Met a friend for a quick lunch and enjoyed a good pizza at this place. It is a nice rustic place with a long shared table available for those without reservations. Menu is the standard Italian range and slightly pricey probably due to its central Basel location and decently healed clients from the neighboring professional services companies. My daily special...

A busy evening but they found us a table for two and the service was efficient. Some bread and salami were good to nibble whilst waiting for the pizzas we’d ordered. When these arrived, they were large, tasty and with generous toppings. I would certainly return and, from seeing what nearby diners had ordered, be confident in ordering any of... More

If you just fancy a pizza at the weekend (they are on offer for CHF15) you had better order a side dish as well even if you don't feel like it. Our waiter became rather impatient with us as it was all we wanted: a nice fresh pizza! Do we have to accommodate the restaurant or are they here to... More

This place is OK, the food is acceptable, the pizza was well cooked (I had the Sciliana) and the service was polite and attentive. Not spectacular but acceptable.

Olive oil is obviously the favorite ingredient in this restaurant. My chicken salad was tasty but very greasy. All the food we ordered was very oily. Also, we sat close to the pizza oven which smells very burnt. Would advise anyone to ask for a spot in the front of the restaurant.

We went for a business dinner. The place was full. The interior is very nice on a rainy day, warm colors. Service was mediocre though - very kind but time to time quite inattentive. Food is good but nothing spectacular - however they have more reasonable prices than most other restaurants in town.
