“Small place, sizeable apizza.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

Don't blink or you may walk past Mediterranea. This is a small place, a simple doorway and sign. Inside there are probably no more than 2 dozen seats, so expect to wait in the street outside until your number is called. Wood floors, tables. The pizzas come quickly and are good sized and with plentiful toppings. Affordable.

“Get their early!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

This restaurant is so good that locals line up before it opens. I was recently there (at 7:20 pm, it opens at 7:30 pm) and was thankfully third in line. I was a "porta a via" customer (take out) so it did not matter to me about getting a table, so I could just watch how things played out: within 45 seconds of the doors opening at 7:30 pm the place was full, and within another 15 seconds the next 9 customers had been given a card showing their place in line!

The beautiful thing about all this is that the food is fantastic, the service super fast, and the price is excellent.

We take our friends here when they visit. If you have a large group, they don't take "reservations", but they will likely move a few tables together for you if you ask nicely and are there right at 7:30 pm.

“Good Pizza Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

The pizza is excellent in this lively and popular spot off the main piazza by the Duomo. If you want a more relaxed meal, try their location by Tre Arci off of Corso Cavour.
You only get pizza—no salads or appetizers. But it's the best pizza in town. On a weekend, you may have to wait to get a seat, but it's worth it.

“basic place, excellent pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

It is a very basic place in the very centrum, situated at the ground floor of historical building. Perfectly suitable for a quick lunch. The imbeatable prices (!), quality of ingredients (local cheeses plus traditional mozarella) make this place just perfect. The pizzeria is child friendly (chairs for kids next to the table in a quite part), the service is efficient, friendly and quick. All you can wish for a quality lunch in the center of Perugia for minimal prices and definitely without "fast food" feeling.

“Excellent pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

If you like thick crust pizza, neapolitan style, this is the place for you. Place is very small kind of in and out, sort of speak. The pizza is very well seasoned, service is rushed because they want you out quick. 25 E. for 2 pizzas and 2 soft drinks, not bad.
