Excellent pizza and real Italian food! Incredible!!! Freshly baked bread and excellent red wine (negramaro tenuta Albano Carrisi) at very reasonable price. And the cherry on the top is the "tiramisù"! Simply delicious and possibly better than in Italy. Grazie mille!

This place is a bakery and also serves Pizza in the evening. The bread is really good, however you have to come early to get one. The pizza was amazing! They have a bunch of different pizzas to chose, also a nutella Pizza.
