Definitely my favorite Pizza venue in all of VIC. We had an amazing Saturday lunch with the whole family, had the staff talk about the food, ingredients, even had some special coffees made for us!

Living in Hampton (Bayside), I have access to many great Pizza venues, but it is always my absolute pleasure to be at DOC. I also own a Pizza shop in Bayside, so know a good Pizza...

Prefer DOC Mornington over DOC inner city, as ambiance of the street, the beach walking distance away etc.

Their deli also sells many of the ingredients used to make their actual Pizzas, and after speaking to the deli staff and Pizza chef, we ended up buying a few bottles of their famous Chilli Olive Oil! Amazing stuff!

Highly recommended to all - IMO EONSSSS ahead of other popular Pizza makers such as Gratis (a not too far second for me, however too mainstream and bit of a gimmick compared to DOC IMO) etc.

Looking forward to dining at DOC again and thanks for hosting us.


Cheers

DOC pizza is always amazing food, but the service was even better in Mornington. All staff were energetic, friendly, attentive, it made for that much better an experience.

The service was absolutely terrible. They literally forgot about us. Forgot to bring us water and half the food we ordered. Waiting 25 mins to be seated, even though we had a booking. I’ve emailed the restaurant to provide feedback and of course never heard back from them. Won’t be returning to this restaurant.

We enjoyed our dinner at Doc. Our waitress was lovely and respectful. The food arrived promptly and full water bottles were brought to our table after we emptied the first one. The pizzas were delicious albeit a little on the bland side. My husband had the Speck pizza which I can really recommend. Even though the waitress who had been serving us from the start was very friendly and attentive, another staff member asked us whether we were finished while we were still eating, which I found a bit intrusive. All in all it was an enjoyable experience though.

Doc is one of our favourite places & we especially love the speck pizzas. We took 2 friends & all 4 of us ordered pizzas. I think they must have been sitting on the bench for too long when they came out of the oven as the cheese had already started to solidify. Just not the same if the cheese isn’t melted & gooey. Shame

Fabulous food, fabulous staff and great service as always. The team at DOC have also followed the COVID-19 guidelines to the letter - well done.

DOC always has great atmosphere and energy - even with fewer tables, the place still has a good buzz.

Have been numerous times and always enjoy. The only issue this time was the amount of people congregating at the entrance - given social distancing requirements etc., think that needs to be better arranged. Also, where was the hand sanitizer?
