Nice and tasty pizzas. The sauce was definitely homemade, and the toppings were good. The service was brilliant, but the knives should have been sharper. Great atmosphere. Worth a visit.

As Italians we must say that the pizza was great (both the dough and the ingredients). We would have definitely rated 5 stars. However, when we asked for two espressos at the end of the dinner, we were given two terrible, watery ones, which is...More

If you see deep-pan or stuffed-crust as abominations then this place is for you! Yes it is more expensive than Domino's. But you get what you pay for. Real pizza, really good. Try it and enjoy the difference.

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
