cutlery and napkins would have been great, service was a little lacklustre - even despite ordering through an app.
mushroom sides were so heavy with batter + dry, the potato gems were all stuck together with nothing to eat them with. pizza was great tasting and value though.
Music choice was good but the music volume was too loud
HI Michael, Thanks for your great review. Appreciate your comments regarding the music and will address this with our team in terms of volume. Thanks for visiting.
With the set seating times the bar got slammed with drink orders.
It took 35 minutes to receive my first drink and when you are limited to a 2 hour booking it's frustrating.
My suggestion would be arrange staggered seating times.
Food and drinks were both good. The long wait times were annoying.
A great place to meet friends for a drink. Highly recommend the grazing platter
Out of lock down!!
Good food for a great price. Although service seemed a bit chaotic and unorganised. We like them though, so we'll go back :-)
Thanks for your review. Yes, the evening you dined with us, was the eve of Melbourne's latest lockdown and incredibly busy for this reason. Whilst we worked within our restricted patron numbers, our team were inundated across the evening and did their best job under difficult circumstances. We hope to see you back another time so that you can experience our service the way we always strive to deliver it. Glad you enjoyed the food!
Love this place. Good for a larger group and equally good for a quiet drink with a smaller group. Excellent service and a good range of drinks and food. Perfect inner west location too.
Thanks for your glowing review Mick! Will pass on the comments to our team and we are so glad you enjoyed your visit with us. See you next time :-)
Staff are always helpful and upbeat. They work very hard.
Thanks so much for your review Nonsta! We think so too and will let them know. See you next time.
Trivia night was awesome! Thank you!! We will be back :)
Thanks so much for your review Caitlin! Glad you enjoyed Trivia, it is always so much fun. See you Wednesday.
We booked to be at Back Alley Sally's and were moved to their event space next door. The event space is a large shed where we ate our pizza and nachos (both of which were amazing) however it was very isolated in the large shed and there was a very large function in the back half of the space. The event shed closes at 10pm whilst Back Alley Sally's stays open to 12am. This was disappointing as we had to try and find another place to continue our celebrations, had we been sitting at the place we booked we could have stayed without an issue.
My friends and I were very disappointed by this movement, this is something to check when you make a booking.
Food is always great as was the service and the drinks. The venue was Covid compliant.
Recommendation to a friend is conditional on sitting at Back Alley Sally's and not being palmed off next door.
Pizza was great, good selection of drinks, great vibes!
Love Back Ally’s ♥️ Best in the west! Rad ambience, best pizzas & service is always mint :)
Thanks Adele! What an awesome review to read. Really appreciate it and will pass on to the team - we think they are pretty special too!
A nice night of trivia at a nice bar. Drinks were good, food was good, and we were able to move to a child friendly table when requested.
Thanks for your review Dave - So glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit - we look forward to welcoming you back next time.
Good atmosphere and friendly environment for a lot of kids to run around
Chill atmosphere, great range of pizza and other tasty snacks.
Delicious vegan pizza options, friendly staff and great atmosphere. X
Thanks so much for your review! So glad to hear you enjoyed your visit
Food was mediocre, my penne serving was tiny and there was fake cheese on the potatoe gems.
Hi Anon, apologies that you felt the Penne serving size was tiny - all of our pastas are a standard portioned size and we feel they are a generous serving. The Potato gems have melted cheese on them, however also a chipotle mayo which is squeezed across the top - it may be that this is what you are referring to? Please do let us know if you have concerns next time and we will happily address while you are with us so that we can assist as best possible. Kind Regards Jo
The staff were amazing. Helpful, polite and the service was speedy. Will definitely host another function at Back Alley Sally's.
Thanks for your glowing review Caroline. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit and I will pass this feedback on to our team. Look forward to welcoming you back in the near future! Regards. Jo
The place is tucked away in the Yewers St alley
Quaint but the team are so friendly and knowledgeable
The pizzas are delicious
Thank you so much for your review! We think our team are very special too - I will make sure that your comments are passed on to them all. Many thanks and we look forward to making your next visit just as enjoyable! Cheers. Jo
Great atmosphere yummiest Pizza and friendly service
Thanks for your review Belinda! So glad that you enjoyed your visit, pizza and our service. Cheers, Jo
Thanks for your review Aleks!
