A fine Italian restaurant with first-rate ingredients used to make really good food.

It was packed out when we went, we had no booking, but they squeezed us in. The service was good, faultless even, and the soup exceptionally good. Then, at my colleague's suggestion we had the pizza. There is only one size -enormous - but it is made thin and crispy like it should be, and topped sparsely, so was not overwhelming but an enjoyable meal.

Wine and beer were good - and cheap.

A good evening. Recommended.

I love it so much that we had our wedding lunch there. Sizes are huge, but in a nice way, lots of the stuff I like (ingredients) and some bread on it on a huge size for a competitive price, it is so good that I would invest in their future and open a franchise.

The food served was of good quality and the pricing was reasonable. Especially the pizza and the risotto were great, the pasta we took was ok but nothing special

This is a tiny "hole in the wall" kind of spot, but the food is authentic and delicious! We dined with an Italian who has very high standards of Italian cooking, and he approves! The margarita pizza, bruschetta, and pasta were delicious! Great comfort food for first night in the city and a long day. Amazing value. Gets busy quickly, make a reservation. Casual, cozy, home style atmosphere. Must go!

The place is kind of small and tight. That means: making a reservation might be recommended and getting from A to B might get challenging... Furthermore, it's not very easy to reach unless you have a car or get on a cab.

The pizzas are big (-big!-): thin crust, tasty tomato sauce and "very Italian" - meaning: they are not overly covered in cheese and the toppings are sparsely spread. I like both as it's very original and not as filling as the pizzas you often find in the US.

If you have an appetizer and/or plan on having dessert it might actually even be enough if you share a pizza with your company. You can also have two different types, each on one half.

I don't know if they belong together but if you feel like pizza and don't want to get all the way out to this pizzeria - try the Osteria downtown; right at the river Pegnitz --> http://www.osteria1.de/. Also very good !! Never disappointed.
