“Absoloute tourist trap - bad food - high prices - rude service”
Reviewed June 17, 2011

The restaurant did not look to bad on the first sight.
We walked in with a group of 6 people.
The service was trying to "play" Italian but not really interested .
We ordered pizza and pasta.
The bread severed with the starters was industrial made buns far away from any Italian bread I have ever seen.
Dry and hard.
The food is absolutely tasteless, at least it was hot.
The salad was brown and mucilaginous at the edges.
As we called for the bill they gave us a piece of paper some numbers on it.
We again asked for separate bills (this was a business meal).
Now the service was getting loud and rude!
They refused to give us separate and detailed (including VAT e.g.) bills.
At the end they were getting xenophobic and forced us to pay combined.
Never had a worth combination of bad food and service like this!!!
