This is the best pizza we've ever had. The crust had a wonderful flavor and was very light. Actually, everything we ordered, from the aged beef carpaccio to the salad and then the dessert, was delicious. Great ambiance and service, too. Wish we had realized that the restaurant was open prior to our last night in Gioiosa Ionica last week.

It is a nice place for a Neapolitan pizza, it's a good pizza. I really enjoyed the antipasto Bufalina, it comes with a very tasty burrata and prosciutto crudo 24m old and a great hot focaccia. The cheesecake with frutti di bosco was also good.

Was told to go to this place by some expats we met that now live in Gioiosa.

Pizza was great, service was good and as it was the middle of summer we sat on tables restaurant had set up outside in the square across the road.

Reasonable priced as well.

We visited in the month of August which is the busiest time of the year in southern Italy.
You need reservations days in advance or need to wait for the last reserved seating,
but it is worth it. Perhaps the best pizza we have had in Italy if you are into
Napolitan style of pizza. It is like home made and the tables are on the open in the
terrace across the church. The view and experience are awesome. Wine selection is limited and service may get slow if to busy. Price is very affordable.They offer other dishes that are excellent as the filetto al pepe verde. Don't miss it if you are in the area.
