I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled because the pizza was so bad. I love all kinds of pizza, but this was awful. Went with family of 10 and it was unanimous that this was the worst pizza ever. It has become a daily joke. Nothing was fresh, sauce was barely visible and the crust was so stale. I don't... More

This place is in a great location and looks nice but the service is poor.

Wow, what a find. Not what you expect to have in the middle of the old city near the Jaffa Gate. The pizza is everything you. Expect from a great pizza. Buy it by the slice or by half or whole pizzas. They size is extremely large and everything is fresh.

Very close to where we stayed. Open later and on Sabbath, so it was one of the few options during those times. Food was good, not spectacular.

Totally unexpected but there you go. Just like the ubiquitous hamburger, the pizza is running a close second. Perfect if you're hankering for a quick slice with both Italian and Middle Eastern flavors on the fence.

Decent, by-the-slice pizza. Friendly staff. Open on Shabbat. Across the street from the Gloria Hotel, and next to Jaffa Gate.
