After coming to this place for pizzas for more than 2 years, there were not too many places I would go for pizzas.

The new renovation and other food items added more pleasant surprises.

Staffs and the owner are still friendly with passion.

We happened onto this pizzeria by chance, and it was terrific! My reviews tend to be harsh, however, this pizzeria is run by Italians who work in an open kitchen and can cook. The pizza bread is made from the right flour, it's been rested and stretched properly to get a chewy doughy wonderfully flavoured pizza base, which is crisp on the edges and still thin.
The toppings used are great quality, fresh and tasty! If you request more basil, it's not a problem. We ordered 3 different pizzas and all were wonderful.
I can recommend this to any authentic Italian pizza lover.
We did not try the other dishes there, though there are other plates apart from pizza.
The atmosphere is causal, clean and rustic. The venue is not overly large, so you may need to book ahead.

Booked a table for my family on a wednesday night. The little restaurant was quaint and felt homey. Not too busy and the customers were enjoying themselves. Felt like i was sitting in a big dining hall in a home, not in a restaurant.
Service was good, the staff were very friendly. They were very considerate with my toddler walking around and being very inquisitive. The manager even showed her how the pizza was being baked and gave her different cheeses to try. The food was great too. We were very full at the end of the night.
We wanted a slow, no fuss dining experience with our toddler, we dont dine out too long, she gets bored. But we took our time, she had a lot of new things to see and was interested in watching the staff make the pizza. Other customers were family with children dining out as well and so added to the feeling of a relaxed atmosphere with other kids coloring and conversing with the staff.
The owner was very warm as well. He made a point to ask if we were ok and was patient with all the kids in his restaurant.
Obviously we came at a good time. Not too busy and on a weekday, everyone was relaxed.
Will be coming back again, definitely.
But most probably still on a weekday.

Have so far only had Take away Pizzas from Al Volo and they have all been excellent - thin bases with a lovely variety of toppings and they are prepared to leave off or add things to your taste

Went there for dinner with a few friends. Service was absolutely appalling- extremely slow and rude. When we finally finished our meals and went to pay it took them 15 minutes to split the bill into 2! We obviously got a bit frustrated and commented on the poor service- the manger's response was even worse, instead of being apologetic he got even more rude. One of the worse customer service we have experienced.
