Nothing really stands out here but nothing is a turn off except that it seems to close early if it doesn't have customers. The ice cream is good, the paninis so-so, and the pizza, well, go to a pizzeria. Stick with gelato

We stopped by for a pizza and left really full! The crust was crispy and tasted amazing. The toppings tasted fresh and had a lot on it. My daughter got the pepperoni pizza, but it was a little spicy. But she at the rest easily.

Just a short walk from our hotel we loved this place. The gelato was fabulous and we had great service too. The pizza smelled so good. But we couldn't eat another bite. I would definitely go back.

Pizza was good, sandwiches were so-so but gelato is AMAZING. The cielo flavor, made with balsamic vinegar is so unique - never tasted anything like it. Stelina, with caramel and almonds, is delicious.

I had 2 slices of cheese pizza and a Nutella latte. The pizza was thin crust style. The slices were generous and tasted great. The Nutella latte was amazing! The dessert display had several delicious looking cake slices. I should have had one.

We stopped at this pizza place because it was convenient to the hotel I stayed at and although the pizza was edible there was not enough sauce and had very little flavor. No matter how convenient to the hotel, I will not eat there again.
