I was there few years ago and the pizza was just great! Now unfortunately everything had changed. The dough used to be very thin and crispy but now is fat and the taste is not the same.
The owner is still that same and plays guitar, that's cook.

We went to Il Boccone after eating Portuguese food for two weeks. We had pizza and salad and both were delicious and very good quality. There are also pastas and main meals from which to choose. The wine list was mainly Italian and small but we had the house wine and it was good. The prices are reasonable and it is worth a visit when staying in Peniche.

A good place and we went there 3 times. The children preferred this to seafood. The family sized pizza was good, as was the three pasta meal. Personally I didn't think it was haute cuisine and it was a bit basic, but the kids loved it. Overall very friendly and good with the children. They could do with changing the menu to put some more interesting things on it since it hasn't changed at all since last year. There are loads of Italian fish dishes which would have been nice. The pizza selection was a bit limited. You get what you pay for and at least they don't foist unwanted starters on you like other restaurants in the area. Be warned, they don't take cards.

Having dragged our teenagers to Seafood Restaurants all week we promised a pizza on the last night. This little restaurant is situated close to the harbour. The staff are really friendly and there is a nice atmosphere . We sat in the conservatory area but if you go inside there is a big glass wall and you can watch the pizzas being made. Local lager on tap and usual soft drinks. We ordered a range of Pizza and pasta. All was freshly prepared , hot and tasty. Strange tastes accomadated - pineapple and tuna pizza for my daughter ! Dishes arrived when cooked rather than all together but I prefer that if it means piping hot food.

Puddings were clearly home made , Tiramisu was lovely.

Including 8 large beers and some soft drinks, 6 puddings and 8 main courses the bill was a very reasonable 80 Euros . Teenagers declared it best food in Peniche ! Would definately go back.
