Everything in there looked fresh and delicious! They have pizza, and different types of bread. But I had to go with the fried bread with the cheese inside (forgot what it was called). This was AMAZING! It was piping hot, so you could tell that they just fried it. I liked it because it wasn't greasy at all. It was... More

This isn't neopolitan style or fancy pizza. But this was probably the best slice I had in Italy. The bread is almost like it was fried or griddled. It was just so dang tasty. Eat it as a snack or for lunch.

Nothing bad to say about this place, you can easily find a cheap, tasty focaccia - and in so many flavours! Recommended. The inside is clean and roomy, and service is warm.
