Tried the pepperoni and ricotta and one with a pistachio pesto base, both were delicious. Very thin base, not too crispy, but didn't flop over when you pick up a slice, perfect amount of char on the crust. Good drink selections, the decor was very...More

Came here as part of the pizza tour. We already went to a few other places so I was starting to get full up. But when these pizzas came out, it immediately made me hungry again. They had so much flavour and tasted completely different...More

I had a 12inch pizza and it was awesome! 3 different sauces to choose from and several toppings. I think it was a little pricey for pizza and they burnt mine the first try. All in all good experience.
