Was looking for a nice pizzeria away from the hotel and stumbled across this place. It was absolutely perfect. Lovely atmosphere, gorgeous food and reasonably priced. Would recommend.

A great pizza restaurant situated 5 minutes walk from Aemelia Hotel. If you don't fancy another walk into the historic centre this is highly recommended. Don't be put off by the locality. It's a lovely place inside and in the garden.

Wide range of typical Italian pizza alongside with good wine. Rather cheap place to enjoy date night or evening with friends. Staff didn't speak English very well, but it doesn't matter.

Arrived quite late to our hotel and asked at the front desk for the best pizza. So they recommended here. Took us just under 10 mins to walk. Were seated straight away. Amazing pizzas brought straight over from the oven. Huge for between 6,50€ to 9,00€, excellent value. We were impressed

We were staying at the Amelia hotel and were recommended this from the front desk. We walked 5 minutes down the street and found this local gem. They made our pizza in 5 minutes, and it was awesome. Do not miss this great place.

This restaurant is all about .... GREAT PIZZA! It's situated under a flyover on the Via San Donato but don't let that put you off. We were staying at the Hotel Aemelia so it was an easy 10 minute stroll from our hotel to this restaurant. We had asked the guys at reception for "great pizza" and this was their... More

The waiters are friendly and the mood is pleasant. I tried the pizza San Daniele, even if it's a bit pricey at 9 euros it was really good. I definitely recommend it!

This pizzeria is really a great place. The pizzas arrived in 2 minutes time (literally), were rather large and extremely tasty. They have deals with german breweries for beers, and they have a broad range of deserts. A bit away from the city center, but really worth it.

il sellaio is just wonderful. it is a 5-7 minute bus ride on the #20 going the "pilastro " direction from downtown. get off at the SANT`EGIDIO bus stop, and it is within 50 feet. from the outside it doesn't look like much, but inside it is rustically charming. the wood fired oven and the bustling staff turn out a...
