Group of friends went out for a mates birthday. We were booked for 7pm, had some garlic pizzas for entree and our mains were all out by 8pm. Everyone really enjoyed their food! And pricing and service were good too. Will go back.

Food and service outdated. Very unhelpful and the staff clearly wanted to go home towards the end of our meal. Started turning lights off even though only 10pm.

Very noisy but the place is clean and the service good. Had a large pizza with the lot with extra anchovies whilst the rest of the friends had various other dishes which they all enjoyed. Overall a good place to eat.
