We’ve been travelling a little while, on a small budget. So we decided to treat ourselves and all day we were looking forward to pizza. Service was fine, apart from if there’s any small problem the waiter have to find someone else to interpret for them. We ordered two calzones- They arrived very quickly. I cut mine in two to allow it to cool down and then bit into a piece. The mushrooms were raw and the insides were cold. Not warm, cold. My partners the same. I thought we were pretty reasonable to ask for them just to be heated and was told the calzone is normally cold in the middle as it’s hard to cook the inside. I’ve had calzone before and it’s never been the case, but to give the manager credit he changed both. The next day we were hiking with an Italian from Milan and asked him if this was true- he said absolutely not.

We’ve just had an incredible meal for more than half the cost and the price we paid for in the end warm calzone we still feel bitter at paying such a price.

If you’re on holiday and want a western food. Then fill your boots. But it wasn’t for us.

Dear customers,

Sorry about the problem with the two calzoni first of all.
For the sake of fairness, please allow me to point out that I never said that a calzone is supposed to be cold inside (that would be foolish). I only said that the mushrooms can occasionally turn out raw, being in the interior of the folded dough. That was clearly our mistake, and that is why I apologised and quickly decided to change both the calzoni.
I am partially reassured by the fact that, after the meal, you guys told me that all was ok,so I guess the second calzoni turned out well, although that does not erase our mistake of course..

As per the price, I only would like to underline the fact that we import real italian ingredients (such as cheeses, olive oil and cold cuts) and use chemical-free vegetables. All that has an impact on the prices that are clearly displayed at the entrance of the restaurant and on all the menus.

Again, sorry for the mistake.

Best regards.

Paolo Felice
(Co-owner)

Beautiful place with a great rooftop. Pizza and pasta very tasty and homemade. Prices a bit expensive compared with other places, but it is worth in Kalaw.
