“Good pizza, but not so good pasta!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Went there many times and yes the pizza is good. Not the best in the world like you read in other reviews! It's just good like it should be.
The pastas however are small portions and not so tasty.
They have a small section of wines. By the way, always choose the Georgian wines in Odessa, it's good quality and much cheaper than the overpriced French wines.
Off course the waitresses speak only Russian and little English.
It's aways busy and they are located on 2 places (walikng distance from each other).
Conclusion: it's a good pizzeria but not an Italian restaurant! It takes more than good pizza's to be a good Italian restaurant.

“Real italian pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This is the best pizza place in Odessa, in my opinion. Serves reasonably fast even when the place is full. However, the customer service could be a little bit better. Afterwords I realized that I should of speak in english to them (i was speaking Russian since Im fluent in it) i guess tourist get extra nice treatment :). Otherwise the food is very good and the atmosphere is very chill.

“Аuthentic pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

One of the best places in town where you can eat pizza and spaghetti. Nice atmosphere and friendly Italian waiters hinterland. Constantly there is an offer of dishes made ​​from seasonal fruits and vegetables. And that is very important - the pizza cooked on a wood stove! Bon Appetit!

“Very cozy atmosphere, friendly,..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

The interior of this restaurant was made with love. It has even got a faint taste of a museum, with some photos of the 50ies. A lot of what they serve is visible, and the timeless red slicing machine has got the position like a sculpture. Very friendly staff, and there is English version of the menu. The price for the rather little portions served is a bit too high (Odessa, but nonetheless: Ukraine). It`s prepared with love (too).
