Original toppings

A really nice place, a bit hidden. You can sit outside, which is really nice during summer. Staff is friendly. You can choose rather unusual toppings for your pizza. The pizza's are served swiftly and are made the way they should be.

My husband and I decided to check out this jewel of a restaurant on our holiday and suffice to say, it was not disappointing one bit! We ordered the focaccia, which was served to us as a flat bread instead of the original fluffy focaccia bread (the only surprising thing), the Lolo pizza and tiramisu. The dishes were simply out...

I was here after a long walk in Old Town, it was really nice place to chill. Actually I wanted to have only coffee and dessert but waitress (cute English-speaking girl!) said it is impossible without ordering main dish (pizza or something else). Probably I'm not experienced traveler but this is new rule for me, I've never heard it before.... More

We called in on spec on a chilly Sunday lunchtime - the restaurant was busy but they found us a table upstairs. Service was good, swift and friendly. Pizzas were fabulous - the crust was delicious and just the right ratio of topping. Price was reasonable and I would highly recommend this restaurant for an authentic and delicious pizza..

Stumbled upon this restaurant for our last lunch as we were getting a bit tired of rich French food. It was a packed Saturday and we were lucky to get a table. All staff are Italian which gives a really authentic edge to the place. The lady next to us was disappointed that there was no pasta, just pizza -... More

Ate Weds evening 8.30pm, right opposite our accommodation, but were disappointed! Main door closed, re- directing customers to door nearest kitchen. Met by overwhelming heat/ smoke of kitchen and just chefs looking at us, no greeting. Directed upstairs to full restaurant, last table, very noisy and popular ( but tables v clise and almost shouting at one another). Absolutely no... More

Came to lunch time, service was quick. The pizza was excellent, the dough was so light, I could eat the crust just like that. It a must for pizza lovers.

We went here last night, based on the reviews on TA and were not disappointed. The pizzas were excellent, service was very good, especially as it was so busy. We also tried the tiramisu, which was superb. A great restaurant and good value for money

we shared an antipasto starter which was really high quality, with cured meat, buffalo mozzarella, balsamic onions and wonderful cheesy garlic bread. The pizzas were fantastic, and the puddings home made and good. The service was lovely, and the place was buzzing on a Sunday lunch time. We would definitely return.

I can understand the reviews about the service, which can be slightly different depending on the day and if it's busy but come on.. The pizzas are just awesome, the best i've eaten so far, ingredients are extremly fresh and the dough is just delicious. Reasonnable price for the quality, and the wine is cool aswell, ask for the speculoos... More
