Rudeness and ignorance both in eating and in behavior toward us has been really horrible. It is obvious that you do not even know what you eat because the pecorino sauce in any recipe in the world does not put in the green pepper fillet,...More

I strongly disadvice. I took pizza salami picante, my husband margherita. Pizzas looked like frozen, heated in microwave and tasted exactly the same way. As stated before - one of the worst pizzas we had during our 1.5 yrs stay in Italy!
