They've lived here for over 20yrs, learned the language. Ok, about the food. I ordered pizza seeing about they hype. It's that good. But make sure you get the parm cheese on... More

1. Setup is beautiful 2. it is run by an Italian family is what I heard 3. Very close to Palolem beach 4. We ordered Veg Pizzas and Non Veg 5. Though the pizza had good amount of vegetable topping, the taste was not very impressive 6. Even upon our request to make the pizza spicy, because that is how... More

We were a table of 5 and they were not able to serve us all in a time. One of us had to wait so long that all others had finished their meal when he was eating. Pizzas are ok but very dry (still when considering you are in India). Wine is overpricey. Waiters don't understand much and management is... More

"What has happened" i last visited this place 18 months ago. The food was very good and services very friendly. We all went there last night and the services was awful, lazy rude staff. The food was ok but nothing to write home about. We ordered a mixed starter then a mixed salad, pizza and a angry pasta. We all... More

During our half day outing to Palolem we had our lunch here (this place had been recommended to us)- and we were not disappointed in the least! This place is restaurant is unlike any other in Goa. We were greeted by soft, soothing chanting playing and a picture of a spiritual master. We had been told that an Italian lady,... More

By far one of the best pizza I ever had in long time. It was a thin crust and well topped up. I could survive on this for many days. The lady and the daughter who owned the place were humble and very customer oriented. The staff too was very helpful and prompt. I'm honored to have eaten at this... More

We ate here recently and made the mistake of ordering the seafood pizza. When it finally arrived after 45 minutes it had a couple of tiny prawns on top and and few clam shells with some miniscule bits of flesh. Service was friendly and apologetic and the atmosphere welcoming but the food was dead disappointing - can't recommend.

The standard of a good pizza aside from a good crust is often determined by the quantity and quality of the topping. We ate here recently and made the mistake of ordering the seafood pizza - which consisted of a couple of tiny prawns mixed in with clam shells containing miniscule amounts of flesh. Service was friendly and the atmosphere... More

A 100% authentic Italian Food joint at the Palolem Beach, in South Goa. Not only the Italian Food is superb, but the ambiance of the place is itself enticing and sure to want you to come back another time.. Personal Service by the owners is a additional plus point to the entire experience. Though very near the beach the ambiance... More
