Fancy a free lunch today? You’re in luck

A POPULAR Northern Rivers restaurant chain is today celebrating its birthday and customers and pizza lovers are well and truly being rewarded.

Co owner Cameron Austin announced on Facebook that Mr Mozzarellas at Ballina and Lismore were holding a free pizza day until 3pm.

“The response has been fantastic since opening,” Mr Austin told The Northern Star.
