“Pizza and steakhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Recommended by our hotel. Very young hip scene. Oblong, huge pizzas with an amazing assortment of toppings available. Beautifully dressed pizza- not too much not too little. Also roasted lamb pieces on a stick. Very good. Great prices.

“Tasty but service needs help”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

The menu has interesting salad options and the pizza options are numerous (all pizzas are in an oblong shape). It was tasty but the service staff seemed to be rushed although there were only a handful of people dining.

“Awesome pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

We dropped in here for a pizza and a beer at lunchtime. The location is in a sidestreet just off the lakefront, with some tables outside on the pavement. The pizza was huge and delicious, the service attentive. Recommended.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2011

Me and my friends come quite often here,more likely for aperitivi,which includes in the drink prices the buffet with tasty little canapés,veggies,fruits etc. The choice of their drinks is ot that much,but what they have are good wines,champagne and a great yummy cocktail 'jaimaica'The service is good, the staff friendly.The restaurant offers a very good and tasty riva pizza,thin with fresh toppings and a great choice.A good thing is,the kitchen is open until quite late for italians usual opening hours.
