Huge portions!

Recently visited for lunch, we'd walked past several times while in Lignano and the restaurant was always busy. My partner had a pizza which arrived far quicker than my meal. I ordered fried squid, a salad and some chips. The chips and salad arrived first, so I started nibbling on these; I wish the... read more

The food is not bad, the place is quite big and clean. The staff can not smile, walking in bored look on their face, as if it had had enough of their work.

This is a very large restaurant serving lots of people (and people were also waiting in line when we left the restaurant). The food is ok but it is nothing special. It was not quite clear to us what the reason for the popularity of this place is (you can find better places in Lignano).

Yes you have to wait in the queue for a table at peak times, a sure sign of a good place. But the food and wine is good, comes quickly and the service is excellent. Best pizza in Lignano and the staff are very helpful in catering for different (difficult) diets etc.

nice and quality food for good price. the restaurant is one of the largest in Lignano Sabbiadoro, I think. but during the dinner you have to wait anyhow for 10-20-30 minutes to have a table.
