The first thing you will be charmed by is the internal design of the building.
An old brick kiln renovated to a restaurant-pizzeria.
There's a immense choice of kinds of pizzas and if you prefer fish, meat or first courses so....you are in the right place!
I suggest at least 2 visits here, one for pizzas and one for restaurant dishes.

I was brought here for lunch by the company I was delivering some training for. It was originally used for making bricks, and there are quite a few photos decorating the curved brick walls, of pots being made too.

The tables are all laid out within the old brick arches, but clever use of lighting, plants and some careful renovation makes this an easy restaurant to eat in, and to enjoy being in.

Prices were about average for this part of Italy, service was excellent, parking is plentiful, even in mid-lunch time.

Couldn't drive pass this restaurant on the way to Venice,it was huge and definitely stood out.
We had had pizza already a few times in the last few days so we decided to just order a small one to share just to see how they compared, the margarita Pizza was fantastic ,thin and not overloaded, perfect definitely one of the better ones we have had in Italy,even though I must admit there have been very few I have not enjoyed.
We the ordered the eggplant parmigiana, a potato mash pattie,a risotto with seafood and a bottle of their house white.
All the dishes rated highly but the seafood risotto was excellent, most restaurants seem to drown their risotto or spaghetti marinara in sauce so that's all you taste,this had just the right amount and so the fish taste stood out just right,and the eggplant parmigiana was also fantastic,the wine was from the region and was great value for the quality.
The staff including the owners who introduced themselves were extremely friendly and the service great .
We will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.

When driving down the road, if this place doesn't catch your attention, get glasses! It was Saturday night and after two places had already turned us away for no reservations, I called them and they told us we could be sat immediately. This place is HUGE! So much stuff to look at - when you walk in, it's like sensory overload. Tip: don't sit by the stairs! We had kids running up and down THE WHOLE TIME! 2 seaters are really small - they had to pull up another little table. We ordered the mixed grill - steaks, chicken, sausage, ribs. YUM French fries were good - grilled veggies - NO! Best beer EVER! We even purchased our mug. Will go again!!
