Called one evening for a snack and glass of wine. Lovely place and attentive staff. Pizza to die for.

We wanted a restaurant off the main drag in Corfu and came across this little gem. Lovely food and excellent service.sat outside surrounded by vines, very pretty. We ordered pizzas and salads, all excellent, large portions (we ended up with a doggy bag for some of the pizza). The restaurant provides complimentary bruschetta whilst waiting for our order which was... More

Chose this restaurant to eat at on our second night in Corfu as we had passed it a couple of times walking into town from our hotel. Every time it was well frequented and since my husband and I do love our Napolitan Pizzas we decided to stop. It was only then that we checked on Trip Advisor and saw... More

We had read the mixed reviews of this place before going but it was close to our hotel and always seemed to be busy when we passed. The service was good - we were attended to quickly and politely and the waitress entertained my limited attempts at Greek ( but checked in English). We were given free bruschetta while waiting...

Waitresses chosen for their looks but not ability. Friendly but slightly chaotic management. Boss spent time flirting with staff and his son rode his bike and talked on the phone. The bruschetta was nicely done - pizza base with fresh toppings but the shredded lettuce featured in every dish without adding anything. Main course of pasta zucchini and tomatoes had... More

Our first visit was in June, where, after we had our pizza (food was just ok, nothing special) and asked for the bill, we were told that "Sorry, but we cant accept any debit or credit card because there is a problem today in the system". Today -two months later- we visited again, only this time we asked in advance... More

Long time didn't eat such a bad pasta. Ordered pene with gorgonzola and rocket and got it with tagliatelle instead, with a pinch of goronzola and it was totally dry! There was only a traces of rocket and wasn't even fresh. Service was unprofessional. It's nice to have a family business but if stuff is forgetting the order and similar... More

Once they seated us not interested Ordered an off shell prawn dish from waiter who answered the phone in the middle of taking our order! After half an hour we complained that we were still waiting and food arrived with on shell prawns! Waitress told us they didn't do prawns off shell. Didn't seem bothered! We left....!
