Superb pizza

I have been visiting this restaurant for several years now and it is one of the best places for pizza, in my opinion. If you like thin crispy bases and a good selection of toppings this is the place to go. It gets very busy on Friday and Saturday nights so get there early or book.

Excellent food in general, the perfect thin pizza with a very nice flavour and a soft bottom, crunchy on the top. Friendly service, good recommendation, no waiting. That's why the locals go there.

My husband and I have been to this restaurant several times over the years and regrettably it has slid downhill. To my chagrin, I selected the buffet, and upon returning I noticed a battalion of little flies landing on and off the grilled vegetables I had just eaten. A few hours later I had horrible intestinal issues accompanied by 101.3... More

This is a typical Italian large Pizzeria on a lovely piazza in Italy. It has a large covered terrace area facing the piazza to watch the world go by. The menu has over 30 pizzas on it! And they are to die for!

Our group ended up going there twice in less than a week because we all loved it. The food was great, friendly staff and great atmosphere. Had the pizza and then the pasta, excellent both times. Good value also.

After a very dissappointing food experience in Venice, the biggest tourist trap in Italy, at last we tried some excellent authentic Italian food, a real treat and good value for money. The portions were rather big and the quality excellent! I wish we could find this type of restaurant more often in this part of the world!!!

I ate here twice with my 12 year old son, who is a fussy eater, and it was a great success. The pizza's are gloriously fresh and he really rated the pasta. All courses are freshly prepared and the value is excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending it.

If you visit Maranello, eat at this restaurant! They have the best pizzas in whole World, and also every other food is excellent. I haven't ever eat better grilliata mista in Italy like they have, meat is so tasty and tender, it nearly melt in my mouth without chewing. And prices are very cheap. Must visit every time I visit...
