Been frequenting this family restaurant for more than 35 years. Never been disappointed - absolutely the best pizza in the world. Thin bread and generous delicious toppings. Very popular so requires reservations any time of the evening. Always full despite big expansion programme. Try out the "gigante" and the "nuraghe" pizzas and if you fancy pasta go for the "tortellini... More

This is one of these places, food and staff are a perfect match. Great to visit in the summer when the terraces are open! Went there a few times, and was disappointed only once.. due to lack of staff it took forever to get our food served. We complained heavily about it and the bill was drastically reduced.... This positive... More

My daughter and I had a pizza and Tiramisu for desert. The pizza 's were great. The tiramisu looked like it came from a machine, tube-like. Not so great. The staff were very friendly. They communicate mainly in Italian with eachother, adding to the Italian atmosphere.

Food is fairly average, but service is fast and friendly. Prices are very reasonable, so it's good value for the money.

Great place to eat. It is larger then expected but is was full on a Sunday evening. We didn't reserve a table but we're able to get anyway for a bit over an hr. We succeeded to order en finish our food within time, pizza and lasagna which were both very good. I recommend to reserve ahead of time.

Very cosy nice decoration and very nice staff. Food delicious but really slow service you have to get their attention three times after one and a half hour sitting to order the dessert and you get the folder but you have to wait 15 minutes longer to have them back. If you wish to eat italian food and you don't... More

With a group of 8 persons we had dinner at this Italian restaurant. We were starving ad we had done a 33km rowing tour. However, they could not offer a table, but a seat at the bar with drinks and food. Very nice people. Friendly and quality food. Thats explains why it was so crowdy ;)

My wife and I have lunch (in the Cantina) here nearly every Saturday and we had during our 24 years in Alphen aan den Rijn many times dinner, with the two of us or with the whole family.
