Went there to celebrate a colleagues anniversary. The restaurant itself is large and decorated in a very weird and inconsistent way. The owner definitely wants the place to come across stylish, but is not willing to invest money. The result is simply ugly. Service is...More

We loved the Pizza before. We cannot speak about any other dishes, as all we ever ordered was their pizzas. Here's the important part.... The quality of their ingredients have decreased significantly! The pizza WAS incredible but the dough is now "doughy" and tasteless and...More

I had a shard on my pizza. Ok, this can happen. BUT: The boss didn't show up, until we wanted to pay and explicitly asked for him. And he only said, that he was busy before.

Its the second time for us to be there. It's actually a place combining restaurant and bar. Really cozy and chill. Feel like a local family restaurant from the outlook but somehow stylish inside, "surprisingly". The food are generally good. I'd say Pizza is way...More

We love il Postino, housed in an old Postoffice where I used to send my Christmas cards off in the old days. Great 'Holzofenpizzas'. Should include some more choice to the white wine list (by the glass)
