Wood Fired Pizzas

By will roper 10 September 2007 48

On Saturday evening we decided that pizzas would be nice, so we checked the website menu for a wood fired pizza purveyor in Civic. The menu had prices, so I had an expectation that the price would be around $42. The woman at the counter told me that the price was $47. When I pointed out the discrepancy and that the website prices were lower, she explained that the website was in the process of being updated and the advertised prices were no longer correct. When I showed little sympathy, she explained that they really couldn’t afford to sell pizzas at the advertised prices. On that basis, I decided not to press the issue and left the freshly made pizzas with her. We then decided to patronise the wood fired pizza purveyor at Red Hill shops, where the prices are as advertised (albeit, not on the web).

What sort of Mickey Mouse organisation fails to deliver a product at the advertised price and offers the feeble excuse that the menu is going to be updated? Have they realised that Canberra pizza afficionados are so compliant that they will pay at higher than advertised prices?

The home page shows that they last updated their website on 13 August 2007.

Did anyone buy three slightly stale pizzas in Civic on Saturday night (8 Sep)?

What’s Your opinion?

Have to agree with el on the comment on APK. Once ordered some chicken dish as it was about the only thing on the menu without dairy. It came out with a massive swirl of ranch dressing a big blop of sour cream. Being lactose intolerant I requested a fresh meal as the menu didn’t state it was served that way, that it was meant to have BBQ sauce or something..

I was then quite rudely told if I wanted a fresh meal I would have to pay for both of them. As i didn’t state at the time of ordering my dietry requests. Pretty much told them where they could stick it as i didn’t get it as the menu stated and scraped off the cream and sauce.

When it comes down to food allergies – I feel i have the right to complain… When it comes to a lousy $5… Get over it. You probably pay more for a cup of coffee than that.

Chocko, I eat out plenty thank you very much, and I only had this seafood basket once. What can I say other than it wasn’t worth the price I paid for it. Not terrible, not fantastic. I could have gone to any Cafe and had a better seafood basket for half the price. If Woodstock are so fresh then why do they use canned mushrooms on their Pizza’s?. I rate La Musica E in Belconnen higher for wood fired pizzas. In saying that, I was impressed with the service at Woodstock.

Sorry if my opinion offends you, but I don’t think that expensive meal automatically makes it a great meal.

You obviously don’t eat out much Himgo if you think Woodstock has the most overpriced Seafood Baskets on the Planet!! At least they freshly crumb their seafood to order and it’s not the frozen processed crap you usually get. Stick to the Tradies Club!!

The same amount of GhG contributed by a firm misrepresenting the cost of a pizza thus forcing a customer to abandon the product ?

Given that the customer is a bee’s fart away from Garema Place food precinct, its pedantry to think in terms of GhG, as the customer would have simply walked to the next store.

Roper, most new posters on RA get flamed on their first thread. (pardon the wood-fired pun).

I’m more concerned about how many tonnes of greenhouse gas Will contributed to the atmosphere by ordering pizzas that he then didn’t end up eating???? 😉

I fully agree with you Roper and I applaud you standing up for your rights
Its on $5 here or its only $3 there well all those SMALL amounts add up, Yes I may be a tight arse but I work hard for my money if a company QUOTES me a price then that’s the price if they want to change it at the time of delivering the services then I’m not interested
Its the principal of the matter
On saying that I’m sure I’ll get a lot of over paid self righteous public servants mocking my way of thinking well I say to those people if you get a container and every few days just put a COUPLE of dollars in there and after 12 months add it up

then see if you don’t worry about $5

I would have just sucked it up and paid the 5 bucks. If i was told on the phone that the pizza’s would be $42 and when i arrived i was charged $47, THEN i would complain. But anyone with a shred of common sense would know that websites cannot be trusted as they are rarely updated, or they would have confirmed over the phone what the final price was.

I really don’t see why you got sand in your vagina over such a small thing (and obviously it annoyed you, otherwise you wouldn’t have posted about it).
