This was one of the few restaurants open (not in the season). The service is fast and kind, although they come across as rushed, despite it being a rather slow night. The edges of the pizza were burnt but the rest was good, and more than I could finish. The location does make it very touristy, with no Italians and... More

Enormous pizzas with delicious tastes and so fresh! It is a perfect place for a dinner - be there in time before 7 pm if you would like a table. Nice view over the old town and harbour and afterwards it is perfect with a stroll in the old town and an ice cream

Was here in late Sept. 2016. Quiet elsewhere in town but this pizzeria was packed & the pizzas looked so good from a distance we decided to eat there. We were not disappointed. They were fabulous - big & gorgeous !!! And ... we were entertained by a group of locals & visitors celebrating a birthday with full on singing... More

We visited La Bella Idrusa based on TripAdvisor and recommendation from our hotel, but it was bitterly disappointing. Having spent almost two weeks touring Puglia, we've been spoiled with fantastic pizzerias, alas this is not one of them. It's all about table turnover, getting diners in and out as quickly as possible. The service is therefore quick, drinks arrived swiftly... More

Highly rated in guidebooks but total disappointment. The starters were bland (even tho we ordered the house specialty), THE pizza WAS served with unripe tomatoes, barely any olive oil, tasteless eggplant garnish. Reasonable prices but quite worthless.

My tip, unless you are very hungry is to share a pizza as they come up about 14 inches across. At about 6 to 6.5€ they are great value and the toppings are generous and tasty.

We were recommended this pizzeria by the people who owned our apartment and went with friends - and on our own - and it was very good! It's obviously the best around judging by how busy it always was! The pizzas are large and very tasty, but I'm not the greatest pizza fan, so not a good critic. Everyone else... More

If you are in a hurry and need a pizza, here is a place to go. Big rush hour at around 7-8pm and queues of people. The pizza are super large but not to write home about!
