Shared pasta carbonara and Quattro fromaggio pizza, both were very good. Also tried the Nutella Pizza for dessert—decadent!

PIzzas are amazing. Service can get a bit slow, though the atmosphere compensates it

Vega antipasta was excellent as were the pizza and pasta.
Some of the best pizza crust we've ever had.
The desserts were very disappointing (lemon tiramisu looked ridiculous and tasted watered down and panna cotta was smothered in a caramel sauce that was too sweet and lacked any special taste.)
We'll still go back for the pizza and friendly service.

We have been planning to go this place for a long time, because we have heard good reviews from our friends especially about pizza. Thus some negative remarks on the Restaurantactie website did not scare us away.
Interior and Atmosphere. We no longer judge restaurants by the interior. Yes we used to have this habit before. Of course beautiful atmosphere give additional pleasant experience, but in the end of the days as long as place is clean and more or less simply furnished it fine. What's most important is food and service. The interior is pretty simple. It wasn't too noisy and in my opinion it was pretty clean.
Food. We enjoyed our starters (Italian bitterballen and prosciuotto with melon). As main dish we tooks what we were craving for a long time - pizzas. Yes, they have really nice pizzas. Unfortunately I do not remember, which ones we had. But one was with Spianata Romana and Mozzarella and another one with anchovy and ham. The cheesecake with fresh berries with really tasty and I would prefer a clasical tiramisu to the lemon one, that they had. However it was pretty refreshing.
Service. Service really friendly and we never felt abandoned. There was always somebody passing by, asking if we like the dishes and offering drinks. At the time when we came I saw a lot of pizza orders. Having in mind that only one guy was making pizza, waiting time was reasonable.
Overall I would recommend this place and I am definitely coming back.

food fantastic but the portions are really small. I mean, you need to ask 3 curses to have the stomach middle full. Pizzas good but 10 euros for small pizza *margherita is too much. I would suggest to add tapas or well be more generous with the quantity.
desert * just don't try it....
