Staff was great, food was great, could do without the wasps though. I understand we were on a patio but it was difficult to eat with 4-5 wasps flying around!

Great place and atmosphere. Been here many times. We all had pizza and they are remarkable. Service, someone must have called in sick or something since it took over 30 to get our food. Unfortunate since service was fine on previous visits. Thankfully the food and atmosphere outweighed service in this visit.

We arrived a few minutes early and ordered drinks and then scanned the menu and placed an order for 2 of their designer pizzas.. We chatted for quite a while until my wife ran out of wine and said " Wonder where the Pizzas are?" It had been an hour! Very shortly after a manager appeared to apologize and say that somewhere our order was lost/missed and were now in the oven and the meal would be complimentary as a result. He also offered an appetizer and another round of drinks. By his "taking ownership" and admitting their error he has kept two long time clients , who live closer to the new Findlay Creek location ,very happy. The food and ambience are always good and mistakes will happen but they were first rate at taking credit

The burger was great- nice touch with the fried pickle. They are very receptive to ingredient changes. Salad side had a visually pleasing array of fresh cut veggies on a decent portion of lettuce. The only thing of concern was that most of the diners entered without masks. I will be inquiring about this problem that was prevalent at Lansdowne.

This place is NOT sanitary and just doesn't give a crap. They provided no crayons for the children meanwhile other places like Milestones do. Is it that difficult to spend 50cents on crayons that children can keep? Also, the table had pizza sauce stains on it and it was not sanitized when we sat down. No placemats, not even paper ones. Furthermore, the napkins had blonde waitress hairs on them. Although the pizza was good, I didn't feel this place was clean at all and will gladly go to Moxies or Milestones or even Joey's for better food and service.

The restaurant is well set up and follows all necessary safety protocols. The pizzas are interesting and tasty, and in spite of our current weather, their patio is fairly shady and was bearable!

Placed on bad table in very close proximity to others. Chicken parmigiana was over done, dry and must have been sitting for a long time under the heat lamps.

Really great staff, really really great food, haven’t been out to eat in a while and this was an amazing first time back to a restaurant. Highly recommend for dates because the pizzas are the perfect sharing size. Plan on bringing my family here for a get together once we can have larger groups!

The ambience of the place was the best thing I would say. We sat on the patio, and the setting was really nice. However, the food was meh. The calamari definitely didn't taste fresh and the pizza was not flavorful. The guy who welcomed us was really though and overall I would say the experience was okay.

Great service! Food was delicious at a great price. We went on a Thursday and pizza was two for $25!

The host and the manager followed up with us because initially we could find the reservation from open table. As it turns out it was listed under my former name! Would most certainly return for more amazing pizza!

I had the pizza with basil and cheese. It was overcook and had almost no sauce and cheese. The bit that contain cheese and sauce was very good but there was not many.

The chicken wings and calamari were very good.

Thanks.

We had lunch on Family Day. The place was full, we were promptly seated. Our waitress was very busy but did a good job on apologizing for the long wait for our food. We understood and appreciated her apologies. My husband has the fish & chips which he rated as good. Unfortunately, my Piri-piri chicken was dry and hard. When our server asked how was the meal, I was honest. She explained that they keep the thick, juicy chicken breast when it is served on a bun and the thin ones when ordered with the lettuce wrap. I certainly don't have any problems with a smaller piece but please do not cook it until it is hard and dry. Again the server was apologetic even though she was not the cook.
I think people should stick with the pizzas if they want to ensure a great meal which is what we had on our first visit. Unsure if we will return as there are many choices of restaurants in this area.

We ordered the calamari to share and it was good, not over cooked but the light batter was a little too light (it didn't stay on) and the deep fried thin lemon slices were odd. My friend ordered a pepperoni pizza with basil and roasted garlic. It was good but there was too much of the garlic and it overpowered the pizza. She would order it again but skip the garlic. I ordered the Hot Diavola. The ricotta cheese made the pizza very soggy and the soppressata was not spicy enough for me (and there wasn't much of it). I would not order it again. Overall I found the meal just ok and the price was a little high given what we ate (although most places are overpriced these days). I'd probably try it again but it wouldn't be my first choice as a restaurant.
