We had a lovely evening for my dads 60th birthday celebration. The staff were brilliant, catering to our needs. One of our party was vegan and the owner created an 'off menu' dish for her. Highly recommended, fantastic service, will definiately be back.

Very well done to the staff but especially to the food and service. Well recommend. With a niece view, though they were busy we still had food freshly and in time.

As Chef of the Pulena Restaurant, I would like to ask you how did you evaluate this dish? already ordered, without even knowing what the waiter ordered! so if I'm invited as she was madam / lady on a group of 20 people only she put this evaluation if I remember well told the waiter "give me the same" while a neighbor ordered, not even knowing what he ordered! I think that those who ordered this dinner also chose this menu that gave her the opportunity to eat other things but she ordered so randomly and then write an evaluation that goes against the work that several people have done in this place for almost a year and with ratings always medium high and always trying to please everyone as much as possible! having said this I do not have it with you but the next time you order in a local inform yourself about what you order do not tell the waiter give me the same thing as my friend because with these evaluations made so carefree put in difficulty several families and the work they do. Thanks and I hope to see you again Como Chef del restaurante Pulena, me gustaría preguntarle cómo evaluó este plato. Ya ordenado, sin saber siquiera lo que ordenó el camarero! así que si me invitaron porque era la señora / señora de un grupo de 20 personas, solo hizo esta evaluación si recuerdo bien, y le dije al camarero "dame lo mismo" mientras que un vecino ordenó, ¡sin siquiera saber lo que ordenó! Creo que los que ordenaron esta cena también eligieron este menú que le dio la oportunidad de comer otras cosas, pero ella lo ordenó de manera aleatoria y luego escribió una evaluación que va en contra del trabajo que varias personas han hecho en este lugar durante casi un año y con calificaciones siempre medio alto y siempre tratando de complacer a todos tanto como sea posible! una vez dicho esto, no lo tengo con usted, pero la próxima vez que haga un pedido en un local, infórmese sobre lo que pide, no le diga al camarero que me dé lo mismo que a mi amigo porque con estas evaluaciones tan despreocupadas, ponga en dificultad a varias familias y el trabajo que hacen. Gracias y espero verte de nuevo. Come chef del ristorante Pulena, vorrei chiederti come hai valutato questo piatto? già ordinato, senza nemmeno sapere cosa ha ordinato il cameriere! quindi se sono invitata come fosse signora / signora su un gruppo di 20 persone, lei ha messo questa valutazione solo se ricordo bene ha detto al cameriere "dammi la stessa cosa" mentre un vicino ha ordinato, non sapendo nemmeno cosa ha ordinato! Penso che quelli che hanno ordinato questa cena abbiano scelto questo menu che le ha dato l'opportunità di mangiare altre cose, ma lei ha ordinato in modo casuale e poi ha scritto una valutazione che va contro il lavoro che molte persone hanno fatto in questo posto per quasi un anno e con voti sempre medio alti e sempre cercando di accontentare tutti il ​​più possibile! Detto questo non ce l'ho con te ma la prossima volta che ordini in un locale informati di ciò che ordini non dica al cameriere di darmi la stessa cosa del mio amico perché con queste valutazioni reso così spensierato metti in difficoltà parecchie famiglie e il lavoro che fanno. Grazie e spero di rivederti
