We came here for lunch, ordered spinach calzone and mushroom pizza. Both came barely warm. The calzone was soggy and tasteless. The pizza would have been ok, had it been hot... The portions are large, but the prices are pretty high, especially if you consider the quality of the food

This place was great!! I got a pizza and was able to pick two different types (half and half) even though it was just a medium size. I got eggplant and mushroom. SO DELICIOUS!!

Surely one of the best places to eat in mar del plata. The owner will make you feel at home and the pizza is inarguably great. Highly recommended.

I had a very nice lunch at this little restaurant just up from the sea front. Very tasty food and good value. Staff were very friendly, and the service good. The only criticism that I would make was that they couldnt (or wouldnt) serve coffee after the meal. I couldn't understand why not.

In 1992 I started to travel to Mar del Plata with my girlfriend (now my wife) and we discovered this place by accident. Since then, we haven´t gone to another pizza restaurant. During 8 years we also lived in Mar del Plata and went every week-end..yes every weekend. We love to eat pizza...so have gone to thousands of places, and... More
