We must have visited on their off day since our experience was nowhere near the positive ones that I've heard. Our first issue was that flagging down staff took ages, and the waitress that finally did turn up was difficult to communicate with in english....Ok, fine, no problem, everyone can be understaffed. That also explains having to remind her of forgotten drink orders. The main negative experience was our food. Describing it as mediocre would be an understatement. I've been to places whose pizza is lidl dough topped up with canned sausages and cooked in a basic oven, and it still turned out better than the one I had here! The dough tasted burned in places, but I cannot say that the pizza was burnt since other areas of it tasted chewy and weird. My pizza was dripping in tomato sauce but other ingredients were almost non visible. Everyone on my table commented that our pizzas and pasta were disappointing. Not what you'd expect from a place like this that's known to be decent.More
