Pizzas were good.

There were about 30-40 people at Trattorias- including a kiddies birthday. Saw only one waitress - therefore service was a bit tight.The owner/manager was also helping out.

We've been here a couple of times during our visit of SFB. Stefan is a great host, the service staff is attentive but not annoying. The food is a good variety of italian cuisine, the pizzas and pastas are very tasty and cooked to the point. But the special treat is the peri peri chicken liver -we loved it! The... More

The restaurant was close to our lodgings and convenient to walk to. Our dinner was pleasant and tasty but not outstanding.

We came in from the beach (so were very casually dressed). The restaurant was welcoming and you can watch the golfers chase their balls around while you eat. The food, (pizza and pasta) was very good. Children are welcome, (even slightly rowdy ones like mine.)

Situated in shopping centre, overlooking the golfcourse, good place for pizza or pasta. Friendly staff and good food at very resonable price.

the vegetarian pizza I had was dry and overdone, with a horrible, stale base. Even my 17 year old son, who eats anything, wasn't impressed at all. For an "Italian" restaurant, we were very disappointed.

Fairly late in a busy tourist town, we were treated to excellent, friendly and professional service and the best pizza we've ever had!

I think we came on training day because our waiter was an idiot. The food was good, tasty and served in a timely fashion. However the waiter stared at us the entire meal and kept bothering us to pick up the smallest things. If the owner wants to train his staff, he should start back of house with the basics,... More
