We went to have pizza in Pizza Pazza Petralva two weeks ago. As we got it recommended a couple of times we gave it a go. The place looks quite beautiful and the village is worth a visit. We had booked a table, so we had no problems finding a table although we were not guided to our table but had to find it ourselves because none of the staff took notice of us. The staff in general is quite unfriendly despite the owner. He really should get rid of his waitresses who are not taking care at all after their guests. It was alomst a hunt to get the waitress round to order a bottle of water and two pizzas.
Well the pizza... having lived in Italy for a while, the pizza is not bad. But in fact it has nothing to do with a real italian pizza! We would have loved to order just a Magherita pizza but that does not exist in the menue. Instead I got a pizza with some stinky farmers cheese which tasted quite strange as there were grated carrots for topping. The toppings anyway come quite weird, it seems tha you get more or less of what you have orderes. When we wanted to pay it ended in a long wait on the bar as the waiters cannot bill you, just their boss. It took ages, about 20 minutes waiting to pay! And we were not treated with a "sorry" but staff was well crumpy with us.
Actually we know better places in the Algarve for pizza. So I don t care about Princes Harrys visit back in 2008! I just want to have real tasty pizza and a nice welcoming staff. This might be good for anyone who likes carrot pizza and bananas on pizza...
