Not the best

We chose Magic Italy because friends of ours had read it was the 'best pizza in Goa' and was keen to try it. The atmosphere was pleasant but service very slow - there appeared to be only one poor guy doing all the work! The pizza was nice enough but overpriced. I'll stick to Indian next time.

We visited this restaurant in February and have to say were disgusted with the behaviour of some of the staff there. We were sat at a table by the bar and witnessed a barman and also a waiter helping them selves to alcoholic drinks from behind the bar and downing them quickly then laughing with a group of what I...

We visited here one night for a bit of a change from the many, generally very good, Indian / Goan restaurants in Palolem. It does pretty much what you would expect of an Italian restaurant - pizzas and pasta, but from this visit the food seems pretty decent. The menu has a good choice of pizzas and pastas, also some...

This is an amazing place for authentic Italian. Please make sure you don't expect India-taste Pizzas or such food. But if you are looking for authentic Italian, this is the THE place.

The pizza was good, and arrived quickly however I had to wait a considerable amount of time for my pasta - by which time my partner had nearly finished! I went... More

Extensive selection of pizzas, which we found to be very tasty. It seems that they either used too little cheese, or slightly overcooked it, because the cheese were ''prickly.'' The serice wasn't all that, and the wine selection poor. I won't blame them for a small selection of international wine, since it's not really common in Asia, however, when they... More
