We have been there because our Lonely Planet defined ora pizza as the best in Kochi. I suppose the owner and staff are changed because I don't think anyone could call that rigid piece of bread topped with sauce a pizza.. We also asked for a Caprese salad but there were no mozzarella. The menu says that the Ice is... More

Overall a very pleasant dining experience. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was nice we had thin base pizzas and there was plenty of choice for toppings. Lovely atmosphere with live acoustic guitar music. We thought the prices were a little steep but this could be due to eating continental food in India, it is usually more... More

We ate here last night and was pleasantly surprised. There was a variety of pizzas and pastas and starters to choose from. Only thing is the place doesn't serve alcohol. The staff were attentive and nice:) the food was yummy and filling. Worth the price I would say. Would recommend people to go here if they want nice pizza.

Went here to try something different. Food was awful. Potato salad was covered with rank iceberg lettuce. Mains-lasagne was mean portioned and tasteless. Pizza tasted like a poor frozen one from low grade supermarket. Staff seemed terrified of maitre'd. Only saving grace was the live music. Go over the road to Talk of the Town' and have fried rice which... More

We had a lovely experience at Upstairs, a little Italian restaurant tucked in near the Basilica in Fort Kochi. This was an impromptu call for a get together of coursemates and their families at Kochi. Although we were not at full strength we greatly enjoyed the food and the time we spent there. The food was good but a few... More

One evening we wanted something else then a curry again. Found Upstairs Italian, this restaurant was also recommended in the Lonely Planet. We were the only guests there. We noticed the restaurant had been closed in the afternoon. Do not expect italian food. Our experience is that the best Italian food is served outside Italy. Not here. The lasagna came... More
