Pizzas take a lot of time to arrive, no draught beer, no Italian beer, cretan salad didn't have dakos, special taliatele with mushroom and bacon/prochuto was drowned in cream so no taste.
It could have been worse, vegetarian pizza was excellent and spaghetti carbonara was...not that heavy on the stomach.
I don't think we will go back.More
Even though it is on the tourist side, where you don't know what quality of food and service you will receive, we were happily surprised to see a very friendly staff, warm hearted owner -that confirms to me the hospitality and mentality of the region-...and very delicious dishes and flavours.
Our friend with the peculiar taste of the diavola pizza and to add anything that just burns the throat and everything in its way down, met his mentor! ;) ;)
Thank you for a beautiful night and keep up the good work! :)More

Very positive surprise! We graved some pasta with my mom after heavy shopping and eating healthy Greek salad all day long. We found this place, it was fuuull but luckily a couple just left and we could get their table. My mom had the Greek...pizza and I had pasta bolognese. Wow the size of the meals! I eat a lot, but just could finish the half of the past. My mom had maybe three huge slices and we were done! The pizza was delicious, I prefer more al dente pasta so for me it was bit overcooked but the salsa was yummy. The waiters were helpful and the service was fast. Also incredibly cheap restaurant. This was simply a great great surprise! Only minus was that the music from the next restobar was really loud and they played trap music which I hate. But the food compensated the horrible music!More
The staff was not experienced at all but the owner is the worst ever - so ironic and rude! My tortelini al forno came to me like e soup - tortelinis were 'swimming' in creme. My friend's order arrived after two failed attempts. When I...asked for a discount or a treat as a sorry gesture by them, the owner joked at me about if I was fastening. Never again.More
