This is a proper Italian pizzeria. Don't expect lots of expensive frills but if you are looking for somewhere to eat great pizzas then this is a really good option. It is always a good sign if a restaurant is used by the locals, as this is. It is a bit of a walk from the hotels opposite the Lido ferry (as you look at the canal, turn left and keep going straight on for about 20 minutes - the pizzeria is at the end of a row of shops next to a garage) but worth it. Very friendly and efficient service and not over priced like the restaurants you will find nearer the main tourist sights.

Went for dinner on a Monday night. It was a 25 minute walk fron the Lido ferry that was most definately worth it! The food was the highlight. Best pizza and pasta i have had on this trip through Italy, even the table bread was the best. Definately a local hangout as it is in a local area with a good atmosphere. Found ourselves a little lost to sit inside or out for food. Definately if you find yourself in a hurry come back when you have time, the food is spread out, but definately worth it! 2 x pizza 1 x pasta 1 x soufle desert, 3 x house wine (awesome) 1 x laffe beer and still water - $48

Tucked in besides the garage on the Malamoco Rd 6 mins by A,B, and circular bus route from Pte S.m.elisabeth, the water bus stop for Lido, it's great. All been said before, but in addition it's quiet, in or out, well used by locals and their pets. Extremely friendly. Food was some of the cheapest and best we had all week. House wine 10€ litre. After a boring meal on the Sorriso Beach restaurant at lunch the previous day with Peroni at 9€ 1/2 litre, we walked out very contented from 161 with a bill of less than 49€. If staying at nearby Hotel Sorriso or going to the free beach past the sunshades this is a must. We're back there tomoz, can't wait.

We were recommended this ristorante by our hotel and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, it was a great experience. We went back a second night as the food was AMAZING and well worth a couple of visits.
