After reading the reviews , thought of trying this restaurant out. Not impressed with the food . Service was excellent but their baked pasta had a funny old cheese taste. Pizzas were also not the best. Chairs were not wiped and had food on them . Tables were sticky. I personally wouldn't come back.

Such a lovely dinner. Great service and piping hot food. Will definitely be back. Delicious seafood pasta and seafood ravioli.

This place has a wonderful atmosphere and good Italian food. The portions are good and the food never disappoints. The music can be a bit loud during the day. The staff are great and very attentive.

Pizza, pasta, prego fayre, great atmosphere, friendly staff, decent food and drink. I liked the range of starters, and the very large range of pizzas, that we just liberally shared between 8. Got a bit rowdy with other groups, and the toilet facilities are a bit on the undercooked side, but for an Englishman, it was a very cheap night... More

Visited Topo Ginio again to see if they can do even better than last time... And the did! They over delivered and the pizza I had this time was even better than before (didn't even know it could get better) my wife had one of the house wines and she was happy with what the waiter suggested. All in all... More

The best pizza my wife and I have ever had! Great prices and great service! If you want world class pizza and your in Greenside, do yourself a favour and go sit down with a loved one or friend. You won't be disappointed
