Old Town Italy - the very word evokes a sense of history and a portal back to a time when life itself was defined by a seemingly more romantic set of values. Romantic values based on a simpler, slower and ‘better quality’ life. At Old Town Italy these values, as old fashion as they may be, still stand. Foundations, built slowly, forged by skill, fortitude, passion and dedication. It is about slowing things down, celebrating ethics, preserving standards and rediscovering quality. There was a time when a visit to your local grocery store was more of a social event than a chore. Where the butcher knew your preferences and the baker greeted you by name. A place where product knowledge, a hearty smile and sound advice was given freely. Old Town Italy’s mission is to restore these qualities and rekindle those experiences. After all, our body is our sanctuary, temple and the only one we have. Old Town Italy is an authentic Italian market where you can shop, talk, eat and learn.

    More/different pizza toppings would be great, but overall we had a great experience.

    The pizza making experience was a lot of fun and a really good evening. The staff were friendly and attentive, which was impressive as the restaurant and experience was fully booked. The chefs were superb and had a good sense of humour and Simon the manager was working the floor making sure everything ran smoothly and everyone was satisfied. I can recommend this as a great experience for date night, a girls night or family night. I was also very happy that they were able to include non-alcoholic options into the experience. It's just a great experience. The ambience of the restaurant was also really lovely and being able to leave and go look at the Christmas lights topped off the whole evening.

    for my 1st time experience, it was absolutely brilliant! I would maybe suggest letting us do a dessert pizza too (happy to pay more for the tickets) and maybe some more options for the toppings on the pizza's As I'm typing this I was already buying tickets to try the Pasta making too! :-) PLEASE HAVE MORE OF THESE!!!
