I love the pizza at my local, Neighborhood Pizza. In a converted warehouse behind the IGA on Scarborough Beach Road in Mouth Hawthorn is possibly the best pizzeria I’ve eaten at in Perth, ever. I’ve blogged about it before also and told all my Perth friends about it. Thin crisp bases cooked in a proper wood fired pizza oven and topped with just a few simple flavour combinations from quality produce. The pizza is authentic Italian and I love that.
During a recent visit with friends who were excited to experience the pizza I’d been talking non-stop about for ages, I have to say I was disappointed. Not in the pizza, that was awesome. Not in the atmosphere, the place was buzzing. It was the noise. Deafening noise. Even though we were sitting close to each other huddled around a coffee table trying to lessen the impact of the clanking background noise, we could barely hear what one another was saying.
It was all too much to bear for my pregnant friend who suggested we leave as soon as we’d finished our pizza. We did just that, taking our half drunk BYO bottle of wine with us and regrouped at our place where we could have a conversation without shouting and getting a head ache.
It is such a shame that the noise levels ruin what could be a great pizza experience. The need some soft furnishings, plants, or better still, some experts to sort it out for them. It has the potential to be the best pizza place in the city.
