Located near the old city centre, this place was obviously in demand by locals, as we had to line up to get in on a weekday night, despite heavy rain.

Very good and large, delicious pistachio cream. We've been there on Friday evening and it was really crowded, we took the last free table. Service was very good and we waited for pizza only around 5 minutes.

This is where locals go and the lucky tourists might find! They do have English menus, and the staff is attentive and helpful. My pizza was the biggest one I'd ever headband it was very good! The variety of dishes and pizzas is quite impressive!
