    8 hours ago by traceysblog Tried a new pizza place last night with  @lovelifeandlittleones   @sano .pizza is a really nice spot and I really enjoyed the food. It's interior is really cool. It's a lovely mix of casual and fancy. The best thing is it's really inexpensive. €15 will get you the largest pizza on the menu plus a large glass of pinot grigot or a craft beer.

It's in Crumlin on Windmill road and it's €8 for your child to make two pots of slime in any colour they like. It was a good experience - something a bit different.
