We had a great pizza lunch in this restaurant that is located in the center of Leipzig. They specialize in pizza, and they have a very creative approach when it comes to combining ingredients. I took "Surf and turf" pizza, that had big shrimps, slices of beef, aubergine and nice sauce. My wife had a pizza with great tasting fish, fresh asparagus, and wonderful sauce from ripe sweet tomatoes. Both our pizzas came with Caesar salad that was cleverly combined into the portion. Great food, and good valua for the money!

We had to wait approximately 45 minutes for the pizza. The food was good, maybe a bit dry. The servants were not too service minded, and had poor English language skills, but that is not uncommon for Germany. The pizza menus is unusual, but inspiring.

After spending whole day sightseeing, this was a perfect spot to end my day in Leipzig. Further away from busier centre made eating outside much more pleasurable. The pizza itself was great and big. First time using scissors to cut it, though :) nice and quick service too :)

It was nice but not very impressed. We had better pizza’s. For a quick bite and a drink it’s not bad. Very busy at dinner time and service was a bit slow.

This place gets some great reviews and I was excited to go.. unfortunately it didn’t quite live up to the hype.

The design of the restaurant is fun, trendy and original. The vibe is hip, and you feel like you’re somewhere original and special. So far, so good. The service was also friendly and warm.

The actual choice of pizza, however, was quite limited. There was instead an emphasis on several “totally off the wall” offerings involving eg apple, Brie, lingonberry and onions; or chicken, mango, mango chutney, peanuts and red onions. This smacks a bit of gimmickery and would be fine if the usual offerings were there (Margherita literally was the only one that any regular pizza eater would recognise). The choice for vegetarians was incidentally also very limited indeed, so holding themselves out as “veggie friendly” is pushing it.

I asked for a Margherita with prawns, which did they produce. It was very thin, long, served with a gimmicky big pair of scissors, and unfortunately very thin on toppings to the point where it was mainly eating crispy pizza base. At best it can be described as average - as can be seen from the photo. It was just really not special in any way.

The price was a bit of a surprise though, when the bill came: €6.90 for the pizza, and a whacking €5.90 for the added prawns, thereby almost doubling it.

Dessert was similarly average and limited in choice. The menu says something about their coming with their “menagerie of choices” to your table and you choose what you want. The actual selection was three little puddings in glass cups, none of which looked at all appealing - and the one I choose was again really average.

I wanted to like this place - and I didn’t dislike it - but I feel they have some more work to do to get the concept quite right.
