Description: Welcome to PIZZAMETROPizza a Metro from "Gigino" - as known as the university of pizza - is the historic pizzeria in Vico Equense, in the province of Naples. Its founder, Gigino Dell'Amura, has the merit of having invented, in the 30's, "pizza by the meter", from the characteristic Mediterranean flavor, which has become known today in the Italian culinary tradition as in that of the whole world.Pizza a Metro has, over the years, become the "University of Pizza" thanks to the quality of the ingredients used, the variety of pizzas offered, and of course, the unmistakable taste of true Neapolitan pizza.Pizza a Metro is also a restaurant where you can enjoy a wide variety of delicious Neapolitan dishes hand made, including fresh seafood quality certified and guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning palates.

“Unforgettable Pizza”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Sorry to take so long posting this review but we came home from holidays to problems and it has taken me this long to give back to TA.
We were picked up at our apartment in Rome by car and transferred to Positano, stopping for a tour of Pompeii, organised by the car company. I will also review the car company later.
It was getting quite late and we were hungry and wanting lunch and our driver, Carlo ,suggested we stop at a Pizza Restaurant on our way, it was somewhere we would never have found without him.
Because it was so late we weren't sure if they would still be open or if they would seat us but people still came in after us.
There were 5 of us including Carlo.
It was already quite hot, we were shown out onto the terrace that was covered in Bamboo, very comfortable to be outside but not in the sun and the heat. We were the only tourists there. It is actually a locals favoured eating place but as you can see from the photos they preferred to sit inside, I hope it wasn't anything we said.
When the waiter came out, Carlo made suggestions, we ordered the 1 metre Pizza with 4 toppings my friend asked for a topping that was not on the menu, obviously an Aussie invention. They were happy to oblige but we decided we wanted their typical toppings, we wanted to be locals for lunch.
Amazing, the best pizza we had during our month in Italy, thank you Carlo.
We had the Pizza, 2 beers, 2 vino and 1 water, poor Carlo and a terrific experience for 68 Euro. Would I go back? You betcha...
