Just back from Sicily and had some great food but lucky to have this little gem on our doorstep! What a place, authentic food with a friendly atmosphere. Keep up the good work!

“Quality Italian FOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

It is even difficult to find pizzas like this one in Italy. Mario, the owner, puts perfection in every single pizza he makes, he uses fresh Italian ingredients...you can definitely taste the difference! The service is great, Naif and Ilaria are very polite. AND they sell "Chinotto" <3 Well done guys, my favorite pizza EVER! :-)

“Excellent value and a warm welcome.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

There's been an explosion in the number of places offering authentic pizza in Bournemouth & Poole recently, but these guys were the first. Small and unassuming from the outside, this is a lovely family owned joint run by Mario (a proper Italian from err...Italy!) and his British wife. They have a magnificent stone pizza oven which takes up a fair amount of the kitchen and offer a decent selection of pizza, the ingredients are fresh and the service is second to none. You may have trouble getting a seat during peak hours, but it's worth the wait and they offer a takeaway service too.

“Authentic italian cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

The eating space is tiny but the products and atmosphere are amazing! Italian chef really knows his stuff - not just my opinion but my italian friends confirm that it tastes like the real deal they know from back home. I had the most amazing margharita and a bruschetta out of this world. Also very pleasant staff.
