We tried pizzas, pasta and salads. All were excellent! Pizzas are cooked in a wood oven and the final taste is wonderful. Very friendly staff

I ventured here last Thursday evening. It was the sole bright spot in that part of Scarborough at that time of day. I was expecting an ice-cream parlour but when I entered, there was quite a lively bar atmosphere. I was a bit apprehensive about...More

We went there as a group and the place is too small to accommodate many people. They tried to make us sit together but the tables were shaking and the plates were paper squares. The pizza was worse than the one I make, but the...More
