This little gem of a restaurant is tucked away in a rather nondescript residential neighborhood of Rhodes Town. It's charming, in a rustic mom and pop way, and pleasant enough that you may linger after dinner - but not too long. That is, unless you really love "O Sole Mio" and the rest of the Neapolitan standards...

However, ambiance is not the reason to come here. Pizza is, above all else. The best way to describe it is "lace", served hot from the wood-burning oven. Very, very thin and puffy crust, drizzled with excellent tomato sauce, topped with just the right amount of REAL mozzarella and a hint of fresh basil. Yes, that's the proper Margherita and, truth be told, you don't need to bother with any other topping. It would be sacrilege, really.

We also had plain focaccia (perfect), a rocket salad with Gorgonzola and pears (very nice), plus rigatoni with chicken and mushrooms in a pink cream sauce (excellent).

Prices are very modest, too. Total bill for three (focaccia, salad, pasta, two pizzas, one beer and bottled water) came to 36€.

Bottom line: GO. Definitely GO.

It serves very good pizza made in a traditional brick oven. We also had a rather peculiar salad with almonds and fruit. Very good service. Exceptional clean toilets.

Rhodes and in what Italian restaurants we have found in Greece and abroad not tasted anywhere so delicious and pure ingredients in pizza. If talk about the pasta is just perfect and irritating to the palate. Try everything from the list and close your meal with delicious sweets that are pure foam. reference point for everyone everywhere Italian cuisine lovers. We loved it and every time we will be in Rhodes we will be there for our evening pleasures. Well done to all.

One of the best Italian restaurants I've ever had dinner at ! Amazing quality, super friendly and helpful staff. The pizza and pasta taste simply delicious ! All the dishes are pure Italian flavors and they are well cooked and served right out of the rock-built oven. Definitely recommend it, for me it was amazing ! Delicious Amatriciana !

This small place, run by a Napolitan guy and his Greek wife and family, makes by far the best pizza in the island. The ingredients they use are always fresh and original (mozzarella), and the pizza baked in the wooden oven gives a great taste. I have to add that their pasta dishes are also delicious; pasta cooked al dente, and sauces nice and fulfilling. Always my first choice every summer when I come to Rhodes.
