Always excellent food and service with a smile. Definitely the extra mile for us this time - staying open beyond closing time for us to collect our meal en route from delayed flight home :)

Always great food including best pizza In Sydney. Parking around Leichhardt is sometimes a challenge though plenty if you prepared to walk a few minutes.
