“Don't waste your time and money.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Probably the worst restaurant experience I can think of. Total waste of money and time. It looked cute from the appearance of their outside patio and the menu looked alright, so I went in with my family.

Inside looked like a hideous banquet hall with large TVs blaring loud music videos. It was very tacky, but we didn't want to sit out in the cold. The host was unfriendly from the beginning, and he was annoyed that we didn't order any beverages. I explained to him that we had a late night with too much wine the night before. He didn't respond and walked away. Fine. We took our time looking over the menu since everything was in Italian or German with some incorrect English. The host came and hurried us to order before any of us closed our menu books.

The food was edible, but not worth the money. We had MUCH better food for half the price in Salo and Gargnano. The host gave us old, stale bread. There were flies everywhere attacking our plates. My grilled vegetable platter was overcooked and my aunt's seafood dish had broken clam shell pieces. She had to eat too carefully and couldn't really enjoy her food. My cousins were equally unthrilled with their selections.

Then the host came back and started clearing our table before we were finished. He was the rudest waiter/host. I asked for the check. He brought it over then stood over our table like a vulture while I looked over the receipt and counted our money. Again, the rudest waiter/host/human being I've ever encountered.

Do yourself a favor and save yourself from this hideous place. It will be a total waste of your money and time.

“Good Quality Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

For a nice casual meal & a good pizza, this restaurant ticked all the boxes. Sat outside watching the world go by. Very comprehensive menu. Lots of choice. Lovely starters. We opted for pizzas as we were in Italy, thought we'd try a "real pizza". Not at all disappointed.

Good pizza, average service. Nothing to complain but also nothing worth mentioning.

“Nice place for a good pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

If you're just looking for a good pizza sat outside with good service then this place won't let you down. Good selection of pizzas plus nice starters. Opted to have dessert elsewhere - sampling local icecream sat on the jetty.
