Love this place, great with kids and the pizza is always fantastic. Best pizza in Noosa for sure! Make sure you book as it does get very busy even on weeknights.

Amazing pizza. Good help with a pram. Can be a bit noisy for a baby.
Recommend for them to clean their floors better!!!

Great fun. Friendly attentive staff. A little on the expensive side for a quick in and out family meal. An early happy hour for young families might be an idea.
Thanks

The overall experience was wood however we had to wait for our main 45 min because “takeaway” orders had priority. Not fair on us as we had to rush because another booking was coming behind us

Great gluten free pizza, salad, prawns and delicious cocktails!
Our drinks order was forgotten but the waitress did apologise and they were great when they arrived.
It was a shame the band was so loud as were couldn’t have a conversation at our table without yelling as we had older guests with us and they found it difficult to hear.
But first and foremost greaaaaat pizza!

Loved the entrance which was the start to the great ambiance of the evening. Great decor. Staff very efficient, happy and helpful. My adult children loved the music selection. Cocktail selections were great and really enjoyed them. Very happy to see Vegan options on the menu which we took advantage of, they were absolutely delicious. Overall very impressed and would definitely return.

Outstanding pizza. The sourdough base is absolutely delicious. So good that their most basic offering - a Margherita loaded with fresh basil - was just as popular with our table as some of river more elaborate options. Friendly staff and quick service. We are fairly picky and normally can find fault but struggled to here.

Do not order the Gluten Free pizza. It comes out half cooked and terrible. It was sent back for a regular crust. Which was ok.
We also hade to wait 45 min for our salad.

Excellent service and great food. Our Swiss waitress was lovely and attentive. The gelato was delicious and beautifully presented. We booked a standard table and got a high table but no probs. Beer on tap would have made it perfect. Will definitely revisit!

There is nothing good about their pizzas which is all we tried so we confine our comments to that. 3 different pizzas all inedible due to tasteless base, yucky cheese and stingy toppings....$6 for a glass of coke that didn’t taste like Coke....very poor value overall. Wanted to love this place but cannot understand all of the rave reviews. Go somewhere else.

Nice venue upstairs off the Main Street. Definitely book ahead if you have kids- we got to skip ahead of a very long queue. Excellent pizzas, best base ever, although the buffalo mozzarella was a bit wasted on the kids and we had to pick it off. Service was a little slow at every stage.

Cocktails were 90% ice so two sips and there finished...
Pizza was burnt and you couldn’t eat the crust, which is usually the best part.
Maybe due to the fact it was so busy quality had dropped, pretty disappointing as it used to be amazing pizza.
On a good note ice cream was definitely delicious though that’s not why we went there!!

Great atmosphere, nice menu. Unfortunately Burrata was out so we took mozzarella as a starter. Mozzarella with flat bread an San Daniele. The SAN Daniele was rolled, only 5 slices, too thick. Not really tasty. The platter came with mixed pickles; strange combination. Pizza (Shrimp) was very tasty. Also the Drinks. Fancy but good.
