Lots to choose from

Very good pizzas with a wide selection of toppings. This is an extremely popular restaurant and often very crowded. In warm weather the terrace is often full and in winter the dining room is frequently packed. Service is efficient. It's not necessarily a place you'd like to loiter in, though.

Nice location, pleasant service, reasonable value. Nice crispy pizza base, but virtually no cheese on it. Chicken breast with rice and lemon sauce...as advertised, but nothing special.

Not sure what else to say, but our salad and pizza were not great and the service was also spotty. Wish we had gone somewhere else.

I had lunch special with a salad and a mushroom pizza for a lunch. It was a decent one although I thought the cheese was a bit rubbery and the bread was a bit though. They only have German or French on their menu. The service was good.

I've been there twice, once in 2012 and once this April. Both times I was very satisfied. Staff is very friendly and the dishes delicious. Pizzas are great and the Safran Risotto tasted fantastic. I'd definitely go again.

We had lunch here, enjoying meal of the day which was excellent value for two courses. Service was excellent. The calzone and pizza were excellent. Great corner of Murten to see the goings on, very relaxing.

The service was surprisingly excellent, the price reasonable, and food great. Menu (pizza with soup or salad) for 18.50 Chf. We arrived around noon and the restaurant soon filled completely, which suprised us for a weekday during... More

Found the Pizzeria just inside the old city from the main car park. Checked a number of other restaurants and this looked good. Sat outside on a reasonably warm night. Service was prompt and we had a Pizza Quatre Saisons which was excellent - nice thin crust pizza. House local red from Vully nicely complemented the pizza. Dessert was Coupe... More
