This restaurant is directly opposite the huge, imposing train station. We chose it for convenience as we were staying at the hotel nearby and we were tired and cold (it was snowing too which was nice). The dishes we chose were all good with no one complaining. The beers were extremely expensive but this is something you will find all... More

We ate late lunch one Saturday. There were 4 waiters running around, all customers waiting long time. We had pizza and chicken pasta. Pizza was ok, but nothing special. I ate 1/3 of my pasta. Waiter came to pick up our plates asking: was that not good? I said it did not taste anything. She took the plate and said:... More

A Pasta and pizza restaurant, a bit expensive for this category but food was good. Not the best pizza or pasta I had but a good one. They serve alcohol. Some tables at the windows towards the street to look out, and some tables outside the restaurant, but inside the galleria.

We had a lunch in this restaurant. First we had to wait for a waiter for quite a while, despite she noticed we would like to order. The waiter did not write our order down, and as a result, my companion did not get drinks she ordered. Myself, I did not receive the side order I had asked for. After... More

I have been there twice. Both times we have tried pizza's and they are really good. The one exotic is the one called Finlandia, topped with reindeer meat. I also like to one called "Isle.... (i can not remember the rest)", topped with mussels, calamary, shrimps and garlic.

We went here since we heard from a view people it should be quite good. Unfortunately we never got the chance to enjoy the food since no one came to our table for over 40 minutes to serve us. Another table in the restaurant waited that long for a bill and for a second table one main course was only... More

Great pizza. You are able to even choose the toppings to your liking with the same price as their menu. The crust is just right. Cafe is so comfortable & staff is very helpful. Highly recommended for a relax enjoyable meal

I've eaten here twice and had the pizza Diavolo both times. Really tasty. First time the service was ok, second time friendly. Good place for lunch, will visit again.

This place is great! Service was kind and effective and the atmosphere was warm and comfortable. The pizza I ordered was fine. A bit soggy in the middle and with a little bit too much cheese for my taste, but the taste was good. I would still definitely visit again.

All cities are full of this kind of italian food. Pizza, pasta, risotto...Amazing that this is so popular. Nothing special to mention. Slow service, dry risotto and overcooked pasta.
