I tried this pizza place since I remembered a great review a while back. I had high hopes when I saw this wonderful wood burning pizza oven and after asking if they had any slices he told me that peperoni pizza was just coming out of the oven!

The pizza was not terrible but just bland and unremarkable. How can so many pizza joints (chains and takeout) make pizza that tastes exactly the same. It had flavourless dough, not enough sauce to be tomatoey and cheese just this side of processed. The pepperoni tasted like the stuff you get in bags in the milk section of the supermarket. The crust was cooked to a crisp perfection but without any flavour -wasted!

Has anyone tried the gnochi recently? Should I give this place another go?

Thanks, Siri
