“Disappointing service”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

We went there a Saturday evening, wihtout reservation. We managed to get a table in the main room, after refusing a table near the toilets, but the "manager" seemed determined to shorten our stay. The food was average: pizza was ok but the pasta and deserts not so great.
The bad part was the service: they practically thrown the plates on the table, they forgot to bring us a bottle of water (they never realized as we gave it up) and they didn't even bother to answer when we thanked for the meal and left.
They had a lot of people eating there so probably they didn't care much about some tourists they will never see again.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Good pastas and pizza, friendly service. Very generous salads that can be shared between 2-3 people. Has the feel of a neighborhood restaurant that doesn't object to tourists. House wine also delightful.

“Give it a try!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Judging from the reviews this place must have gotten better recently. We stopped in a local wine store and asked for a recommendation for lunch and were directed here. We has a great meal with good service. Risotto with shrimp and calamari was great, salad with tuna was fresh and plentiful, veal was well cooked, and the pizza was great. Ambience was really inviting and interesting. Stone walls and a view of the pizza oven. Lots of local business people having lunch. Staff was polite and helpful. Give it a try!

“Great for lunch”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We sat down at 2:30 for lunch and the waitresses seemed pissed because we were their last table of their lunch service so they didn't care too much about us. They were polite but quick to get us everything and didn't do much to make us comfortable. That being said, our pizzas and calzones were DELICIOUS and not horribly priced (€6-€10). The inside and outside are both nice and it's on a quiet street just from the center. Overall, a good lunch.

“Overpriced, can't go fast enough, prawns not fresh, clumsy waiter”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Titel says it all i guess? They do their utmost to 'finish' your table in 1h i guess... Wine, apero and antipasti arrived at the same moment.... Antipasti were good.... I 'enjoyed' the secondi (grilled fish) during the whole next day :-(. Maybe ok for other italians, wouldn't recommend it for tourists...
