Delicious pizza and salads! Fire oven and chef all open for observing. Good wine selection and reasonable prices. Easy to walk to from downtown and right near lots of bars for drinks later.

I had heard a lot about this place so we went there with my Girlfriend. We had a Diavolo Pizza and Ravioli. The food tastes very good and the service was nice. Allthough overall i can recommend this place, the Ambiente is really lacking. It seems that it stayed some decades in the past and could be freshed up.

Came here for breakfast and ordered a vegetable omelette, which was good. Nothing more and nothing less.

Very unfriendly staff, not hospital at all to avoid, if you want to enjoy your food I see I am not the only one with this experience...

Mixed reviews on tripadvisor about this one. Go if you are near by and want a simple no frills meal it will fit the bill. I would go there again. I didn't find it overly priced either our total bill for 2 salads, 2 pizza, beer and maybe a soda was $66 euro. For a family of four, not bad.... More

A friend recommended this restaurant as it was newly renovated however I didn't get their appeal. The restaurant has two patios, unfortunately we didn't see the second (nicer) one until after we finished. The menu is rather limited i.e. 3 salads 4 pastas 10 pizzas, 2-3 seafood dishes. The service was prompt, friendly but clearly rushed (even though most tables... More

We had an awful experience here - unwelcoming, arrogant staff and mediocre food. Pizza Margherita was overcooked and had two basil leaves stuck on it. Of all the places we ate over 8 days in Europe, this was bottom of the list.

Small and cozy authentic Italian pizza restaurant, just a 5 min walk from Marienplatz. A wide range of typical Italian pizzas, baked in a stone oven. Very good food, nice atmosphere and helpfull staff. Due to its small size and popularity it may be wise to reserve a table in advance. Well worth a visit.

After a tiring day we decided wanted a simple no frills meal. The Riva on Tal had been recommended by someone working in Munich so we thought we'd try it. We were in Munich in December so it was dark at 7pm when we went to find the restaurant. We followed our instructions and came upon Tal, which was almost... More
