Nice specials. Bread is delicious and pizza is great. But the mushroom appetizer is best ever. Good cold beer.

Do you like an endless din of screaming children with extra cheesy Italian decor? Perfect place for you. As in Hull, it is a bit like Wal-E-Weasal's with kinda b****y servers. They have to yell over the din, memorize menu items, repeatedly scream the options...More

Very good Pepperoni pizza and blueberry juice. Price is cheap (CAD 20.00) to have 8 slices of pizza and 2 big glasses of juice. The service is pretty good with atmosphere is casual. Good to have some time without stress.
