Pizza worth trying

If you are pizza fun you should definitely visit this place. Moreover, they have lunch offer. Great pizza only for 4.5 euro. It has also a cool patio to eat outside.

Food ok, but service is very dependent on who you get. Pizza is best in Tartu but ok compared to europe. We have visited this place many times.

We loved both the main course (pizza especially) and the desserts, we hope to visit it again soon. The atmosphere in the restaurant is relaxed and homely, and the menu very diverse!

Went for lunch and had a very pleasant meal. Service was good and presentation of the food very nice. Dishes arrived a little apart so timing was not a strong point but as it was a leisurely lunch it really was not a problem. Limited wine selection but good quality. Certainly worth a return visit.

You can guess what is the place which stole our hearts. We went here every night and on the first night theTagliata con rucola was absolutely perfect. My friend has less experience from Italian restaurants and she absolutely adored the bruschetta we shared. It was a very promissing start. I let her taste my food and immediately she told me...

Since there was a festival in town and I was a solo diner, I wasn't sure I could get seated at this popular restaurant. They did, however, allow me to sit at a table for 4 on the terrace. I went mid afternoon and they were kind enough to accommodate me. As I looked at what others had, it was... More

Its confusing why there are so many good reviews. The service is below zero. The waitress basically ignored us and was sort of impolite even. Our food arrived at least ten minutes apart and we were kept waiting when we wanted to re-order drinks. All the waitresses looked angry, like we were intruders in the restaurant. It made us feel...

This restaurant has a small place outside, which is not very beautiful but better than the cellar in the summer. Service was fast, friendly and attentive. Nothing bad here. I ordered a pizza and some pasta, with the pasta coming first. After some waiting, the waitress asked me if the pizza could come first, as the pasta would need some... More

Booked ahead by phone for early supper. The service was welcoming and efficient. The menu was incredibly broad and very good despite the risks of such a range. Would definitely go back.
