Love the pizza. The location is a little hard to find parking, but still ok. Usually we just do take out because it's a bit noisy inside and always too busy.

Their Veggie Slice is Heaven. Sauce is definitely first class. Add salad and drink, you're full fort hours. Friendly staff, fun atmosphere and great people watching. Sometimes l take a half baked pizza home and invite a friend! Bottle of Red and you're set!

Always amazing, thin, deep dish it’s always great. Super people also. Spinach /mushroom deep dish is the best. Also try the “take and bake”.

Popular with a broad range of people, noisy and generally crowded. Well run, so the wait isn’t bad. Good salads too.

We just had to try the famous pies. Portions were generous and food delicious. Loved the way high bar stools were set around the tables for the food to be at hand!
