With San Antonio’s being about a week old and the new pizza store in town, people will ask whether it’s just another pizza store in an already saturated market. The answer is no, they’re actually better. The pizza makers here have perfected the art of the pizza crust and combined with quality ingredients, have come up so many flavour combinations, you’ll be scratching your head as to which to decide. If pizza’s aren’t your fancy, they also have a range of burgers, salads and desserts to satisfy your appetite.
Tonight, we ordered two pizzas to share; The Mediterranean and The Spaniard. Both pizzas arrived 15 minutes after ordering and were well presented.
The Mediterranean pizza had sundried tomatoes, salami, mushroom, roasted capsicum, olives, chorizo and bocconcini. The mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, roasted capsicum and olives combined to give this pizza so much depth. The chorizo and salami were of a good quality and the ingredient combination was a real winner.
The Spaniard pizza had lamb, Spanish onion, sundried tomato and chorizo. The lamb was lean, tender and well marinated. The chorizo had a distinct smokiness about it which worked well with the intense and concentrated flavours of the sundried tomatoes.
The toppings were generous on both pizzas and the base was thin and consistent throughout. The crust was firm enough to hold all the toppings but not crunchy enough to break any teeth. The underside of the pizzas were slightly oily, but that was due to the amount of cheese they put on the pizzas.
The store itself is located on the eastern side of The Parade, away from all the crowds. The decor is modern and stylish, and seats about 25 people. The staff here were very friendly and accommodating, and the atmosphere was cosy and relaxed. The service was excellent, with drinks being delivered promptly and plates cleared as we finished. The pricing is competitive and what you would expect from any gourmet pizza place.
