We were tired after the drive over the border from Prizren and dropping friends at the airport. We chose here as it was a lovely sunny day and the restaurant felt light & bright even though it was getting towards the end of the afternoon. There is an extensive Italian menu but we both felt like pizza and weren't disappointed... More

Was vising twice and always delighted by friendly, professional staff and great food . A bit more expensive than other restaurants but for turists and expatriates a good deal. Will come back again.

Been there five times during our last couple of visits in Tirana and we are looking forward for the next one. It is a twist of the other Artigiano restaurant in Tirana, which brings part of the original menu, but it is also focused on traditional albanian and italian dishes. We tried most of the classics and new plates and... More

This is a nice place for a quick lunch. Service is better than average. The food is ok, although some dishes are quite good but quite expensive. They make some good pizza although there are times when it does not turn out that good.

A very good place to have a lunch on a sunny day, with good food, nice wine. The ricotta with walnuts and olive oil was a treat.

We booked at Artigiano at Vila for a dinner with friends. Bledi, the manager, warmly welcomed us, seated us at the best table on the terrace and gave us a briefing on the menu and the specialties. After a Mediterranean dinner with fish, pasta and risotto, accompanied with a red Kallmet Arbri wine, we were suggested to try the home... More

I have been out of Albania for a year but now back on a short trip. Coming back to this restaurant is like coming home. Good food, friendly staff and a nice outdoor area for the summer. The menue was updated but still a lot of good oven baked pizzas.
