“relaxed place on the beach and Pizza napolitana style (thick crust)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

A lot of folks were raving about this pizzeria last summer, so, naturally, we went to give it a try.
The restaurant is right on the beach, so that is fun for kids who can run around whilst waiting for their meal.
The service wasn't great,despite not being very crowded. The waitress seemed to be a foreigner
(or extremely shy) as she didn't undertand us well, though we were all speaking italian. This past summer many businesses in this area "hired" Russian workers. I think that wasn't good for busines as I often noticed they weren't able to meet customers needs. These seasonal businesses should keep the few jobs they have for locals, who dont have work all winter.
Anyhow, our pizza was very good, if you like the thick type. Personally, we prefer the thin crust which is usually served in local pizzerias, but if you like to eat puffy, doughy stuff this is a good choice.
The prices were pretty standard for this area, about 10 - 12 euro per person for a pizza and soda or beer. Very casual setting.
