“Good pizza base, average ingredients”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

We visited Pizzeria El Sol on a Sunday night, off season, with only one person serving and cooking, so this review is subject to that context! We ordered pizzas only, the bases were very good but the toppings were very average, in a country that produces such delicious tomatoes, ham, cheese and vegetables, to use mass produced supermarket ingredients is a shame. The pizzas tasted OK, but we have had better elsewhere in Italy...whether these are the best in Maratea as suggested, I cannot confirm but I would be surprised. The desserts were also a little disappointng, partly becuase many werent available. We ordered fig tart, ok but overly sweet, ot helped by the very sweet cherry sauce on top, and tartufo (advertsed on the menu as from Pizzo, but sadly a Carte D'Or, Unilever product). Atmosphere is garish and with the TV on, not sopleasant. service was friendly. I would not return before trying the many other pizzerias in the area.
