Mamma Mia!

This has to be the best pizza you've tasted, this could also be the largest one you've tasted. Be a man and order the 1 meter long (39.3 inches) Amazing place, great waiters and crafted food. The best in Maranello

This is, hands down, the best pizza I have ever eaten! My husband and I always eat here on our trips to Italy. There is also a full menu with beautifully made food by the Chef Anna. Lello makes the most amazing pizza in the world. Not for from Modena and Bologna, this place is a must!

After visiting Ferrari factory we went for dinner at this restaurant. As Italian wines are not my speciality asked the waiter for a good wine. He suggested one rather expensive (60 euros) saying it was the best. It was horrible (Masi Costasera Amarone classico 1998). Made the waiter taste it and he said it was good. Asked for the manager...

We visited this restaurant on recommendation of the lovely staff at Hotel Maranello Village. We were greeted by a friendly young Male waiter who spoke very clear English (after our poor attempt at Italian!) and showed us to a table. The starter was great, but the main course of pizza was fantastic. Authentic Neapolitan pizza. The pizza was delicious, deep... More

I ate here with my mum in September 2013 while staying in the nearby Maranello Village hotel. The food was of very good quality and portions were of reasonable size. I had a tasty starter of parma ham, mozzarella, olives and tomatoes that easily fed two, a slightly disappointing porcini tagliatelle, an excellent quattro staggione pizza and, to finish, a... More

I recently visited Maranello with a good friend of mine and we had the pleasure of having dinner at this locale. It was my friend's first ever dinner in Italy (we ordered a classic margherita pizza and a mozzarella di bufala/ caprese salad apetizer) and he was absolutely blown away. As for myself, it was not my visit to Italy... More

What a great restaurant! We had the best food of our trip here; the starters (parma ham and tuna) were the best I have tasted for a long while. Main courses were also excellent and there was an extensive wine list. If you are in the area it would be a shame not to go.

Never been here before but one of the best in the area. Even my fussy husband was impressed. My ravioli with spinach and ricotta and a sage and butter sauce was amazing washed down with a perfect temperature (so rare in Italy) cabernet merlot red wine and followed by a dessert of Bavarese. My husband had a pasta with onions,... More

Recommended by the Maranello Village Hotel, another place for fans of Ferrari. Went twice in two days, second time the waiter escorted us to "our" table. A real Italian family restaurant, even Pavarotti has been here. Food superb, they specialise in pizza and fish, if this sounds mundane, be disabused - fantastico, as the natives say. The desserts are pretty... More
