Absolutely love it.
Has gone through many architectural changes but food remains great.
Great pizza oven and the past is really tasty!
Good wine choice!
Friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

“Best Pizza, genuine Italian, chaotic service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2011

We've been there a couple of times: Very good Pizza, probably one of the best in Basel, Pasta is all right, but certainly not stellar. Decent wine list.
Don't bother with a reservation if you're less than 4 persons; table will not be available anyway or you have to wait a redicilous amount of time to be seated at a crap place as they obviously double book and hope to have some space to squeeze you in by the time you come. So best it to see if they have space, ask for a table you like and enjoy the excellent Pizza and italian atmosphere, which can be chaotic from time to time.

Love this place. Relaxed, informal Italian atmosphere, but always busy and buzzing. Staff are very good, menu is excellent and food is excellent. Great!

“excellent spaghetti pescatore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2011

Once you get over how expensive everything is in Basel, this meal is a real deal, and delicious. They give you lots of really good seafood: mussels, including two big plump New Zealand green mussels, calamari, octopus, shrimp, crab and a big langoustine. There's a lovely outdoor patio, and the bread is really good too.
