Great senza glutine pizza, would highly recommend it. Reasonably priced and friendly customer service. Delicious red wine which is paired in the menu depending on what you are eating. Greeted by a friendly man as we entered the restaurant.

Nice mixed starters. Good pizzas, nice staff. Only down side was I was told they don't sell a house wine by the litre or mezza. Its the first time I have been told this in my 30+ visits to Italy.

We are very sorry for your opinion. We don't think that we deserve it. Gluten-free pizza is not a real pizza. It's a surrogate. The pizza is made with flour, according to the rules of real napoletan pizza. The gluten-free one uses another dough and...More

It is not a traditional Italian Pizzeria, but it is worth to try. Restaurant is a bit noisy when full of people, it is in the Italian style to not eat silently... Quality of service and quality of food and drinks is very good, if...More
