“Spaghetti so good, true Italian style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

I have been going to PDR for a few months now and they have never let me down. The pizza by the slice is fast, tasty meal at a very reasonable price. The menu has been slowly expanding and now there are a few pasta dishes. My rule of thumb is generally to never order spaghetti SE Asia as it is usually some strange, sweet concoction. I gave Roby a chance and I was amazed with the spaghetti bolegnese.
Even if the food wasn't as great as it is, I would still tempted to hang out here with the really warm, cozy feel to the place, designed by Roby's architect brother. With Mama helping out at times, this place feels oh so welcoming.

“This is really a good place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Travelling through the Mekong delta with kids for a while means that you inevitably land in the occasional pizza place. And let me put it very blunt: this one is by far the best!

Run by Italian Roby, the real Italian McCoy is being served here (same is true for pasta and other
dishes). Prices are also very reasonable.

The place is a bit away from the main drag, but that makes it only more worthwhile once you found it.

“Friendly and helpful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

The owner was very friendly and helpful! He made sure we got exactly what we wanted. The "slice" isn't super huge, so if you're really hungry I recommend getting a full pizza. My friend and I both really enjoyed our slices!

“Yea not so hot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Maybe real Italian pizza has hot dogs on it but I don't think so. The pizza is gross and the lasagna wasn't the best. I'd stick to the other western restaurants. And the prices at this place aren't worth what you get.
