This pizzeria is located on a square out side the city centre. Considering its location, it was overpriced for what it offered. We ate risotto and gnocchi which came in large portions but were nothing special.

For the last 35 years, this is my most favoured Pizza Restaurant. Everyone is very polite, friendly, charming and ready to present the best service. The mixed salad with Italian dressing is just a dream. I enjoy every meal, experience quality and high class of life. Everyone is in very good health, stylish dressed and well informed about what's going... More

I like writing balanced reviews, but this restaurant deserves a one-star rating. The illegal practice of charging for tap water even if you consume food and other beverages is outrageous. On top of that, the charge is wrongly declared as "mineral water" on the receipt, so they must be doing dodgy bookkeeping too. We called the waiter out on the... More

My favorite dining establishment I've been to. Owner is fantastic, service is great, atmosphere is really good. The paillard di vitello with rigatoni alfredo is my personal favorite. Never had anything but great experiences! Wish this menu would come to Minnesota!

I was intending to go to another restaurant with a friend from out of town, but on a Sunday not much is open in this part of Bern. Service was fairly good from one waiter but unfriendly from another, even though we were almost the only people there. The food did not take too long, but was very average and... More

We were staying at the Bern expo, and wanted a place away from old town, but near our hotel. It was a short tram stop, but we walked. No English menu, but you can generally wing it with italian. We got a mixed salad and pizza; a simple salami and black olive. The service was fast (a plus). The pizza... More

We had a wonderful dinner here. Didn't want the loud hustle and bustle of Old Town so this was perfect. Pizza, shrimp with olive oil and chicken balsamic dishes were prepared very well. Service was excellent and extremely patient and friendly manager helping us with the German and Italian menu was so helpful. Desserts were very good also. Would definitely... More

Mascarpone pizza and funghi risotto. Don't let the unwelcoming face of one of the waitresses scare you! Several Italians spearing there when we were leaving.

We got off the tram at Breitenrain, 2 stops from our hotel. It was a great find. The service excellent and the food was great. We appreciated that the waiter explained that their credit card system was down and apologized that we would have to pay cash. He said more than once that the card system was "kaput". After we...

Service was quick, friendly and efficient. There were 5 of us and all the orders were correct. I went for the lasagna. It was just right I really enjoyed it. I'd say its the best Lasagna I've had. My friends had pizza and one had tagliatelle. Everything was 100% perfect. The restaurant is on the main road and is easy... More
