We visited with a reservation about a month ago and enjoyed the pizza. The gimick of putting the glasses of cheese on the pizza is cute, but the choices of only expensive, artisan beers to accompany the pizza put us off. Also, we got our drinks after the pizza had arrived and had the feeling that we were being rushed... More

Simply the best. :) I live in Varese, love pizza and this is my favorite place. Original Naples recipe, mozzarella tastes great. Try the ones with a whole "burrata" or "bufala" on it. Never tried the other courses, such as pasta or meat, but I've been told they're as good as pizzas are. Prices are kinda low for what they... More

A small place, very noisy but with a really fast service. It is very interesting watching the cook making the pizzas in front of your eyes. The dough was excellent! We tried Margherita which was ok. But, don't you ever take the tuna! It smelled like rubbish. It was awful and it was a pity because everything else was nice,... More

Had a wonderful fresh pizza at Piedgrotta last week while visiting Varese. My aunt and I sat outside in the lovely quiet alley setting, and shared a piping hot pizza made to order with fresh buffala mozzarella cheese, yummy tomato sauce and a nice, thin crust. We also enjoyed a glass of a local beer called Forst with the pizza,... More

Great pizza here and this one had a huge ball of mozzarella on top. The sauce was excellent and the pizza was cooked to perfection considering I came right as they were about to close the kitchen. Also considering I came right as they were about to close the kitchen, the place was PACKED. People were still having drinks and... More

I have eaten a few times there already. Each time the food has been great, not too to speak about the fantastic choice on their menue! However, please consider two things: Make a reservation or you may cue for an hour or so (on Friday/Saturday) and be prepared it is a noisy place with hardly any privacy!

This place is always incredibly busy, so we must have poor taste in pizza. But perhaps it is because they are in such a rush that they serve under cooked pizza. Otherwise, it might be an OK place. But for people watching, it's not bad. If you decide to see for yourself, better make a reservation, or you won't be... More
