This is definitely the first good pizza I've eaten in the Netherlands (...after 10 years). It's very similar to "pizza napoletana" but not as good as the real one.
The restaurant is really small and the service is a bit chaotic. We ordered a small pizza for our son but we got a big one. They also deliver pizza and the delivery guys enter from the same door used by the guests....this goes on the whole evening so if you are sitting close to the entrance it becomes quite annoying and really cold in the winter.

If you look for the true Italian pizza (Napolitan-style) this is the place to go!
The owners are really kind and they offer a good service.
The pizza is really authentic with good ingredients and cooked in a wooden oven.
I definitely recommend it!

As an Italian immigrant this is one of the best pizza I had outside Italy. Pasquale and her wife offer a great service and the food is first quality. We go there regularly and can only recommend it.
