A good thin crust pie is hard to find but they do it well here. The topping choices are nice but the artichokes were a little stringy. The service and ambiance was excellent.

Wood fired pizza, thin-style crust. Pizzas were both very good. Good toppings, etc. I thought maybe the MACELLAIO would be a bit more flavorful. It was good, but not crazy good. The PARADISO was better, I thought. the crust was really really good, however.

Nice place for dinner. Cosy decoration and friendly people. There is a pizza without tomato sauce, with pesto instead, try it, I loved it. It is better to make a reservation, otherwise you will wait but not for long.

A friendly place with decent pizzas. The wine list is limited but adequate and reasonably priced. My wife had the meatball appetizer as her entree. She noted that they were good, and the sauce was flavorful. My meat pizza was ok, but WAY too garlicky...More

TripAdvisor told me this was in the top 3 pizzerias to visit, and the closest pizzeria by far. The pizza is excellent and the drizzle of olive oil they put on just before serving is excellent, I'd go back in the morning!
