IF YOU HAVE TIME TO READ ONLY MAXIMUM 10 POINTS:
1. Place is good primarily for strongly olive flavoured Italian type(wood fired, thin crust) pizzas. - Try "OTF special pizza" pizza.
2. I recommend this place primarily for takeway or home delivery due to lack of service.
3. Taste is good, value for money for Italian cuisine.
4. 2 main course dishes enough for 3 people.
5. Blueberry Cheese Cake dessert though expensive is something I would also recommend from here.

Had gone to this place on a weekday night.
The place was crowded even on a weekday night at 10PM. Almost all the tables were full unlike other eateries in the vicinity. Most of the crowd appeared to be young couples who walked in in shorts and pyjama-like night trousers.
Interior was somewhat cheap like a cheaper version of a regular CCD or Barista Cafe(but less glitzy) but with a nice Swiss clock to give it a slight European cafe feel.
The overriding dominant theme in the food was the consistent dominance of Olives(and Olive Oil) in everything and a consequent strong Mediterranean or Southern European taste to the food.
The place's primary speciality is it's regular Italian type (wood fired and thin crust) pizzas.
I had the :
Pizza de Fungi, Pepperoni Pizza, OTF Special Pizza, Chicken Lasagna and the Blueberry CheeseCake.
The pizzas were nice but extremely Italian in their taste which I did not like. For me, such strong use of Olives didn't taste as nicely due to my personal love for stronger cheese flavours instead.
The cheese used was authentic but one of the milder non fragrant varieties.
If I have to choose one pizza from what I tried above, I would recommend the multimeat OTF special pizza for the blend of meat fusions it brings.
Chicken Lasagna tasted good, but was nto as well done and as crunchy as I like it. - It appeared to be excessively fluidish.
Blueberry Cheese Cake was really nice though with all the flavours melted into one smooth consistent aboslutely mouth waterning cheese cake. Would recommend this. - Am guessing their other desserts might be really nice too given how this one was really good.
Portions for main course were good enough for 3 people if ordering 2 dishes and some dessert. Dessert though was really small in quantity and should be ordered individually for everyone.
Costs are reasonable for main course items. Appeared somewhat on the higher side for dessert.
There were only one or two trained staff I think with remaining being temporary staff. The orders being taken by the temporary staff (not in white shirt and black trousers) were frequently misplaced or forgotten altogether. - Try to get hold of the trained staff for taking your order.
Furthermore, the layout of the seating is such that there is an annexe for people to sit in which is hidden away from the sight of the main cashier seating area....- Avoid sitting in this area, as the trained staff do not pay particular attention to this area as the owner too sits only in the cashier area and keeps watch only on areas visible from there. If you sit here, the time for your order to get taken will be very long and similarly too for trying to attract attention of the waiting staff to inquire about your order. ( Do remember to inquire periodically about your order, to ensure that your order is actually being prepared and has not been forgotten or delivered to someone else like it was in my case.)
I would recommend this place primarily for HomeDelivery or TakeAway consequently.
