“Pizza OK, dreadful service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Ate here on a Friday night as everywhere else in this picturesque location was very busy and we saw they had a free table outside.

The place was very busy and had quite a few staff milling around, but the service was truly dreadful.

The owner / manager was only interested in welcoming his friends / regulars and the "tourists" were effectively ignored by the waiting staff.

We both had pizzas which were OK, but nothing special.

As there are so many other restaurants nearby, try somewhere else.

“A real dive”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Waiter was so rude- he took our order and could not produce a bottle of water in over 45 minutes. So we told him forget it- we had already had our coffee and were ready to leave and asked him to bring us the check. He brought us the check and the bottle of water, insisting that since we "ordered" it- we had to pay for it. Argument ensued. Incredibly insolent and tacky. Avoid!

“If you like microwaved food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I visited in October 2012 during a weekday for dinner. Ordered a lasagne, it came in an oval dish but the lasagna looked like it came out of a microwave box and sure enough, when i cut it in half the middle was still frozen. I asked the waitress for a warm lasagna instead, it came back 2 minutes later from the microwave. On top of that, it was also extremely salty. I won't be returning here, that's for sure.

“Really ordinary, not worth any extra effort to get there..like airplane food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

Near the center of the old city on the center of a beautiful square with many other outdoor cafes around. Very mediocre, very. Pizza tastes like is was microwaved with frozen crust. Salad dressing has that awful sweetened form a bottle taste. Go else where, not worth it. Small kids might
Like it. Fast and out doors...adults or anyone who likes good food and good service, go elsewhere.
