8. Da Michele - Eat Pray Love resturant

This was by far is the best pizza I have ever eaten in Italy. I would advise you to do to this restaurant as soon as it opens (10am) or at lunch time. The reason for this is in the evening there are often queues of people (mainly tourists) waiting to get a seated. You can be expected to wait around 1-2 hours in the evening where as in the day time it should be emptyish.
