“Dip into Pizza here”

Lamericano pizzeria
Ranked #64 of 191 Restaurants in Altamura
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The owner lived in the USA for over 20 years and this is reflected in the style, modern, trendy, minimalistic furnature rather than the traditional Italian style. The walls decorated with large portaraits of the families life in america. I half expected Rocky to walk in any minute. Excellent service and great pizzas, big too. Plenty of other dishes too, such as dips and pasta. Made very welcome, especially when the boss realised I was English - no language problems here, although I did use my (quite poor) Italian. Popular with all ages. Very enjoyable night.

Despite not knowing more then a handful of Italian words, we decided on "Lamericano" thanks to all the 5* Italian reviews below (they should know a good pizza place, right?).

Located in a quiet residential street in Altamura, at first we thought it might be closed as the front windows were covered in posters. Once inside we found a bright, modern, clean and vibrant restaurant.

Once the staff realised we weren't Italians they were quick to offer help with any questions we might have with the Italian-language menu (the owners' young daughter was eager to help with any trickier translations).

The pizza section is huge - dozens of combinations from traditional ingredient pairings to more adventurous - so be careful not to be overwhelmed.

The restaurant filled up quickly after we arrived. It appeared many of the parties knew each other and the staff, and even though we were the only non-locals we were made to feel at home.

The pizzas were fresh, crispy and extremely tasty (and very reasonably priced) and the tomato/mozzarella side salad was delicious (also huge!). Don't worry if you can't finish it all - they're happy for you to takeaway.

We also sampled some little fried pasta "dippers" (moreish) and mini ice cream rolls (kiwis: they tasted just like baby TipTop Rocky Roads!).

If you're in Altamura and the surrounding areas make sure to stop by.
