“Very good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I liked this pizza very much, but it wasn't too fresh (I mean pizza, not ingredients) so it wasn't too crispy, that's the minus. But, pizza was very tasty, colourful and smooth, with high quality ingredients. Service was friendly, but there was one strange thing about it, they are cutting pizza with normal scissors.

“Some of the Worst Pizza Ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

I absolutely love pizza and have eaten it on two continents, in several countries, and five different Italian cities and this was some of the worst pizza I've ever tasted. I was shocked at how bad it was. It was soggy, greasy, and worst of all it was cold even after it was warmed up in the oven again. It was thick which isn't typical of most Italian pizza I've seen. The store was crowded and despite people saying in reviews that it is full of locals I believe that just about everyone was a tourist. Just because people are speaking Italian doesn't mean they live down the street.

The pizza cost is dependent upon weight and it was really expensive for what it is. You cram yourself up to the counter with a bunch of other people and wait to be noticed to order. Then they throw your pizza back in the oven which apparently doesn't work all that good. The restaurant is dirty and expensive and should be avoided. Earlier in the day I had a slice of pizza from a place called Pizza and Co. near the main train station which was really good and Il Fornaio didn't stack up.

“really worth a hit here ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

place looks simple - but always full of visitors - these are not tourists but mostly residents of Bergamo - there probably ate the best pizza in Italy - you can take your food to take away and the floor is a dozen tables and a photo gallery documenting History of Owners

“Amazing pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Monster slices of pizza with very fresh and high quality ingredients, not cheap but very good. This is not a smart sit down restaurant, you order your pizza from the counter and you can eat it upstairs
