Pizza is Federico Blondi's strong suit. Along with his wife, Sandra, Blondi opened this colourful Italian spot in 2012. Originally from Umbria, the green heart of Italy, Blondi has made a big hit with his roscón pizza, named for its distinctive ring shape. Aside from the usual toppings, you can order this and any pizza to suit your cravings. One of the most popular is the scamorza (a smoked mozzarella) with potato and rosemary, and another is with Taleggio cheese, pear and rocket. Also highly recommended is the lasagna or 'all'amatriciana bucatini', thick and spicy spaghetti, made with the love of an Italian mother who thinks you're too thin – not to be missed. Book at weekends and for lunch as no one else wants to miss it either.

It was delicious. The location is small and decorated in a romantic, fun, eclectic style. Candles at the tables and different art on the walls with creative colorful pillows and chairs. Had two pizzas, pepperoni and one with arugula, ham and taigello cheese (not sure of spelling) it was great. Pepperoni is spicy, my cheesy pizza was creamy and mild. Had a hot chocolate molten cake, wine and the bruschetta and it was very well priced, amazing really. I really enjoyed it. It wasn't very busy when I was there but the owner was very nice, I also saw some people getting pizza to go so that's an option as well.
