This place is great! The food quality is excellent and the staff is great. This is a wonderful place for a family meal after a long day at the beach. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. The Margarita Pizza is excellent. Close your eyes and you'll be in a Cafe in Italy! They give everyone a sample of their gelato,... More

We love this Italian restaurant near our condo. The best coal oven baked pizza ever. We love the Bianca. Service was attentive even though the restaurant is quite busy. We ended dinner with outstanding gelato. Very reasonable prices. Expect a wait--it is that good

We had a quick service in the outside canapi. Had the margharita pizza and house salad which were both good. For dessert we had the gelato which was exquisite! The flavours we ordered were pistachios (yum!), bacio ( even more yum) and peanut butter ( just yum). Highly recommend :)

We visited for lunch last year and had to go back. This time our group of 8 enjoyed dinner there. We had several pizzas, salad and wine. Everything was delicious and then came the samples of gelato. How could we resist ordering more? We had great service inside. The outdoor area is very pleasant and next year we will call... More
