“Expensive”

The pizza dough will toughen quickly once out of the oven.
I picked up a few and rushed them home about 5mins away, i was unable to eat the crusts as they had become too tough,very very dry dough.

Also the anchovies were the cheap fury kind, not the nice white one's i was expecting,considering the price paid.
Another fancy restaurant franchise = Boring.

The aromatic smell of fresh herbs and spices hits you as you enter through the doorway. The food is tasty.. and the homemade Gnocchi Matriciana is delicious... Excellent service ...thanks Mayble... You have to try the Woodfired "pizzette dolci" for dessert - Banana and Honey - served with vanilla ice cream, topped with icing sugar. All finished with an Affogato - Expresso with Ice Cream

Thank Droidster

Greeting was pleasant, Our waitress was Lovely.
We had to leave just after ordering Veal Scallopini, Chicken Schnitz & Chicken Parma...
It came with salad and chips. Fresh Produce used for sure. We are owners of Fruit & Veg shops, nice quality. Thank you. It was my birthday we were supposed to go to Stokehouse for dinner but our son was unwell... we thought a local place might be better, just in case. Ended up we did have to leave, food was great even out of take away containers 15mins later. Pizza base was requested thin and that is exactly as it was - yum.
The chefs and pizza makers looked authentic as opposed to cheap labour.

Service terrific, desserts terrific and all good. However, the pizzas for the 6 of us were all burnt and hard and crusty. Stick to the more quality pizzas nearby in future

Great to find a great place that is open Monday's. Ambience is very nice, food delicious. Only negetive is cockade is $7 per bottle with I think is a bit much. Had three yummy courses and service was excellent.
