“Great italian flavor in Switzerland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Sometimes is really hard to fine great food in Vevey, full of flavor and great value for your money....and this place is all that!
Make sure you make a reservation, cause the place is always packed and dont expect a 5 star glamorous restaurant, but i guess thats part of the charm!
Good service and absolutely delicious dinner with a great price (which is hard to find in Switzerland). 100% recommended

“Little heaven for Pizza lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Best Pizza this side of Alps.

Come here for authentic Italian dining experience.
Come with family and friends and as in Italian culture spend time together as the service and the staff are same as it would be in Italy.

Very small place so make sure you reserve your place well in advance.

Ask them for seating in Verandah, it looked like a nice place to sit and eat.

“Lots of steps!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

The restaurant is small and crowded (you may be sitting very close to the next table, but the probably won't be speaking the same language as you. The service and the pizzas were good, and I was even offered a box to take the my uneaten half home. Half the other customers seemed to be speaking Italian, which is a good sign

There is one big caveat though. The only door into the restaurant is halfway down a flight of steep steps, with only a rope handrail. It is therefore inaccessible to wheelchairs, pushchairs etc.

“Good pizzas but cramped interiors”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Great place to have thin crust flavorsome pizzas. Been there many times - consistent fare.
Reasonable value for money for Switzerland.
Owner seems grumpy but warms up soon. Ask for Valentina if you need help in English.
Accepts only cash. Reservations are necessary.

“Never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Imagine: you invite your 10 best friends to the supposed "best pizza place" in Vevey

The result:
You call the restaurant 3 days earlier to book the seats- nothing abnormal so far.
When we arrived at the place with your friends you're welcomed like dogs.

45 min awaiting just to get a menu and to get some drinks. Then you're hurried to choose something and you can't make you own choice as you are a group and there is some "restriction".....

Then you get your meal, it is good but not that fantastic and at 11.00pm you need to leave because they are closing.

We like Italian food and spirit but not in this place

So, never again in this restaurant
