Tucked away down an alley off the main street, this pizza restaurant is a real gem. Seafood pizza was the best ever! Nice to see the pizzas being made in front of you, plenty of locals in the restaurant, friendly, helpful staff. Excellent value for money.

Excellent pizzas, but also other selections from a very long menu. Nice place, especially if you sit outside. A little tricky too find as it is in the end of an ally... English menu available and really nice service.

One of those evenings that don't want to cook or mind empty for culinary ideas... Had eaten here in the past but this time, our pizza experience was not that positive... The restaurant itself is like any other, simple and clean and the tables-chairs are quite close to each other. So artificial lighted like in a mess would be better... More

A bit tricky to find because its down a small dead end alleyway and when you walk down the alley you might think "hmm, not sure about this" but rest assured that it was brilliant. particularly liked the mixed seafood starter. At 8pm you might get a seat without reservation; at 9pm it will be packed.

Very nice restaurant in the center of Varese. The staff is friendly and the pizzas very good. Nice seafood as well. Very good quality/price ratio. It is better to reserve in advance because it is very busy (we did not reserve and had to wait about 30 minutes to get a table but it is worth it). Possibility to eat... More
