Worth a stop

Ate today with my family. Pizza was great and very fresh. Only thing said that inside was air conditioned but actually it was switched off. For the rest really recommend, worth a visit.

We walked around and looked at the various restaurants and decided to have pizza at this one. We ordered the pizza and it came in 12 minutes cooked perfectly. It was thin with a crispy crust and the right amount of toppings. The house wine was delicious and service was excellent we had a very positive experience. I don't usually... More

I was here in October and had a fabulous meal. I'm really surprised to see all the negative reviews so I had to post! My boyfriend and I both had the touristic seafood menu and for 15 euros each we had antipasto, pasta, and fish, which I think is a great deal. The food was seriously excellent, really traditional and... More

Staff was rude, looked bored and never smiled. I was mostly ignored and my table was used as a dumb waiter a couple of times while I was eating. The pizza was ok, even though the crust was too thick.

The service people were snarly and clearly unhappy being there. The food in the cases looked old and had a few flies inside the case. We finally were seated (because our B&B recommended this pizzeria) and after one snarl too many we walked out. So, never tasted the food but are glad we moved on. The next pizzeria was just... More

All in all - good food, good service, good location. One kids had good pizza, another had a steak and contorni, I had excellent arancine and bowl of pasta as did my husband. The pastries were also good. So all that and water and wine and we spent $90.

Kind of fast food place, good only for a pizza or bruschetta. Plenty of higher quality places on Erice.
