Excellent pizza especially considering the gas oven; good variety of choices; staff is very polite and friendly; nice atmosphere; overall a very good choice for a pizza night; only tiramisù della casa did not meet the expectation (chocolate cream on top killed the taste)

OK, the surroundings are not the most appealing n Basel. But hey, this place is about the pizza. And, wow, pizza they surely do! Folks from Napoli, so they know what they're doing. Splendid ingredients + wood oven = super tasty. Did not yet get...More
