“Great place for a pizza & wine”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We really enjoyed our late night pit stop at Vieja Lira. We'd had a terrible dinner earlier in the evening and were left jaded and still a bit hungry so we stopped into this place on a whim and had a really nice prosciutto pizza and glass of wine. Nice romantic atmosphere and pleasant staff.

“Very pleasant meal”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

I joined a group of friends on the rooftop terrace and enjoyed a very nice meal of salmon pasta and margarita pizza. This is a mellow, unpretentious place that was full of locals. Very recommendable!

“Quiet on a Thursday night, beautiful, pleased.”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

Not ravenous after a hefty lunch, found lovely choice of salads and soups (selected a tasty tomato based Pasta y Fagioli with aromatic sprigs of rosemary but no discernible pasta); one of us couldn't resist (or finish) the potato gnocchi with a bright green pesto sauce a tad light on pine nuts. Wide choice of wines by the glass and bottle. Bread basket had three choices. An attentive attractive staff. May return for a heartier dinner. Good value.

“Terrific”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

We shared a pizza and salad at this beautiful restaurant. The service was fantastic and the thin crust pizza was great. It was a nice change to get some real Italian food here.
