Returning to Arenco Tower after some years, it was a pleasant surprise to find this cafe at floor level. Cosy and stylish and with expected selections of cafe style food and beverages.

Potential to be great however let down by bad customer service. Very inflexible. Don’t change an order once placed. You are firmly told it’s not possible. Often told something isn’t available only to watch a new tray be delivered from the kitchen and always check the take away cups. Often a large is only half full.

Visited this place with my husband who came here a few times before. We ordered burrata salad which was a huge disappointment, burrata was not fresh, salad leaves were brown and i had to take out a spoiled tomato.
I definitely did not want to eat the salad after that, the pizza we ordered was actually pretty decent.
The service is super slow and waiters look sleepy. Im definitely not coming back, there are many far better Italian alternatives

Dear Slava, thank you for visiting us and for taking the time to write your feedback.
We are sorry to read that your experience was not what you expected. In the last week, I have been personally investigating on what happened and shared your comments with both the chef and the manager. They would like to assure you that the restaurant only uses quality and fresh ingredients: vegetables are delivered and prepared daily, while the burrata comes fresh from Italy.
I hope you and your husband could give us a chance to make it up to you, by coming as our guests to enjoy our signature pizza.
If you prefer you can write us a message on our Facebook page. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Kind Regards,
Federica Magaraggia

My customer and I waited 20mins to get some attention so in the end, I went up to the barista. The food was ok. We ordered a bruschetta with burrata to share which was very nice - it had cherry tomatoes topping the bread and balanced in acidity.
The eggs Benedict was quite average and my customer was quite happy with her soup.
Coffee was quite weak.
