Good pasta for a good price on the waterfront of Hvar! Both the Carbonara and 4 cheese with Gnocchi was tasteful!

This restaurant, Mama Leone's on the Riva in Hvar Town, probably relies on its location to pull in customers: goodness knows it is not the quality of the food. The pizza (seafood) was okay but, as we say in the States--nothing to write home about. The penne pasta with mushroom sauce, broccoli and little pieces of chicken--not so good. Well, there you are--not much else to say. We went to Mama Leone's as it was listed in Guide Routard and they often, being French, find good places to eat, but not this time I am sorry to report. Okay, a posh yacht rocked gently on its mooring to our entertainment. It was the only classy thing about the evening. Service-EEHHH.

The food was terrible and service was rude. Aftyer trying a few restaurants on the Island of Vis , we decided to try Pizza . After all, how much can you ruin pizza??? Well I guess you can omit the sauce and the cheese and overcook the crust and shove it at someone and then ask them to pay $30. That's how you ruin pizza on Vis. Oh, yes, then you push then out of the restaurant , because you are closing....

Nobody outside to greet, or take you to a table.
40 minutes for a pizza. They weren't busy.
Slow service, uninterested waiting staff who spent more time hanging out by the kitchen entrance than with or near customers.
Ingredient quality was terrible (the bacon, in example, had pieces of bone in it)
Food was dry (read:overcooked) and bland.
Overpriced for what it was - there are plenty of better places to grab such stuff all over Hvar.

Tldr - steer clear. Plenty of better value options in Hvar

Went here because a friend recommended it. I ordered the exact same salad which one staff member was making at the time of my order. I was surprised to get the salad with half the amount of feta cheese and other extras then in the ones I saw earlier. When I asked about it, the girls just gave me a dirty look and the guy said that my portion was "standard" and his portions were "generous". It tasted so so anyway, so the size did not matter at the end.
