Very nice pizza! The option for students is the best. It’s perfect for two or three people. The pizza is handmade and the beer is great

Nice atmosphere and good beer. In the “garden” Italian guys make a good pizza by wood oven. We’ll go back.

I think the cost was about €10 and includes tasting. Really worth it. We had a pizza afterwards, guess it depends on the time you arrive there and how hungry you are....
