My husband and I visited this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel receptionist and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the waiter who served us was lovely, really helpful and funny. My only quibble was the service. It started so well, but went downhill fast. It took forever for our pizzas to arrive, after a super... More

The restaurant has a beautiful interior design, relaxing lights. The menu is diverse with all types of flavors from beef, chicken to fish and also vegetarian. The pizza's are a must have, brick oven pizza in various toppings. Definitely would come here again.

the place was in a very good position for us to have dinner, so we decided to go even not very keen of trying Italian restaurants abroad. This place does not go against the general rule. Not mentioning the name chosen, this place is pretentious without giving a real atmosphere, not an Italian one for sure, at least. Service was... More

Since we were staying at the Sheraton Pelikan hotel, we dropped by for an evening meal. The restaurant was not too crowded and the atmosphere looked really nice and inviting. However the service we received was not very welcoming! The young man who served us seemed to be in a rush to get his job done and serve other tables.... More

Mostly a pizza place. The restaurant is directly in front of the Sheraton Pelikan. We tried the beef fillet. it was cooked to the right temperature perfectly. However, it seemed like it was cooked without salt and pepper. They did provide three kinds of salt to put on the steak at the table, but it still needs to be cooked... More

Very busy restaurant serving wood fired pizzas. Seating outside on a balmy evening was not pleasant due to many other clients smoking. Food is good. Prices ok. Amazing decor.

Very nice location with a large beautifully appointed dining room. Good atmosphere. Unfortunately it went downhill from there. I had a Minestrone followed by a pizza. I have eaten both previously in Naples, Rome, Sicily, NYC, and elsewhere. I love Italian food. This was not good pizza or minestrone. The pizza was large and looked good but I have eaten... More

Wow - the pizzas were huge and full of toppings. I had a salami and feta Pizza Simon and it was fantastic. The house wine was very good too, I think the pizza and wine came to just over 20 euros. The atmosphere was super, with candles and tasteful decor. A must if your in the neighbourhood.
