Having read in TripAdvisor that the chef had won third place in an all Italy pizza making contest in 2014, I expected a really outstanding meal. We ordered a calzone stuffed with various ingredients: ham, various cheeses, artichokes, mushrooms, etc. The dough was the same...More

My husbands parents live here and this is the only pizzeria we will go too. The pizzeria has won many awards and the food speaks for itself. My favorite pizza is the cooked ham, gorgonzola, fontina, and red sauce. Nice area to eat outside too.

Friendly service, and pizzas befitting the 2014 accreditation of 3rd best in the world. Thin crispy base and fresh, well-proportioned toppings and great value. Thoroughly recommended.

Hello you all! I've recently been on a cruise at MSC Fantasia and happened to meet Richard (Rich) the pizzaiolo in charge. He gave me information about Pizzeria Sant'Ampelio in Italy. I'm from Brazil and he asked me some information about the city of Santos in the State of São Paulo and I was supposed to meet him for a special Margherita pizza the day after, but we missed each other. I have the information he needs. So, if this is not much of a trouble to you, could you, please, send me his e-mail? I will soon be back to Europe and will make sure to visit your place. Thank you!
