We arrived to the evening pizzeria on a freezing January night. We did not know what to expect when we were seated in what seemed to be a garden shed. The table was lit by only candles.It would not be for everybody but our group of adults and kids got had a great time. Very good starters and pizzas.

Both were generous in portion size. We then enjoyed pizza. The... More

Had pizza with side orders here. Pizza was fine but the side orders were poor. Main contention though is the €7 corkage charge and €1.50 for a spoonful of dip! Ridiculous charges & wouldn't recommend the food.
