Critic's review

Diane de Beer

Food
Their stated aim is to create affordable yet quality pizzas in this neighbourhood. The roots of their pizzas are Italian and there are many familiar names like Siciliana, Regina, Margarita – all the staples, in fact. But then they also represent a local palate with selections like the Meat Lover (salami, ham and mince), the Jo-Burger (potato slices, asparagus and parsley) and the Woodstock with biltong, avo, roasted peppers and chilli-balsamic glaze, including the expected tomato base and mozzarella. The base is thin and crisp, the fillings generous, the presentation on wooden boards sassy and you can order different fillings on each half, always a bonus. They’re young in the game and will have to add shine to their sweet options, but they’ve hit the ground running.

Drinks
They’re waiting for their liquor licence, so for the moment it's BYO. On the soft drink side, they’re experimenting with iced teas, cordials and anything their especially young clientele might adopt.

Service
There were a few hiccups but the staff and owners are young and quick to take instruction to get things running smoothly.

Ambience
The name suggests musical roots. One of the Kotze brother owners is also a muso, who's known to kick off with a musical vibe on some nights. Much of the restaurant can be opened up during Pretoria’s beautiful summer nights, and even in chillier times when closed up, there’s an easy, laid-back feel. Graffiti-like drawings on the wall feature icons from Woodstock including Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin and Santana, with a contemporary urban style.

And…
The youthfulness of the owners translates to an energy, an adventurous approach and an ambience that suits the young yet embraces older generations as well.

  • Excellent thin crust woodfired pizza. Definitely not the run of the mill toppings. One of the best vegetarian pizzas I have had. Would not have imagined roasted vegetables could taste that good on a pizza. The SAPS pizza was also very tasty but alas no feta as advertised on it when we got home and as a personal choice I would have liked a little more pulled pork. Service very friendly. The salted caramel shake not completely there yet, more milky than caramel. I think these hiccups can be sorted easily and I will be back soon. Gorgeous stoep.
