“Avoid this - if you can”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

This pizzeria (which actually has no pizza during the off-season!) is a hotel-restaurant and one of few open restaurants in November. Still I suggest you try to search for something else, this is really only for emergency, only if you're too hungry to search for better alternatives (there are hardly any worse alternatives, _everything_ eatable is likely to be better than this, for example hunting a rabbit in the nearby fields and eating it raw). Prepare for a way to expensive meal that's not worth the money, the meat is of really poor quaility and the taste is *uargh*.
I don't even want to talk about the "service" and the cleanliness, it fits into the overall picture.
Avoid this if you can.

Dear Sir,
thank you very much for your review. It is important to know if someone is able to hunt a rabbit, it is better to do this before coming in in our restaurant.
Yes! Our restaurant in off season doesn't serve pizza but we still decide to welcome any one need food during November to March because we know (as you wrote) 'only few restaurant are open'. It is uncomfortable go around and don't find any place where you can eat. All over the world in off season: actractions, museum, some type of shops, offer short opening hours. So, why do complain for 'No pizza in off season'? It is common. If your idea is correct, any one can say: No Pizza in off season? No pizza for Lunch? Why you stop serving food in the afternoon? Our restaurant is not Pizza Hut. We respect the Pizza Hut style, but we offer different service.
So thank you very much for your slogan which we propose to our guests in off season "If you are not able to hunting a rabbit, you are welcome".
Any way your slang " hunting a rabbit in the nearby fields" give us a smile.

“trouely recommendable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2010

Very nice restaurant in a neat winter garden. Spotless and friendly service, reasonable prices, topped by excellent food. The chief shows an eager to serve dishes you won't find anywhere else. We highely recommend: Quadrelli al magro.

The connected Hotel D'Orange D'Alcantara is a neat place as well. Large and well kept rooms. After a hot day on the road, you will appreciate the small swimming pool on the roof - by the way with an excellent view.
