Well priced quick bite

This pizza place is right off the main square. The price is right, and you can bring your pizza and drink outside to sit and enjoy. I thought the pizza was quite good, and we sampled quite a few options. It looked like it was popular with students as well as locals.

Just wanted a quick bite in the evening so walked right into this pizzaeria. It is a small shop with a few chairs and a counter table inside, and more tables with high chairs outside. It's not a great environment but it's functional and reasonable. Order at the cashier, pay, and give your receipt to the serving staff right next... More

Visiting Bologna on a budget? PizzAltero is your place. They make large sheets of pizza that you buy by the slice. They scoop it out of the pan, throw it in some sheets of paper, and send you on your way. The lines are long during lunch but they move quickly. This is no-frills to-go food that tastes fine. It's...

We visited Rome, Florence, Bologna, and Venice and this was by far the best pizza on the entire trip. It doesn't look like much from the outside and we had not planned on visiting, but thought we would give it a try. This pizza was so delicious! It was doughy and the ingredients were fresh. This place was also very... More

This place has really gone downhill recently. Plus points: Okay, it's cheap and has convenient, central locations Minus points: ... but the quality is not good at all. Flabby, cold, tasteless pizzas that leave you feeling bloated like Pavarotti. The staff are about as pleasant as gastroenteritis. There is hardly anywhere to sit Everyone shoves in front of everyone else... More
