2 bowls of pasta, one coca cola and CHF 3.- for nothing!
Will they charge you because you breath?

We asked the owner why CHF 3.- is added to the final bill as the coca cola was already invoiced for 5 CHF, he said because it mentionned on the menu for people who are not drinking there is a supplement of 3CHF. I'm not drinking while I'm having lunch or diner so what? I'm forced to pay for nothing? Without mentioning that the waiter is watching over your plate every 5 minutes to see if you have finished your meal, as soon as we put the fork down he is taking your plate and ask you if you want a coffee or check!

We try to discuss with him and in the middle of our question he just left and ignore us until we pay! what a bad service and attitude ... poor guy! Respect your client and be polite sure it will help you!

One of the best pizzas Ive eaten ... a cosy and friendly pizza place with a quirk that you sit at the bar to eat and the chef does his stuff in front of you...

While the pizze are good, the pasta is below average. Worst is how they treat you! We (party of four) were squeezed on a table for three. When we started ordering with a pizza to share for two, we were told if we don't order three dishes they will not serve us.... We hadn't even finished our order which actually was four dishes.... Then they do not accept any credit or debit card and only give you a handwritten check. Honi soit qui mal y pense....
For me they are crooks!
We will never come back!

Small spot and great Pizza. But they charged for not ordering any drinks, without warning us. They charged 12CHF because we didn't order drinks. When I questioned the charge they said they asked if we wanted anything to drink, but we said tap water would be fine.

Be warned about the drink charge. But go for the pizza.

In a rather small space situated around a horseshoe bar counter with a view of the pizza oven, this place rocks! long list of innovative pizzas with perfectly thin crusts. Interesting (small) wine list compliments the food very well. Manager/barman does a great job in keeping glasses full and the pizzas coming.......
