They do serve fresh pizza though, we ordered lasagna and ravioli and a piece of roasted chicken. Food taste were ok but most food were pre cooked. They just heat up in the microwave. A plate of 3 pcs of watermelon costs 3euro, a bit...More

It all looked delicious and most of it actually was. But since we received it all cold, the taste was not the same as if some of the items were warm. We had each a dish with separate items: I had mushrooms (way too salty),...More

Definitely very orange, diner decor. Very good value. Very cheap prices. Lots of locals. Don't go for the ambiance but for a cheap, fast, hot good meal. Fast service.

Trip Advisor clearly doesn't get the difference between diner and restaurant. If you want red wine from the "fridge", pizza and the atmosphere of D'Angelos, this place is for you. Otherwise check out the Trattorias and restaurants around the main Piazzas. Good luck.

From the outside, this looks like a standard fastfood outlet, with no traditional atmosphere, but venture in anyway, as the pizza are excellent and rather enormous too. Really good value for the quality of food. Worth seeking out if you want to taste a real...More

An enormous pasta dish, a strawberry fruit cup, a glass of wine, and a bottle of mineral water... all for 10 Euro. The pasta was very good—I tried a classic Sicilian dish, maccheroncini with a creamy pistachio sauce—and the prices are unbeatable. The speciality is...More

This place makes amazing and cheap pasta and pizza's. Do not let the rather simple look cheat you about the quality of the food here.
