We ate here twice, one night having pizza, which was really good, and the other night pasta with fresh seafood. Both nights were very tasty. House wine is also very good and very inexpensive.

Typical local restaurant with good dishes and great pizza. Dishes so simple with good price/quality. For us it iconic place because here we eat south-Italy dishes firstly;) Pluses: authentic dishes, reasonable prices, great pizza, friendly owner. Opportunities: only cash payments

We have visited this restaurant loads of time and different times of the year. To me it has the best pizza in town. Service was good and quality is very good. I love the house white wine too.
