Like the pizzas in Italy , very minimal toppings. Fresh , nice and made quickly. BYO was great and no extra charge. Small restaurant so get In early. Even better get takeaway and take down the beach.

Great little place. BYO but they don’t charge corkage which is great. Fantastic pizzas. Very limited tables so you May have to wait a while for one but it’s worth it.

First off this place is tiny. You are coming here for the pizza, not a long relaxing meal on a date. Put your name on a list and you wait for a table to free up. The staff are VERY friendly and helpful, attentive, and...More

The options of toppings was fantastic, and they were soo good. Really little place, run by Italians, super friendly and very busy so you may have to wait if you don’t get there early, but the wait will be worth it.

Really nice pizza (just a little hard crusted for my liking) and the other food looked amazing as well... Outstandingly friendly service too in a very busy little restaurant! BYO which is always a plus (:

This place seems pretty authentic. Very well managed, great food and friendly service, especially for a BYO including beersies.

This pizza is so good you'll feel like your in Naples! The whole vibe gave me a feel of my European self and reminded me of family holidays to italy. Highly recommend!!! If you leave disappointed you don't know real pizza 😋
