I came here by myself as was really close to where I was staying, food was exceptionally good and fresh, didn't break bank either. Nice spot! I would highly recommend if in the area. I ordered the carpaccio and some bruschetta parma, delicious!

It is frequented by employees from the vicinity during lunch. The meal is usually good in Flying Ship. The pizza is "North Italian" style. I never feel stuffed nor hungry after a meal here.

Visit for a work related Christmas party and dinner with around 40 people. Food and service were both good and fast. Our group was fairly loud and the staff was very accommodating. Biggest drawback was a lack of parking for that many car.

I visited with 15 colleagues but came before in a group of 3, they managed us very well with food and drink. We mainly had pizzas (really nice calzone ) with some pasta dishes that were also good. Recommended. A short walk from the s-bahn as well as several hotels (as others have mentioned).

We had a company supper, where the staff was not friendly enough, probably knew that baksis is not to be expected. The waiter did not know what a ceasar salad is. Sorry this is a no go.

Very close to the Hotel Ibis, literally just round the corner. Enjoyed the Bruschetta followed by a pasta dish. Lots of families on the night of my visit. Pizzas looked good and the waiters boxed up any leftovers. Clean, tidy, good service from the staff and reasonably priced.

Thank Trevor P
