“Good places turning poor - it is all about people”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

After spending almost a year outside of Slovakia I was hoping to start returning to my favorite places in town, Paparazzi was very high on the list. The food used to be OK but the drinks were best in town. The food is still fine and the drinks - in case you don't fall asleep or give up waiting are still nice, but the time it takes to deliver them is incredible. What is worse that later in the evenings the manager is not in and it is almost impossible to catch a waiter.At least this was mine Monday's experience. My company wanted to leave and I was staying more due to my loyalty to the place then for the drinks.
Looks like I will need to find a new place for drinks. It is a pity, but you do not want to wait 40 minutes for first drink, especially not it case that there are only few another people in the bar. Nor you want to chase waiters to revisit your table at least from time to time. They were literally hiding somewhere.

“Best Italian in Bratislava”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Excellent atmosphere, location, extensive menu with choices of fresh pasta, meats and fishes. Wonderful prosciuttos, mozzarella di buffala and other italian standards of the highest quality. The service is impecable, good seating and proper white napkin (a rare commodity in Bratislava). Overall an always sure bet when it comes to a very good meal alone, with family or friends.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

The food that we had was good & the presentation was very nice. The place was not very busy, but our food took a very long time to get to us. Meanwhile, we sipped on a whole lot of wine & went through quite a few bread baskets. I wish our food would of come a lot sooner. The staff & the place was very nice.

“Average food - small portions and over priced wine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We had dinner at Paparazzi the second night we stayed in Bratislava. Wine was relatively expensive and the food was average.  We had one pasta dish, one meat dish and one seafood dish. The pasta was meant to be served with prawns and was (all two of them).  The meat was over cooked. The lighting was dim but the service itself was quite good. €83 for two adults and a child with a bottle of wine. There are better options.
