Over the ditch to watch the Ashes and ended up in the Maine. Constant problem with pizzas is the lack of consistency. In the old country most pizzas make a very poor stew!! Anyway the pizzas here were outstanding and the beer was very cold....More

Without a doubt the best pizza in Castlemaine, we drive all the way from Melbourne to eat their amazing food! The service is fantastic and the food is fresh and tasty.

Best pizza in town. Fresh ingredients, traditional & gourmet choices. Eat in or takeaway, very friendly owners cook the pizzas & serve you.

We are pretty fussy about pizza. These pizzas were largely crust and minimal topping. We recognise many people like this "New York Style" pizza. Unfortunately it is not our favourite. Great service though.

This place is a total joy - it's only little so best to book but it has a lovely atmosphere and beautiful wood-fired pizzas and salads, plus warm and friendly service from waiter Kathy. Don't miss it if you are in this lovely country town!

Pizza like it "should" be. Amazingly simple and very tasty. Highly quality ingredients that make for one of the best pizzas I've ever eaten. The hosts are friendly and welcoming.
