Service is extremely friendly and quick but the taste of the pizza is not as expected from other reviews

Soggy pizza and antipasto that was fried bread, not at all what was promised or described on the menu. Some of the poorest pizza I've ever had.

This appears to be a new place in an old haunt. It seems a little frayed around the edges, but you have to look for that. Located just inside the city walls. I wouldn't go out of my way for this place, but it is convenient to MAMBO & I would return if in that neighborhood again. We showed up... More

15 min stroll from the centre. Beautiful pizza, great beer, family friendly. They put up with us dithering in poor Italian and provided great service and the best pizza we'd had all week.

Wonderful and well served food, especially the guy "calabrese". Warm, comfortable atmosphere and really nice food.

The decoration is simply bad. The 2 pizzas we tried had nice ingredients of good quality. BUT it both of them were not cooked properly. Despite they entered the brick oven, not only they lacked the important crispy texture but they were completely dismantling and the bottom was wet!

You can find a piece of southern italian cuisine here at La Verace. The restaurant is near the train station, so it's quite central. In my opinion you should try their pizza since they have high quality ingredients and the original pizza recipe, which is not as easy as it seems to find! Not very expensive, affordable. Dinner recommended

We were staying nearby and are in this restaurant twice in one week. The pizzas are delicious and the seafood pasta dish was one of the best I've ever had. Staff are really friendly and very attentive. Of all the restaurants we ate in during the week I would rate this one as best for service. I would highly recommend... More

Fantastic food and service was great. House wine is cheap and pizza's were amazing, good value (between 7-12 euros) and great choices, some of the best I've see in Italy. We went early on a Saturday night and the place does get busy so would advise to book and get there early on weekends. It was tricky to find somewhere... More
