Very Good Pizza

Very casual place, but the pizza is very good. The pasta al aglio e olio was pretty standard, nothing spectacular. Service was pretty standard, Great for a quick meal

Like a true Sicilian Tavern, food is beautiful, and very well cooked, and served. The menu is not the biggest, but what they serve reflects this, as everything is well presented, and the pizza's are out of this world, both plentiful, and mouthwatering, the pizza base is very good, and if choosing any of the other dishes, you won't be...

Been there for many times and always been satisfied with the food and service. Pizza is extremely good as is the "petto di pollo saporito" and the "vitella milanese". Filippo, the owner passed away a few weeks ago. He was a true gentleman. Restaurant is now run by his wife and children. Still was extremely satisfied.

I do visit this place every now and then and the pizza is really good. A wide variety of pizzas as well. The pasta is also very good, perhaps they can be considered to be the "Piatti Forti" of this place. As for the rest well, I don't think that the chicken or fish can be considered of a good... More

tucked in a little corner this restaurant is nothing special with regards to decor except for the various sicilian souvenirs hanging on the walls. Pizza is one of the best you can find on the island...my favourite being the Norma. They have various pasta dishes with speciality changing depending on season. Good choice on dessert, apart from the run of... More

We went to this restaurant several times, always was satisfied with food and service as staff are very friendly, food is delivered fast, prices are reasonable. The pizza base is one of the best I have ever tasted. My personal favourite pizza is the Calabrese. I suggest to book before since they are very very busy especially on Saturdays (still... More

The pizza is great being made by an Italian pizzaiolo. Also their fish dishes are perfect! Family managed restaurant.
