We eat at so many places during our stay in Italy and Lo Smeraldo was definitely the best! The food was amazingly tasteful, the service was excellent and the prices are totally ok for what it offers. We had the best dinner of our stay there at the lowest price of all. Highly recommended!!

On a recommendation by locals we went to Lo Smeraldo for Napoli pizza. I was shocked by how delicious it was. Completely stunning. The ingredients were fresh and lovely. Especially, tomatoes. This is next level, I can confidently say it was the best pizza I ever had :) Will never forget for this experience. I can just truly recommend to... More

We had the opportunity to eat dinner at Lo Smeraldo upon the recommendation of an Italian American restauranteur. What a great recommendation! We arrived at 8 pm and discovered that we were the first guests of the evening. Any worries about the place not being enjoyed by the locals were banished as the place continued to fill with local people... More

Went there as the Maranello village on site restaurant is currently closed. You know it's going to be fine when locals are there too, couples, and families. PIzzas are great, watch for the massive oblong ones that most groups/families seem to go for. We enjoyed cold meat starters, seafood risotto, simple but tasty and filling pizzas, as well as fine...

The Menu is in English, good prices, the variety is good, everyone can find something to eat, quick service, welcoming... More

This has to be the best pizza you've tasted, this could also be the largest one you've tasted. Be a man and order the 1 meter long (39.3 inches) Amazing place, great waiters and crafted food. The best in Maranello

This is, hands down, the best pizza I have ever eaten! My husband and I always eat here on our trips to Italy. There is also a full menu with beautifully made food by the Chef Anna. Lello makes the most amazing pizza in the world. Not for from Modena and Bologna, this place is a must!

After visiting Ferrari factory we went for dinner at this restaurant. As Italian wines are not my speciality asked the waiter for a good wine. He suggested one rather expensive (60 euros) saying it was the best. It was horrible (Masi Costasera Amarone classico 1998). Made the waiter taste it and he said it was good. Asked for the manager...

We visited this restaurant on recommendation of the lovely staff at Hotel Maranello Village. We were greeted by a friendly young Male waiter who spoke very clear English (after our poor attempt at Italian!) and showed us to a table. The starter was great, but the main course of pizza was fantastic. Authentic Neapolitan pizza. The pizza was delicious, deep... More

I ate here with my mum in September 2013 while staying in the nearby Maranello Village hotel. The food was of very good quality and portions were of reasonable size. I had a tasty starter of parma ham, mozzarella, olives and tomatoes that easily fed two, a slightly disappointing porcini tagliatelle, an excellent quattro staggione pizza and, to finish, a... More
