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.

We are not pizza lovers, but were staying at Villa Ketty, owned by the same family and parked our hire car in the Pizza Metro car park as instructed. Huge, brightly lit but excellent food, very professional service and you didn't need to have pizza, it's a full menu restaurant that I might otherwise have walked past. Go there.

Despite ordering in good italian, the wrong beer and wine arrived and they 'forgot' the water. 3 of 4 main courses arrived at the same time as the starters. The 4th starter arrived 10 minutes later and the 4th main course 40 minutes later. The food was at best mediocre. A good place for people watching and you'll have plenty of time to do it. A real disappointment!

Vico Equense is famous for it's pizza by the metre so a visit to Gigino is a must if in the area. Our service wasn't great, our waiter wasn't very interested in what we were saying and part of our metre didn't have the right toppings but this was rectified by another waiter who couldn't have been more helpful. The pizza wasn't the best we ever had but for a once off experience it was very enjoyable.

I am not a great Pizza lover, but I enjoyed sharing the metre long Pizza's with the rest of our Saga group and they were very tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful and the dessert trolley to die for, it was a hard choice and in the end the profiteroles won smothered in rich dark chocolate.
I cannot comment on the price or reservations as this was an organised trip.

if you are on vacation or have spent a day on the Sorrento coast, then you can stop to eat a good cake in this historic restaurant in the area, you can choose what you like, it will be done .... do not expect the pizza, it is not area of the Neapolitan pizza, and if you want to taste something local, then do not waste your time .... the typical sweet lemon delight of the whole area, for the rest of the media also in the costs, let's say 4 people eating a meter of pizza , and a piece of cake each, with water and beer are the order of ��80
