Nothing fancy to look at but try the marguerita, freshly out of the oven. Good value street food and very tasty.

Came here because of great reviews but our pizza was quite average, not sure whether it was just the type of pizza we ordered or whether it was just average pizza. Service was great Worth a second chance for sure

Really friendly staff, with a lot of pointing from me we got the right slice, bloody fantastic. Went back next day for lunch and would not hesitate to recommend, especially to solo travellers who do not want a whole pizza. Yumbo

We visited this lovely Pizzeria on two occasions. Got take aways both time. The pizzas and calzones were excellent. The large pizza was enormous. Very friendly and kind staff. Would definitely recommend. Excellent value for money.

We had reached the pizza house according to trip adviser recommendation and we were surprised from the taste and quality. The pizzeria is unassuming but I believed we ate there the best pizza we ate all over our 13 days tour in Italy.

On a recent day trip to Stresa, we stopped at this family run pizza shop based on a review one of our group saw on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The interior of the restaurant is not suited for indoor dining...just a few stools at a counter, but there are benches in town where one can easily enjoy takeout... More

Visited the nice town for a boat trip but we are a little too late for that. So decided to have drinks and dinner. This restaurant has tasteful dishes! Wines they offer are at a normal price. Service was quick and very friendly!

We stopped in here as we didn't want a full meal, just a piece of pizza and a drink. What a surprised. The people were so sweet, the pizza was hot and really excellent, and the price was cheaper than in the USA. They also have various other Italian items and an excellent selection of drinks. The seating is limited... More

Due to the reviews, decided to try the pizza here. The place is quaint, clean and has very limited seating. During our first visit, we tried the pizza by the slice, which was already made pizza that was warmed in the oven. The pizza was good. On our second visit, we chose to order a whole pie, mainly vegetable with... More

We loved this place last year when we were in Stresa, and we loved it this year too. We had a couple of lunches here. Very cheap. Very good quality. We recommend the salsicce e cipolle. Gorgeous. There's a fridge with really cheap beers and soft drinks too. Very friendly staff.
