“Amazing Pizza, Super Fast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Absolutely delicious pizzas at a reasonable price. Very fast, friendly service. Tasty wine. Highly recommend. It gets pretty crowded sometimes, but people come and go fairly quickly. If it's full, it shouldn't take too long for a table to open up. Pizzas range from about 8-14 euro, depending on the toppings. All of them are delicious!

“Best food in Spain!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Okay so that may not be entirely true, but it was said in jest. And we did go there three times in a week, sooo.... We found the wait staff to be very friendly and accommodating. We were there for my sister's 50th birthday, and we brought our own cake with candles. They were happy to light the candles and serve the cake along with a recorded feliz cumpleaños. It was very fun.

The food was very good. We had several pizzas over the three dinners we had there, and all were tasty. The melted cheese appetizer that was served with bread was very good, and the eggplant parmesan was excellent. The price was average, with beers and wine averaged around 15 euros per person, and everyone went home satisfied. Even the vegetarians in the group. It's well worth a visit.

“Jolly decor, excellent service, great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Just the job after a long day sightseeing, pounding the streets. Pizza was all fresh and very good quality. Nice bottle of wine, and reasonable prices. Cafe style and brightly lit, but fun and welcoming for families. A little out of the way, but worth the detour, and picked up a taxi back to the hotel in the street right outside. Highly recommended.

“An Italian Oasis in Madrid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Went for the first of what I hope will be many trips to this place last night. We went for an early dinner at 8:30, and it was already filling up. By the time we left, there was a line. A small restaurant, with a straight forward menu, we had a salad an a couple pizzas. We shared this among four people, so keep that in mind when looking at the price and how much you order - it's big.

The service wasn't just good, it was fun, bringing smiles to our faces as we waited for our food and all through the evening.

The beer selection was less than stellar, but they did have a decent selection of wine, and I go back to the food. The food was awesome, and the sauce on the pizza was extremely good. it was similar to John's Pizza in NYC, but the similarity ended there. The ingredients come from the Italian market around the corner, and mmmmmm it's good.
