I haven't been to the place for 2 years. It used to be our favourite pizzeria. I had a pizza tonight with my wife and I was very disappointed to see that a napolitana certified joint has become a vegan pizzeria. Very blunt taste for someone like me who likes his plain traditional pizza with proper mozzarella cheese!! I would... More

This used to be a pizza institution - many memories were had with Gigi pizza...now it's gone vegan! Well at least since the last time I visited. Firstly nothing to say it's vegan, probably wouldn't have gone in if I knew. Secondly, toppings were falling off the base because there was nothing to bind the ingredients. Thirdly, prices have remained... More

Dined here in May 2016 but wanted to take some friends here to experience vegan pizzas. Once again we had a very enjoyable meal. Friends couldn't believe that they were eating vegan food.

We did not realised it was a vegan place until we were sitting at the table and reading the menu. I wonder how they could join the Napoli pizza association without using any mozzarella! Anyway we have it a try but it was nothing to remember. One of the most tasteless napoletan I have ever had. The dough was quite... More

I love Gigis. I went there last night with my partner and mum, and she said that it reminded her of childhood memories of her favourite authentic pizza (the tomato, garlic and oregano one). The dough is to die for, the desserts, well I have never had such delicious vegan desserts before. A must eat

Love the pizza here, the base is so light and fluffy. Vegan toppings are so tasty and well-chosen! Lovely waiters and exceptional service. Will come back again and again.

This is the most amazing restaurant I have ever been to - without exaggeration. The pizzas are phenomenal and all the entrees and desserts are to die for. Their wine is lovely and the cocktails are delicious. The service is also super friendly. It's reasonably priced and the serving sizes are great. It has such a cosy, intimate ambience, you... More

Vegan Pizza that is not obvious on their website. Pizza base has great flavor, filling is minimal & no cheese (vegan). Service is friendly & quick. Wouldn't hurry back. Been there done that. A bit pricey for what you get. Funky building & vibe

We went with a voucher we had won. Loved the fact they are vegan but the experience was a bit disappointing. We waited outside in the line for about 20 minutes, I think restaurants that don't take bookings are totally up themselves. As we went to sit down I was accosted by a employee who said "well you know we... More
