu will do.

Thank Pierre J

One of the best Pizza's I had in a long long time. Full toppings and a crunchy base - even had my hubby's favourite anchovy pizza. YUM!!

Lovely waitresses (and waiter), lovely music, VERY yummy food! Had a awesome evening! Everything made on the spot. We were lucky we didn't have any waiting time problem the live music kept us entertain! Definitely a must-go in Montague :)

Possibly one of the best pizza's I've ever had! No mean feat being a 41 year old pizza funding... More importantly my neurotic, food phobic 7 year old daughter ate the whole thing - Bam! No greater praise x

These girls are seemingly fresh from Home Ec classes where they promptly forgot that one should open and read recipe books! They had no idea what Penn is! Fancy that and them being an Italian restaurant! They also put cinnamon into a macaroni and cheese dish, which they also forgot or did not know should be baked in the oven instead of presenting a grey mess to a client. I watched in horror as they squeezed tomato sauce from a squeeze bottle onto a pizza as presumably the base, shame don't they even know how to prepare a fresh tomato base of their own? At the very least they should GET A CHEF, you know nothing much about cooking for clientele. I would give this spot wide berth despite it's catchy name....

Hello Ben S,

A truly scathing review from you Ben S. Completely out of kilter with 99% of the reviews and feedback that we receive. But there is always one truly horrific and life altering experience seems you have made this that one? Whilst mostly level headed and fair I cannot help but feel affronted by your baseless assertions. Please find some remedial information and facts to your lack of understanding below.

Penne -and not Penn, Benn S- you either mistook a stationary shop for an eatery or vice versa, either way a dictionary could help. Our employees can, rest assured, when speech is enunciated and clear, decipher the complexities of the pasta chosen. They have been confronted with this dilemma in the past and fortunately their military like training came to their rescue and the continued support from locals and visitors to Montagu.

As further information for your archives, many recipes - ours included - include a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg to offer a more complex flavour. We do pride ourselves on not offering mass produced grohl but distinctive homemade flavours. That this did not agree with you is unfortunate but not the shortcomings of the trained and amply able staff only your limited knowledge of the subject matter.

The tomato sauce you refer to is once again a telling sign of your lack of understanding but quick vocalisation of premises you know nothing of. Some guidance, all those tins you saw adorning the open plan kitchen and preparation area with PLUM / CHOPPED TOMATOES clearly legible. Those tomatoes are the basis for our home made (secret) Tomato Base Sauce which goes on our Home Made Bases made to order and baked to the closest thin crust perfection possible. The squeeze bottle you are referring to does not have tomato sauce in it by the way, if you were unsure all you needed to do is ask.

In closing Benn S, I trust that if and when you are in town again you would make the effort of coming around so we can explain how things work. It would be a shame to allow a fine food fundi like yourself to be swayed by lack of information and knowledge on the subject matter, and more importantly sway others with uneducated waffle.

Regards
