Usually select same pizzas from menu because we know they will be just as we want. We have always been very happy with the friendly service. Always a busy place, good indication of its popularity.

A very busy Friday night we managed to get into pg after a bit of a queue. The pizza makers put on a great show with their dough massaging and tossing. The pastas were good but enormous portions which could have been shared between two....More

A quick stop in for lunch & we were not disappointed. Both pizzas were authentic and delicious, and the atmosphere was great too.

Best food, fantastic service. Reasonably priced. We ordered more than enough food for our family of 5, and managed to eat it all. Pizza's were the best & the vino!!! Should have left some room for dessert though!

Have not been here since 2008 and yet again the best Pizza you could possibly wish for. Harry made the best Cappricossa and the service was excellent. I only wish they home delivered to the Gold Coast :-)

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
