“So vibrant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

We had dinner on a Saturday evening in the open air part of this restaurant and there was a singer (Fillipo Lippi if I remember right) performing together with a pianist. They permormed many songs of all kinds but what stole everyone's impressions were the arias. Fantastic! People walking on the piazza stood to hear and enjoy and everyone was excited.
As for the food, it was decent intrenational dishes, while the service was efficient and polite.

“Memorable for the wrong reasons!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Ate here twice - first time was enjoyable largely because of the great location, right in the Plaza, with all sorts of activity to spectate, and live music. Food pretty over-priced and wine prices astronomical, but venue meant we gave it the benefit of the doubt...and went back on a subsequent occasion, when the service was completely dreadful. The spineless Maître D, vanished after we challenged him to organise his staff, and succeeded only in winding up our already arrogant waiter.
I could go on, but take it from me - they are trading on their location - give it a miss - they're having a laugh.

“Awful service/food/price”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Sunday afternoon, my family and I simply want to get a coffee and some cake along with it. We sit down on the outside tables at Paszkowski -what a mistake!

My mother asks for a glass of tonic water -they bring us a bottle of sparkling water.
My father orders coffee and cake -they bring the coffee... and 15 minutes later the cake.
We ask for 3 babbà cakes -they say they only have 2: the waiter says he could bring some other pastries... and never comes back.

Waiters on the brink of rudeness, menu sadly poor of variety and prices which would be understandable considering the place IF the service was high standard as well.

NEVER AGAIN!

“Decent food, slow service, and overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

We found this place via Rick Steve's and were severely disappointed. The food was decent, but very overpriced for what you get. The service was very slow and not very helpful. Would not recommend.

“Great Cocktails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

I came here with a friend, and I didn't go inside, but what I've seen and heard from it (the heated terrace, the cocktail card, and the live music) was awesome.
Also, when I was here there was a merry-go-round on the square that ran until midnight; if you're feeling playful it's totally hilarious.

A tip for people who like cocktails: the "Dubai" was very good here!
