“Great pizza, and just like Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We've been here often, and the most recent trip was right after we got back from a trip to Florence, Italy. As the other reviewer said, the pizza is just like being back in Italy with similar pizza dough consistency, sauce, cheese, and topping flavours. The pizza sauce is awesome. Another great thing about this restaurant - the proscuitto wrapped mozzarella balls, which have a great salty hit to them, and are served in their great tomato sauce. This location is good, if somewhat busy, especially on Thursdays, Fridays and weekends. We have never been disappointed after a trip here, and it's our go to when we want to eat pizza at a restaurant, instead of getting delivery.

“Next best thing to actually going to Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This restaurant has been in our neighbourhood for many years and I'm surprised no one has written a review about it yet. It has a fairly simple menu - pizza, flatbreads, salads and desserts. Their pizza is touted to be what you would get in Italy - and having family in Italy and having travelled many times to Italy, I can tell you that this is as close to real Italian pizza as you are going to get in Edmonton. Nice thin but slightly chewy crust with not too much "stuff" loaded on top of the crust. The flatbreads are also very tasty, as is their dessert menu, including the house made gelato.

You can do dine in or take out and the dine in part is slightly different from other restaurants. You find your own table and then go to the front to order and they bring you your food when ready. The food comes quickly, and it's always hot and tasty.

It is a great spot to stop in for a quick lunch or dinner or get take out.
