I simply love their food: no matter if it's a "simple" pizza, or a mozzarella, or the delicious buffalo steak, everything is so tasty ! the personnel is young and eager to please, the style is informal. A classic Italian restaurant, from the South. and this is a guarantee !

We've been there for launch break with friends during the film festival. Maybe it wasn't a great moment for this place, but it was so chaotic, we ordered some appetizers, but the waitress was so slowly and spoke a lot with her friends, she quite forgot about us. That's why we'd decide not to order anything more for not expecting... More

Nice place to have pizza and typical pasta. But do not expect a real neapolitan pizza. Like in the title 'good but not exceptional'. This place is very crowded, because many Italians order pizza to go.

Fratelli la Bufala, one of the best chains of Napolitan Pizza. I was never let down in any of their restaurants, excellent service and excellent food. Tried the casertana with a whole meal dough and loved it.

It is unusual for Italy, Because somehow Italian... More

I had high expectations since I've been to the one in Milano, and Pescara. Food average and they didn't have many of the dishes on the menu. We were not really satisfied but no one really showed any interest. Really disappointed

Finding a good hamburger is hard, but finding one that is healthy is even harder. That is why I highly recommend this place. Buffalo is healthier than beef and I love it. This restaurant has ENGLISH menus too. Don't worry if you can't speak Italian, they have a server that speaks English and you can always just point to what... More
