“Good pizza but slow service”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This place serves pretty good pizza. It's not spectacular but it's comparable to what we've had in Italy. The gentleman who served us is from Naples, where pizza originated. So, that's a good sign.

The starter of La Parmagiana (large slice of fried eggplant baked with tomato sauce and grated parmesan on top) was delicious. The forgot to give us bread to accompany the starter though.

We ordered 2 pizzas for mains: the Saporita (mushrooms, ground beef, mozarella and topped with an egg) and the Contadina (artichoke hearts, slices of cured ham, mushrooms and topped with an egg). The pizza crusts were thin and crispy. All ingredients were fresh.

Service though was slow. When I say "slow", I mean it. It took 20 minutes to order and only after we told them to come and take our order. There were only 3 other couples in the restaurant. We ordered a starter and 2 pizzas. We told them that we would like to share the starter. They served the starter and one of the pizzas at the same time, which is bad timing because I ended up eating my pizza long after my dinner companion had finished eating his.

We would go back but only if we aren't in a hurry. It took them another 15 minutes or so to give us the bill. The server did apologise for not serving the main courses at the same time but service is simply slow.

We saw the huge pasta dishes that the other diners ordered. They looked delicious. We may order pasta the next time we're at La Saporita.

They make pasta and pizza for take-out. Quite a few people walked in while we were there to pick up their take-out orders.
Dinner for 2 with 1 starter and 2 mains with tax and tip came to 40 euros.

“Decent Pizza. We only go...”
Reviewed January 15, 2008

Decent Pizza. We only go there if we're short of ideas and want something on our doorstep.
