This is a "local" for me and we go quite often for meals with family or friends, as well as using their takeaway service. There is a good choice of pizzas and the Italian cured meats such as bresaola, prosciutto and salame are all good quality. Service is reasonably fast except when ultra-busy - but the drinks are always served... More

Great night with friends and family. My husband went for a large pizza- they were not joking it was actually massive!! Excellent selection of pizzas, generous toppings. Kids had desserts and were pretty happy. Place was very busy by the time we left- clearly popular and rightly so.

This is a real favourite of ours. Fabulous atmosphere and friendly staff make it feel as though we're on holiday. All the food we've had has been very good. The pizzas are cooked in a pizza oven and are always excellent The restaurant was very busy and the staff were still attentive and the service was good

However, we made a last minute booking to go last Friday evening and the place was freezing ! no heaters on... More
