Right next to the canal. My husband said his pizza was one of the best he has ever eaten (and he has eaten several!). I had beef pasta, which was delicious. Service was quick - though the restaurant was quite quiet.

Pizzas were good and quickly cooked. However, the rest of the service can only​ be described as poor. Took 3 requests to get water and 2 for bill, despite the fact that we'd finished eating and drinking a long time ago. Other guests beware if this bothers you: smoking is allowed across the whole of the outside terrace.

My wife and I shared a Mista pizza (pepperoni, cheese, mushrooms) and it was great! Crust was a thin, brick oven style. The bruschetta was okay too... The service was prompt and no problems. The location right on the canal was amazing. Price was good too... We didn't have it, but I was eye-ballin' a plate of spiral pasta on... More

For such a 'small' location it uses the space perfectly. Personnel is friendly and has respect. Food is good and quick on the table.

Good to sit outside on a sunny day next to the canal but don't expect to be amazed by the food. Typical touristic place I would say.

Visited here on a very busy Saturday night. You can see the pizzas being freshly made and going into the wood fired oven. Pizzas and house wine were very good and reasonably priced. Enjoyable place and service was good too. Would recommend if you are in Utrecht.

It is a "typical" italian restaurant, busy but friendly, we had dinner there and received a warm welcome even in a packed house. The lasagna I had was good, the pizzas I tried were good as well. The waiters were really friendly and helpful, the place itself has a lovely atmosphere and good location. Very good meal for decent price... More
