Top shelf pizza made by people who understand the principles behind a true Neapolitan pizza.

I love the food and have been eating here for a while. However, I have noticed lately that the service is getting a little unsatisfactory. It took 20 mins to call a waiter to take our order and another 25 mins (after asking 3 times) to get the bill.
I will however come back as I love the food and it’s good value.

The food is brilliant. The service is terrible however. We had orders come out wrong because the waitress chose not to write down the order (not sure what that is about). Also, we waited 10-15 minutes before we were offered table water or even menus. Then ignored for another 15 minutes. Shame the service is so poor but yes the food is very good so they have the most important part right!

Food was great. Service on the night we went was a little slow (we had to chase staff to take out order and we had to ask for our bill twice). Once we had order the food came out really quickly and tasted great.

Nice dinner catching up with friends.... We enjoyed our meals (3 pizzas and 1 pasta) and I had some adjustments to consider regarding some allergies but that was accomodated nicely by the helpful waitress.
Only comment from the evening was the pizzas ending up pretty soggy by the 2nd half..., maybe a touch too thin-crust (depends how quick you scoff your food perhaps), but all tasted great. None overly pricey either. Would go again!

One of the best wood fire pizza places I’ve been too, great customer service, me and my partner were seated immediately on arrival and the food was out 5-10 minutes after ordering

First time to La Bufula. We wanted a restaurant close to the airport and were unfamiliar with the area. It took a while to find it on a wet evening but were very happy when we finally saw the restaurant. The place was lively, good food, pizzas and pastas and carafes of wine, half litre for 17 dollars. The total cost was 240 dollars for 5 of us, with two starters to share, five mains, three carafes of wine and two waters so was close to 50 dollars per person.

A little too expensive for what its is. Family of four ordering two pizzas and two pastas, a couple of drinks and paid $160.00. Great if passing by but would not make the effort to get there.

Tasty and fresh wood oven pizza. The service we experienced was fantastic and all staff were very friendly. Small wine selection though. Great find close to the hotel I was staying at and I would visit again on my next visit.

This was lunch with friends. Well presented bistro on the first floor (lift is available) and it has a lovely french bistro feeling. All the cliches...french music, staff and decoration... so good so far. Typical menu with escargot, pate, foue gras, duck, beef....good selection.
Extensive wine list with local and french wines and champagne and Absinth!! We had tar tare, mussels, foie gras, steak, duck, crepe suzette and Absinthe. Service is great...staff are friendly. The food was wonderful, well presented and appertising. Would recommend it and will be back!

Pizzas are good in general, they would be better if they would let the crust cook.
Ruccola salad needed more dressing.
The nuttela pizza needs more nutella and certainly more strawberries.

Absolutely amazing experience from the moment we entered the restaurant through to paying and leaving! Staff were fantastic, friendly and accommodating to our small children. Meals were absolutely delicious and brilliantly cooked and presented. Only wish we had found the restaurant sooner. Thanks for a great experience!

Simply outstanding! Fantastic food & ambience. Perfect setting. Great acoustics as wasn't to loud at all. When the owner can sit down with you and have a chat about social topics as sport, food etc then you know you are made to feel welcome.
