This cozy bakery/ bistro offers a cozy interior with all typical sweets and bakery stuff of this rich region. I felt in love in its regional dessert called La polentina nad bread stuffed with olives. In addition you can take a seat upstairs and have a rest for while after walking through the old town.

The display is legendary, with all kinds of pizza temptingly shown. The prizes are affordable and the quality is amazing. You can order a take-away piece of pizza- you wait for them to heat it and then enjoy the amazing taste.

We visited this bakery early in the morning. The display of their wide variety of pizzas is so eye catching that you can not walk past this place without stopping to have a look. Tried one of their pizzas and it tasted good but price was on the high side.

My friend and I had lunch here last week. We were very impressed with the vast variety of pizza and salads etc also the lady spoke very good English and was very helpful. You are able to purchase your food and eat it in the restaurant upstairs.

This lovely bakery has a wide selection of foccacias, salads, risotto, pasta & pastries & the coffee is really good too. There is also a spacious eating area upstairs. It's really good value - no wonder it's full of students on weekdays.

Great place for a pit stop with fantastic selection, generous portions are sliced and weighed, heated through to either eat in or take away. Small plates of pasta dishes also available from 6 euros including lasagne.

The expectations were different when a friend suggested this place for a (take away) piece of pizza. the pizzas are tasty, the variety of them big enough but the prices are out of any logic. 7 euros (or even more) for a piece of pizza? yes i agree, the visitors ask for a traditional local food in every country, but,...
