“Good place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

We went for a business lunch. The umbrellas outside are starting to look a little tatty and could probably do with replacing. We ordered a couple of pizzas which were great as always. I ordered mine with extra chilis but got a portion of chips instead. Maybe the waiters should read back the orders just to check that everything is okay.

It has been commented on elsewhere but it would help if they would include the gross charges for the food and drinks etc.

All in all still a good place for lunch and some of the best pizzas arount.

“A place to avoid......”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

II have been there last Sunday for a lunch. Two people.
I closed a table but the waitress told me... seat there pointing with her finger a different table. I sat there and after five minutes these was beating on us... so we moved.
the table was plenty of leaves from the tree. asked to clean it.. no one did it. I did it.
asked a wine, Cabernet. sorry sir out of stock.
they tried to convince me to drink a barolo. .. mid day....
I ordered a Pinot Grigio. I got a 50 usd bottle of wine with no cork, TAPPO CORONA. The same bottle in Italy can cost two three euros....
food arrived cold. porcini mushrooms weren't original.
the coffee was ok. I asked brown sugar... sorry sir. out of stock.

I spent a fortune.... they will never see me again.....

“Real cool place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

It's really nice... that's as much as I can say. However, would be nice to add VAT to your prices so clients know what they are paying for from the get go.
