“Great pastas, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled across this pizzeria whilst looking for something other than pinxtos. Very pleasant & helpful waiter, good English. All 4 of us ordered a pasta & they were excellent. Tasty & plentiful, reasonably priced. Pizzas looked good so we'll go back for them.

“Great little restaurant in the Old Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

If you don't fancy Pintxos, then this is worth a visit. We went there with our two hungry teenage boys who did not like Pintxos. They loved this place and insisted that we returned again on another night. The pizzas (about 7 - 9 euros) and minute steaks (8 euros) are good. The service is attentive. It is a small informal place, with reasonably priced wine. Perfectly fine for a family meal. It is not fine dining but teenagers and children will be very happy.

“Great Salads”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Our kids aren't loving the pintxos, so we headed here for pizza and pasta a couple of times during our visit. They are speedy and the staff is decent. The salads are really great. Pizza and pasta were just what the kids had in mind. I would definitely take my kids back. But, if I weren't travelling with my kids, this wouldn't be a place to frequent since there are so many excellent restaurants in this area.

If you are missing home, go here, for sure. Decent prices and you can also take pizzas to go.

“Good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Ideal for friends of thin and crispy pizza. Good cheeses good ingredients. Service ok. Ugly interior. Prices maybe a bit too high but ok for old town

“A good tapas alternative at a very reasonable price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

We chose this restaurant because we were looking for somewhere we could sit, and get a freshly cooked meal, that wasn't tapas. This area can get a bit much with so many tapas bars.

We arrived at about 9pm as the place was about 3/4 full. The staff were polite. We ordered a pizza and a pasta to share.

Our food was delicious, and both servings were big. We are not small eaters, but we're unable to finish our meals. By the time we'd eaten, all tables were filled and a number of people were waiting. however we never felt like we were being hurried to leave.

Overall, we thought this place was a great alternative to the crazy tapas bars, and we would definitely return. Don't be fooled by the low rating on trip advisor.
