The service was terrible! We were seated right before a French couple by the same server. The server went directly to them and waited there while they were still deciding. This went on for maybe 15 mins cuz the server basically went through the entire menu with them. Meanwhile we were just sitting there waiting. He should have let them decide... Turn around ( we were sitting right next to them) see if we're ready and then answer any Qs they might have. But, it's not reasonable to stand there and wait in case they have any Qs. Finally someone else took our order. We never saw that guy again. And the first guy never asked us if we wanted anything else.., another drink? Perhaps some dessert? Nope! He spent all his time with the French couple ( neglecting the rest of his tables as well). At one point he even made a detour to show the couple another table's plate and told them that he could bring them some right away if they wanted. meanwhile, no other servers walked by! Worst service ever!
The food was just ok....
I would definitely NOT recommend this place to anyone!

we ordered fried shrimps and squid and pasta "pansotti" with walnut sauce. The fried dish was clearly coming from those frozen mass market distributors and not fresh made. The pansotti had no taste at all and small quantity.

We would have better ordered a pizza, surely it would have had much more taste!

This has excellent quality food, but it is best to ask for their specials. The best dishes are not on the Menu. Personally they don't do the best pizza in town.

This place is very popular with locals and if you visit often enough over the years you'll see the same clientele returning over and over.

I've heard some people that have had issues with the services. Personally I have never had any issues and they are just fantastically child friendly.

We dined here last night. When I requested extra mushroom on my pizza they informed me fresh mushroom would be an additional €4! Tinned woul be €2. I asked for fresh regardless of the ridiculous cost but they were tinned when served. We were served the usual bread rolls which we did not touch. The bill arrived with a €5 cover charge. We told the waiter we did not have the bread but were told in no uncertain terms that we had to pay it. We asked him to show us the menu where it said it was compulsory. He showed us an Italian menu but it simply said bread and butter was €2.50 per head. The manager told him to waive it when we refused to pay it but he was still not satisfied that we had won the argument. His attitude was dreadful and he will kill trade in this restaurant until he is sacked. I would strongly recommend you don't dine here while this idiot is working there.

the service was terrible they proposed us the house wine and it was disgusting, after that the pizza was also very bad and when we wanted to pay they were not friendly at all. i guess they wanted to sell some disgusting deserts too.
