    Try the Murino (pear + gorgonzola) pizza with pancetta! The salty, savory meat goes perfectly with the other flavors of this pie.

    Get the desert that begins with a Z. It is basically pizza dough stuffed with Nutella with hazelnuts, sliced pear, and peaches on top. It was more than enough for 6 adults.

    Love the pizza, and the salads are light, just right with the pizza. Finish off with their gelato.

    Wildly overrated. Pizzas are delicate little discs of flavorless cracker, skimpy on sauce and toppings. Just order a salad, you say? Even worse.
