These really are the best Pizzas I have tasted since returning to the UK from France in 1998. They are so fresh and so pleasingly different from all the high street Pizzas on offer. My favourite is the Fortissimo. The Pizzas come in 2 sizes...More

Heard really good things about this place but it didn't live up to expectations. Me & my partner went for lunch & we took our laptop to book a holiday. The seats were really uncomfortable, tables were dirty & my partners cooked breakfast was tiny....More
