Great menu, fab pizzas, nothing was too much trouble. All pizzas were so tasty and full of flavour, antipasti superb, profiteroles sublime

The pizza was very good but the pasta and meat were really only average. It was not bad, but it was not very good either. The service was nice and very fast but the food they delivered tasted warmed up and mediocre. The pizza was pretty good though. I would recommend this place for a quick pizza but not for... More

Food was just ok but the place (and their dishes) did not have a particular character, although its location is key and perfect (it could be double better). And although it also offers dishes from Napoli, these were not the best I tasted. We tried the "fried pizza" from Napoli as a starter (too oily, not nice bread, not fresh... More

Our hotel front desk man, who tended to look down is nose at us, recommended this place to us. We asked him to make us reservations, a must on Saturday night, and left not knowing what kind of a place he thought worthy of his praise. They had very good pizza. We sat outside and loved watching the people go... More

Hot day in May I ordered a big salad and my boyfriend a pizza "ortichella". The vegetables in my salad and the cheese were incredibly fresh especially the tomatoes (finally REAL tomatoes), the pizza war really tasty, the quality of the bread also impressive. An extra point for the friendly personnel, service and clean restaurant. The location, in the heart... More

Staff is pleasant and helpful. There was a Television for football which was great Place is lively and good place to hang around with friends and family. My son loved the Fried pizza( a must try). Weekends may get crowded, so reserving in advance will help. Reasonable prices but has a EUR 2 coperto!

This seemed to be a casual place for locals. The interior decor is clean but unflattering - more like a works canteen than a restaurant. That said, things move along briskly and efficiently, and the pizza I had was standardly good. A decent change if you'd like a respite from fine dining without compromising too much on quality.

We had dinner at this restaurant. Staff was friendly and helpful and food was ok. Note that this is a Napolitan restaurant, offering some local specialties, but it is not a local restaurant. Main negative: very noisy!

We wanted to get some Italian pizza, but were disappointed with the food. No consideration for kids, no special menus for them. Also no juice, just limo or water for the kids... I wouldn't recommend this for families!

Quite a nice place to go for a late evening dinner. The Pizza has a thin, crispy texture and tastes really good. The baverages are a bit more expensive than usual but you get 0.66l which in the end turns out to be a good price.
