I love this restaurant. They serve the beast pizzas, pastas and salads on the GC. Eat in or take away it is all fast and friendly. If you are watching your weight you must order the Italian or Greek salad and ask for some chicken to be added. It's the best salad ever. When I take my son in to... More

It's basically a dirty take out / delivery pizza joint with a couple of tables with plastic tablecloths, flourescent lights, sticky menus, badly patched plaster walls with wires hanging.. and that's the good...

After waiting 5 minutes on the phone they said were too busy to deliver but we could pick up. My partner went then there and nothing was ready, no one knows anything. They... More

Amazing food. Like the old Italian restaurant as a kid. The red and white cheq table cloth and all. Pizza incredible !!! Pasta dish. HUGE !! Love it and will be back. The only bad thing is it took me 6 months on the GC before I found it.
