Food is average to good but what I cannot bear is their "policy" with reservation: we have been here three times with friends and each time, despite our reservation, we had to wait too much because of overbooking, without any apology. The message you get is that customer is totally irrelevant ....

The food was really good but only 4 stars due to the waiter putting 2 small brown bags containing bread on the table then charging €8 onto the bill without warning. Nice clean place with attentive staff.

Visited there twice in three days and the first visit was excellent however the following visit was more of a disappointment. The food was excellent but the service depends on whether the waitress who understands English is working that night, the other waiters and waitresses tried hard but didn't quite have the panache that we expected from our visit. No... More

I recommend the pizzas which are quite good in this place. Since the menu offers much more, I tried "il cuoppo", a selection of typical neapolitan fried appetizers, but nothing special...probably better to stick to the pizza ....the service was perfect and the guys very nice and cheerful

We had several pasta dishes which were delicious! The prices compared to other restaurants are very reasonable.

I have eaten here several times and it is consistent. The pizza is very good, especially the Diavola. Also, the appetizer plate with cheese and mixed sliced meats was wonderful to share in three. It is quite abundant and filing. In fact, my friend ordered a steak dish and was unable to finish because he didn't have enough space! I... More

I went there with my colleagues to have dinner, although it was full but the dynamic waiter from Bangladesh did his best to let us sit in 5 min. We had a great dining experience.

My family and I had a good experience in this restaurant. It's a casual place with assorted options in the menu. We had a 500g fresh mozzarella ball as a starter and I had a pasta with bolognese ragù of buffalo meat. Both very good for my taste. The price quality ratio is Ok, considering it's a very touristic area.... More

First of all the glasses were cloudy and forks and knifes not the cleanest! I ordered a tenderloin (rare) with whitewine sauce and cabbage as side. They served a couple of (well done) slices of beef in a grizzled sauce, where the fat or oil was splitted up from the cream. Instead of cabbage they got me some mushy carrots.... More

50' waiting to take away 3 pizzas, despite children starving. But worse of all they served before us a take away customer who ordered later. This is typical Italian attitude not respecting cue and being regardless towards children. Staff hopeless too.
