This busy little restaurant serves fantastic traditional Italian pizza. It has a slightly rustic, homey, ambiance (brick walls, high ceilings, wooden seating) although it seemed a little warm inside so we opted for one of the 4-tables available on the sidewalk just outside. The street is very quiet at night so we made the best of the typical warm Montevideo summer evening. Service was great. Together, we shared 2-pizzas and a litre of house wine which came to approx 40$US. Everything was mouth-watering, aromatic and fresh tasting - no disappointments. The Cuatro Stagioni was a mix of tasty cheese, fresh tomatoes, ham, anchovies, mushrooms, olives; the only difficulty was deciding which of the 'four seasons' to try first. With the eclectic selection of pizzas available on the menu, it's a good idea to try different topping on each half. For our 2nd pizza we chose salmon on one side (the smoked salmon, cheese and fresh radicchio combination was delicioso) and for the less adventurous, pizza capricious. I'd eaten here a few years ago and it was as good as I remembered!

Cute little restaurant in an area which does not have much else to say for itself. We were delighted when some hot onion topped pizza crust came out for the table. It was a delicious start to the night. We then ordered the Quattro Formaggio pizza, Ensalada Verde and Pennette alla S...omething (basically a Penne pasta with a napolitana sauce & small amount of spice). All were simple dishes however prepared well with fresh ingredients and bucketloads of flavour. The evening was topped with a perfect matching Malbec (served a the perfect temparature for a warm Montevidean night) to go with the food and a lovely Apple Crumble and Ice Cream for dessert (postre). A really nice surprise for a restaurant in such a location.
