I wasn't very hungry, so ordered a small pizza with anchovies, red onions, and capers, with a strong red wine suggested by the waiter. The staff were very low key, observant, and cordial. The wine was amazing and the pizza was very good. I moved inside because outside began to become a little windy. Inside felt very safe and cozy... More

Stopped here mid afternoon for a late lunch. The place was really busy and tables nearly all full, including those outside in the April sunshine. Salad was tasty and well prepared, but I stared enviously at the customers who had ordered pizza as they looked amazing

We happened past this restaurant and since it was busy, we chose to have dinner here. The staff was friendly. We saw that the pizzas were large, so we ordered one to share. The pear crumble dessert was worth the wait, as it is made when ordered. It was served warm with sour cream sorbet that melted and blended deliciously... More

This place is always packed and there's at least one reason for it. They offer a very good and overall huge Pizza at a reasonabel prize. We like to come back every time. But you have to like it, that it gets a bit noisy inside.

The wait staff at this restaurant did not warn us that the pizzas were so large that one pizza was more than enough for two people. As a result we ordered two pizzas and had way too much food. The pizzas were so big that they overflowed the large plates on which they were served. As well, we ordered salads... More

This restaurant is in the heart of Linz and has a great buzz about it. It deals mainly in pastas and piazzas and be warned those piazzas are immensely generous. The prices are great. Inside it is quite noisy with high volume music. Outside as got a touch of atmosphere about it with plenty of tables and good service! Enjoy!

Absolutely loved this restaurant. Great atmosphere, efficient staff and the biggest pizza you will ever see. Don't be tempted to buy one each unless you plan to take half home.....they are seriously big! Can't wait to go back to Linz again, just to revisit this great eatery.

We only chose this restaurant as a cataclysmic thunderstorm was threatening and it was right next to our hotel. The staff were friendly and pointed to the daily board from which we had to choose our food. I had spaghetti was anchovies, olives, and tomato for about 9 Euros. It was excellent as was the beer.

A special place with great food and atmosphere, the only regrets we have is that we discovered the place on our last day in Linz.
