“Shocking”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Terrible service in general (over half an hour before drinks served, an hour for starters) and an arrogant yet incompetent waiter unfortunately dampened our enjoyment of this restaurant. Food good but would never go back.

“Atrocious service, average food”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The waiters were rude and surly, took us an hour to get a drink and the waiters shouted at us about the fact that they didn't have ice. When the food eventually arrived it was not what we ordered but ate it anyway because we were so hungry and it wasn't particularly good. Definitely avoid id possible!

“The Worst Experience Ever”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I have never ever experienced such bad service and attitude in a restaurant in my life. In fact I heard at least 3 other tables complain as we did. It took more than 35 minutes for our drinks to be served and a further 68 minutes for our food to arrive. Had we not had kids with us we would have left without paying the drinks bill. They had set the hearts on the Pizza they had ordered. The attitude and behaviour from the management staff was unacceptable. Restaurant is dirty and shabby ..... An experience never to be repeated.

“Unable to cope with crowd”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Our large family (16 people) had a meal here just after Christmas. The service was slow and our waitress seemed to be very inexperienced. Drinks arrived individually and not together. The food also arrived bit by bit so that some people were more than half way through their meal by the time the last food had arrived. Two of us had the parmigiana which was absolutely horrible. Not only was it luke warm but it had a grainy consistency which led us to believe that it had been frozen and then defrosted in a microwave. Given that this area had a steady influx of people over the holiday season, one would think that they would hire more staff in order to deal with the crowds.

“Best Pizza”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Had dinner there last night, party of 8. We went at 18:00 to get a nice table as they don't take bookings. Had an awesome view. Our table ordered cocktails,beer and wine. Beer and wine arrived straight away but cocktails took nearly an hour because of how busy the cocktail bar gets this time of year - to be expected if you have the best view in town. So for the rest of the night we stuck to wine. The pizzas were really good! I can recommend the Italian o e with the truffle oil aswell as the bacon, chilli, Gorgonzola and avo. We found the service very efficient and friendly. Obviously restaurants that are the talk of the town with their good pizzas will be full and you will have to be more patient than in the off season. All and all I highly recommend Cornuti's and the delicious pizzas.
