3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2014 NEW

I was not impressed by this venue. They lost one star when I had to ask four times for a glass of red wine. The seating was comfortable and the decor nice. The pizza was decidedly mediocre for Italy. The pizza crust was floppy and messy. Does not seem to be true Italian style pizza. The toppings were good, but... More

Very friendly staff even though there was a little language barrier. Fresh, fresh food & wine. A must stop while visiting the piazza.

Went there by recommendation of our hotel manager and the food was good but the service is terrible. Extremely slow and waiters ignored us several. Asked for water and they will forget, when I remind them of it they will bring it 20 minutes later, the waitress was rude and complained because we used 1 and 2 euro coins for... More

We were a group of eight and ate there recently and was not impressed. They charged us a 3 euro cover charge which is way too much for a pizza lunch. Then they also tried to charge us for a phantom person, ie overcharge us.after I pointed this out they did remove it from the bill, but the cover compromised... More

Great lunch stop in the shade of Santa Croce. Welcome relief from July heat and a post wedding hangover. Lovely friendly staff, made up nice platter on request, sat outside on street. Really nice lunch experience.

We visited with 2 children, ages 9 and 12. The pizza was awesome, delicious sauce, fresh cheese and great crust. The service was outstanding and we felt quite at home. The restaurant is right outside Santa Croce, great location for a stop during sightseeing.

Amazing pizza, but service was slow and missed one of our side dishes. Would still highly recommend it just because of how good pizza it was!

Service is not good. And I saw the group tourists dining in. Maybe it's the reason for the colde service and bitter steak. NOT recommended.

We asked our concierge to recommend a restaurant with good local food and were sent to Francescano. We chose lobster linguine which was wonderful. Our next course was described as fish tomato and potato. After the fantastic linguine I wished we had chosen another pasta dish but this was equally as good. We followed by tiramisu ...one between two is... More
