Great food and friendly service! Don't let the location which is beside Meadowbank station deter you, the atmosphere here is very homely. Pizzas never fail to hit the spot.

Excellent and friendly service! Second time I've been here, and I was even happier! Food was amazing again. We were seated outside however they had outdoor heaters so it was good.

Food was fantastic, really delicious Italian food!! Just a few comments on my first visit - 1. We ordered a metre pizza, but they brought out small circle pan pizzas telling us it was the same thing. Fortunately, 2min later they brought out our metre pizza but we nearly started eating the pizzas. I was disappointed they they didn't even check initially and they just said it was the same thing. They are not the same. 2. We ordered 2 salads but they gave ours to another table. 3. They brought out our 2 chips at the end when we finished all our pizza and salads (they probably forgot because chips don't take long to fry). When they brought it out, they dropped it. So we had to wait again. At the end, we were just eating chips... I'd go back for the food but I hope the service would be better. I hope it was just that 1 night.

A nice suburban pizza place. Dining setting it's a outdoor tent. Nothing fancy. Staff were friendly and service are efficient. Two of us order bruschetta, pizza and pasta. Bruschetta tasted fine, but bread was a little brunt and the temperature variance between the fridge cold tomatoes and warm toast it's a little unrefined. Pizza were great, base a little fluffy and chewy and tasted great with the good topping. The little note is that the base it's a little too salty for my taste. Pasta was a seafood linguine. This tasted like the sea and maybe similar salt concentration as the Black Sea. Would return for a local Neapolitan pizza if in the area. But would just stick with the pizza. A little pricey for an under the tent outdoor experience.

One of the authentic Italian pizzerias in Sydney. Located right next to the Meadowbank Station, this place has a warm and cozy feel to it. Their woodfire pizzas come in 13inches , 1/2 metre & 1 metre. We had tried the Margherita and the formaggi and both of them were excellent. The menus come in colourful envelopes adding that fun element to the place. Definitely worth visiting over the weekends.

The place was a bit busy but that's because it was Mother's Day. Nevertheless, we had a great time as a family. Great food and excellent service. My husband was pleasantly surprised with the bill. He was expecting double the amount that he actually paid. Great value for money. We'll definitely go there again. Thank you very much.

Come here for food !!!! Pizzas are authentic, calamari and prawns were good, the only thing was it very noisy, squished and the tables so crammed that every time a waiter walked past he knocked some food off our tray and a glass was knocked off the table accidentally. Not a romantic setting and wonky sitting on the footpath but the food was awesome !!!!

Very authentic Italian place. The antipasto platter (prosciutto, more prosciutto, cheeses... Yum!) is a must. It is a bit pricey but well worth it. The pizza is made in a geniune Napoli pizza oven and the ingredients used are top quality. Try and you'll be addicted like me :)

Not just fantastic pizzas. Everything we tried on the menu was really good, including the day's specials and desserts. Only nitpick is the music seemed loud at times. Not a lot of ambience (it's all outdoors under tents, but we liked the casual feel and the food compensates.

The food is lovely, fresh ,authentic according to experts in our group. The staff is pleasant but not necessarily attentive. Not the easiest way to make a reservation. A good old fashioned direct phone call would still be simpler. Prices are reasonable, en par with similar places. The location is a little odd, but pleasant on a dry evening and convenient if you are taking the train back!

Food as always was great! The best pizza for miles. Only criticism is that the tables are packed in and very close to each other, making it hard to move between. Service good and always friendly. If they didn't squash tables in there would be disappointed people missing out on getting a booking.

Good food and great value for money. Staff are very attentive, friendly, and energetic. We dined with friends, and we ordered all the specials across the board, and we were all happy with the sharing dishes. It was my fourth visit, and never fail to satisfy a good appetite!

Food was excellent, fresh and tasty, only issue was our table had significant slope underneath asking downhill side seats very awkward to sit in comfortably. Seafood board was delicious, pizza 1/2 metre was plenty for four with fresh salad. Desserts especially tiramisu was good, coffee strong and hot.

Best pizza in Sydney, hands down. And I live very close to Haberfield/ Leichhardt! It's just difficult sometimes to find parking. Love this place – the guys serving are also incredibly charming, always makes it a wonderful night.

The staff was friendly, mostly young Italians and the food was good. My friends had very tasty pizze and I tokk the mussels in tomatoe sauce. Nothing out of the ordinary, but good. The same for the tiramisu, which was a quite small portion.

Good service and excellent pizza. Desserts were very good as well with a very authentic pannacotta. It's surprisingly not as noisy as it seems. The outdoor seating under canvas allowed us to hear each other without shouting.

Food was good overall as was the atmosphere. Kid friendly. Found the person taking the orders were quite rude to another customer when he asked for a variation. Spoke rudely in Italian and were laughing at him. Not nice. They would be enough to not return.

As usual, the food and service was wonderful but as it was raining they squished all the tables together resulting in a very uncomfortable, bumpy evening. I wish they had put a little extra thought into the rearrangement and perhaps taken a few tables out?
