Really loved the gelato from the original location so quite looked forward to the new location, which also serves Napoletana style pizza.

We stayed away in the beginning due to the long line ups, but finally got a chance to go. We ended up at a very non-busy time, maybe only 2 or 3 other tables there.

Service, quite slow. I was really surprised by how long. The pizza should be very quick and especially given the lack of other customers there. They weren't exactly fast to get or order either, the waitress took the order, went away, then came back because she got confused or mixed up about what we ordered.
After the meal, we also ordered some dessert and a gelato on a cone. Not only did it also take a long time, they got the gelato order wrong. Somebody came back to "fix" the order, but the "fix" also took a long time. In a near empty restaurant!!! All told, we spent much more than an hour there for 2 pizzas and an ice cream. In an empty restaurant. There's no way they generate enough turnover to keep the place running.

To add insult, the gelato here (which we have since tried a few times) is not as good as the other location, usually too sweet. The dessert billed as "tiramisu", was nothing like that. It was a biscuit with 3 very, very tiny balls (~ 2cm diameter) of gelato. And it was really expensive.

The pizza was mediocre. You can get just as good from Famoso or any other number of joints around town. Absolutely nothing special, except maybe by being 10-20% more expensive than the competition! Our evaluation of the pizza correlates well with other friends and acquaintances who also tried at other times. "Meh, it was ok" was the general response.

Not recommended. You can get way better Neapolitan style pizza in any number of places around town. For gelato, the original location is better. For the same stuff, walk up a few blocks and get it for less cost and less lineup. For dessert or pizza, head around the corner to Sciue.
