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 !!!!

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 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.

An excellent food experience - great advice on how to design a metre long pizza for 5 people with different tastes and eating requirements...and it was excellent. Highly recommend the desserts also. We will happily come back.

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.

Amazing pizza! The best I've had!! Garden salad was a bit too salty & bitter. Would like more attentive service, a toilet door without a big gap (people can easily see inside), & adding a vegan dessert option
