Visited after reading trip advisor reviews. Queue was out the door so thought that was a good sign right? Wrong. Waited for an age just to be served. 30 mins before order taken. Then another 20 mins before finally getting the much awaited slice. It was minging. Wish I hadn't bothered. Would not recommend.

Might "only be for tourists" but I stumbled upon this place looking for a bit of take away food to enjoy whilst wandering about the old town, the pizza was delicious I had one with salami and mozzarella. Call me a tourist!

Oily, creamy pizza. Nothing special, definitely not a taste i would expect from an Italian pizza. Seems like one piece is 10k callories. Not coming back

Perfect for lunch. They've got a great variety of pizza's which you order by the slice. They cut them up for you and if the weather allows it, it's very easy to walk to the piazza Vecchia which is just around the corner and sit down there and enjoy your lunch in a sunny square, rather than in what is...

We were late for lunch (3pm) so the restaurants were all closed. We were delighted to come across Il Fornaio and it's delicious fare. We sat comfortably upstairs and left completely satisfied and our wallets not much lighter.

I tried 2 different kinds of desserts-one with lemon cream and another one with vanilla cream. Very very very sweet. So I didn't finish any one of them. I think I should try their pizza since it seems more popular.

Many kinds of pizza, rich and yummy at great prices! Good service, as fast as they can, but always polite, maybe they should enrich the choice of beers with some local brands.

There was a long line so it must be good right? Definitely! Lots of pizza to choose from. Thick, flaky crust. I had the spinach and buffalo mozzarella drizzled with olive oil. They sell by weight. Seating upstairs. Line moves slowly because you order, they give you a receipt, you pay and then return to pick up after it's been... More

We saw the pizzas and the sweets from the window and decided to give a try. We were lost at the beginning because there was such a big variety of pizzas, focaccias and pastries that we wanted to taste them all. You can order as big piece as you wish - they will weigh it and cut it with (you... More
