“Consistently Excellent”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We have been dining at Da Fano for 20 years now and they never fail to deliver excellent Italian food, friendly waiters and a superb location right on the marina. Try the Eggplant Paremesan and the pizzas!

“Missing food and terrible service”
Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

We went to this pizzeria for a late birthday lunch for a seven year old little girl. After waiting 10 minutes for our drinks they took our order. The food was very late coming to the table for pizzas and pasta and half our order was missing! We had to reuse our cutlery (something i find disgusting) and the food was thrown at us in a very rude manner. We actually had to tell them the little girl was hungry so they would rush the order and evebn then we had to give her some of our food because they didnt bring her order or half the starter! When we had enough we went to pay the bill and saw that they hadnt taken the childs order at all and they even tried to charge us for more drinks than we had. When we told the waiter about the missing food we were met with shrugs and no apology. No tip and never going back again!

“Great for snack or meal”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

We called in for a toastie and coffee for lunch, we have never been there before but were tempted by the special offer of 2 euros. The location, food and service were 1st class, I noticed the people on the next table were having cake with their coffee so we returned a few days later to sample the cake - it was delicious! We were told by the friendly waitress that the cake is baked on the premises every morning. Highly recommended.

“Good food”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

We ate here twice and the food is very good and the House red wine Excellent I did find the service indifferent Not very friendly which for us we found unusual in the area Everything seemed a bit too much trouble and more interested in having a chat with their friends ! Would still eat there again because of the quality of the food
