“Too messy but good quality. ”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

Very long waiting time if you go during Summer nights, although after you sit it usually doesn't take too long to be served.
Staff is ok.
Food is of good quality and portions aren't bad at all.
Prices are normal for the location.

“Run as far away as possible from this so called restaurant”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

After waiting about 40 min for a table and although there were a few free tables and we weren't even take into consideration of the staff, there comes a 5 member family, portuguese, (we weren't portuguese so we were talking to each other in our native language, but we speak portuguese too) and the waiter welcomes them inside akthough they came after us and when i asked why they don't respect the line i was told that they knew each other ( the waiter and one of that 5 member family) and that i should wait a few more minutes to be asked inside. I told him that is not fare, only because we are not portuguese we shouldn'be treated like this and that we deserve that table i front of the other family because we were the first to arrive at the line. I had to ask for the complaints Book in order to be heard by the chief of the waiters.she found us a table but we weren't in the mood to have dinner there anymore si we left.i felt that we were discriminated for not being portuguese and we were very badly treated ( with arogance and no respect ).I won't go there anymore not even to take a coffee because of the staff and to be honest, the food&the icecream are not so so good, i can classify as average and a bit pricy.

“Evening meal”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Good location, right by the marina, however if you are a couple unable to have a table overlooking the marina as these are set for 4 people only! Food was good, in our case service was also good however noticed around us people not experiencing the same level of service. Waited a while for our meals but not a problem as we were in no rush. Shared a desert as both so full following pizza and pasta. Probably the most reasonably priced italian on the marina however set up inside perhaps looked more fit for a restaurant, outside table set up resembled a beach cafe. Never the less had an enjoyable meal.

“Excellent food, pity about the terrible staff!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We have been enjoying the food at Nosolo for years and always enjoyed the ambiance and service. Top notch. Sadly, since late last year the service levels have been dropping and now it's downright annoying. On our last visit the service was slow, the order came out wrong and the bill looked extremely high. On closer inspection, we found our bill had € 7.50 charge for bread sticks and two drinks that we did not order or drink. The waitress suddenly did not understand English anymore and I ended up dealing with another waitress that had no interest or sympathy whatsoever! As I had guests and did not want to start a big issue so I tucked tail and left.

Be aware and check your waiting staff.

“Poor service”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We called in on the last day of our holiday for ice-creams, crepes and coffee. It took a long time for everyone to receive the whole order and several mistakes were made.

The waitress seemed disinterested and even rolled her eyes when told that she has brought out the wrong drink.

The crepes are great none the less.

Was going to try this restaurant for dinner but didn't get round to going. On passing in the evening though, the food did look very nice.
