We were looking for a good pizzeria and found it on a side street not too far from Basilica San Vitale. The portions were generous and the ingredients fresh. In fact, my husband and I shared a pizza and a side salad. The lettuce was crisp and tasty, nothing limp here. We enjoyed a half bottle of the local Sangiovese... More

We were a bit late for lunch and got hold by accident of the special "reduced price" menu for towns´people. Massimo the chef/owner made a quick management decision and gave us a special semi towns´folk price which satisfied both parties. On top of this he was so kind to put one starter on two plates. I wouldn´t write this review... More

I would not recommend you go here at all. Normally either the food or service is poor but here both are. It is ok for pizzas but anything more complicated than that is beyond them. The service is so bad you really have to just go up to the counter and do everything yourself. There are many better places for... More

As an Italian person, I have no complaints about the pizza: it was very good. Went one evening, went back the next one. The staff was friendly and very professional, and the prices on the menu were reasonable. I suggest to make a reservation, as the restaurant did look quite busy.

We had dinner at Babaleus. Not pizza, but very nice pasta with cheese and Bolognese sauce. We were not disappointed. The food is very tasty and good value. Sympathetic staff and nice atmosphere.

Had a pizza tonno with onions and garlic. Spicy oil in a bottle on the table. Very nice pizza, great taste. The beer came fast and was ice cold. The staff was professional and friendly. Take a mascarpone for desert! And of course an espresso with a sambuca on the side to finish. Would eat here again.

Pizza and pasta selection here were fair prices and good quality - salads OK but must they add tinned sweetcorn - carafe wine good quality and price Quiet side street so little through traffic though be careful of the residents backing into their garages if you are sat on the road! Lots of Italians mainly eating pizza

This place has awesome pizza! We ate here twice during our stay in Ravenna. The wine choices were lacking (for our finicky palates), but the staff was always smiling and friendly and the pizza was always great.

We were a big table of foreign people, tried to have something typical and we were suggested the maxi pizza, equivalent of 4 normal pizzas...NOT! To be clear in one thing, the pizza was really amazing: fresh ingredients, 72h levitation, Napoletan style. But the values was not good...not expensive, just not correct for what you get. The service was good,... More
