If anyone is looking to try the pizzolo there is no other better place than this. Mostly in the summer they have an amazing veranda on top of a hill so the ambience is a WOW. The bill will even surprise

DO NOT order the pistachio dessert pizzoli. It had no pistachio at all, tasted only of almond essence and had so much sugar and artificial green colour in it that... More

They also serve "pizzolos" which is pizza dough on top and bottom with the filling in between - just divine! They also... More
