Delicious pizza

We had great wine, great service, and great pizza here. No complaints. The price was right and it is right in the heart of the city.

First of all you have to stand in a big line, even if you have a reservation. We were there exactly at our time of reservation, and after waiting some time in the line, we had to stand and wait yet another 10-15minutes for a table that WAS READY. We had a full view over the resturant and nobody did... More

From the street it could be overlooked as just another sports/burger bar, but having eaten here on many occasions, it does serve very good food. I especially like the famous meat platter, it's very Italian, selection of breads, cheeses, meats accompanied with fresh fig, honeycomb, olives and general antipasti... It's a meal in itself , but sold as a starter...... More

After reading a few bad reviews we decided to try the place anyway. We were extremely happy! The pizza was delicious and our waitress was so helpful and friendly. My partner works on Gothenburg and I was just visiting but in my 5 days there I could see that service in most places was definitely below average but this was... More

This is too much for me. Sorry it is going to be grumpy but I'm fed up with farelli's. I just move to Göt so I'm new in town but I had the chance to go to farelli's 3 times already in this first couple of months, always for the Sunday brunch. First of all, waiting time is exaggerated and... More

As with most of our experience of Gothenburg, the service here was excellent. Attentive and helpful waiting staff with a perfect commend of English. The food was very good, too. It's not cheap - but this is Sweden! You don't visit Sweden to bag a bargain. In the end, you get what you pay for - and here, like most... More

A good meal in a lively restaurant during the first half of Germany's victory, then we made room for late dinners. Good basic food and good service. Right next door to Hard Rock and lower prices for what appeared to be better food.

Went there with the family, we had a good time. After waiting some 15 minutes we got a perfect table from the maitre d' on the summer verandah with great view over the "Avenyn" and all the people strolling the evening street. The waitress was exceptionally professional and effective, the burgers and pasta were uncomplicated and to our satisfaction and... More
