I last visited this place in the late 1990s when it appeared to have an association with Col'Cachio. But no longer does this association appear to exist, as I couldn't find the trademark brie and peppadew puzza anywhere on the menu. So I settled for the calamari with chips which was tender and tasty. Washed down with Jack Black lager.... More

The place is pretty far from city center and while food is ok ... it doesn't worth a special drive. Price are average and service was good.

I have usually just driven passed and have sometimes wondered about the two strange mannequins at their door. I am also loyal to another pizzeria - figuring that I shouldn't try and fix something that isn't broken. We were invited to Morituri by family friends. What a great surprise. It's nothing like it looks from the road. Also there is... More

This place is exactly what it sets out to be: a cheerful, easy-going little trattoria where people get together over great, simple food. It's perfect for a quick Sunday night supper: excellent thin-base pizzas, made in a wood-fired oven, and a Chorizo Arrabbiata pasta that was simply delicious. Small, but decent, wine list, and fast and friendly service. We will... More

I tried this restaurant for the first time with a friend. I had the pizza, an obvious choice for an obvious reason...it was great. However, my friend had pasta for her main meal and a creme brulee for dessert which was both very bland. The creme brulee also turned out to be very runny and sour due to the use... More

We had not booked but were welcomed even though we had several children. The waiters quickly set up a table and were non-plussed that we shared pizzas. The service was quick and the pizzas thin-based and delicious.

Making a welcome return under new ownership the spruced up menu has a lot to offer. An awesome gluten free pizza base and great cappers. And all within walking distance. Convenience and great quality on your doorstep.
