Quite an unoriginal title. The same can be said for this restaurant. Is this a bad thing? Certainly not - it's simply a statement of fact. Italian restaurants, Asian restaurants, etc... none of these can be original. What of "Authenticity" - well one finds many of these too. There is nothing original about this restaurant but it is truly authentically Italian. If this is what you're after, then, hey, this is an option you may want to consider.
The owner, the waiters, the cooks - all Italian. We actually asked about their nationality and were told they were from all over Italy. The owner himself was from "Bella Napoli" - always nice to hear when eating at a pizza/pasta place.
We tried the oven cooked eggplant in tomatoe pulp sauce and topped by grill-melted parmesan cheese. Delish!! The restaurant does have steaks and fish on the menu, however it's my impression it mainly specialises in pizza and pasta, and would therefore recommend you go for these dishes. I can almost guarantee you'll go for the pizza as the first thing your eyes will catch when you enter is the wood fueled oven pizza, and the pizza makers busy at work in the middle of the restaurant. And my opinion of the pizza? MMM MMM MMM! Since this might not be technical enough, i'll break it down further...
Toppings... well this really involves just putting a number of ingredients on the pizza base. They are also very accomodating with modifying slightly ingredients. I myself am a newly born vegan (hehe). The menu does not cater for "our kind". It does have a vegetarian pizza which as I said, was able to remove mozarella from the list of ingredients it was topped with.
The toppings tasted very fresh, but as I said adding toppings is not a feat itself. Getting the pizza base right is! Here the pizza makers got it right once again. Their pizza based scored at 10 out of max of 10. This little anecdote may further help you understand how good the pizza is; the neighbouring table ordered their pizza (one each)... ate their pizza... and ordered another (note: they didn't seem like they'd been starved or were they gluttons).
The evening was topped off by a good italian coffee and the traditional limoncello.
Our hosts, spoke good Itanyol (Italian/Spanish) and very good English.
I'll close off by saying - this is the second time i've tried it and quality has been consistent. I will definitely keep it in mind when i'm craving an authentic Italian meal!
