This must be the only restaurant in Italy to serve microwaved lasagne. Add to that tinned mushrooms on the pizza, mouldy fruit in the fridge and grubby toilets. Don't be seduced by the view or lovely flowers at the entrance, this place is revolting.

Staying in Sant'Andrea we decided to venture out from the hotel for some food one night. The hotel staff recommended this place.
We arrived just in time for the sun setting and decided to sit outside on the terrace - all good so far despite the lack of welcome when we arrived. Location and views were about the only plus side of the whole evening!

After a while we were given menus by the waitress with the usual lack of Italian welcoming (well so it seemed if you didn't speak Italian)...we ordered a house wine, large beer (400ml), pasta dish to share and a pizza each. My girlfriends drink arrived followed by mine a while later(10mins) - one rather foamy 200ml beer (not what ordered!). Not what I call great service if you want to have a nice drink together as the sun is setting.

Pasta Carbonara dish came to share and was OK if not rather raw eggy tasting/looking. The restaurant was now quite busy with only 1 waitress serving at least 20 people. Pizzas came and this really ruined the evening, girlfriends was fine but I was served a cheese pizza sprinkled with rocket (rather than prosciutto and rocket)...not a chef myself but how many people order a rocket and cheese pizza!!!

Pizza was returned to kitchen and again served shortly after cold and with several slices of meat just dropped on top of the pizza. Very poor and served again by miserable waitress with not so much of an apology.

In summary, very poor service, understaffed, average menu and prices with only good point being the view and setting. Wouldn't recommend despite setting.

And forgot to mention the wildlife - cat, toad and large hornet all made an appearance throughout the evening!
