    Wonderful service, crazy handy for the theatre. Great pizza and lots of lovely staff who made us feel very relaxed, despite being a table of 9. Thanks! Will be back!

    The food was pretty good, menu had a wide range of pizza options/toppings. Management was very unkind and unhelpful. We had a reservation, and there was no time limit on the table. However, we were rushed to order drinks, and were told to hurry to order food. Appetizers came out with the meal. I understand when it is busy it is important to turn over tables, however, it created a very uncomfortable ambiance. Waitstaff and bar staff seemed to be treated poorly by management as well, even though they were the most helpful and attentive. Overall, would not return due to poor service and treatment to staff

    Food was fine. Nothing amazing but fine. Service was attentive to the point of harassing us to finish and leave. Constantly asked if we were finished eating and plates and glasses removed before final mouthfuls even swallowed! After 55 minutes at the table (booking stated 90) we were told ‘we need the table back’. We were still finishing drinks and didn’t leave however we found this incredibly rude. They obviously overbook but this isn’t the customers problem. We won’t be back

    Quick bite before the theatre, ideally placed for the Festival Theatre- all you have to do is cross the road. Cocktails & pizza, arrived quickly, very efficient service. Exactly what you need for a pre show

    Having a lovely night with a friend and my 16yr old daughter, pre theatre meal. Good food and having a lovely time until a very rude manager came over to shout at us, very bizarre behaviour and totally unjust! We hadn’t asked for the bill and were clearly getting rushed out of the restaurant, despite no complaining from us….the manager decided to come running over to verbally attack us, stating we are not a Michelin star restaurant, one that you can take your time in and enjoy a dining experience…clearly not! Will never go back or recommend to anyone! Awful!

    Honestly? Easily the best pizza I’ve ever eaten in my life. You could order the most simple one with just tomato sauce, cheese and olive oil and still be blown away. Moreover, it’s far from expensive and the waiters are lovely. Would recommend that place to anyone.

    Lovely food, but olives and starters were brought out some time after the pizzas and sides. Man who brought the food said they hadn't been put through as starters and just kept saying he hadn't taken the order and that management had told them the menu said the "starters" were labelled light bits not starters. I'm guessing this happens fairly frequently, we didn't make a fuss and enjoyed the food but all it needed was someone to say sorry there's been a misunderstanding instead of the staff discussing it between themselves! A lady did come over and finally apologised and gave us 10% off, but the lack of good service by the other staff was disappointing.

    Pizza posto is always the place for me when I am looking for a pizza restaurant, I’ve been multiple times already even on my birthday where Danilo(waiter) sang me happy birthday, never a doubt to come back, last night we had a pizza and a calzone, both really tasty and obviously our amazing service from Danilo.

    Lovely meal before our theatre visit across the road. The Pizza was delicious and glad we decided to split it between the two of us along with some sides and a couple of starters. The mozzarella sticks are closer to logs than sticks! Staff were lovely and attentive but not pushy. We will definitely be back
