Had the pleasure of sitting at a river view table and having Aldo serve us two delicious meals. One was their special polenta with beef stew and the other was a bronzino prepared in the Ligurian style. Don’t miss out on this gem!

The place is very nice, I've been there plenty of time; The menu offers a huge variety of Pizzas and similar and also you can even choose the type of dough (classic, complete, spinach and also a special one for people which have Coeliac disease).

Truly, a great, traditional Italian pizzeria. Overlooking the river, next to the old bridge, a great restaurant with an authentic wood oven, producing proper pizza - at proper prices. A must visit.
