“Great Pizza!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

The pizza is amazing here, and that's coming from a New Yorker who goes out of his way to find good pizza ;-) My wife and I ate here on numerous occasions while visiting Dolceacqua, Italy and had a pleasant time. It's worth noting; check the specials for the day on the chalk board before ordering. Get there before 7:30PM / 19:30 if you want to have a good chance of getting an outdoor seat in the summer for dinner. They also have pizza to go/take away.

“Magnifico”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We joined a long queue and were seated 45 minutes later, and we were so so glad we waited...The service was quick and friendly and everything - Tortellini with ceps, Tagliatelle with fish, enormous pizza and moules marinara was totally delicious, hearty and really well presented. Finished off with Tiramisu and lemon tart and very good coffee - this is the only place i would eat in at Dolceacqua. The restaurant was full of large parties of local people all enjoying themselves - always a good sign.

“"Possibly the best pizza in the known world"”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I quote my cousin who I was staying with for a week. While that may be a bit of an exaggeration, the pizza I ate was indeed very good. Service was fine until it came to paying the bill, our waiter disappeared and no one else would come to us. Oddly, each waiter seemed to have tables dotted about the place, not in the more normal zonal system. Eventually we did manage to pay the very reasonable bill.

“A very good italian experience”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

If you're in for good pizzas, pasta's and an italian night out this place would certainly do the trick. The service is quick, a bit chaotic but very friendly. The chaotic part is typical for italians as all of us know. The ambiance of Dolceaqua is very nostalgic. We ate here several times and all of them were good.

“Nice food!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

The pizza and the fried calamares/shrimps were excellent. The service a bit laidback and slow. Nice bar to the left playing live music on Saturdays.
