Ma c'è una volta che accetta le critiche con garbo? A volte si impara, non vedo perchè ogni volta cercare una scusa..

Se la domanda l'ho capita, riguardo alle critiche, certo che le accetto perchè è con le critiche che si costruisce qualche cosa!!!!!

Gent. Signor Borin ho ossevato che lei per giustificare i suoi prezzi, quando un cliente si lamenta per il conto salato, usa come metro di paragone pizzeria e agriturismo quando invece dovrebbe farlo con pari sue tipologie di locazioni e servizi, in quanto potrebbe risultare offensivo. Detto ciò solo per ricordarle che anche in pizzeria ci sono persone che lavorano con passione e amore e che anche la pizza è un'arte saperla preparare oltre al fatto che è il piatto più famoso al mondo ( noi lo facciamo dal 1967 ),certo ce ne sono di buone e meno come d'altronde anche ristoranti tanto blasonati che se la tirano tanto che ti propongono il meglio del meglio locale per poi accorgersi che non sempre e' cosi, oppure quando chiedi del pranzo di nozze e ti soffocano con la parola wedding ......è tutto wedding.......Ad Arquà Petrarca come ad Abano Terme gentile Signore si chiama MATRIMONIO. Ricordo che alla base del ns lavoro c'è RISPETTO e UMILTÀ. Spero che questa mia sia servita per farle usare altri metri di giudizio in futuro. Distinti saluti.

Stylish and elegant, the restaurant is located at the center of a large garden with colorful flower beds, olive trees, green lawns and a terrace with incomparable views. You can have dinner outside under cool pergolas or inside in the cozy and bright rooms.
