“Basic restaurant with good pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Located in a not very nice area, close to the offices and industrial part of the town, this small restaurant is one of the few of the block.
No parking area, just some public places by the main road.
The menu is basic even if they try to do something special, the result is not the best they can have.
On the other side pizza is good.
The restaurant is small and the space between the tables is not enough for a private conversation, sometimes, when is crowded, you have less than 10 cm between one table and the other.
The service is just ok, they should try to smile a little bit more.
Price is slightly higher than average, especially considering the quality and the location.

“Best Pizza We Had in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Such a lovely local restaurant with such a quaint family feel. We don't speak Italian and our waiter did not speak very good English, but we found way to communicate and the end result was the best pizza we had during our entire visit.
This lovely restaurant was recommended by the staff at our hotel and we are so glad they gave us the recommendation. It was so good we went back twice.
Fabulous pizza and the house specialty that was a seafood pasta in a skillet type dish was amazing. I think they called it the Antica Fontana.
Such a family feel, we met others dining in the restaurant and all made us feel like family. We will definitely go back. I guess you can tell by all of the reviews in Italian that this restaurant is also a favorite of the local clientele. That counts!!!!
