We stopped getting this pizza delivered as it was always cold and crap, nothing to do with Altro as it was a 3rd party service. Since picking up ourselves the quality is a lot better.
Restaurant is clean and friendly staff, Gluten free base available for a little extra cost.
Also Vegan friendly.

I’ve eaten here a few times and the pizza ‘in house’ is generally good. Ordered take home last night and it was terrible.
There were 4 olives on the salami pizza and the vegetarian consisted of a couple of pieces of Bocconcini and capsicum. I’ll never go back. I’m saddened by the lack of quality and the general don’t care attitude.
Don’t do it. Make your own pizzas at home because they’ll be better. Blur

The pizza was great. The service from the young girl was appalling. Didnt want to be there and spent the entire time on her phone behind the register. Only ventured out when she had to and we she did it was surly.
Its a good way to loose customers!!
Its a real shame as the wood fired pizza was great.

Overall this is the best place for pizza in Willy, except for the seafood pizza, had it last week and the prawns were not fresh and still had their tails on. Just wanted to eat a pizza without having to pull out shells from between my teeth, this one did not deliver! Also, the rocket on the pizza was not fresh. Apart from that, the staff are always friendly and the pizza usually great, particularly the Rustica. Try Pizza Dasporto for their seafood pizza, it is far superior.

So I fully appreciate (based on the reviews) there are lots of people that love this place so I know not everyone will agree with my review.

We gave Altro a try as it came recommended from a few people we know. A (mostly) authentic Pizza restaurant less than 5 mins drive from our house, lets hope its good.

Firstly to the seating, most of the seats are stools with no backs so not really an atmosphere of comfort. The wine list was short but with some interesting options (the shiraz was quite nice). The pizza list is interesting and full of choices so most people should be able to find what they want.

The key problem was the pizza's themselves, unfortunately everything about them was wrong. The key to a good authentic italian pizza is a nice thin and crispy base. I have no issue with it getting a bit soggy in the middle as you expect that when its super thin. The issue was that it was too thick all the way through, probably 50% thicker than it should be. As a result there was nothing crispy about it and came across overall doughy. Then the toppings. The other key with amazing authentic pizza is small amounts of high quality toppings and nothing about what was on the pizzas was great quality. The salami was clearly the sopressa from coles, the ham was also clearly your supermarket quality and the olives looked like your normal average quality supermarket fair.

Then came the cheese. Mine had mozzarella but as it was not cooked properly it had hardly melted and so was more just chunks of unmelted mozzarella that did not stretch when eaten (which is not nice on a hot pizza)

Hey, the pizza was not terrible but it fell down in every area. For an authentic pizza restaurant it just does not cut the mustard.
