“We Loved It”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

We went here for dinner one night and had a great night. The atmosphere is quite nice. The restaurant is covered, but open to air on all sides (much like everything in Hikkaduwa). The service was good, and the food excellent. We had some bruschetta, gnocci, pasta and pizza. Everything was good and the prices reasonable. I suppose by Sri Lanka standards, it is not super cheap but we thought that it was a fair value. They have wine, but we did not partake as wine in Sri Lanka tends to be expensive everywhere.

We would return in the future.

“Food just ok, Service needs improving”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

We were recommended this place from the Asian Jewel Boutique Hotel as they were full. We arrived, we were pointed in the direction of a random table, so we sat ourselves down. Old waitresses didn't have an order pad, and chose to memorize order, I asked about a pate bruchetta to start, but we decided to have a pasta each and pizza to share. 10 minutes later, the pate arrived! We didnt grumble, it was cheap and was ok. When that plate was cleared along with cutlery, we got told to keep our knives and forks by the waitress, strange, was she on washing duty??? Pizza came, that was fine. My ravioli was nice, my partners fish pasta was very salty. I asked for a coke 2 separate occasions, no luck, never arrived so we left

Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

AMAZING food here! So good we went two nights in a row. Lovely atmosphere and decor: modern, stylish, clean. Pizzas were so good and the chilli oil mmmmmm
Beers reasonably priced and ice cold. Pizza approx 950 rupees but very big and very worth it.
Great place, don't miss out. 5 mins from main strip x

“Worst Pizza in Lanka”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

Disinterested owners and staff, over priced food and poor quality!
I don't often write reviews, but we had such a bad experience that I felt I should, for the sake of others.

“Well worth the time and money”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

We know it's Sri Lanka, but I think we can be forgiven for this little weak side track after two weeks of rice&curry...

We went in a bit cautious, reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, where some people can't just resist to give terrible ratings when something is not exactly as they want it...

Well let me tell you, this place deserves to be ranked excellent...Packed with people, this is not just one of the best restaurants in Sri Lanka (we went around a bit in last two weeks) but one of the best Italian places east of Rome, period. Pasta is al dente and tasty, calzones massive and pizzas so nice and with proper thin crust, full of flavour, just enough spicy and serious 12" size. You can even get a real espresso and cappuccino...

Staff was really quick and attentive and when you meet the amazing owners couple from Rome, you'll understand that it's not just a little business on the side. No wonder there are lots of small pizzerias popping up around Hikkaduwa, trying to emulate the success, but miles away from Spaghetti & Co.

Thanks for a great evening!
