“Tasty, quick, and very reasonable.”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We had one hour in Nuremberg to buy souvenirs and eat lunch so we stayed in the square and with only 40 minutes to go we ran into Provenza. The inside was warm and cozy. The pizzas were out to us within 15 minutes and we had 5 minutes to spare before meeting up with our group. We had two drinks, two pizzas, and took away with us two pieces of fruit cake that were delicious all for 25 Euros with the tip. The pizzas were also very tasty with a thin crust. Could not have asked for anything better on that very cold, rainy day.

“Worst restaurant of the trip”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

For a restaurant in the main square of the old town, the service was simply horrible. The waiter was very rude, told me off for holding an empty plastic bottle in my hand (no, I was not drinking from it).

The worst part was that at the end of it all, the group of us asked for the bill and as normal people do, didn't give exact payment. The waiter, instead of giving back the exact change, simply kept a 20% service tip from the bigger bills we handed him. Of course, being tourists, we didn't understand half of what was going on and had no capacity to reject him. This was incredibly rude behaviour for no service given to us at all.

Unless the service improves, it was a dreadful experience.

“dreadful service”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

large restaurant ideally situated in the city centre
no english menus so the 4 of us made the waiter understand what we required, the starter arrived with no problem and then 3 main meals, After about 30 minutes we asked about the pizza - reply was "there is a back log will be a few more minutes" - we then asked again to be told they had lost the order so we cancelled and asked for the bill. That arrived with the pizza which we promptly sent back
apparantly we were not the only ones to be messed about (this was a group trip)
next day we discovered that our pizza was then given to someone else staing "a mistake had been made in the kitchen - would you accept this one

“Great Cafe for People Watching”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We stopped here in the afternoon for a latte macchiato and a local beer. The service was very good and the prices were reasonable. They make tasty ice coffees as well. We had a good view of what was taking pace in the busy square.

“Excellent Service”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Value for money with good quality food with plenty of choice. Typical Italian laid back service which means they do not rush you so if your in a hurry remember to tell them when you order your food.
