“Pretty good pizza, beer...service a litttle slow...”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Stopped in on the upper floor, ordered a pizza and a couple of drafts. I think the bartender was responsible for the entire floor as well as drinks for both floors. He was spread pretty thin...took a while to get refills, initial greeting/order took a while.

The food and atmosphere were nice, perhaps they could use an extra staff member on this night?

“Excellent pizza and kind service”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I went to this restaurant three times. Two for pizzas and one for gnocchi. The flavour is excellent and the service is very, very kind.
The place is very good and you can rest there while drinking a special beer or a juice (red berries, I suggest).
I´m sure I´ll come back when in Puerto Varas again. Maybe this year :)

“Not very impressive”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Our hostel owner told us this was the best pizza in Puerto Varas. We came over Fiestas Patrias, so not much was open and Parentesis itself seemed to only have one cook and one server for a Saturday night. The pizza we got after a long wait wasn't bad, but definitely not worthy of any rave reviews. They only had two draught beers, which seemed odd for a place we were told was a popular nighttime spot for locals.

I'd give this restaurant another shot during the summer when it's surely better staffed and full of more people, but the long wait, high prices, and unimpressiveness of the food made this trip not so enjoyable.
