“This is just sad...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Since this was the number 2 ranked TripAdvisor restaurant in Pedasi (#1 was closed) we thought we pay a visit. What a disappointment... A limited menu, which is not an issue of course. I had chorizo which were just 3 supermarket sausages, cut in half and fried. The focaccia side dish turned out to be a full pizza, topped with the same disgusting sausages and dry too... My partner had the day special pasta which turned out to be supermarket penne pasta with a sauce so sad a 6 year old could prepare it. The wine (only 1 option) was a low quality Italian red served cold but no good. $46 of sadness.

“a piece of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

A fantastic place surrounded by nature. The only place with the real italian pizza in pedasi, cooked with wood stove. But not only pizza, a different type of pasta, fresh and different every day.
the atmosphere is really nice, the owners Giorgia and Alessio will make you feel at home!

“yuk!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We make better pizza at home. Very sparse toppings on a very small, overpriced, extremely thin cracker-like crust. Pasta was very dry and tasteless. This restaurant is over-rated. All the pastas sounded exactly alike, maybe with just a small variation or two. Meat dishes - what meat dishes? Seafood - what seafood? Never will go there again.

whats happen!!??!! non avrete trovato pesce perchè a seconda della stagione c'è piu o meno disponibilita..Siamo l'unica pizzeria della regione a usare farina 00 e in maggioranza prodotti italiani quindi vi invitiamo a riprovare la nostra cucina(sarete capitati nella nostra peggiore giornata!!) Da dicembre scorso siamo gli unici rivenditori per la regione di Los Santos di Flor de Quesos azienda che produce formaggi freschi italiani nella regione de El VAlle de Anton..Siete nuovamente invitati a provare i nostri prodotti.Ci scusiamo per il disagio............

“Very nice evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Quite impressive ranking for this lost small restaurant in the outskirt of Pedasi, so we decided to try it out! Although we wouldn't be as ecstatic as other reviewers it is true that the food was good (a very well cooked fish and some good but not exceptional pasta) and the service very friendly (but a bit stressed given the "crowd" that evening). It's certainly one of the best options in Pedasi but don't expect to go there without a car and it might be useful to localize the place during the day to have a chance to find it at night, as posting is very discrete! One last advice? Have your repellent ready.
