Though Izi Pizza is an Italian restaurant, there is a lot that sets it apart from others of its kind. To start, the menu is separated into four color categories: red, white, blue, and green. Red refers to four homemade tomato based sauces; white is the sauces of that color like alfredo, carbonara, and formaggi; blue sauces are sauces that mix offerings from the sea such as mussels and calimari; and finally, green sauces are based in oils and herbs like pesto, aglio, and olio.

Once you get beyond the sauces, you will find that there are 12 fresh pastas, homemade lasagna that is known around the island, and several seafood and meat options as well. You can also create a pasta of your own by choosing a sauce, pasta, and protein, and go from there.
