The menu is limited but what it does it does well. Rather than walking back into Oxford on a rainy day we had an evening meal here. It is mainly Pizzas and my husband and I shared a large Pizza and Caesar salad which was all we needed. We also had desert and a drink each. The atmosphere was quiet allowing conversation with pleasant low background music. The service was good and the meal good value. Social distancing and COVID protocols were good.

Small but nice dining area with bar. Very Pizza Parlour with granite top tables. Italian meatball pizza, garlic bread, fig walnut and blue cheese salad, water, 2 peroni and espresso- £28.80. And couldn't finish the meal between us. Thoroughly recommend.
