Stopped here for lunch. The pizzas had a nice dough and were yummy. Also had a refreshing chicken salad.

We went here after reading a blog recommending the place for proper Italian pizza. Pizza comes in many forms, at this place they serve a pizza which is neither paper thin nor "American pan pizza". The pizza has a crispy crust which is soft inside, perfectly made for my taste. We shared a Caprese salad for starters, but a pizza... More

Hands down -- the best pizza I've eaten on two-week trip to Italy that is about to come to an end. It is real Neapolitan pizza that is baked in a wood oven and the crust has that authentic, woodsy taste. Seven of us ate here last night. One person got a salad and another got a dish of tortellini... More

My husband and I stopped in for dinner, and we had the mixed seafood appetizer and each tried a pizza.. Everything was absolutely amazing! The house wine was very good, and the clams and mussels were fantastic! The pizzas were hot and crispy with fresh toppings and we both added buffalo mozz. Definitely recommend stopping in here. The service was... More

I discovered this Pizzeria just last week and i'm very happy to write this review. The location is nice and the pizza is the real one from Naples. they offer a wide range of pizzas and some other food like pasta. But i'd suggest to go for pizza, if you love the thick one. the service is good, not so... More

This restaurant is called Pizzeria Tonino, went for dinner and had an excellent meal. Requested vegetarian food and the pizza chef spoke enough English to understand what we wanted. He made us a vegetarian pizza in a wood fired oven - slightly burnt but really tasty and superb pasta with vegetables. He even brought over samples of pasta shapes to... More

We came to Tonino for a pizza on a Sunday evening and the warmth of this local trattoria taunted us to try something more. So we decided to share a plate of 'strascinati' in a sauce made from tomatoes, mushrooms and pancetta. Divine! The pizzas were also to die for. There is a slight wait for the food but it... More
