We have chosen this restaurant based on the reviews and photos here on Tripadvisor and our feelings were somewhat mixed. When it comes to food, it was delicious. Great and huge pizza for a fair price so definitely a good option regarding the food. However,...the service could be better. Firstly, the restaurant was not too busy and it took a while to get our food. Secondly, the food was not served at the same time so it was awkward when one person had to wait for others to get their pizzas. Lastly, it took really long time got to be offered more drinks or anything else. And I’m not even mentioning embarrassing sitting at the table right next to the bin. Disgusting. To sum it up, delicious food in a beautiful location but the service could be improved!More

We had a pizza here for dinner one night last summer. While the restaurant wasnt full, the service was slow. But, the pizza was tasty, good size and we were able to share with two halves of the pizza differing.

Really slow service for the food. We were served drinks quickly then waited almost 30 minutes for a tasteless pizza pane. We waited another 20 minutes for a very poor, tasteless, burnt vegetarian pizza. Nearly 2 hours to wait for quick, easy food? No toilet...paper in one of the cubicles or hand towels in the middle of a global pandemic!!! This restaurant wants numbers through the door. Definitely won’t be back.More

Reasonably priced but that’s about it. The courgette linguine was bereft of any flavour and my pizza, although it was the size of a dustbin lid, didn’t really taste of anything either. Great if you need relatively inexpensive fuel. Not so great if you enjoy...what you eat.More

I am not a great fan of chain restaurants, but this one was fairly good. I would not go as high as "Might be best Italian I have ever had! Super authentic." which may be true for the person who wrote that. But: nice food...decently priced, I might go again when in the area. Would I drive a 30+ min detour just to dine here (mandatory in my ranking to get five stars)? Not very likely. Still recommended.More

We got seated right away, because we wanted to sit inside. We had the anti-pasta appetizer that 4 of us ate off of. The pizzas are huge, with a large variety of options!

I picked this place as it was quite busy for a Friday night. The hostess was kind and sat us right away. The sever was friendly as well. The cocktail was refreshing and the carbonara was delicious. Great prices and they also do small portions...as well. The pizzas looked and smelled great. We might have to return and get one!More

The food was delicious. It was probably the best pizza in my life. We also had bruschetta, salads, wine and coffee. Everything was great. Service is quick, friendly and always smiling. Perfect location. We enjoyed it.

Service was very slow. We were told it was a 10 minute wait to get a table but it ended up taking about 50 minutes.

They were very busy and we were old friends meeting up for a meal along with 3 young children. We were kept waiting a long time before being served and the children then became a bit fractious. Normally my friends would eat downstairs where there...is a suitable play area for the children but as I was visisting they chose an upstairs window to view the square. The food when it did arrive was good and the staff were very friendly. Think they were just over busy. Would visit again and recommend normally for families so long as they sit in the right place to keep the young ones amused.More

We tried based on location to our hotel. We sat on the patio which is located on the corner of the restaurant and a busy esplanade. We had a pizza and Caesar salad. The pizza was pretty good, thin crust and cooked well. The service...was not outstanding, it seemed that we were interrupting our server's conversation with boyfriend at the bar to get things like utensils. Not sure I would return based on this experience.More

We used to enjoy our lunch there every time we went to Dresden. Our last visit was terrible. Food is no more Italian, pasta with no flavor full of oil, rissotto had nothing to do with basic Italian recipe. I always used to speak Italian...with the staff, this time, as usually, I ordered caffe which always means espresso. Without any question about my preferences we received americano full of water. Sorry but never again.More

Very busy place on Sunday evening, good to book a table in advance. When we arrived, it took a while for being served, waiters were running up and down. The food was really good. It is not cheap place though, having one starter and three...pizzas with drinks we paid almost 70 EUR together. Still worth to recommend.More
