Wow I was so happy with the pizza; so delicious! We ordered ABC and Mexican Sunset. I love the big chunky and fresh toppings on the soft and fluffy base. So good! I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Palmy!

Had a catch up BYO with friends last week - such good pizza (apricot chicken!) and good place to get together with friends! Well worth the visit!

Came here two nights running as my son and I both really enjoyed the pizza. We ordered something not on the menu as my son just wanted a cheese and pepperoni pizza and the staff did not hesitate to offer to make it for us. It was a great pizza, really great base and very cheesy and really tasty pepperoni.... More

We eventually got him a local beer. Pizzas, well they were served quickly, and they were OK, bases were quite thick, but they had everything on top that we asked... More

Strange experience, although increasingly common in NZ business - e.g. as though they're doing YOU a favour by selling the product to you - the consumer who pays for their product - SO BE GRATEFUL! The problem here is that you can only order a few items for delivery - mostly Pizza - even though there's a menu with a... More

Great casual relaxed place to go for pizzas. Great variety and full of fillings. It was hard to decide which one so we ordered 6 different flavours. Great atmosphere and very helpful friendly staff. Would go back here.

Every table was booked out when we got there at 6pm on a Saturday night-rugby game was on down the road but still booked out. Got lucky with a cancellation though and they quickly sorted us out. Great pizza-don't be put off by the thick base-it is light and fluffy and holds the ample toppings beautifully. Arrived quickly and generous... More

A classic in Palmerston North - casual and comfortable environment, nice side of the square, kids can go out and run around a little just outside. This is primarily a pizza place (and a good one at that) but also has a small other main menu for those not wanting pizza.

went with the extended family for dinner. Good service, great selection of food - the ladies had some very tasty salads and the blokes a range of pizza. Kids got a reasonable feed with the kids meal deal. Busy place but not to noisy. Have been plenty of times in the past and always reliable.
