Quirky place, delicious pizza!

My son couldn't resist a place that called itself the 'University' of pizza...and the fact that they serve the biggest portions he'd ever seen! There seem to be quibbles about service but we had no complaints. We were seated straightaway and the order didn't take long to come. The pizza is really... read more

We thoroughly enjoyed the pizza served to our group by the meter and also the Insalata Caprese. The restaurant is large with plenty of tables and an open kitchen where you can see the wood fired pizzas being made. They cater to takeouts also.

We ate here twiceduring our stay in Vico Equense. The owner is also the owner of Villa Ketty where we stayed. The food here is excellent, with a HUGE menu. Prices were very low, and we left completely satisfied. Portions were huge, and the selection of pizza was the best we have seen. Wine was inexpensive as well. I highly... More

We recently stayed at Villa Ketty and this restaurant is owned by the same family hence the 10% discount and free transport. Whilst the food is first rate, because the restaurant is so big (more than 1000 places!) and popular then there may be delays getting served. However you're on holiday so why stress out over having to watch people... More

Amazing pizza - porcini with cheese. Best pizza I've ever eaten. While on holiday in Vico, we visited this place 4 times for takeaway! Had pizza twice and side dishes twice. Great value takeaway and delicious food. Need a branch set up in Norwich England please!!??

Only go to this restaurant if you have an hour to waste waiting for your order. We read about it in a guide book, searched, found, were finally seated. The place is huge, obviously not enough staff to cater for the number of clientele; we ordered, and waited, and waited and waited. Three times asked our waiter to see why... More

We stumbled by accident in this HUGE restaurant. Everything there is huge: the restaurant room, the kitchens and the pizza making "factory" (3 ovens). Even the pizzas are huge: up to 1 meter... Huge is not great quality for a restaurant though. We were made to wait 15 minutes to get a table, 30 minutes to get a ... menu,... More

Let's say that having a bad pizza in the area is really difficult! They named this place as the Pizza University and I think they are quite right as what we had for lunch was really good. Suggested choice are their "Pizza al metro" different taste of pizza cut that you can share with your friends.
