Having read T/A reviews about the grey haired granny and her creative accounting, we were well prepared when it came to pay the bill for our (excellent) pizzas. And she lived up to expectation and overcharged for the house wine! My husband protested in good humour and the bill was adjusted accordingly. Beware future diners!

We visited the restaurant as part of a group of 50 and then as a group of 8. Both times the pizzas were rated very highly. My favourite was Viagra! if you like hot spicy pizza made with gorgonzola cheese then you will like this one, very tasty. The staff were very friendly and did their best with the party... More

Very friendly service and a lovely evening sitting outside in one of the narrow streets in Orta San Giuilio. A no-frills restaurant but good pizzas at a reasonable price.

Very basic place but cheap as chips our meal including a bottle of wine €30 with the tip. Yeah it's not the Ritz but it's cheaper than most places here.

We had a delightful lunch at this pizzeria which has a wood burning oven. After lunch while speaking with the owner I watched the chef make pizzas for other diners. Everything is hand made and fresh. We had a rustic insalata a mare with a porcini pizza and a large bottle of mineral water. With coperto the tab came to... More

We had a reasonably good meal here only last week but felt totally ripped off by the owner a little old grey haired Italian woman in a pink apron. She won't give you a receipt even after questioning her mathematics. We were overcharged and she thought we wouldn't say anything about it but we did and she wasn't at all... More

We had a very fussy teenager with us and this was the only meal we had all week in and around Orta that he didn't cause a fuss and complain about. No frills, just good Italian family hospitality and a menu of virtually any pizza you can imagine, and one litre of wine for 8 euro. The pizzas were perfect.... More

This is a friendly pizza place 10 seconds off the main square. It definitely worth a visit, with very reasonably priced food and beer served by the most delightfully Italian woman we met. We got pizza to take out a few times, because it's so nice to sit by the water and eat, but they have an inside and outside... More
