Al Castello feels like a franchise but the delicious pizza (with prosciutto and extra mozzarella) was cooked in an old school wood heated oven and the beer was special. Sometimes that is exactly what you need. Staff speaks a some english too ;)

Although the main entry suggests a hidden restaurant, inside it is very spacious. We arrived at peak time, but we received our order pretty fast. The pizza had an amazing dough, crunchy yet puffy and thin.
