Very bad service and the worst pizza i have ever eaten in a restaurant. It is really a tourist trap, no care about quality at all

What a lovely position, overlooking the piazza and the towers. Perfect for an evening meal, relaxing as the sun dies down. That's where the positive aspect ends. Food was very ordinary and not particularly tasty. Service was awful, slow, disinterested and clumsy. We had to...More

Avoid this restaurant at all costs! The food is nothing short of rancid. Ordered the pappardelle ragu. It wasn't pappardelle pasta and the "ragu" was just offal and bone. I took 2 bites and had to stop eating for fear of throwing up. Their drinks...More
