We tried to drop in but it was fully booked. Reserved table the evening after. The pizza was amazing. The place is busy but very nice. We have rebooked.

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident. Busy. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff - great service. But most importantly, great pizzas. Thin, crisp with very high quality ingredients. One of the best pizzas ever. A must visit!

Delicious pizza with creative toppings. Thin crispy base, we had one with foie gras and duck and another with smoked mozzarella. Highly recommend

Only opened on spring and summer this restaurant is a real legend in town. So legendary that the owner opened the "winter PAPACIONU" in Paris 2 or 3 years ago. In summer an early booking is advised unless you don't mind to eat around 11.30PM Great address don't miss it

Very nice outdoor restaurant serving one of the best pizza i've ever had. Fresh and local products, correct prices. The desserts were just ok and the staff very distant. They know the worth of the place so they don't do any effort to satisfy the customers.

This a the best pizza I have ever had (even in Italy). Try the Papacionu one if you love cheese and pine nuts! The dough is absolutely fantastic. The service is very informal but you need to book a table as it's very busy.

The pizza is simply good and the shape is different as usual (seems like a half of a very big pizza). I recommend to make a reservation because it´s always full. At least during my visit. Deserts are worth to try as well.

Arrived around 18h30 on a Saturday evening in July and were lucky enough to get a table. We'd spotted this pizzeria the previous evening and we just had to try it out. The staff were agreeable, humorous, fast and served up great, great pizza. Pizza Chorizo or Pizza foie gras, duck breast and figs and perfect thin, crispy pizza base.... More

Unfortunately the restaurant seems to live on their high ranking on tripadvisor. We came early and was placed a a nice table, but without any enthusiasm. The waiter didn't look into our eyes once. After having ordered one of their recommended pizzas a bottle of wine and a bottle of water, he forgot about the water and delivered the wine.... More
