I have eaten here twice and consider it over-priced and average. I was with a large group and they seemed very ill-equipped to handle us. Some tables had finished eating before others had even placed their orders. My pizza was fine, but nothing special. Other diners had the same kind of comments. With so many choices in Riga, I will...

This italian restaurant is located in the old city of Riga, just one block from tourist streets. It is located in the nice square. When we entered to the restaurant, we were welcomed by a waiter and seated. We ordered some pizzas and salads. Pizzas arrived in different time with 5 minute intervals. Pizza itself was good, but there could... More

Food was tasteless and I found two hair in my food. Cook made my food again and I got free dessert because of those hairs, but still that is disgusting.

It was a very cold day and we were looking forward to some Pasta/ Pizza for lunch. We entered the empty restaurant only to wait for 10 minutes for even a waiter to appear from the back of the restaurant, By that time we had seated ourselves and thought that there's no way Pizza/ Pasta can be messed up but...

Went there for pasta and carpaccio. Can not complain. Also a very nice place with a good Italian ambiance.

Once in a while I ordered pizza to go at this restaurant, and it has been OK. Today I decided to eat lunch, and was totally disappointed. I would recommend the chef take a trip to Italy to refresh his knowledge of Italian food. Carpaccio di manzo was overpriced for the quality, ruccola without taste, and barely a hint of... More

I always order Diavola or Super Diavola in Pomodoro during my visit in Riga. This time Diavola's were not so good as used to be - only few slices of saliami; super Diavola wasn't spicy enough (I think some red chilli pepper would solve it). Place is nice and quite, service is good as well. I wish to get slightly... More

Thanks for a nice evening! We came with 3 kids, had excellent service and good pizzas that came very fast. An extra thank you for the extra ice-cubes for our 5-years old.

This was an eatery of choice a few years back, disappointed that things have changed. Place wasn't busy but we had to wait a long time for food, although admittedly we were a large group. Pizzas looked like they hardly had any topping on them. Pasta portions were tiny for the price. Wine was decent. Never again.

My husband thought his veal was great. I thought the pizza fine, but sitting outside in perfect weather on this side street amidst lovely buildings without the boisterous crowds made for a romantic, relaxed evening. Very good service.
