“Friendly & Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Take a stroll up narrow residential streets to this cozy, family run pizzeria. All herbs are grown on-site, and the dough is handmade. Fragrant jasmine was blooming all around us. It's as good a pizza as you will find anywhere. Some extra house wine helped us wait out a brief afternoon shower. Not that that influenced my review mind you.

“The real deal pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Best pizza we have ever had, no lie!
Being true New Yorkers we set the bar at thin crusted pizza with just enough garlic, sauce, cheese, and seasonings. This pizza makes New York style pizza "just okay", it's thin yet flavorful and you could easily eat a few. Also the woman who took care of us (the owner most likely) is just adorable, We plan on eating their again tonight! Do your palate a favor and eat here!

“Highly recommended gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Dined on the quaint shaded patio for late lunch on June 8, 2014. The restaurant is owned and operated by a very nice couple that exuded passion for the highest quality food ingredients, preparation style and sincere friendly service. Following a week visiting various northern Italian cities, the quattro stagioni pizza from Balognett stood out as superior in the opinion of this Italian pizza lover. For a late afternoon meal, this was a memorable dining experience while staying in Tremezzo and Italy as a whole. I hope to visit again some day.

“Excellent pizza true Italian style with fresh homegrown toppings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

We are very glad we made the effort to fina this hidden gem off the beaten track in Tremezzo. The owner is lovely and whilst we awaited our pizza's she treated up to some of her home grown zucchini in an omelette. We all thoroughly enjoyed our Pizza's. The toppings are home grown in the owners gardens and the pizza base thin and crispy. I would recommend this restaurant if you would like to true some real Italian home cooking. They offer home cooked starters and desserts as well as Pizza's. Restaurant opens 1pm-11pm.

“Incredible Pizza, Incredible Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

This restaurant was an amazing experience. Run by just two people, its not the biggest place in the world, but that absolutely adds to the charm. Nestled up in the hills surrounded by gardens and private villas, the restaurant was a bit of a hike up from the main road if you are walking, but totally worth it. The pizza was incredible, and the small town feel, along with the friendliness and charm of the manager (maybe owner?) was just fantastic. What a great experience.
