The pizza list is very, very long with pizza recipes from all over Italy! Lots of seafood-based and meat-based dishes too. Recommended!

Good stuff, found by accident. Had pizza Nicola's, Nicolas himself showed me how he made it, and then served it with pride. Highly recommended.

Just walking around Piazza San Martino, lunch time, and we spotted this place, it is quite a large restaurant, very busy, but nonetheless they found a table for us and we ate great food, with house wine. Everything was very good and tasty. I didn't have any issues with overcharging like some fellow reviewers have mentioned. They even offered a... More

We both had seafood starter's they were both really lovely and big as well, we had a sharing pizza as well and this pizza was amazing, I was so sad I couldn't manage much of it. The waitress and waiter and manager were all very nice and friendly people.

What a busy restaurant! People were queuing outside but we did not have to wait long for a table. Woodfired pizza is always good in my eyes and this pizza was fantastic. Great atmosphere, full of Italians as well as tourists. We even went back for lunch two days later and the pasta was also good.

Very popular restaurant serving good simple food. A good choice of local dishes and pizzas. Friendly staff. Generous portions at affordable prices. The highly drinkable house wine was availiable in a jug of 50cl or 1l. Popular with families on Sunday lunchtime.

Restaurant sells pasta, pizza and fish - everything done in a southern Italy style. Food is excellent, but it's all for nothing as they attempt to rip off tourists by increasing the service or other charges - something I thought was confined to the 1980's - but maybe not. Everything was fine until we went to pay the bill which... More

Found this Pizzeria on a quiet street and were drawn in by the huge variety of Pizza on offer and the sight of a fire pit oven. Traditional italian cafe with friendly service, menu in Italian and English and good value at 26 euros for two beers and two massive (12") pizzas. Service was quick and efficient and the quality...
