The pizzoli are very good. The best is the one with chicken and beer. I expected an exceptional pizzolo with horse meat, since Catania is the "capital" of horse meat, but, unfortunately, was not that good. The service was perfect.

Great double-layered pizzas - ours had Italian sausage and was delicious!! We had a good red wine with it, and it was very good value for money.

At La Pizzoleria you don't eat pizzas but pizzoli (pizza with 2 pizza doughs - such as a pie). That's original and delicious. Do not hesitate to share 1 for 2. Try also pizzoli as dessert (with pistachio cream or nutella).

Actually the worst pizza i've eaten. The double pizza was horrible. Three children and two adults. We ordered 3 pizzas which was to much (pizzas are double and consist of ordinary bread and cheese and some bad quality ingridients). Avoid! All of us only took...More
