5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Really fun our guide Danny was very knowledgeable about the pizza and the city, too! The receptionist at Pizano's was really rude to us.. it was snowing that morning and we arrived approximately 10 minutes before the scheduled time of arrival. She told us we had to wait outside, in the wind and snow, until the proper time was reached. We didn't ask to be seated, and were just going to wait inside the entry way but she wouldn't allow us to. Then she never invited us back inside when our time was up. Bad form Pizano's!
