This place was buzzing with locals and tourists when we visited - despite this, service was quite fast. The house wine (red) was not amazing but ok quality (had the Chianti). We had the lovely Pici handmade pasta with mushrooms and tomato. Very tasty indeed (and vegan unless you add Parmesan)! Also had a side salad and the bill was... More

For a quick order of pizza, very hard to beat. Nice selection of choices. The crust wasn't as thick with olive oil as most Italian pizzas and offered a less-intrusive taste. Friendly atmosphere and small but decent wine, olive oil etc. selection for take away. Great location near the main piazza on the way to the lift to the old... More

We had a pizza and some pastas. The pasta was really bad, we couldn't eat it and the pizza was so and so, and half of it empty, just the bread. We only went there because the one next to it with good reviews was closed. Would not recommend!

My son's gnocchi and my husband's fixed price 3 menu were very good. My daughter loved her pizza. My pizza was just average - undercooked aubergines - very disappointing. May be I chose the wrong dish! Service was friendly and good. Pretty cheap meal for yeh quality of everyone's meal except mine!

Thank goodness we chose this restaurant! After a morning of walking and sightseeing, our family was very hungry for lunch. We stumbled across Gimmy Gio's down a small picturesque alley way. Between us we ordered the boar, spaghetti bolognese, parmesan cheese pasta and salad. The food shone brightly as it was freshly cooked, pasta was cooked to perfection and the... More

We found thisplace after our second try at Sbarbacipolla (which was closed, and with no indication of working hours, thank you). so we were pretty hungry by the time we got here. Even in that state, the food was pretty dissapointing. Gnocchi were bland and just splashed on the plate, with my wife getting close to half od my portion.... More

We ate here a couple of times on our recent stay in Colle - walked down from the old town and took the free lift back ! It's a fairly casual place frequented by locals as well as tourists (always a good sign!). The food was good, and the house wine very drinkable as well as very cheap. The waiter... More
