During our visit to Pula this February we looked for a place to have dinner and went for Pizza to Da Giancarlo. Although they advertize as a Restaurant and Pizzeria, they do not give you the Pizza Menu unless you ask for it. We had dinner there before and it was good (not excellent) with a caotic service, the place... More

Okay, so we'd all been out on a fun mini-bus tour organised by the family who owned our hotel. Papa was driving, with his son Luca doing a vague bit of translating. We'd been to a few beaches, helped to empty one little seaside bar that was closing that day for the season (sacrifices, sacrifices), and had a good look... More

A group of us ate here. The food was very good but the waiters were very unhelpful eg we asked for the bill to be split they said ok but it came as one bill. We ordered wine and it didn't come, we had to ask for it again. They were not forthcoming with menus. I must admit when the... More

We ate here 3 nights running, and were quite happy. However we got a bit fed up with the knowall head waiter. He refused to give us mayonnaise with cold lobster, 'we do not do that here'. Food was pretty good, though prawns etc are pre cooked. Spaghetti bottarga very good. Menu is very long which is always a worry.... More

As I now see a couple of others have commented, whilst the food here is reasonably good and the place far more substantial inside that it seems from outside (and a proper full trattoria), the head waiter really does seem to have atitude! We decided on the first occasion to add a starter, three minutes after we had placed our... More

Walked past the restaurant for most of our holiday thinking it didn't look up to much, what a mistake. Finally took the plunge and then spent 2 nights in here. The menu is fish biased but there is a good selection of meat dishes and pizzas that won't fit on a plate. The service was excellent which cannot be said... More

Having arrived on a Sunday and found several places closed in the evening we were directed here by a friendly hotelier. The room is huge almost like a canteen and looks a bit dated but the service was friendly and our efforts at Italian were appreciated. I had a generous starter of prosciutto e melone and then good ravioli, the... More

We had a good experience da Giancarlo: staff was very friendly, pizza was served in 5 minutes in respect that the restaurant was full and fish dishes were also prepared very fast, the bill was provided timely. As for the food quality, it was excellent: both pizza and fish (I ordered assorted fish antipasties, which were very very tasty and... More

Having been recommended this restaurant we were very disappointment. In fact, we couldn't wait to finish our food and leave. The staff were incredibly rude, almost hostile, from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. This is the first and only time we experienced this in the 9 days we were in Sardinia. The food was ok... More
