“Worst service we have had this trip”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant because we had heard it is the birthplace of pizza. It was very crowded when we arrived and the owner or manager that was seating people was quite rude. He sat us in a table in the room across the street which was ok. The atmosphere was nice and there were two servers assigned to our section of the restaurant. We ordered the margarita pizza because that is what they are famous for. It was all right but definitely not the best pizza we have had. The service was awful throughout our entire visit. The waiters were rude and not attentive at all. It took almost an hour for our one pizza to come out. I asked for the bill when we were done because the servers were simply not visiting our table and they completely ignored me. I asked 3 more times, still nothing. Finally we just went up to the front where the owner/ manager was again very rude to us. The bathrooms were also disgusting g a smelled like urine. This was by far the worst dining experience we have had in the three weeks we have been in Italy. There are other pizzerias with attentive, friendly servers. I would not recommend this restaurant at all.

“Nice place, with very good service”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

My son, who could live on pizza wanted to come here. It's a very nice restaurant with efficient friendly service. Pizza is fine, but not the best...I suppose you come here to say you have been to the home of the pizza, but we all agreed that we had had better.

“Best Pizzas EVER!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This restaurant had a big reputation and since we were staying in Chiaja hotel de Charme just around the corner, just had to pay a visit. We weren't disappointed. It was the best pizza I have ever eaten. Shared a Marghuerita ( which it is famous for creating ) and one with prosciutto crudo with my wife. This is worth walking over hot coals for. MAGNIFICO !!!

“Best pizza ever”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Pizza was born there. Best pizza taste.Took some time to get our order, but worth the wait. Just cannot tell you how happy I was to find the place, never heard about it before. If you go to Napoli and don't have pizza there, you are missing a lot

“Very good pizza. So so service”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Ate here on the basis of the fact that the pizza margharita was invented here.
Pizzas were truly excellent, much better than those available in other countries.
Service was quite impersonal. Waiters explained to everyone sitting down that there would be a 20-30 minute wait for the pizzas (in reality they were served sooner), giving you the impression that they were not really interested in your business.
All in all - the quality of the food overcomes the service, especially given the history.