Was there for a mid-week pizza and drink - and was not disappointed. Great selection of drinks and the pizzas, though strange combinations, were delicious.
Looking forward to checking BAS out again soon - It looks perfect for a Friday night!
Thanks for your great review Rita! The strange combinations really work - yes... We would love to see you back on a Friday evening soon. Cheers. Jo
Great value always but especially on Tuesday nights with the special.
Thanks Sam and great to hear you enjoyed it!
Awesome atmosphere with very cool as the tic within the place. Unintentionally went on a night where they had $7 pizzas and $5 sides specials, so massive win on the value front. (It was a Tuesday btw) and it was all delish! Staff were very friendly. Highly recommend. Will be back for sure.
Thanks for this great review! So glad that you enjoyed your visit.
Bloody awesome pizzas, and the vegan cheese isn't gross! Good cocktails and very friendly staff. Will be back 😊
Hi Kelly - Thanks for the review and so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit. We searched high and low for a vegan cheese option that was a good fit, so I am heartened to hear that it gets your approval! See you next time and thanks. Jo
Beautiful ambient atmosphere. The laneway it’s on is quiet, CLEAN and beautiful (especially in sunset). You’ll love this place.
Joshua! Thanks for this awesome review, we love our laneway too (Footscray's very best we think!) - Thanks for your visit and look forward to welcoming you back next time. Jo
I love Sally’s - due to Covid and a move to country Vic it’s been a few years between visits. However it’s still the same DTE, cozy place to meet friends, with great food & service. Cheers guys
Thanks so much for your review and for visiting us again! So glad to hear that you once again enjoyed your time with us. Cheers!
Great night and great food. Thank you so much guys
Thanks for the great review Mathew - so glad to hear you enjoyed it.
Best vegan and vegetarian pizza. The warm olives are delicious. They also do AMAZING non-alcoholic mocktails which is so nice.
Thanks Nicole - so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us! Look forward to welcoming you back next time. Jo
Trivia was great with Matty as the host. Food was good and service was quick and convenient with the online ordering system.
~Thanks for your great review - Hope to see you back again soon!
The best pizza in the west, if not all of Melbourne.
Thanks Sarah - what a lovely review! See you on your next visit
Everything was great except the gluten free pizza. Quite disappointing, was not tasty and was undercooked and a terrible consistency. One of the worse bases I’ve had. My friends pizzas looked excellent, and I had very high expectations for here, but was quite disappointed. The service, interior and drinks were great however (although a tad pricey for what they were).
Hi Lily I am sorry to hear that your experience was not great in terms of your Gluten Free Pizza - we spent considerable time at the outset in regards to finding a great option for customers with Gluten Intolerance and we have had great feedback over the years as to how suitable and tasty these are for a GF option. In this instance, I am sorry it did not meet your expectations - however yes, being a GF product, it will be different to our usual pizzas. Thank you for your feedback.
As per every visit to Back Alley Sally's, everything was great. Fabulous staff & great food
Over priced boring pizza. Staff were bland and too cool to provide good customer service. All orders are online and they ask for a tip! But we basically served ourself. Will never go back.
Beautiful food, staff were really polite and helpful. Lovely way to spend my birthday. Thanks
It was an alright night. Not the usual atmosphere we've had. Orders were all over the show. Booked for a table inside got seated outside. Considering the current situation it was a pleasant night.
Love this place. Made a last minute booking for NYE. Went with my family 2A + 3K.
Loved the autonomous food and beverage ordering via the app. Pizzas are so good and the nachos were amazing!
The pizza menu has a few unique varieties and all are reliably tasty.
Great setup in a hidden location.
Love it, food was amazing and the staff are so lovely. great atmosphere, I was worried about parking because of location but parking was also perfect!
Cant wait to go back again :)
Very over priced food.
Also the wait staff were eager for us to leave at 9pm on a Sunday. Was disappointing.
