Eat with the locals!

We loved this place. Noisy, atmospheric, full of locals, good simple food freshly prepared and quickly served. At least that's our experience. We were recommended it by our hosts on our first night and ate there another 3 times. We don't do that very often. No place will hit the spot every... read more

Won't be going back any time soon. Wanted to have a nice dinner, due to my husbands health, very disappointing service. We weren't eating pizza, we had a 3 course meal.

Actually rather good place, with great service, fairly broad menu (pizzas are the specialty but they have other dishes as well). Ambiance is not bad. When the weather is good, there is an outdoor terrace. Part of the restaurant is across the street in an annex. The restaurant is very easy to find, good signage (even at night). Parking is... More

A man sitting next to me on the plane to Italy told me of a restaurant to try in a small town we were visiting. My husband and I love local places away from tourists. And this one was perfect!!! Small town atmosphere where customers knew each other. Recco is the home of focaccia so I had a pizza made... More

This pizzeria has rocketed in popularity. Expect a queue at the weekend and any warm summer evening. Food is served quickly and well. If you like food, pay attention to the "specials" board, often there are real treats to be found here, but confirm the price before you order a board item. So why has this particular pizzeria become so... More

tables are very packed, place can be noisy, but this is a Pizzeria, and it is so succesful that it is always packed. Ponte beats all the traditional Recco's restaurant on the Focaccia al Formaggio, really outstanding! A delicacy, a mastrepiece. > don't order on tuesday, the focaccia's chef has his day off and his apprentice ... Needs time. Pizza... More

We visited this restaurant yesterday. The pizzas were really low quality. The edges of pizzas were burned and the middle was soaking wet. We needed to pay for service 8 €. The restaurant is overrated.

Good food, good service, fair prices, quick (was here for lunch). Lot of Italian families with kids, so thats a good sign. Nothing super fancy but very tasty and what you would expect. Recommend!
