Best pizza I've had outside Italy, and I'm not joking. The Quattro Formaggio just melts in your mouth. The Pasta Carbonara is to die for as well.

Pizza crust was one of the best I've had--even better than the pizza we had in NYC. Ingredients were high quality and fresh. Atmosphere was quaint--small but manageable. Outside seating was available but it was really hot on the afternoon we visited so we opted for inside. Salad was fresh and mozzarella sticks were excellent. Service was spectacular!!

Great prices, nice atmosphere. Authentic pizza!! My husband is very picky and wouldn't endorse a pizza that wasn't perfect.

What a great find. One of the best pizzas I've had. It's small cozy atmosphere makes it an excellent choice if you want great pizza at a reasonable price. You won't be disappointed. And you can't forget the gelato.

We found this place on TripAdvisor. We wanted something away from the tourist area of the beach. It is a quaint building with indoor and outdoor dining. We were seated immediately despite the place being busy. The staff were attentive and always moving. The food was great. We had pizza and pasta. We will definitely return.

Location: Restaurant is located very close to downtown Clearwater, but not not in a commercial zone. Easy to find. Outside Venue: Landscaped beautifully with flowing greenery and flowering blooms. A beautiful garden. Inside Venue: Small, charming and cozy. The inside is nice for couples or (2) couples; however, not for groups. There is outside seating for larger groups. The outside... More

Always a favorite. This past weekend we took another couple out and dinner could not be any better. Pizza was off the chain, fresh pasta was fantastic and the calamari was to die for. Service was fantastic and to top off a great meal what better can you ask for but some home made gelato. Absolutely wonderful. Keep up the... More

Were visited for our last meal in our vacation after reading Trip Advisor reviews. The decor is nice but cramped. Pepsi products always let us down. Rosè wine was very poor. Bruschetta was almost frozen direct from the fridge. Mozzarella sticks didn't appear to be fresh. As I said. It was ok but we wouldn't return.
