I was so impressed by this restaurant! The food is pure Italian, as the owner "Nino" comes from Italy and you can see he really takes care of his customers (the day we went he was there receiving everybody and checking on people). The food was very very delicious, but mostly, I was gladly impressed by the fresh focaccia they... More

We ordered pizza and pasta arrabiata. The food is simply delicious, the staff is kind and they speak english. The prices are midrange, the quality of the food is excellent though. The place is located near to the Lions Rock, so the view is really good. If you are in town you should definitely come to this place. A boda-boda... More

I have been visiting this place several times and they have been improving their service every time. The pizza we had was great (Checken Pizza) and you should try their Beef Mishikaki with chips. Compared to other places the waiting is short and it is worth waiting for your meal while having a drink. I would recommend it to other... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here on valentinesday. The atmosphere and furniture is very nice, the garden is beautiful and well maintained with a great playground for kids. The pizzas were good and we were happy that we could try the local wine. The rucola for the pizza was picked right in front of us from a herb garden.... More

I have eaten here many times with large groups and never have been disappointed. The most recent time I ate some of their pizza. It's a family friendly atmosphere and there is a place you can play putput golf. They are able to prepare the food in a reasonable time especially the pizzas. They also have awesome roasted meat. There... More

As residents of Dodoma, we frequently visit this place and without doubt the pizza's are the best in a circle of 400 km around. As the family who owns it a real Italians, what else would you expect? Sometimes there are also fresh, home made, pasta's available (ravioli) and there definitively worth a try. Drinks are always cool and they... More

I ordered a pizza prosciutto et funghi to my place last week. When I called to make the order, they were very friendly. The food was delivered quickly and it was delicious! I would definitely order food from this restaurant again.

Very nice and welcoming place! Friendly and caring staff! Beautiful atmosphere at sunset and good music during dinner! In particular, I suggest to taste scaloppina, mishkaki and every kind of pizza...and do not miss the chance to have a chat with the owners Nino and Giovanna!

Came here desperate for some decent food, as a vegetarian my options in Dodoma were seriously limited. It was fine, the pasta was a bit dry, the staff seemed pretty unconcerned and bored, and we kept having to go to the bar to ask for drinks, salt, etc. Distinctly average, sadly!

I took alarge group of charity workers to the Pizzeria and the service was wonderful- very friendly and welcoming, with quick service and no confusion!
