“Waited so long we left before eating”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

It was very busy the day we went to this restaurant so we expected to wait a bit but eventually we left for lack of any service. While my husband waited at the table to order I waited in a long queue for the bathroom. Some ladies coming out said not to bother going in as it was too awful to use and I heard one of them reporting the problem to a member of staff. I didn't believe it could be that bad so carried on queuing. I was wrong and they were right. We left.

“Friendly Felice”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

This restaurant was 2 mins from La Mimosa where we staying and we went twice in the pouring rain to save having to get wet walking into the city.On our first visit we had pizza which was fine, but just pizza.The second time we got more attentive service , proper wine glasses instead of the tumblers the first time, and "amuse -bouche" from the chef, either because they recognised us or because we ordered more. Lovely Tuscan crostini and autumnal pasta made with chestnut flour and nut sauce. They have quite an extensive selection of European beers, including Wold Top, which comes from a small brewery in our area in East Yorkshire! Used our limited Italian to explain this - lots of laughing and gestures.

“If you're a pizza fan, this is the place for you.”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

The pizza menu has the widest choices I've ever seen, about 8 pages. The rest of the menu is "normal" and the food is excellent.

“pizza by the slice, the historic lucchese way!”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

This place has been around for 60+ years. It's always packed and with good reason - the pizza is hot, fresh, and wonderful. It can be an overwhelming experience, especially in the summer when you add the throngs of tourists to the already large crowd of locals... but it's worth the wait. I recommend adding a bit of salami to the regular margherita pizza. They also make focaccia sandwiches that you can fill wiith various delightful toppings. Great snack when you don't feel like committing to a big sit-down meal, or perfect for when your tummy starts rumbling at 5 pm and you know dinner is still 3+ hours away....
